    No worries DroidXcon your all good. As for removing bloatware, it can be scary and I agree with DroidXcon if you are not comfortable don't do it, and some users go overboard and remove way too much and cause issues. For me I will remove the basic stuff and back them up offline storage. As for custom ROM's this time around (if/when we get the bootloader unlocked) I am not sure I would go that route, I have to agree it would defeat the purpose of having this awesome S-Pen device without the S-Pen features, but that's me.

    I feel that a good touchwiz based rom will do wonders. but as is the phone is great

    Well if Scott works up a CleanROM for the Note 2, I'll probably run that. He does a good job of kicking out the bloat and adding back some nice functions. I'm thinking a nice mashup of the Note 2 ROMs from all carriers would work pretty well. Or one where all apps would work in Multi-view.

    I have to assume the dev is actually referring to putting a custom ROM on it.
    Is the stock really being seen as so perfect that the device wouldn't benefit from a custom ROM? Surprising to hear that from a dev, but pretty cool if true.

    Believe it or not yes. Not many people want to give up the S-pen features and TW actually works well on this phone.

    I wouldn't mind a custom ROM if it brings features such as reassigning the buttons (I miss holding the back button to kill the current app).
    I would also like to have the clock in the center of the notification bar, and nice color themes.

    Losing features of the s-pen is what concerns many people about a custom ROM.

    Those things can be added without touchwiz so that shouldn't be a problem

    Has it been done in the past with the Note 1? Were there any AOSP ROM's that had fully functioning S Pen support?

    I wasn't around the Samsung mod scenes back around that time, got into it slightly with the GNex and just again now with the Note 2. If they were able to do it with the Note 1 + AOSP maybe there's some hope for the Note 2.

    Don't know as I never had a note 1. But you can't compare it was not as popular of a phone and I doubt devs were running out to get it. ....ill poke around later see what I find

    A customized stock type ROM would be great, adding in a few things here and there would be cool. Regarding that I posted a thread today letting folks know the source code for the SGH-I605(JB) has been released. So hopefully it is something devs can work with.

    As soon as its available ill write one up. I have done tons of these for the fascinate and droid charge.

    Odin is Samsung software that will overwrite a partion on your phone and add whatever coding you provide.

    I've never rooted a phone and am very afraid of screwing something up. The only thing I want to accomplish is to find a way to enter APN information so that I can use a foreign local sim cards to receive data as well as voice when travelling in another country instead of using Verizon global roaming. The stock phone does not allow you to enter any new APN information, preventing this. I'd LOVE to be able to accomplish this without rooting but fear that may not be possible. If you know for certain that there is a way to do this and could explain it for a noob I'd really appreciate the help.

    I have a pretty thorough guide written up. And a custom rom is already made by beanstown over at the xda forums. I will be including direct download link and instructions to install it. It will install same as root but with one extra step of wiping phone data. Hopefully will have it up before midnight. I still need to write iup FAQ and trouble shooting section then I can post it. I'm at work trying to write it every time my boss is not looking so it may take awhile lol.

    +1 for that! I was using a CleanROM on my S3 and loved it! I hope he cooks something up for the Note 2. Until then, I'm just gonna wait.

    Beanstown ROM is looking very nice, can't d/l this weekend due to my limited bandwidth in the country. I will try to hit up a wifi hot spot tomorrow but may just roll along and wait for Build 2, not in a big hurry anyways. Imnuts is looking to get one going as well and hopefully DroidXcon will too
