SOKP ROM for Galaxy Note 2!

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

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, SOKP ROM for Galaxy Note 2 brings you a ton of customization and features including multi-window, floating multi-window (experimental), and more.

JellyKat ROM for Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100! [KitKat + AirCommand]

For those of you who have been waiting for Android 4.4.2 KitKat from Samsung, we have some great news for you, there’s a bunch of custom ROMs out there with the leaked Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

One of them I really like is the JellyKat ROM, which is a custom ROM for the GT-N7100 Note 2.  With JellyKat ROM, you will be able to experience some of the latest features such as Floating Pen Windows, just like found on the Note 3.

Venum Ice ROM for Sprint Galaxy Note 2! [Android 4.3]

For this week’s Sprint Note 2 ROM of the week, check out the latest Venum Ice ROM.

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. Also, having a dark theme such as Venum Ice may give you longer battery life as Note 2 has an AMOLED screen which uses less(no) energy with darker colors.

Mean Bean ROM for Galaxy Note 2! [AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon/GT-N7105/Canadian]

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.

Slim Kat ROM for Galaxy Note 2!

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).

Omni ROM for Galaxy Note 2! [OmniSwitch]

For this week’s Galaxy Note 2 ROM of the week, check out (again) the latest Omni ROM.  Omni ROM is available for all Note 2 variants including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, GT-N7105, and GT-N7100.

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Omni ROM brings you more stability than ever with everything working out of the box. (multi-window is not working yet but should be soon…)

Omni ROM with Android 4.4.2 for Galaxy Note 2! [AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon/GT-N7100/GT-N7105/Canadian]

Also for this week’s ROM of the week, check out Omni ROM with latest Android 4.4.2.

UPDATE: Please see latest version of Omni ROM here instead by clicking HERE!!!

Very similar to CM11 but slightly different, Omni ROM brings you some interesting combination of customization including notification count, network speed indicator, screen recording (still work in progress but may work on some Note 2 models), Active Display, and some more.  It’s not a TON different from CM11 but we are still seeing early stages of custom ROM development for Android 4.4.2 so this is probably better than nothing.

CM11 ROM with Android 4.4.2 for Galaxy Note 2! [AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon/Canadian/GT-N7105]

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.

CM11 ROM for Galaxy Note 2! [AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon/Canadian/GT-N7105/GT-N7100]

For this week’s Note 2 ROM of the week, check out CM11 ROM.

Last week we did see a usable CM11 ROM but with video replay broken and other bugs like data being a bit wonky for Sprint Note 2 users.

Well, we’ve got some great news for you, latest CM11 ROM builds for all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, GT-N7105, and GT-N7100 Note 2s are nearly perfect in terms of having everything working out of the box including data/4G LTE, WiFi, camera/camcorder, YouTube, video replay, bluetooth, etc…etc…

CM11 Android 4.4 KitKat ROM for Sprint/Verizon Galaxy Note 2!

For those of you with a Sprint SPH-L900 or Verizon SCH-i605 Note 2, you are not out of luck either on Android 4.4 KitKat.  In fact, you get the better version as the CM11 ROM for Sprint and Verizon Note 2 has camera/camcorder both working flawless out of the box.
