Gnabo ROM for Galaxy Note 10.1! [Quad Multi-Window/Air Command]

Click on Play button above or Click Here to Download High-Quality HD video to your Smartphone or Computer.


For this week’s Galaxy Note 10.1 ROM of the Week, check out Gnabo ROM!

Based on latest Android 4.4.2, Gnabo ROM is available for GT-N8000, GT-N8010, and GT-N8013 models.

With Gnabo ROM, you will be able to enjoy some of the latest Samsung features along with tweaks like quad multi-window and Air Command, along with floating S-Pen windows.

You will also find Tab 4 launcher along with Tab 4 browser.  The Tab 4 browser is pretty cool as you can 4 different instances at the same time, allowing you to open the same browser when you are multi-tasking using multi-window.  This really hits the spot for me as before I would use the default browser, Dolphin, and Chrome browsers to have them multi-tasking at the same time.

Other nifty features include S5 lockscreen effects, S-Pen power saving mode, and some more.

Overall, Gnabo ROM is a really fun ROM and going to let you enjoy the latest Samsung features without buying the latest tablets.  So, give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

  2. Derrick says:

    I love this ROM. The only problem is, my WiFi doesn’t work. I tried the WiFi fix for the n8010 but it still doesn’t work. Any ideas??

  3. Amr says:

    Hey MAX finally i’m using Gnabo ROM the interface is awesome ” like it so much man” keep up the good work 🙂
    however i’m having a challenge currently with recovery-clockwork-touch-
    this version is not able at all to see the SDcard or USB to backup to external SDcard or Usb. or even if i would like to install from them later on.
    I copied the ROM in to the internal phone to install it and i was doubting that it will work. There is any work around i should do… this is the last request.
    many thanks

  4. Anthony says:

    Hi Max
    I just upgraded to the Gnabo Rom and LOVE it. its freaky fast . I did everthing in order
    and worked perfect . thanks so much. I did notice that my 10.1 is no longer rooted. can I root
    the same way as before?

    thanks for your help

      • anthony says:

        I installed the update super suv2.00 and so far , so far. tablet is still same. maybe i should reinstall cwm recovery and supersu zip file?

        • Max says:

          You don’t see SuperSU app after installing the zip file?

          • anthony says:

            i flashed the su zip file twice and the app never appeared ? weird. so i looked on the google market and installed it from there…and voila!!! root function granted. so far,im sooo amazed how much faster this rom is compared to the hyperdrive rom i was using before!! Thanks for all your help Max!!! High on Android rules!!!!

          • EROD says:

            Max, Thanks for all your work it has really guided me through the noobness of rooting! However I am having this same issue and I installed the SUPERSU update and the error I can see the app but when I open it “There is no SU Binary installed, and supersu cannot install it” I believe i have lost my root and i have not been able to re-root following your guide. I am running the GNABO rom 4.4.2 note 10.1 2012 n8010- any help would be greatly appreciated.

            • EROD says:

              **Disregard: The fix I did for this was uninstall the SuperSU through application manager. Rebooted into recovery wiped Dalvik cache flashed – then rebooted. When I rebooted the app was not there however. After reattempting the method I thought to go into app store “downloading SUPERSU” (enabled app) and then it appeared in my icons. When I opened it, it asked me wether I wanted to use CWM method or normal method to reset the binary. I tried the CWM method but it failed and I had to reboot, then I tried the “normal” method, nothing happened however I did a root check and it was rooted again I was able to use rooted apps no problem. (titanium backup and download drivers with viper)

  5. Shaun says:

    Quick Question: You say to make sure CWM recovery or higher is installed, but i can’t for the life of me find that. If i follow this link from above

    Scroll down to flash over CWM: and pick N8010/N8013 (mirror) the version number is …

    If i follow the link on the XDA page to … I can find the recovery but it’s .img not a zip, so im a bit lost ??

    Thanks in advance for your help

  6. Gus Jackson says:

    Gnabo V5.5 is absolutely stellar. Mikyno at XDA has really nailed it. My flashing path:

    1. Install PhilzTouch CWM on N8013 using ODIN.
    2. Download all zips needed for Gnabo from XDA forum.
    3. Boot recovery, goto storage and mounts, and format /system
    4. Wipe data/factory reset.
    5. Wipe cache.
    6. Wipe Davlik
    7. Install Gnabo V5 zip
    8. Wipe cache
    9. Wipe Davlik
    10. Install Gnabo V5.5 zip
    11. Install Kernal zip
    12. Install SuperSU zip
    13. Install phone removal zip
    14. Reboot and do setup (wireless won’t work here) get as far as you can.
    15. Reboot into recovery.
    16. Install wireless fix zip
    17. Reboot and finish setup. (wireless working fine)
    18. Enjoy Gnabo…..what an excellent ROM.

  7. josh says:

    Hai Max,
    i have some questions, im using the n8000,i’ve have flashed gabo rom today,but there is something odd

    1. I installed the rom and the super SU just fine, but can’t install the bootloader for the n8000, but the strange thing is the rom works.(is this okay?)
    2. All the features and 3G is fine, but i can’t switch on the wifi.

    please help

    I’ve been a fan from our sites since the galaxy keep up the good work pal.

    • josh says:

      Misspelled your sites..
      Sorry for my bad English..haha

    • Max says:

      You need to install the bootloader, what is the error you getting?

      • josh says:

        it just freezes when i started to install the bootloader
        no notifications on the screen
        after i click install the zip, the text Finding update package,openig update package, and installing update “Bootloader ND5 ‘KitKat'” appeared and then it freezes
        at first i thought its still loading and then i waited for a whole night and the screen is just the same as i left it

      • TITO Linos says:

  8. angel says:

  9. Shaun says:

    Hi Max, I’ve been looking around for the gapps link, is this the right one ?

  10. TITO Linos says:

    Some people said that in this fantastic rom google apps are missing, I do not see the zip with all of the apps! Thanks

  11. Steven Chew says:

    For installation directions, MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE CWM Recovery FIRST!!! Please download latest CWM for your Note 10.1 HERE and install it with ODIN.
    I am having a N8000 and followed your link to update CWM recovery but there are so many types such as touch, ohme touch. Would appreciate if you could advise me as to which one to pick . Thanks

  12. Damian says:

    Hey Max..
    If i install this rom on my gt-n8000 along with the bootloader and everything’s required. Can the device get hardbricked if something went wrong? Also will I have a problem changing to another rom because of the bootloader change?

  13. Mahmoud says:

    Is this Rom compatible with GT-N8020 ” LTE version” ?

  14. Charles says:

    Im new to this. How is each one of these steps performed. Do I use Odin or is this copied onto my notes hard drive or external drive directly? Are there suppose to be more zips besides the ones provided in this thread (Flashing Path #2), If so can you provide me a link to them please?

  15. waljan says:

    gus jackson thank u too very good stetp by step guide..

    why the phone removal ZIP?
    does that affect CALLING/TEXTING APPS?
    because pinger/magic jack wont boot, other than that is GOOD.
    please excuse my NOOB question..

    • eddie says:

      hey max,
      i also just noticed g note 10.1 n8013,
      wont charge while device is off…
      any fix for this?
      would b highly appreciated.

      • eddie says:

        or has anybody had a battery issue not charging while OFF?
        and now it only charges up to 71% wtf..

        please help MAX..

  22. Jonathan says:

    when i flash another rom will my bootloader go back to the normal one?

  23. Jonathan says:

    Can you please answer my question about the bootloader; this is the only thing i’m waiting on before I install your rom. Thank you so much.

  24. Cris says:

    My touch stop working after installing this rom. I went back to stock 4.1.2 and touch is still unresponsive. what to do ?

  25. Cris says:

    my version is GT-N8010

  26. Jonathan says:

    I’m not putting it on mine it’s a wifi version; not going to change the bootloader if you are having all that trouble Cris. Maybe a good thing that Max didn’t answer me. If I had a 8000 I might would install it then.

  27. Mark says:

    Great Rom, works brilliant on my 8010. Really fast! Thanks Max.

  28. Johnny says:

    Installed this 1st time. All working well. As easy as any custom rom really. I used the latest version of TWRP recovery it works well. I used it as I’m most comfortable with it.

    If I do come across any issues I’ll be back, but so far so good.

    I’m on an n8013 in UK if that helps anyone.

    Thanks to everyone involved in developing this rom.

    Ps my battery charges all the way.

    • eddie says:

      my battery fully charging too, just not while in off mode…
      but other than that is working great..

      • Johnny says:

        Yeah I have spotted a problem with the battery.

        It charged to 100% . I have used it all day and it’s still saying 100%.

        Plugged in charger and it tells me I’m fully charged.


        It’s a great rom but this might be a deal breaker.

        • sid says:

          Love the rom but have two issues. Battery sticks at 100% but resets when rebooted. Other issue is otg usb keeps connecting and disconnecting. Can see file names but it disconnects after about 3 seconds and then reconnects. Have tried programs on play store without success. SeemS to be at OS level. Any solution?

          • Grax Bishop says:

            I had the same USB connect and disconnect problem as well. I found the answer in the XDA forum, where it says to flash the boeffla kernel onto the Note 10.1 N8013.

            I flashed the latest beta version of the kernel (at the time of writing it was “”) onto my tablet and now it can recognise USB connections again without disconnect.

  29. Johnny says:

    OK, of it’s own accord the battery indicator suddenly started working. I have no idea what happened but it jumped from 100% to 37%. I have charged to 100% again and it seems to be draining normally now. I’ll keep an eye on it.

    If that is fixed I’ll be keeping this one a while:)

  30. carl says:

    Rom works great on my 2012 gt-8013 but carnt get the mirror screen function to find any devices like my chromecast etc. Chromecast app works ok. My battery stayed at 100% for 2 days until I rebooted now showing correctly. Does the check for updates function actually download and install the updates? This is a great rom and has bought my device up to date. Its a shame Samsung forgot its customers.

  31. Katalin says:

    Hi max !
    Somethings new about my post ? Thx for ROM. No problem until now.
    For all the people : if you will folow step by step to install this ROM you can not make something wrong!

  37. Amal Samanta says:

    Hello Max,
    Thank you very much !! I installed Gnabo Rom on N8000 but WiFi not working. It works only thru SD Card. I did load GT-N8013-KK-Wifi but still it is not working. Please please guide me. I like this Rom very much and have got a back up in TWRP made.
    Thank you very much in advance.

  38. glitchgod says:

    Is there a theme for this its a great ROM but ungly as hell

  39. Amal Samanta says:

    Dear Max,
    I tried to do a fresh install as advised by you but with TWRP– but while installing flash BL ND 5 zip it says zip signature not found and installation failed.
    Could you please advice.
    Thanks in advance,

  40. Randy says:

    One little problem. I cannot see my sdcard content. The ROM let’s me use /sdcard/0 folder. But it can’t allow me to access /sdcard.
    One more thing thanks for the ROM I’m loving it.

  41. Amal Samanta says:

    Dear Max,
    I tried reloading on my GT N8000 a fresh installation through TWRP by deselecting signature verification of zip files Gnabo Rom v5zip,update Superuser SU v2.0 zip,flash BL ND5 zip and GT-N8013-KK-WiFi Fix zip. I could flash the Gnabo rom but again with out the WiFi. Please advice.
    Thanks in advance

  42. Snapz says:

    Superb ROM thanks for the great job with V6.
    Running very well on my n8010 with only very occasional hiccups.
    One odd item is the eBay app search function will not work as expected… on entering text and pressing search it just opens a new search dialogue box with no results displayed!
    All other apps seem to handle text perfectly.
    I suspect it is a glitch with the text entry box handling?
    That said thanks again for the ROM.

  43. stefun says:

    Hey max,

    I really interrested to install Gnabo ROM on my GT-n8020 . Because it is not for this model what can happend? Have it the funktinallity of the GT-N8000 without LTE or does nothing work for me?

    Thanks for reply

  44. edgar robles says:

    Hi Max, I installed the rom without issues, thanks…..

    How many space does it require cause the sdcard memory is almos full (1.5 gigas free of 16 gigas)

    thank u

  45. Sunny says:


    Awesome rom. Took me a while to get into cwm recovery but I got everything working. However, I am still having two problems. 1) When I press CTRL on my keyboard, nothing happens other than a, z, x, c, v lighting up, so Im unable to use special characters. Second, my wifi works but once I reboot it does not automtically reconnect. I hve tried to install the wifi fix but everytime I do, the cwm recovery freezes. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

  46. jay wright says:


  47. SamS says:

  51. Marvin says:

    Wow..this is a great Rom..I have the N8013 and everything is working flawlessly. I was s little nervous at first because there was alot of steps but I guess im no longer a noob! Just do what Max says and you will be fine.

  52. Carlos says:

    Hello Max,
    Excellent ROM, I have installed 6.5 version on GT-N8000 but, WiFi don’t switch on, Any fix?
    thanks, from Colombia.

    • Carlos says:

      Hi Max and other friends,

      I solved my problem with wi fi, install an official rom n8000 with odin, that way I recovered the original bootloader.

      I think the problem is to install the bootloader; the first installation install the three files, but we just install the rom and upgrade super user.

      Even the bootloader never finish installing on my N8000

      Thanks, I test it and I am telling you how it goes.

      good ROM

      Greetings from Colombia

  53. Sunny says:

    I installed the gnabo rom and everything, however not my device is not being recognized by the computer. I have tried different pc’s with different wires and I have of course installed the correct drivers. If you can Max, please let me know how to fix this.

  54. Sean Barnhart says:

    Do you have a kernel for this ROM that can be overclocked? Tegra won’t work cause the current kernel isn’t overclockable. Thanks man

  55. Marco D. says:

    GT-N8000 – Viber 5.0.2 is closing when making or receiving a call. this happened on Gnabo 6, 6.5 and 7.
    anyone has a solution?

  56. Marco D. says:

    GT-N8000 – Viber 5.0.2 is closing when making or receiving a call. this happened on Gnabo 6, 6.5 and 7.
    anyone has a solution? i believe it is not a viber issue but rather another dependency.

  57. Devon says:

    This is no jokes the most frustrating rom i have installed on my N8000. i have repeatedly tried all steps mentioned to get my wifi to work, no success. some apps just dont connect to the internet when connected to 3g. it lags. i’m so frustrated. looks like it has alot of potential but at the moment it doesnt nothing more than frustrate me.

    • Leonard says:

      to get my wifi to work i formatted system and wipe data and dalvik then i installed the rom first then rebooted then went back in to recovery and flashed the wifi fix then rebooted then. it worked then. I then finished installing all the rest of the zip files

    Hi there,

    First of all, thanks for the rom. Great job.

    I myself am having a problem, such as other users for what I could see, which is that WiFi is not working at all. I have a n8000.

    By the way, when installing the bootloader from CWM the tablet restarted just after selecting “install”, so it might not have been installed properly.

    Anyway, I tried to install the WiFi fix for the other versions (even though it’s not the same version as I have) but it didn’t solve anything.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks! D.

    Hi… thanks for the rom! I’ve been using it for a month now, works good, sometimes little bugs, but sporadically, and one that’s constant is that the battery always show at 100%, but is not, I think that’s the only thing I’ll change…
    thanks again!

    Hi Guys,

    I have installed the Rom and after the first installation, the Rom was very instable. It sometimes reboot automatically without any reason, further I have noticed that the action memo app does not work properly after opening the app and try to opening this memo. When action memo opens the memo it goes blue and when I want to edit the memo the pop up will come up with “Action memo stopped” and shuts down Action memo.

    Now I have re-install the Rom again and it seems to be more stable than before. Until now no reboot.
    However, I still encounter the action memo crash. Anyone the same problem? Is there a fix for this?

    Btw, Max thank you for the great ROM and installion guide. I really am happy with the ROM (ecxept for the Action memo crash) hope you can help me with this.

  62. Kmizeta says:


    I’m too with the action memo issue that Indosolo describes above. Is there any way to reinstall this app?


    • indosolo says:

      Kmizera, I have fixed the problem. Instead of Version 5 rom of gnabo, I have installed version 7. No problems now with action note. Hope this helps.

    Hey Max. Love your YouTube videos. I can overclock this up to 1.4 using setcpu. Any way I can bump it up more?

  64. Luca says:

    Hi. I installed everything on GT-N8010 and it work fine, but the MultiWindows manager application say that the file feature.xlm in /system/csc can’t be modified: read-only file system.
    I have verified that the superuser works well and have correctly grant root permission to MultiWindows Manager.

    How can I add app on multiwindows?

    I’ll appreciate any help.

    • Luca says:

      I can add some information.
      With ES Explorer I have verified that the file exists and that it is in the correct directory (system/csc).
      The file has rwx rwx rwx permissions and the owner is root.
      System and csc both have rwx r-x r-x permissions and the owner is root.

      It seems actually that – as the error message in Multi Windows Manager says – the file system is read-only.

      I even tried to change the permissions of system and csc in rwx rwx rwx but ES Explorer says “failed operation” even if I put in ES Explorer the option Root Explorer.

      Previously I had the stock ROM with root and multiwindows manager worked perfectly.
      I really need multiwindows with my other application, because I’m studying english with e-book or comic reader and vocabulary in the same windows.

      I’ll be very thankful if you can help me.

    Is there anything you can do to update this ROM and make it work better?

  66. Dana says:

    Gnabo truly is a unique ROM, I went from neglecting my Note 10.1 – to using it every single day! My Gnote looks and feels like a brand new device, pair that with the one and only Boeffla Kernel and you got yourself an out of this world performance, love it!


  67. Dana says:

    I meant to add: For those of you wanting to try this ROM, everything is working flawlessly however; if your looking for an updated Gnabo version, I strongly recommend Boeffla kernel. One of the cool features I mostly like about that kernel besides performance, overclocking and tweaking, is the ability to adjust colour and brightness for a sharp look.


  68. Leonard says:

    With the Gnabo rom is anyone else having problems with the mic in the browser I cant seem to use mines in chrome or stock browser. Is there a fix for this?

  69. Jim says:

    Love the Gnabo Rom and it works great on my N8013. I’ve recently had an email issue. I was able to add one email but no others. When attempting to add I get a small black box that says ‘Email has Stopped’. I thought it might be the app so I tried to add email to Cloudmagic, same exact error. I went back to the stock app, deleted by account and now it wont let me add any accounts. This is my 2nd install with the issue.
    Again I have a Galaxy Tab N8013.

    Thank you.

  70. Mel says:

    touch wiz having issues. Is there a fix? Or should I just try reinstall?

  71. Ben says:

    With my GT-N8013 Turned Off … when I plug in the charger, the tablet starts up or if I plug it in My computer with it off it automatically starts up . Everything else seems to be working great .
    Is this normal or how to fix this small problem ?

    Thanks Ben

    Hi. I have an N-8013 and flashed Gnabo v5. It is awesome. The only problem is that I cannot get Google Now Launcher to work. I get a message to clear defaults on Touch Wiz, but is grayed out. Any ideas?

    • Jose Biggiotorres says:

      Tried several times to get it to work. Found that if I pressed the ‘Home’ button it would toggle to Google Now. OK, started using that and gave up. Last night it prompted me to update the SU. Clicked on it to update and selected via recovery. After it updated the SU and rebooted got a message asking if I want to use Google Now Launcher or TouchWiz, Selected Google Now and the problem is fixed. So, it may have been a fix on the SU? Do not know, but it is up and running using Google Now Launcher.

  78. jay says:

    I read the whole thread about this ROM but it seems like that this MAX guy don’t have any response regarding the battery charging problem. Please respond to this problem cause I’m having the same issue with my N8013.

  79. kirk says:

    I would love to try this but am new to this. I was able to get su and cwm on my note 10.1 8013 but see a bunch of problems others are having. So a step by step instruction sheet by someone who has successfully completed the process would be a great help. Until then I’m pretty much in the dark on how they actually are done right. Somebody please try to help me out!

    • kirk says:

      Still looking for updated instructions that even a noob like me can use. Also the bootloader link has been hijacked to another page that I don’t know what it’s about! Damn this is hard to sort out.

    Thanks for the rom! It works flawlessly on my Gnote 10 n8000!

    My only problem is I want to restore my S note data.. is there anyway to do it? Thanks!

  84. Richard says:

    I love this rom. I didn’t find the latest version of the cwm so i used one a little older. Only problem I’m having is many of my apps don’t work if i need to log in first. So apps that store my settings crash when it gets to the screen for entering login and password. Any ideas? I don’t want to reset to factory.
