    Don't get me wrong GN2 is the best device available...Stock is great but running custom rom takes it to much higher level as you have found.

    Did you get the reply I tried to send you? I'm not sure it went through, so here it is. If anyone wishes to correct me, please do, as I'm no expert by far:

    Honestly because I did sort of a mix method that was ridiculously easy I can tell you, but no responsibilities in me Ok?

    Ok the first thing is to download the apk from xda that allows root by exploiting the vulnerability with the exynos processor. It's called Exynos Exploit 1.0. You then have to go into developer options and select "allow install from unknown sources"..

    Then, when you run it, look for the super user widget within your application widgets. Grant access and you then have root.

    Go to the play store and download Goomanager. Be sure to watch the description video to the end and fully understand the process.

    Once you have installed goo, follow the video instructions to install twrp from the menu. Then grant it super user.

    The next thing is to download Cleanrom 3.3 from scottsroms. Com or from xda. Save it to your sd card.

    Once you have downloaded that, boot into twrp and create a backup. Don't forget this step! If anything goes wrong, you won't have a build to go back to.

    Then, once you have the backup, boot back into twrp and select install. It should show your sd card. Navigate to the cleanerom zip file and make sure you select to cache delete and factory wipe.

    Let it run, select the options you want. I selected the stock kernel and the applications I wanted to be installed. Then, when you reboot, don't be surprised if it takes a while to come up. Just let it sit until it does. You will see a black screen with the nexus "x"in the middle of it. Then you know your good! It should go into your security screen, and just proceed as normal.

    Play with it for a second to make sure your functionality is there, then go back into goo, boot to twrp, create another backup under a different name that you will remember. Then simply restart the phone and play with the new functions!

    In this forum, there is a thread and video about the features of Android 4.1.2 on the note 2. I actually subscribed to the guy because he gives tons of tipson the note 2.

    But that's it. It took me longer to write this, than it will for you to complete the whole process. Just make sure you have a fully, or almost fully charged battery and you should be good.

    I know what you mean, I don't use it as much as I used to, but there are times when it still comes in handy for watching shows that may not be available by other means.

    I would be terrified to even try rooting my phone. I'm not even sure I understand rooting. But I sure would love the multi-tasking option.What I love is I check for updates every day and it says, don't check back in less than 24 hours. Apparently, they are tired of folks checking and checking for updates.

    Root your device , Install TWRP & install bloat free custom rom with multiview.
    From there install Perseus Kernel & enjoy incredible battery life / performance.

    The path to true Android freedom & happiness:
    1st Root -
    2nd TWRP-
    3rd Custom Rom recommendation -
    4th Perseus Kernel-

    ENJOY!!!!!

    I am a basically ignorant phone user. Love note 2, want multi-tasking, hate bloatware, but have never rooted and I'm pretty sure I'm too scared to try. But if I should decide to try (doubtful but just in case) can you back up with dropbox or do you have to have an app specifically designed for that purpose and if so, how do I find such an app?

    Quote Originally Posted by cmatthews View Post

    The 2 best options for backing up when rooted are:
    Titanium Backup from PlayStore, it allows you to backup Alps and data associated the them. Such as progress in a game, it settings for the app.

    For a complete backup if system settings and ROM, Nandroid backup from within the new recovery you have flashed. Whether it is Clockwork Mod or TWRP, they both do a great jib of making a restore point for whatever ROM you are running.

    Lynn: actually is really easy. I was honestly afraid to with this phone also, but att left me no choice. Following slingbox'instructions made it extremely easy and confidence boosting! As long as you back up at every step and before you do something, you should be okay with his method. Besides that, he's good and helped me through a couple things I did incorrect.

    They payoff is great without much risk involved as long as you follow the instructions on it.

    Man I'm sooo tempted to do this but its my very first Android (non iPhone) phone and just wish updating the OS is as easy iOS. LOL..hahah
    I'm really scared of just having a two week old brick phone because I wasn't patience to wait for the update from the carrier. That's what kind of bothering me with Android OS they leave it up the the manufacturer or carries to roll out the updates and what features they want on their phones. This is coming from a simple ex-iOS user that wish simplicity on Android.

    So does rooting it in this way remove the TouchWiz overlay that Samsung has? Also, how are updates done going forward?

    You would have to Flash this using Odin -
    After OTA update you will have to root again so its best to just wait for Updated rom flashable through recovery.
    Thats usually available within 24 hours of update release

    I am wondering if there is a time limit on if and when At&t has to provide this feature before a class action can be filed. I have been monitoring the At&t multiview thread across multiple forums, and I am noticing that with T-mobile getting the update today, At&t's strategy of waiting out the consumer seems to be working, as activity about this subject seems to be dying down and many are resorting to voiding their warranties and rooting their Note 2's. This is a win-win for At&t. People just give up and accepted that At&t basically robbed us, and if you brick your phone rooting At&t does not have to replace it. By mid January, everyone will accept they were duped and simply move on. Very sad and disappointing.

    Yea, I just got tired of waiting for AT&T to release the update, therefore, rooting and installing a custom ROM was the only option left. That being said, the multiwindow function kicks ***..

    I have moved to the GN2 from my old iPhone 4, and I LOVE IT.

    If I were to room and install a custom ROM, do I have to reinstall and set up all the apps I currently have on my stock phone?
    What sort of benefits (aside from multi-view) does rooting and putting a custom ROM on have?

    Hi, I have 2 quick questions: When everyone says backup to SD, put on SD, install on SD card, etc, do you actually need an SD card or could you just use the storage space already on the note 2?

    Second one is, when you are removing everything from your phone, does that remove the contacts / texts / etc? Does the backup save those? Thanks

    Oh i'm sorry, one more question: CleanROM. I hear t-mobile / Verizon have much better custom roms and I recently read there's a guide for putting them on AT&T phones. Does anyone think it's wise to wait for them? How hard is it switching ROMs?

    1)Yes you can use internal storage for backups etc but that takes away from device memory so its best to do majority backup on SD card.
    After you root , Get TWRP installed make your first backup to device then backup to SD card that way original Rom image is saved in both place.
    From there save all backups to SD card.

    2)Yes backup saves rom image & everything on it.
    Before flashing custom rom you will need to make separate backup of contacts , apps etc so you can transfer them over.
    A great app I use to do that-


    Safety tip:
    Every so often backup SD card to PC so if SD gets corrupted you can reformat and transfer saved data to it

    huh your hearing wrong lol
    ATT has more international rom ports available then both carriers combined & Quality of roms is = if not better
    Flashing rom is easy takes about 2 min.

    When you say backup to device and then SD, do you mean actually backing up twice using TWRP or do you mean transferring the backup from device to SD card? I don't mind it actually taking up space since I don't have much on my phone. I ask this because I don't have an SD card right now and I would like to root / flash CleanROM before buying one.

    And thank you for the quick reply
