For those of you who have been waiting for a solid Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM, it’s been a pretty long wait for the Galaxy Note 2 series. One of the coolest things about the Note series and the Note 2 is that there are custom ROM developers who actually make it possible for users to upgrade to the latest Lollipop.
I have actually been flashing a bunch of beta CM12 ROMs for the last couple weeks on my Note 2 and boy, the beginning was ugly. There were lots of problems like camera not working or even data not working. Fortunately as of this week, I can finally say there’s an Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM that’s stable enough to run as daily driver.
This is the latest CM12 ROM that’s available for all the Note 2 variants including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, GT-N7105, and GT-N7100. (Sorry, if you are using AT&T or Verizon with locked bootloader, you are out of luck unless you have rooted your phone way before and you have CWM or TWRP installed. DOES NOT WORK WITH SAFESTRAP!)
