Android 4.2.2 was just pushed out for many Nexus devices couple days back and Note 10.1 users can also get it too by installing the latest AOKP ROM, available for all Note 10.1 variants including GT-N8000, GT-N8013, and GT-N8010.

With latest Android 4.2.2 you can expect much more stability and faster performance from your already-darn-fast tablet. Of course, you will lose any Samsung built-in features like multi-window, Smart Stay, and stuff like that so this isn’t for those of you who need that on a daily basis. (You can get S-Pen Note features though by using these alternatives.)

This is actually my daily driver now and here’s couple things I like:

First, the battery lasts longer on the AOKP ROM and also you can re-charge your tablet using your computer USB or any low-output USB charger works too.

Second, it’s fast, no bloatware and no extra, fancy features. The ROM itself is less than 150MB compared to >600MB for most TouchWiz-based ROMs. You can get the “pure” Android 4.2.2 experience on this ROM.

Third, the ROM is bug-free, at least so far I have not seen any bugs plus my USB OTG works so I can keep using my DSLR Controller app which requires it.

Fourth, it’s like having a pure Nexus device plus the AOKP ROM Control Settings allow me to fully customize my navigation buttons with my favorite shortcuts, enable nifty features on the device, and a ton more.

Well, the list goes on and you get what I mean. If you feel like tinkering and turning your Note 10.1 into a full Nexus device, try out this AOKP ROM and let me know how it goes for you.

    Thanks dude, even though i’m not gonna install it (because it doesn’t have smart stay and etc). Do you have the full function version of these?

  2. PC says:

    How does this compare to the Baked ROM? Is there multiuser?

  3. dale ismail says:

    Can We gelete all those directories and files located at Dir 0, emulated and legacy?

    • Max says:

      What I usually do is copy everything in folder 0 to root folder of my sdcard. Then delete the 0 folder. Just make sure you are not deleting files you want to keep.

      • dale ismail says:

        Noted. Thanks.
        I think I’ve seen a downloadable s-note somewhere before.
        Any chance for the smart stay to be incorporated back into this ROM?

  4. dale ismail says:

    Typo gelete=delete

  5. dale ismail says:

    I have just discovered that this ROM is not supported by Flash Player

  6. dale ismail says:

    And also your S Pen function. Am going back to stock. The difference between Tab 10 and Note 10 is the pen. Ta.

  7. Yeltsin Lima says:

    Can you teach us how to install Ubuntu Touch in a Galaxy Note? Thks.

  8. Saint says:

    I have a serious bug with the camera…. i take a photo done… but the screen freezes with the picture taken… and there is no more live view on the screen

  9. Rad Mir says:

    This is a very good ROM! I like kill app button and long-pressed killer, but I had some problems with ROM. Most annoying is no-mobile-internet on N8000 model. May be I’m wrong, but even when I went to provider’s service they couldn’t set my tablet right. So I am going to try another ROM (Revolt JB). Thank you, Max for all you’ve done!:)
