Overall, the CyanideL ROM is going to make your Note 2 up to speed of the latest Android 5.1 along with load of customization you will appreciate. So, if you haven’t tried this ROM, definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Download Shift Kernel for Android 5.1 (for all AT&T, T-Mobile, GT-N7105, Canadian, and Verizon)
Download Shift Kernel for Android 5.0.2 (for Sprint)
Download Android 5.1 Gapps (DO NOT USE older Gapp as you will FC!!!)
WARNING – This ROM does NOT WORK WITH SAFESTRAP!
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install kernel, install Gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system. For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
