Android 4.3 ROM plus Root is finally available for Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 users as of couple days ago in the form of CyanogenMod ROM 10.2!

This is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) with Google’s latest Android 4.3 baked in with root on CyanogenMod 10.2.

Although this ROM does have couple bugs (screenshot and Task Switcher image preview not working), it is available right now so you can try Android 4.3 before anyone else on the Note 2.

With it, you will be able to try out Android 4.3’s latest features (such as improved graphics engine, better battery life) along with some of the tweaks CyanogenMod Team has baked in like DSP manager.  Performance seems not too bad, getting near 6000 on Quadrant.

As for stability, although this ROM is one of the betas, you should still be able to use it as daily driver.  For now, I am personally just glad Android 4.3 is finally available for the Note 2.

For those of you brave or impatient, check it out this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download Android 4.3 CM10.2 ROM (For GT-N7100 ONLY!!!)

Download Gapps

To install, reboot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot.

You can get the latest Android 4.3 Photosphere camera here.

For camera still shots, use the Focal app instead of the camera app (as the regular camera is broken).  But video recording, PhotoSphere works fine.

    hi to all,

    i have already used and experienced this rom 3 days back.
    it has many bugs, there is just a slight change can see through change log by visiting cm”s website.
    at times camera hangs, cell broadcast messages keeps appearing even if you put off all the options.
    waiting for a stable rom as even cm says its just a beta rom.

    i have a question to you,
    i have tried almost all roms,
    no matter which 4.2.2 rom i use my note 2 battery drains in a day with a normal use.
    when i was using alliance rom v1 it was like almost 3 days of battery backup with a normal use.
    suggest me any rom which has best battery backup, features can be compromised.

    Hi all,

    I recently try three rom on my N7105 listed below, most stable will be CM-10.1 nightly running 4.2.2

    CM – 10.2 20130801 4.2.2 try this one first. Flash Rom ok. Google apps does not work well. Maps mute on navigation. Google translation also no volume.

    CM – 10.2 201308030 4.3. Android Keyboard cannot load. Have same problem with Google apps.

    Try to revert back to 4.2.2. Flash room fail.

      Try an app in the play store called “alsamixer” to mod your maximum volume on headphones and speaker only downside is that there is no apply on boot options and the UI kind of sucks but works well for me on CM 10.1

    Hey Mike,

    Amazing work, i have been following every single video of you presenting those ROM’s in a very quick smooth way.

    What i’d like to know is, Which ROM of all the ROM’s you’ve tried, has the best batterylife?

    This would be including different Kernels, MOD’s or a different base of Android.

    Please hit me back 😉

    I’ve been using CM 10.2 since Friday night on my Verizon Note II. Just minor video glitches so far. They did a great job.

  7. Ify Michael says:

    Pretty cool! though no much changes, as I’ve tried the ROM 3day back. STIL much to 2 b done…..can’t type, it brings this error message that “unfortunately adroid keyboard has stop working” and many other more…..of what use is it if I can’t type?
    we don’t know how soon updates will be rolling out for GT-N7100, so we would have the TouchWiz version and also the custom version of TouchWiz, well we have no option but to wait.

    Right now I’m back to my BobCat Rom that has improved my battery for about 25% or more; which gives me the else to switch between any UI and many more.

    Well, thanks to the Developers for working so hard, bringing the update to GT-N7100 so quickly…..Good work from u guyz.
    Thank Max for posting this, sharing the update with us, I have learnt alot fom u.

  9. Ashpokemon says:

    After flashing number of cm roms when i installes the illusion rom my phones imei was changed and now on flashing every other cm rom or touch whiz roms my imei doesnt recover .So PLease help me to recover my imei

    • Max Lee says:

      unroot using odin and stock firmware, that will usually recover ur imei.

      • Owie says:

        Thanks for the reply Max, big fan.

        But unluckily I tried to unroot and flashed odin stock firmware and I didn’t get any signal, I thought it was the modem. But it was my IMEI. So what I did was to install your BobCat rom since IMEI was okay, backed up my IMEI with 5irom toolbox and installed desired rom, restored IMEI and then everything was okay.

        Hope this helps out others who would encounter similar problems. I have the link to the tut on how i did it to my reply to ashpokemon.

        More power to you Max, thank you so much for all the updates. loving my note 2 more and more.

    Hi, I have managed to solve my IMEI problem and I was able to get back my signal.

    You need to back up and restore your IMEI using this method:

    Now, if you don’t have a back up of your IMEI, what I did was:
    1. to flash BoBCat Rom because it has the correct IMEI after flashing,
    2. then I used the tool to back up my IMEI.
    3. Flashed the ROM I wanted; and if the IMEI is messed up
    4. Install the 5irom toolbox and restored my IMEI.
    5. Reboot phone

    Everything is okay now.

    Hi Max,
    I’m the one who bought 3 unlocking codes for the same Note 2 for couple of companies and they were the same codes, and it didn’t work. You told me to use the free unlocking method on the site. I have searched and searched, and I didn’t find it. Please guide me to it, or email me the link please please please.. Thanks Max
    oh, i’m not giving up, I’m going to search for it again now… :o)
