For this week’s Note 2 ROM of the week for all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, GT-N7100, and GT-N7105, check out Carbon ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.3, Carbon ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) with customizable transition animations, AOKP-like ROM Control (but slightly different taste), and great performance/battery life out of the box.
I’ve actually been using ProBAM/PACMan ROM for almost a week now but recently switched to Carbon ROM as I really love the customizable transition animations. It’s definitely refreshing to be able to choose my own animations on my own phone.
Other than that, Carbon ROM provides pretty much every feature AOKP ROM Control features, slightly different in some ways with new features like Active Display and many others. And there are some nice hidden easter egg features on the ROM such as your contacts showing up with dialer in mini boxes, I have not found them all yet. (If you see any cool ones, don’t forget to post them in the comments box below.)
Overall, I’ve been watching Carbon ROM since its birth couple months back and they’ve come a long ways and certainly one of the best Android 4.3 custom ROMs you can flash “right now”. This may change as new developers are always coming up with new, innovate features but for now, Carbon ROM really is lookin’ good so try it this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Download Android 4.3 Gapps (for all, DO NOT USE Android 4.2 Gapps, they will FC!)
Download Flash Player APK (if you want flash player)
DownloadAndroid 4.3 PhotoSphere (if you want photosphere, but may force close so make a backup of yourGallery app using Titanium Backup app before installing! )
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format or wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
You should also be able to install it on Korean Note 2 with SJKernel.
Check out Note 2 S-Pen Altenative apps you can use with AOSP ROMs.
If you need ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings-like feature to run your apps in tablet/hybrid/custom DPI mode, check this out.
