For this week’s Note 2 ROM of the Week, check out latest LiquidSmooth ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.4.4, LiquidSmooth ROM brings you the best and greatest Android 4.4.4 along with customization features you will drool over.
First up, you will get a nicely-optimized Android 4.4.4 that is bug-free out of the box (should be better than CM11). You will find amazing performance/battery life with LiquidSmooth ROM.
Customization is offered through many different features you can choose from including Active Display, HALO, HOVER, PIE Control, App Circle Sidebar, Gesture Anywhere, Shake Events, and much much more.
For camera, you can get two cameras working, AOSP and Google Camera. Make sure you flash the camera fix zip file as otherwise video recording will be laggy. With the camera fix though, both camera/camcorder works flawless out of the box including PhotoSphere, Panorama, and taking photos during video.
Overall, LiquidSmooth ROM is one of the best Android 4.4.4 custom ROMs “right now” so make a backup ROM and give this bad boy a try this week(end)!

BEFORE INSTALLING, UPGRADE your CWM Recovery to v184.108.40.206 or higher using ROM Manager App from the Play Store. Also if using TWRP, use Goo Manager app to update to v220.127.116.11 or higher. Otherwise you will FAIL during install! You can also install CWM Recovery manually here.
Sorry, this ROM is NOT COMPATIBLE with Safestrap users!
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Camera Fix, 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/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
