Update N8000XXCMC4 XSA Australia Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

Samsung is now releasing another Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Australia’s unbranded Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 WiFi and 3G  (GT-N8000). The new build number is “N8000XXCMC4” an update from the first 4.1.2 released “N8000XXCMB1”, but it looks like it still has the same baseband version of  “N8000XXCLL1” .  So, I may consider that this update will not bring some visual changes to the default featured apps and features that was already added before. This update might targets some enhancements and improvements on the system for greater stability. On later March 4.1.2 Jelly Bean updates brings a faster and smoother browsing experience on contacts, SMS, dialer, emails and even on gaming.
