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.)

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!

  13. Tim says:

    Hi Max I love this rom but I can’t figure out how to increase the call volume on this rom. When I make calls it’s just to low I could barley here them and people complain that I sound low as well. I tried changing the earpiece output value in etc folder but I’m not sure what to set it to or will this even work. I also noticed that fast charge is not supported. Is there another kernel I could use to enable it? It takes to long to charge my battery. I’m using the Sprint version Galaxy Note 2.

    • Krish says:

      Anyone have issues with speaker phone volume on Note 2?

      everything else is running smoothly but my speakerphone volume is much quieter than stock. anyone find a fix?

      • M. Elsayed says:

        Hello, I have the same issue, the sound durring the calls is very low, you have to make it lower then high again to here good. But sometimes it not works cause of screen off!

        I have also problem with Facebook and Instagram videos, it’s hanging up first 3-5 seconds before it works from second 3-5 or something like that!

        Can’t even upload videos to Instagram.

  14. Rick says:

    Most AOSP ROMS have a shortcut to Wifi Tether so you don’t have to navigate thru the settings just to turn on/off. (usually swiping the wifi icon on Notification Drawer)

    Does this not have a shortcut to wifi tether? Or is it the Theme that removed it or doesn’t allow it?

  15. Andy Zhao says:

    I love the look and smooth feel. But I’m running into an issue.
    I have the SPH L900 (Sprint) but it doesn’t register the network. It just says “No Service.” I’ve rebooted and reflashed but it still doesn’t activate. Help?

    • Andy Zhao says:

      After a lot of research I’ve discovered the problem is with the APN. My APN’s are blank but everytime I try to add one and hit the save, it does not work. Help?

      • DC says:

        Man im having the same problem, i don’t know how anyone else got this to work. Maybe they don’t need phone service for messaging. And just showing cm11 off on their phone becuase apns do not save on tmobile galaxy note 2.

  16. The Jstir says:

    Hey Max this rom is great, i only have one problem. When I make a call the screen goes off and I can’t get the screen to come back on. None of the buttons bring the screen back on and power button ends the call. After ending the call phone returns to normal. This only happens when making and receiving calls. Any suggestions for me. Thank for your feed back
