Based on the latest Android 4.3 MK4 Sprint firmware, Venum Ice ROM gives you the best of Android 4.3 without all the Sprint bloatware.

If you have tried previous version of Venum Ice ROM then you would probably love the latest version, which also comes fully themed in black, white, and grey.  The theming on Venum Ice ROM is a piece of art by itself, near flawless theme that will complement your phone very well.

meanbeanrom-galaxynote2

For this week’s AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, GT-N7105, or Canadian Galaxy Note 2 users, check out the latest Mean Bean ROM.

Based on latest Verizon Android 4.3 TouchWiz firmware, Mean Bean ROM by XDA developer MikeyXDA aims to bring you a faster, mean-and-lean TouchWiz experience without the lag and many little features to make it simply awesome.

Mean Bean ROM’s core feature is its raw performance along with zero-screen wake lag.  I have used Mean Bean ROM many times in the past on the Verizon Note 2 but it’s finally available for other Note 2 users.

Slim Kat ROM for Galaxy Note 2!

slimkat-rom-galaxynote2

For this week’s Note 2 ROM of the week, check out Slim Kat ROM, available for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, GT-N7100, and GT-N7105 variants.

I have been using Slim ROMs (same developers) for awhile since they had ROMs for the Galaxy S2.  Their focus has always been on a “slim” ROM, just as the name implies.  In fact, their default DPI (dots per inch) is lower than stock settings, which results in bigger resolution screen (or at least to the eyes).

Having such a feature on my Galaxy S2 wasn’t too pleasant as my screen was too s

resurrection-remix-rom-galaxynote2

For this week’s Note 2 GT-N7100 ROM of the week, check out latest version of Resurrection Remix ROM!

Based on Android 4.2.2, Resurrection Remix ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) that is a “remix” of many cool features from other AOSP ROMs like AOKP, ParanoidAndroid ROMs.

What I like most about Resurrection Remix ROM is that these builds are built and optimized specifically for the GT-N7100, giving you the user the best AOSP experience you could ever have.  You wonR

cm11-rom-android4.4.2-galaxynote2

For this week’s Galaxy Note 2 ROM of the week, check out the latest CM11 ROM (again).

What’s changed since couple weeks back we took a look?

Not too much but CM11 ROM is now based on latest Android 4.4.2 sources, which comes with additional stability, performance, and bugs zapped.  This is a work in progress but CM11 ROM seems pretty stable enough to recommend as daily driver for those of you who want as near pure Android as possible while running Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
