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.

Wait, it gets better as you can also enjoy Note 3 AirCommand feature on your Note 2.  JellyKat ROM also comes with a graphical AROMA installer, which allows you to fully customize your apps or even add custom theme to your AirCommand.

Other notable features include 4 main themes to choose from (LG G2, Galaxy S5, JellyKat, or stock), multi-window themer, Sony Xperia apps, keyboards, Viper4Android, Wanam Xposed, and some more. All of this can be customize to your liking in AROMA installer.

Overall, JellyKat ROM gives you the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat along with many goodies you will enjoy. So, definitely give it a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download JellyKat ROM for Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 [V5 is here NEW!]

Download Google Fix APK

To install, simply reboot into CWM or TWRP recovery, wipe/factory reset, install ROM, then reboot.  If you get errors on boot, reboot into CWM/TWRP, format /system, and re-install ROM. (I had to do that, 2nd time was the charm though.)

Also, Google Play Store is broken.  To fix simply open Google Fix APK file with your MyFiles app to fix your Google sign in.

Having Wifi problems?  Flash Dr. Ketan’s wifi fix using ODIN for fix.

  2. anders says:

    great rom. cant turn on wifi thou.

  3. anders says:

    Bluetooth works by so seems like a software issue.
    And wifi worked before I flashed this Rom.

  4. MohamedG says:

    Wifi didn’t work here too, it’s auto shuts! The solution rovided in the link above didn’t work too, any ideas ?

  5. DR SHUKLA says:

    The wifi problem also occurs when you flash DN3 custom rom(x da forum) and they suggest to fix it by Dr Ketan’s patch which runs fine on android version 4.3.2(DN3).If any body wish please try it out.

  6. MohamedG says:

    Happy to tell that Dr Ketan’s patch made it work. Thanks DR SHUKLA :))

    I have previously flashed omni switch and lost my root privilege, do I have to re root first then root again or what.
    Please Max advice

    • Max Lee says:

      There’s usually a menu to enable root on some AOSP ROMs under Developer Options Settings OR you can just flash SuperSU.

  8. kazzaz says:

    dear Max
    I can’t find developer menu. Also how can I flsh super user to getback root back.

    Hey Max, any idea if this ROM works for the i317 (AT&T / t0tleatt) Note II variant?

    I’m using “AOSB” 4.4, on my i317 and really do love it. Battery life has been great for a non-touchwiz Note II rom, 4G LTE works great, and the system is stable without strange wakelocks and software issues. Wifi works out of the box too.

    The only downside is that the camera is bugged– even though tap to focus works in every camera app I’ve tried, unfortunately after taking a picture, the camera ‘reverts’ to a previous setting before the tap to focus. It generally only affects close-up shots, but I take a lot of those! (check scanning, PDF scanning, etc!)

    So I need to leave AOSB and am curious about getting a Touchwiz based 4.4 instead of AOSP based! Those Samsung drivers outta have my camera fixed in no time 🙂

    • Max Lee says:

      Oh this ROM isn’t for i317 but you can install any GT-N7105 ROMs. But KitKat should be coming soon to N7105/i317 also.

    • Maxime says:

      look at my reply. i tried it on the 1317m and it installed. now i am going to try and flash a baseband and see.

  10. jason says:

    You think we will see something like this soon for the T-Mobile variant

  11. kazzaz says:

    Dear Max
    Kindly note that the download keep stopping at 494 MB.I have been trying since yesterday.

    Thanks man for the support

  12. apollooqm says:

  13. Ryan says:

    Hi max.
    This is kind of strange but I have the Tmobile version however I got my phone fixed (lcd replaced) and my phone says the model number is gt-n7105..does this mean I could install gt-n7105 roms or do u think I have to stick with gsm based roms? Also, if my phone is actually a gt-n7105 phone can I install this rom without any problems?.. Thanks.

  14. alblushi says:

    max, the rom is stuck on boot menu and never starts

  15. kiwipedia says:

  16. vishal says:

  17. Emilio Cariaga says:

    I’m using this rom. Jellykat v3 is my most favorite. The jelly bean one. But here in v4, I can say that I still like it. but the battery is not as good as the jellykat v3. For only 6 hours, from 100% – 15% for just only almost 2 hours of screen is on. Any solution? Thanks Max.

  18. apollooqm says:

  19. jem says:

    Stuck in boot loop?? Any help??

  20. Maxime says:

    Hi. I wanted to try and be adventurous and I installed it on the SGH-I317M from Canada. after the 2nd tried it installed except it does not detect my SIM card. Now When I unlocked my phone I did not put a Code i followed a Link that showed me how to unlock for free. The Point is I can confirm it works on the I317M if someone has the proper unlocked phone I believe.

  21. Maxime says:

    if only i can have a suitable baseband. i have tried 2 ( Rogers I317MVLUCMK5 and ATT I317UCUBMJ4 )so far and they dont work
    I went back to stock 4.3 and reinstalled the Rogers Baseband and it worked. so now. if anyone has any idea since I tried this on my Phone, that would be appreciated.

  30. Suresh K Madhavan says:

    A new version of Jelly Kat available at XDA. Version 5. Max, Is it recommended to download?

    • s18067 says:

      I’ve downloaded v5 and it’s better than v4. There are a few more customisation options (if you’re interested in that), and it’s more of a Note 3/S5 hybrid than before, and has S5 functions such as Ultra Power Saving Mode.

      • Suresh K Madhavan says:

        Twice tried to download the JellyKat version 5. But at 1.4gb stopping the download without downloading the balance 0.3gb. Any solution for this? Which is the best mirror site to download?

  31. zah says:

    Flashed as described
    stuck on boot loop.. 🙁
    it only gets to the fancy bootup colors, doesnt go any further

    Any Ideas??

    • s18067 says:

      On initial install of ROM, the screen stays on the coloured screen for a long time. If your screen is stuck on a black screen after the aforementioned screen, clean, install the ROM again WITHOUT installing ANY mods (i.e. just install ROM and ignore everything else). Boot, and install mods afterwards.

  32. sahill says:

    my n7100 stuck on boot i try it 3 time but still stuck on boot

  33. The dude says:

    I am also stuck on bootloop tried updating CWM to current version

    No matter what I try it gets as far as samsung logo (boot)

    I have flashed the phone with a few different roms and never got this problem before,

  34. tejsav goel says:

    hey mahn ! as subsribed by you did every step was stucked on that fancy boot loop nd the colours just moves…again i installed the rom after formating and again the same is happening with me ! 🙁
    whaaaaat to doo please help 🙁

    • The dude says:

      Hi tejsav

      Cheers for that, I am trying for 2 days now have tried different recoveries (CWM TWRP and Philz touch all current releases) and just installing the rom without any mods
      Sometimes the Install locks up (screen freezes) and have to remove battery and restart
      What I have noticed is after flashing the jellykat rom you have to pull the battery for a while before trying to boot up with no mods yet installed


      1. Download v5 and place it in your sd-card/ext-sdcard. Reboot in TWRP recovery.
      2. Wipe System/Data/Cache/Dalvik
      3. Navigate to JellyKatv5 zip and flash. This will start AROMA. Now choose your required options.

  35. The dude says:

    Finally got this rom working well jellykat v5

    Needed all the fixes keyboard and ringtone settings keeps crashing just need to find a fix for that

  43. Rootdroid86 says:

    Sooooo wanted this ROM but unfortunately after numerous attempts of clean installs with both CWmod and TWRP recoveries, I constantly get stuck at the samsung boot logo, it lasts upto half an hour and still nothing so I just end up restoring my old ROM

    • Mr Joshua says:

      Thats exactly what i have had to do, its so annoying, if they are going to submit a rom at least make sure it works before they do.

  44. bobo says:

    Anyone know how u can get fingerprint security to work. Mine crashes each time I try use it. Best ROM ever though.

  45. Mr Joshua says:

    THIS DOES NOT WORK, 6 Hours i am at this and no matter what i do its stuck at the boot screen in a loop, Can you please reply to people that took the time to read through your post here and from what i can see have just wasted their time, me included, Thanks

    • Mr Joshua says:

      My sincere apologies, after not giving up, i found a solution, Use TWRP as the lad above a few posts said, it installed first time and is working flawlessly, did not have to install any fixes so far either.
