CM12 Update and Team UB ROM for Galaxy Note 2!


For those of you looking for the best Android 5.0.2 Lollipop ROM, here’s a quick update on the latest CM12 and similar builds.

Note: GPS is broke on all CM12 builds currently including UB ROM!!!  If this is an issue, do not flash this ROM!!!

For Sprint and Verizon Note 2, there are now “official” CM12 builds, these are nearly perfect and everything should work out of the box.

For AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Canadian, and GT-N7105 users, try Team UB ROM, which is essentially CM12 ROM but with lots more customization added.

The UB ROM comes with additional features like AudioFX app (for tweaking your sound, taken from OnePlus One), App bar, Head up notifications, Gesture Anywhere, lockscreen customization, custom system animations, and some more.  And yes, mobile hotspot/wifi tether works out of the box for all carriers and models.

Overall, this is a nice development, although not perfect yet (as GPS is still in the works), if you don’t use your navigation much (perhaps you commute to work) then definitely give these guys a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Main problem I found with all these rom is it does not have the fixes that samsung does by software. Therefore, phone occasionally fails in corner case. Mostly I see it wen I use camera. I changed back to rooted stock rom, everything works.

    I’ve noticed some interesting things about this rom. I use the SGH-T889. On the UB rom, Google Play Music and TV would crash the phone with multiple “stopped working” notifications. I even uninstalled with with Titanium backup. It automatically reinstalled. Ugh! Out of frustration, I’ve gone back to my old rom. The weird thing is, I went to Liquid Smooth’s Lollipop rom and ended up with the same issue. My work around was to disable that app; no big deal since I don’t use it anyway. Check out the Liquid Smooth 4.0 nightly rom. It has some nice features on it.

    Hi All,

    Last week I downloaded the CM12 ROM for GT-N7100 (international) version. Good job by the developer, really appreciate his efforts. It was really smooth and fast. However, I noticed a few issues like;
    a) when I get a call there is no display of the caller details or phone number. The screen is blank. Though I hear the ringtone it does not display any details. I had to unlock the phone go to the phone menu and select resume current call. Not sure why it behaves like that. I checked the settings and I had selected the options to display caller details, but still did not work. Also I keep getting the message ‘’ failed or closed abruptly something like that.
    b) For other applications it works fine, but occasionally the app is forced to shutdown without any warning, other than the message ‘’ closed. Though it was not frequent, it happened couple of times for facebook.
    c) Whatsapp works fine, but the contact details does not get updated in Whatsapp.
    d) WiFi was working fine.
    e) Memory management needs to be fine tuned I believe, because when there were few applications running the crash frequency of the apps increased. Also twice the phone rebooted without warning.

    These are some of the observations I made during the brief period I ran CM12 (cm-12-20150116-UNOFFICIAL-n7100) version of Lollipop.

    I had to revert back to my earlier ROM (Dr.Ketan V11) temporarily till I can download either Kit Kat or updated version of Lollipop. guess it is going to be a wait for sometime before I get the stable daily rider version.

    I have an sgh-t889v. on the ub rom, I have no data, but my apn info is correct. I tried re flashing the modem, it didn’t fix it. I don’t know why it’s doing that.

  13. Se7enSays says:

    Hey Max, Thanks for the work you put into this. I’ve been with you since my first HTC Evo root. Now I have been using your info for my sprint note 2. I installed CM12 with gapps 5.01 and it seemed to work correctly, however when I turn the phone on, I can’t use it due to the constant pop-ups for google services that failed. Do you have any clue how I can fix this? I’m using TWRP and since I was coming from CWM none of my backups work. What can I do to make this ROM work???????

    • Se7enSays says:

      So I got it to load… I was using an older version of TWRP. So now I’ve got it, but I can’t do much still since the keyboard won’t load. Ugh! This is thrilling and mind-numbing at the same time!!!!!!!

  14. roy says:

    Hey max ibwas able to install the ROM, live it, but on thing I have a sgh-i317m from telcel Mexico, after I installed is the phone says its a gt n7105 is it normal, when I try to flash a new ROM which model do I use, thanks

    • Ryan R. says:

      I’d say use the SGH-I317M model number. The GT-7105 is what the ROM was built for. I have the T889 and it says its a GT-7105.

  15. Terry says:

    no matter what cm rom ive put on my Verizon galaxy note 2 its been a joke. its never something small that’s wrong with the rom either with this verison gapps doesn’t work and spams my background so I cant set it up so I reinstall without gapps now theres no keyboard. the cm11 4.4 wont allow me to manually set my apn cuz it wont save no matter what update these guys throw at it ive tried the newest one 5.1.1 and the damn phone wont hang up calls when u hit end the only solution was to put it in airplane mode for a sec and turn off airplane mode when it hung up and the vid player glitches out when u try to fast forward thtough the vid… plz guys I know u work hard on this shit but plz try to unf**k the rom b4 releasing it. plz fix the apn issue in 4.4 cuz id prefer using that instead of 5.whatever… for u galaxy note 2 users out there the only aftermarket rom that ever worked perfectly right out of the box was jedi x then all of a sudden the ram started getting overloaded and it worked great for 2 yrs before that
