CM10.1, ParanoidAndroid, and AOKP ROMs are all great ROMs developed by some of the best Android developers and I would highly recommend each of them for anyone who wants to experience the best on Note 2 custom ROMs. Well, what if you wanted all the features in one ROM?
There’s a ROM for that, the PACMan ROM for Galaxy Note 2 brings CM10.1, ParanoidAndroid, and AOKP ROMs into one single ROM, bringing you literally every feature pound-for-pound, except you get it in a nice, little package, in one ROM.
This is one of my favorite ROMs of all time nowadays. Although some of the previous versions were very buggy at times, I can testify that the latest Android 4.2.2-based PACMan ROM version 20 is stable enough to recommend as a daily driver for everyone looking to get on the bandwagon.
Inside you will find literally everything you can in the latest CM10.1, AOKP, and ParanoidAndroid ROMs. Battery life? Not so bad at all, in fact it’s pretty good.
Tethering? Works just fine for hours, I’ve been using it myself to wifi tether from my Bangkok hotel room for the last couple days.
Stability? It’s pretty darn stable I think now, otherwise I wouldn’t be posting it. You might still have problems but certainly I can say it’s one of the best releases I’ve tried and you should give it a try this weekend and let me know what you think.
To install, reboot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset (unless coming from another AOSP ROM), install ROM, and reboot.
Once successfully booted into ROM, if you don’t see Play Store for some reason, reboot into recovery, install Gapps, and reboot. But Gapps should be included for most variants.
