For those of you with a Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-i605, you might be hugely disappointed that Verizon (has again) locked bootloader.  Which means currently we cannot install custom recovery like CWM Recovery or install custom kernels.


In time, I am sure we will have unlocked bootloaders but we can still install custom ROMs using ODIN/Heimdall.

One of the first custom ROMs available right now using the ODIN method is the Jelly Beans ROM.  This ROM comes with cool enhancements to your Verizon Note 2 like 15-toggles, all apps enabled multi-view, circle battery mod, and some more.

So, if you have a Verizon Note 2, try this ROM out and let me know what you think!

For installation, follow the Note 2 unrooting method but flash the file below (unzip and you will get a file ending in tar.md5) instead of a stock firmware.

    Max- I’ve followed your root methods on all my prior devices and I just want to say thanks! I do have one question, As I am ready to root my verizon note 2, to install this rom using the unroot method, do I need to first root it via odin or can i knock this out in one go using this method?

    • James says:

      Nevermind, for those of you who want to root and get a custom ROM this method will give you root and your ROM all at once.

    FYI, all. Build# 3 of this ROM is already out (12/17/12). Jump to XDA for it. I love this site, but it’s really outdated.

    I am trying to use my Note 2 as USB media transfer. However, my phone does not recognize the usb cable, instead it only is charging my phone. Is this due to the ROM? Does anyone else notice this?

    • Banditware says:

      I have tested mine here and see what you mean. I was however able to get it to work.

      I unplugged my USB cable from the phone and back in again. It will connect as a “Connected as an Installer”. Go to the settings and select PTP (Camera) if you get the error, device is missing the hardware id, select MTP (Media device). If you get the same message again go back to PTP (Camera). I had to do this a few times and then it finally worked. I’m not sure if this is a bug with the JellyBeans mod or not.

    It seems there is an issue with this ROM and the S Pen, I have discovered.
    If I want to capture part of a pic or article with the pen while holding down the button and making a circle around it, it should bring up an option if you would like to share/message/email it ect… It seems this is NOT working with this ROM. Has anyone else seen this? I would hate to go back to stock just because of this unless someone knows something I don’t. THANKS!

    • mcgeeb says:

      To do this I just verified you need to be on the Touchwiz launcher. I don’t think it has anything to do with the ROM.

      • banditware says:

        Thanks mcgeeb!
        what version of jellybeans are you on by chance?

        • mcgeeb says:

          There’s another version? My Build Number says Jelly Bean’s Build 1. I’m fairly new to rooting, so that’s about all I know. I rooted because I was sick of Verizon taking away some great apps that were on the phone, especially the number of apps in mufti-view.

  11. Matt says:

    I don’t think the email notification is working on this ROM either … ?!?

  12. Cyrus says:

    I downloaded the file to the phone and every thing works great, but there is a bar across the top. It that supposed to be there?

  13. Travis says:

    The bar across the top is your battery life. It can be disabled or customized
