  1. It is not a leak, but official stock ROM for German openmarket. Still have some bugs..If you have a battery drain issue, discharge your battery to 0, then plug the charger, turn on the device and let it charge till you see 100% notification under the batt. icon. After that, first UNLOCK your Note, then unplug the charger. Also you can download CPU spy from Play portal to ensure your device is going to Deep sleep mode.
