How to Convert Note 2 into S5/Note 3 Hybrid Phone!

howto-convert-note2-s5note3-hybrid-phone-1

Probably the coolest thing you can do on a Note 2 is root and install custom ROMs.  Well, a lot of people just “don’t get it” and stay on stock firmware, which actually is super laggy and you are limited to features Samsung gives you.

There’s a better way to use your Note 2 by installing custom ROMs that give you Galaxy S5 and Note 3 features.  Of course, that is if you want to take advantage over everything that your Note 2 has to offer and root it.

For AT&T, T-Mobile, GT-N7105, Canadian, and GT-N7100, you can grab the Ditto Note 3 ROM, which is

For this week’s Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 ROM of the week, check out what I have been running as my daily driver on my Note 2.

The Moon ROM is a full-fledged Note 10.1 ROM in Note 2 form. Based on TouchWiz Android 4.1.2, the Moon ROM brings you the best of “floating” multi-window to your Note 2.

I’ve tried countless ROMs in the past with similar tablet format but none of them have been really usable as daily driver.

The Moon ROM does it great by giving you the option to switch easily between Phone or Tablet mode, meaning you can run Note 10

After rooting your Galaxy Note 2, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to make a backup ROM at least once.
