    Won't Let Me Update :-( Help

    Hi all, i just bought a samsung galaxy note from a local phone shop 2nd hand

    Its working fine but it says there is a system update available, so i click ok and it downloads and the phone re-boots but then i get a message saying

    Easy way to tell if your phone is rooted...

    Did you buy it from another person? If not, it's not rooted. As for updating, try downloading ODIN. It beats Kies like a drunken sailor.

    Do you know how to use ODIN?
    If no, read and understand which box need to check and which need to uncheck.

    ODIN is the safest way to flash...but if it fail will be disaster.

    Best to do clean install. Factory data reset in GB

    Then flash ICS..

    Gd luck and dont forget to really understand the procees before you jump in flashing game
