How to Convert Galaxy Note 2 into OnePlus One!


For those of you still waiting for a OnePlus One invite, here’s another way to appease your waiting time by converting your Galaxy Note 2 into OnePlus One!

Don’t know what OnePlus One is?  See our OnePlusOne unboxing video here.

You can do this easily by installing the latest CM11 ROM Snapshot M9 along with our HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion Kit.  You will be able to get pretty much every feature of OnePlus One including OnePlus One camera, lockscreen, Screencast app (screen recording app), Hexo theme, and everything except screen-off gestures (which we are working on).

Also, CM11 ROM Snapshot M9 are very stable and fast so if you’ve had problems with CM11 ROM nightlies, these snapshots should fix most of your issues.  Overall, I am having very good experience with CM11 ROM Snapshot M9 on most of my Android devices and I think they have one of the most stable AOSP ROMs out now.

So, definitely give this combo a go if you haven’t tried it, and definitely let me know what you think!

BEFORE INSTALLING, UPGRADE your CWM Recovery to v6.0.4.3 or higher using ROM Manager App from the Play Store.  Also if using TWRP, use Goo Manager app to update to v2.6.3.3 or higher.  Otherwise you will FAIL during install!  You can also install CWM Recovery manually here.

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Conversion Kit, and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)

First time installing a custom ROM?  See our Custom ROM Install Guide first!

Q: My 3G/4G LTE data is not working!!!
A: See How to Fix 3G/4G LTE data by Manually Setting APN on Android!

Q: I don’t have Play Store nor any of the Google apps!
A: You forgot to install Gapps, reboot into recovery and install it! (See above for download.)

Q: The ROM is not booting!
A: Try formatting /system and re-install ROM, sometimes the system partition gets corrupt and you may have to try 2 or 3 times before the ROM boots.

Q: How can I thank you for your tutorial?
A: I don’t take donations but if you could PLEASE subscribe to my Zedomax YouTube channel, that would help me greatly and thank you!
