For this week’s AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717 ROM of the week (and also for Rogers/Telus/Bell users), check out the preview version of BeanStalk ROM with latest Android 4.4 KitKat.

This version of BeanStalk ROM is still a work in progress and has everything working out of the box except for video replay, camcorder, and YouTube, which are broken.  Luckily, we do have CWM Recovery to backup your current ROM and try it out for few hours.  My best suggestion is to simply install the latest version of CWM Recovery v6.0.4.3 (as you need it for installation), make a backup ROM, install KitKat ROM and try it out.  Then you can restore your ROM back when you are done.

Overall, KitKat Android 4.4 is probably the biggest change we’ve seen so far since Jelly Bean and it is highly recommended you overview the Top 10 Features of Android 4.4 KitKat.

In probably a few weeks, we should have a more stable build of Android 4.4 KitKat with video replay working but in the meanwhile definitely try out this BeanStalk ROM with KitKat over the week(end) and do let me know how it goes for you!


Download BeanStalk ROM Android 4.4 KitKat for AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717 (also compatible with Canadian Note Bell, Telus, and Rogers)

Download Android 4.4 Gapps (DO NOT USE OLDER 4.3 Gapps you will FC!!!)

For installation directions, MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE CWM Recovery FIRST!!! Please see How to Install Android 4.4 KitKat compatible CWM recovery on AT&T Galaxy Note!

Once CWM recovery or higher is installed, simply reboot into recovery, make a backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot.  When you are done playing around, simply restore ROM using CWM recovery.

Note: This ROM does not have root enabled by default but you can easily enable it for adb & apps in Developer options.  If you do not know how to do this, see this video.
