Want to install a new custom ROM on your newly rooted Galaxy Note 2? Want to install a new kernel? Or perhaps you want to install a mod that comes in a zip file format.

Well, whatever it is you want to install, before you do anything, please make a backup ROM FIRST!!!

Next, you can use TWRP Recovery to install a new ROM.

For installing a new ROM, doing a “data wipe/factory reset” is recommended for most custom ROMs unless otherwise noted.

For installing a new kernel, Gapps or mods, you don’t need to do any wipes, just install.

Having trouble? Watch the video tutorial above once which explains everything in gory detail for noobs.

    I’m using TWRP as my custom recovery for my Nexus 4. Could I do the same thing with my Nexus as you did in the video? I want to install faux kernel.

    i suggest using the note 2 tool kit has everything you need to install your stock firmware, install your root, and much much more and i suggest doing your homework before installing and changing any system files on your device i swear there are warnings all over the net and on this site that state to DO YOUR HOMEWORK ON THESE INSTALLS or you can fail and forever be known as a noob lol

    I recently locked my Note 2 bootloader by accidently flashing kit kat but I managed to save all my ROM Backups on external cards. Tonight I was able to locate another Note 2 with TWRP and unlocked bootloader….I can’t seem to flash my old backed up ROMs on this other Note 2…Is that even possible? And if yes what needs to be done?
