    Just wondering if anyone has been brave enough to put jb on their note yet? I saw a video of it on pocket now, wasn't as smooth as jb on the gs3 but was still smoother than ics. would love to hear how it functions as a daily driver.

    Well I decided to bite the bullet today and just do it. Rooted my phone and then installed the latest CM10 nightly build and I am pretty pleased with it so far. It's definitely faster than the ICS/TW build. However I can't say that it's as fast as the JB previews I've seen on the GS3. The CM team just got started on it though so I'm sure it'll get even faster in the future.

    I did get one random reboot so far which is pretty consistent with what other guys have experienced also. I'm sure that will go away in future builds. Also there is an annoying screen flicker that occurs periodically but you can fix that by going into Settings-->Developer Options-->Disable HW Overlay. Make sure that option is checked and that fixes the screen flicker. And be aware that you'll have to re-check it after every reboot.

    Thank God for Titanium Backup also - backed everything up before flashing CM10 and restored all the apps and their related settings and data afterwards. Also ROM Manager makes it really easy to flash ROMs.

    Also big props to the website RootGalaxyNote.com - he has a video that walks you through rooting your phone and you don't lose any data in the process. Only took about 7 to 8 minutes for the whole process. Easy and pain free. Just remember to download Titanium Backup once you are rooted and do a backup before flashing any ROMS.

    Feels f'ing great to be able to install Jelly Bean without having to wait on the carriers!

    UPDATE: It's been 24 hours now since I flashed the Jelly Bean CM10 and let me just say - IT F'ING ROCKS!! Much faster and snappier than ICS. No regrets at all!

    do you still have to install the kernel each time? I was doing the Paranoid rom and after a certain date you only had to flash the rom and gapps.

    I ended up going back to ICS for now due to some things not working and random reboots...last I tried was the 8/20 rom though.

    I have been using rom manager which goes out and gets the latest version. It does prompt me if I want to install the gapps afterwards but I am not sure if it does the kernel each time. I'm just blindly trusting rom manager.

    I have some minor issues with Paranoid, so I will probably give this a try. So ROM Manager takes care of downloading and installing the latest CM10? (I don't need to download ROM zip and download to phone, then reboot into recovery, etc.?)

    Yup, its pretty cool and easy. It will filter out only the zips eligible for your phone, you select which one you want, it then downloads the zip and then prompt you to begin the install and takes over from there.

    UPDATE: Things to consider before updating...remember this is not a stable build. When I first boot up I always get force close errors saying "com.process.email has stopped working". Same message displays for exchange services. However this only happens right after reboot. After checking the Disable HW Overlay option these msgs go away and email works fine.

    Also you will get the occasional random reboot. I've averaged about 2 a day since installing CM 10.

    And also be aware that you lose your S-Pen functionality so if you use that a lot you may not want to flash CM 10.
  11. Sorry if this is a noob question, but does the CM10 come with a working version of Google Now (siri competitor)? I know it's just the standard search on JB, but I am new to rooting/ROMS/etc so I wasn't sure.

    I rooted my GNote for the 1st time yesterday, but haven't flashed any custom roms yet. I am trying to decide between getting the Google Now apk for ICS or flashing CM10. Any advice/direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, Google Now works just fine. I am on the Aug 28th ROM of CM10 Paranoid etc...reboots and other small annoyances may have me going to AOKP JB in a few days....if I do, I'll post up better/worse

    I did it! It was really easy flashing the nightly in ROM Manager. Can't believe i've been flashing ROMs the old fashioned way before!

    So far, i'm liking it more than Paranoid. What I hated about Paranoid (for me) was that the gMail app would keep crashing when viewing an email. And often the sound would turn off, requiring a reboot to get back.

    With the CM10 nighly, I haven't had any random reboots or error messages. Only issue is some occasional screen flickering, but they're few and far between.

    Also, as will all JB ROMs, the s-Memo and s-Note apps are not included. BUT I discovered today an app called gNote, available on the XDA forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1833913 Apparently based off of the actual note app code. :)
  14. Thanks for the answer about Google Now!

    I'm getting ready to flash the nightly, which will be my first ever custom rom. I'm very excited! Before I do though, I have a question about something I read last night. I can't seem to find the post (not even sure what site I was on), but I read that the first "stable" JB ROM was released yesterday? Does this mean the S-Pen worked on it? Or does that just mean there aren't many reboots or glitches?

    Thanks again! Any other advice would be welcomed. I'm trying to make sure I back up my stock rom and apps, but I don't have much experience there either. So far, I've done a full backup with "Rom Manager", as well as Apps+Data, Photos, Music & SMS with "My Backup Root". I've also used Titanium Backup for my apps, just to make sure I didn't mess it up. Does that sound like I did everything right (assuming I did each step correctly) to ensure that if I need to flash my stock ICS rom back onto my Note, i'll be able to with ease?

    so JB doesn't support flash? How do you view sites that host flash videos?

    hasn't been too much of an issue for me since I use Pulse for the majority of my browsing and they must be using HTML 5 cause videos play fine in there. I have run into one web site so far where flash was being used and couldn't view the video. Small sacrifice for me personally.

    UPDATE: Still liking JB so far, there are definitely some issues though. I just choose to deal with them cause JB is noticeably faster than ICS so for me its worth it.

    --Average about 2 random reboots a day

    --I can send and receive email just fine but it doesn't sync properly. For example, if I read an email on my phone it won't show as read when I bring up email on my PC. Not a biggie but small annoyance.

    --Also my alarm clock doesn't seem to work
    --When I pull down the status bar to display notifications sometimes the wallpaper will display as the background for one notification while the background will be black for all other notifications.

    --Only 3 of my 5 lock screen shortcuts will display
    --Pandora won't stream but other streaming apps like TuneIn Radio work fine

    About Flash, I hear you can still enable it by sideloading Adobe Flash, and then use a browser that supports flash, like Dolphin.

    My issues with the nightly:

    - random reboots

    - screen flicker (but it goes away when you go to Settings -> Developer Options -> And check off "Disable HW Overlays")

    - Battery in general seems good but for some reason over night it went from 70% at 1:30am to 3% at 9am (and it then shut down). Battery stats say 70% of my usage was "phone", but i only talked on the phone for 2 minutes in the past 24 hrs. Not sure if this was just a fluke, so I will be keeping an eye on it.

    Hey, folks, I moved this thread into the "all things root" section of this forum for further discussion, since this application involves rooting your Note.:)

    stability is everything for me when trying out different roms
    I must say that I absolutely love JB, it just seems so much nicer than ICS
    But I have yet to find the perfect JB rom...
    Random boots and any other issues are just not good for me.
    I've tried many, PA/Liquid/Nightly etc they are geniuses in my book.
    I can say that PA has probably the best that I have used, but random boots with this rom also.
    I have decided to head back to ICS and slap a JB interface until the (or if and when) official JB comes out for the Note.

    Yeah I had to switch back to cm9 also. Phone rebooted on me during a couple crucial points in time and that was enough to convince me to go back. CM9 is better than TouchWiz but can't wait for a stable version of CM10 to come out.

    I'm back to ICS now and will stay there until CM10 is completely stable.

    A couple days ago i soft "bricked" the phone with the nightly! Here's what happened: I went to update to the latest nightly (through ROM Manager). When the phone rebooted, i got the boot up animation of CM9! WTF, it should be CM10! I guess it's possible I clicked the wrong thing in ROM Manager, but I will never know now.

    Anyway, the boot animation would not go away. I'd reboot again only to get the same animation. Stupid me didn't have a CWM backup of previous rom, not sure why. So restoring through recovery was not an option.

    I went through steps to install a downloaded "stock" Android Gingerbread, using Odin. But that didn't work at first. After trying over and over, finally that worked, and I got to stock GB.

    From there, i rooted, and installed the ICS Rom (one based off of official one from AT&T). I think i'm staying with ICS since it's working well, and is very stable. Plus I get full s Pen support which I missed in CM10.

    What I liked the most with CM10 was "Google Now", but I found you can install Google Now on a rooted ICS. Did that, and it works great. Also, I find this ICS is just as smooth as CM10. The developer of the ICS apparently made tweaks to make it smoother than stock ICS. So i'm now getting the stability of ICS with my favorite feature of JB. :)

    I just upgraded to cm10 and it is very stable! If you've been waiting for a stable build this is it. I tried the snapshot update first and it failed during installation. Then tried the most current nightly and it installed perfectly. Loving JB so far. Project butter is very evident!

    Fred, is it "still" as totally stable after using it for a while? Do you get random reboots at all?
  25. Fred G. Vader

    Fred G. Vader Well-Known Member

    I've probably gotten about 4 to 5 random reboots with this install. With the old build I was getting 2 to 3 reboots a day so it's much improved.
