    To this topic... I have a quick quesiton or should I say, YOUR recommendation...

    1. I have a rooted OG GNex, Backed up with TiBu
    2. I'm waiting on my GNote 2 (ETA tomorrow) to come in..
    3. My intention is to throw a 32Gb SD card in it, Root & Install Beans 11
    4. My question is...Given the new platfrom, should I just REINSTALL all my apps and not worry about the content & settings, or do a RESTORE of the Apps from TiBu..?

    Thoughts...? and thanks for your input...
    Do "missing apps +data". If it crashes you can simply boot into recovery and Wipe data and then restore apps individually.

    Also remember if you are using Verizon note 2 you need to unlock bootloader

    DrodX... Thank you for the reply....

    I think the save bet might be for me to just take screenshots of my "settings" and reinstall the apps from scratch.

    Yes, thank you for the reminder about the bootloader unlock as well... I have done this in the past with my GNex. I'm sure there's new revised unlock bootloader apps for the NOTE2. I'll have to do a search on that a bit later... unless you guys have a direct URL for the Verizon Note2 handy...?

    Thanks again... Rick

    Thank you... Thank you...!!

    Now I just have to make a decision on what kernel... Not really interested in overclocking, just the battery life..

    BeansROM uses Aroma installer, which lets you choose different options to install, including kernels. Stock Kernel on BeansROM has been good for me, but give the others a try and see what works best for you.

    Okay.. Just got the phone in and it has a baseband version of I605VRALL4 ... The link that you provide me has the firmware at VRALJB. Do I have to download or backdate the ROM first...?

    Thoughts...

    Nope, you should be fine. The BeansROM is based on I605VRALL4.

    Any reason why GTalk doesn't work with new build? Also I thought Google Wallet worked as well. Which it doesn't.

    Sorry for the delay getting back to you guys...

    Okay, here is the update.. and I just want clarification to be sure I'm okay. It turned out that I needed to pull the battery and start over, in which case, everything went fine and I was able to Root the unit and install JellyBeans 11 with my kernel peanutbutta... I rebooted and all seems well... however, when I goto the Phone\about I'm seeing this...

    Baseband Version: I605VRALL4
    Jelly Beans Rom Build 11 @BeansTown106
    Kernel Version: 3.0.31 00082 -g2cc54f1-dirty imnuts@infinity #1

    Is it okay to have the Baseband version..? I see others with the VRALJB. And also, Is that the correct kernel...

    Thanks for any help... Rick

    Baseband you see listed is ok.

    peanutbutta jelly kernel is built/maintained by imnuts at xda, so that is correct as well.

    you should be good to go, glad you got it worked out.

    Never worry about asking questions. Its better than coming and asking for help because your device is bricked.
