Honestly, I simply haven’t found a single ICS ROM for my AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717 that I would want to use as a daily driver. My criteria for a daily driver ICS ROM would include the use of the S-Pen and overclocking. I feel that without overclocking the SGH-i717 isn’t usable and you will notice a ton of lag, especially when using the S-Pen. (The GT-N7000 runs without lag though without overclocking, much better processor.)
Anyways, I still think Saurom ROM is the best ROM right now so here’s an updated Saurom ROM RC7.1. I will keep trying more ICS throughout the week but at the moment, I am always running back to this ROM and I love how smooth it runs at 1.8-1.9Ghz overclocked.
Download Saurom ROM RC7
To install, wipe, install Saurom ROM RC7, isntall Saurom ROM RC7.1, then reboot!
For T-mobile users, you can try the Blaze Modem: (Flash in CWM)
(This is actually Blaze modem even though install says Telus, ignore that.)
