So, you want to get better battery life? Or maybe get rid of bloatware?

Maybe you just want to try different ROMs.

Whatever the case, installing new ROM on your newly rooted Galaxy Note can equal a lot of fun as it’s like transforming your Galaxy Note into a new phone every time you install a new ROM. (or at least that’s how I feel.)

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ BELOW SENTENCE AND DO NOT USE THIS GUIDE ANYMORE!

By using ClockworkMod Recovery, we can install a new ROM on your rooted Galaxy Note.

Before we begin, make sure you’ve rooted your Galaxy Note, installed ClockworkMod Recovery, made at least one backup of your rooted stock ROM, and used Titanium Backup app to backup all your apps.

Step 1. First, let’s get into ClockworkMod Recovery by holding down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power button together.

Step 2. When you see the Samsung Galaxy Note splash screen like below photo, let go of the Power button.

Step 3. Once in ClockworkMod Recovery, choose “wipe date/factory reset”.

*Note – You can use Volume buttons to select and Power button to choose in ClockworkMod Recovery.

Step 4. Choose “Yes”.  This will erase all your personal settings and apps so make sure you’ve made a backup of your ROM and apps before preceding.

Step 5. Choose “install zip from sdcard”.

Step 6. Choose “choose zip from sdcard” or “Choose zip from internal sdcard” depending on where you copied/downloaded your ROM zip file to.

Step 7. You can browse your SD card or internal storage and choose the ROM zip file you are trying to install.  In this example, I am installing Rocket ROM, who’s ROM zip file name is “ROCKET-v13-KL7-eybee1970.zip”.

Step 8. Choose “Yes”.

Step 9. Once ROM installation is complete, you can reboot.  Optionally, if there’s additional files such as kernel or GoogleApps zip files, you can use “install from sdcard” option to install.

Step 10. If your rooted Galaxy Note reboots into the new ROM, congratulations.  If you end up in a boot loop for some reason (can happen to some ROMs), restore back to your backed up ROM OR try installing another ROM.

    Hi, rooted phone with your guide, and installed CWM and everything seems to be working fine.. EXCEPT:
    With every ROM i try, touch stops working. Restoring from backup makes it work again, so I dont know what Im missing here.. Are there any other zip files I need other than the ROM-zip itself

  3. JuninhoCelular says:

    Oh Man.. It took maybe 3 or 4 times to get recovery. I was almost petrify about it. But I did it. I have installed Romow and I find some issues with my language (portuguese)(and mybackup pro wasn´t recovering in this ICS 4), so I decided to come back to my stock rom. It takes this all times.. giving up.. turning off.. and restarting.. to take my rom back.. and it cames perfectly intact (thank god)..heheh… So, people.. don´t give up your restore.. It will work sometime…hahahah… Just kidding.. Just speaking my experience… thank god it worked!!!… btw.. what´s the better rom, with not soooome CHANGES…but with good increases in stock rom???… regards!!!

    Hey Max! I have problem with cwm. I put my rom files on my sd card and first few times I switched roms cwm detect my sd card. But now when I try to change roms thru cwm it only seeing my internal memory not my sd card. Is it something I did?

    • Max says:

      Make sure you flash Abyss kernel before when installing a new ROM, that will fix the issue and also prevent you from bricking your phone.
