ParanoidAndroid Team has been making some awesome progress on their new HALO floating notification feature.  Now, it’s back with cool ways to use your gestures to make notifications more effective than ever before.

With the latest ParanoidAndroid ROM version 3.60 (or 3.57), you will be able to easily swipe up to get rid of specific notification and swipe down to completely hide the HALO floating widget.

Also, when you receive multiple notifications, you can drag to the right and select the notification you want to respond to.

And you can use the HALO))) app to add any of your favorite apps to multi-task as an overlay on top of any app.

Currently, version 3.60 is available for AT&T, T-Mobile, GT-N7105, and GT-N7100 Note 2 variants and also you can get version 3.57 on Sprint.

There is also Verizon port but I don’t recommend it at the moment as HALO feature wasn’t working correctly when I tested it.

I really love the new implementation of HALO and ParanoidAndroid Team has done a terrific job of bringing it to another whole new level.

If you need to get the latest Android 4.2.2 AOSP ROM with HALO floating notifications, definitely your best bet is ParanoidAndroid ROM right now.

So, if this is something you want to try out, give it a go this week(end) and do let me know how it goes!

You can read up on full ParanoidAndroid settings here or watch video tutorial below:

P.S. Oh, I was in a hurry and also there are many new features added to the camera, you will need to flash the ParanoidAndroid gapps though!

    For this ROM can you set the settings so that you get the normal settings? not the split version

  2. Daniel says:

    Can you make a video how to back up and restore apn settings? Im having problems with my 3g when I use this rom

    • Max Lee says:

      APN settings should pick up automatically, you can use an app like APN Manager PRO but it’s not necessary.

  4. Bilal says:

    Why cant i download ?????? its going again and again to same page

  5. hin says:

    Does it work for N7105 international? and suitable for daily use??

  6. Michael Merten says:

    tilaksidduram, a seniour member from XDA just told me that this rom is ONLY for N7100, have you really tested it on N7105? I do not want to lose 4g connectivity after flashing this rom. Does it really work on N7105? Hoping for an answer. Thanks.

  7. Mark Conroy says:

    Does this ROM support use of a 64GB micro SD card. Many ROMs do not, and with the poor 3G service in my area I need the space to download things for viewing to avoid interminable stutter and pauses while viewing.

    • James Kephart says:

      I would also like to know the answer to this question. I’ve heard the deciding factor is the kernel that determines it’s reading ability…

      • Michael Merten says:

        Only the Touch Wiz kernel will support 64gig, you’ll just have to format or get a 32 gig card.

    • loki says:

      No clue what these others are talking about,
      My 64GB card works flawlessly on this ROM.

  8. KJ says:

    Max will you make a video showing the color feature of this rom? I am curious about that.

  9. Steve says:

    Hey Max,

    I’m having problems with my phone app, every time I call someone it gives me message ” Unfortunately, the process has stopped.” is there any way to fix this?

    • Max Lee says:

      which Note 2 do you have?

      • Steve says:

        The sprint version.

      • jonny says:

        Same here for sprint. Calling and receiving a call. Still able to talk as long you don’t dismiss the message. But rather annoying if you want to multitask while talking on the phone.

        • Steve says:

          yeah this is what happening to mine. there was a temporary fix for this but it stopped working for me. something to do with when you flash it, it made the call signal to global instead of lte/cdma. try to go to a TW rom and changed it back and reflash PA rom. maybe it might work for you.

  10. the camera doesn’t work on the sprint version . how do you get it to function?

  11. Kian says:

  21. Michael Merten says:

    I took the risk on this and installed it on my N7105, it worked super smooth and everything worked. BUT, I only had about 14 hours battery life which is not good. So I’m back on my favorite rom. Clean Rom ACE, available for all carriers. The best touch wiz rom for N7105. The only rom not listed here. Here’s the link
    [ROM][5/7] CleanROM ACE 4.9I ★| When You Expect the Finest! | DMC3 Base |★

  22. Dario says:

  23. ian says:

    Amazing rom but the new PACMAN ROM just added HALO))) do a review of that one

  24. xxBrun0xx says:

    Tons of customization, smooth, stable, and halo is cool.

    BUT battery life blows. 2.5 hours screen = don’t leave your house with this on your phone.

  25. Anderson J Wang says:

  26. Joe says:

  27. Anderson J Wang says:

  28. itchy fingaz says:

    hey max, just a quick question. I have an att note 2, currently running jedi x 13, switching to 14. but i’m interested in a 4.2.2 rom. I’ve tried slimbean and liquid smooth, loved both but had some signal strength problems (dropped calls, dropping from 4g to 3g, and all around signal issues). just wondering what u think is the absolute best 4.2.2 rom for att note 2 ?

  29. Hardus says:

    I have an South African N7100, this rom is not working nicely on it, I downloaded the, for example when it starts up “eClock” crashes and if I connect it to my pc to copy files to it, the transfer gets stuck at 16k and times out. I see theres talk of a v3.57? maybe it will work better, I cant find the download link.

  30. Radom says:

    SHIT!!!! The Smart Dock is not WORKING with this ROM!!!FAIL!!!!

  31. Aris Almario says:

    Thank you for many of your meaningful videos. I enjoy alot in experimenting with my Note 2. But for this ROM, at some point, my battery wouldn’t charge. I don’t know if its because of the ROM or something that I installed like a battery saver app. The only battery app i remember was the Go Battery App. Then from there it wouldn’t charge as it would normally do. If you have any answer for this I hope you could reply to this comment. Thanks again.

  32. Parsa Gachkar says:

    is it stable enough for daily usage!‌ i’m using the alliance Rom it’s really stable but i realy want halo notifications and a 4.2.2 android

    • Payton Manning says:

      Hell no it stucks. This is literally the wrist ROM for note 2
      I use this ROM on the gnex. Which works flawlessly. Is Not the same

  33. Bhavit says:

    I hate to say this, but battery life really sucks in this rom, and my note 2 doesn’t even properly charges, after plugging it for charging for 2 hours, it just gets charged barely 5%, please max? Can you tell me how to fix this?

    • Cthm says:

      I had the same problem. Bought another charger from flea market, and it is charging quickly now. For some reason the one from AT&T is not good at all.

  34. is there still bugs in the sprint version?

  35. Angel V. says:

    So the rom works really well so far only issue Im seeing is the signal only wants to work on WCDMA; when i put it for lte/gsm/wcdma or lte/wcdma it doesnt caught any signal. Any suggestions?

  36. SanderLiukk says:


    This ROM is not recognizing my Earphones nor anything else when plugged into headphone jack. Everything else works flawlessly. Do I need to flash some drivers or something? Pls help me out on this one! Much appreciated 🙂

    In other words there is no icon anywhere of the system recognizing plugged in audio-out cables nor any sound comes through when playin. music for eexample 🙁

    • Max Lee says:

      Hmm that’s weird, is anyone else having this issue? Mine works fine…

      • SanderLiukk says:

        Really weird. Maybe. I should backup this ROM and do a clean install, wiping all data with cache? Totally not the most pleasant thing to do.

        Or is there any possibility to install any nightlies on this one. (Updating through ROM Manager or something like that.

        This issue is really getting on my otherwise very healthy relationship with this ROM ;(
        Hope there is easy way out of this problem. Nobody even yet answered me on Xda about this problem.

        Waiting calmly 🙂

      • SanderLiukk says:


        Oh man I suddenly got it working somehow now. Don’t know how tho’.
        System still not showing that it’s recognizing that something is plugged in, but audio
        comes through. Music quality is nice.

        Thanks for you being here and I hope I won’t be wasting your precious time anymore 😉
        See you around!
