Probably the three best ROMs on the AT&T Galaxy Note is the Padawan ROM, LiquidSmooth, and the Black Star ICS ROM.  I know, I know, you guys want the multi-window feature on the international GT-N7000 but just give it another week or two and it should be here also for the SGH-i717.

Some notable features on the Black Star ICS ROM include HDMI with h0tcakez v1.1 TW Kernel, de-bloated, 5×6 TouchWiz launcher, Apex/Nova launcher, GoogleNow, 15-toggles, tethering, and some more.

If you haven’t tried the latest Black Star ROM, give it a try and let me know which one you like more, this or the Padawan ROM.

    hello i wanted to know if there was any other roms besides sauroms that we can use our att galaxy note on tmobile and continue to use 4g instead of edge, i tried the blaze modem flashed more than once when installed with other but did not have any service when i tried the other roms, so i had to go back to saurom. or any advise would help. thanks in advance

  3. ree says:

    Great Rom max! Installed it on Twrp & its awesome! plus alot of stuff. …like the tablet mode

  4. jelliottz says:

    @Brandon you can really use any ROM made for the i717 if you’re on T-Mobile. They key is to reflash the approved modems for tmo use after flashing the ROM. I have used AOSP, CM, PA, BlackStar, and padawan on T-Mobile.

  5. Chad says:

    I’m currently running Black Star VII… Do I need to completely wipe my phone to flash this rom? Thanks in advance for the help.

  6. raul says:

    ok i have the first black star rom on my note sgh-i717 do i have to clear the phone like a new rom or can i just add it in the phone and to to bootloader??? help

  7. Daniel says:

    what “gapp” program should be used with this new Blackstar X for use on the ATT SGH-i717?

    PS: btw, thanks for this website and forum!

  8. Yen says:

    The dev always recommends a clean install on each rom update to minimize problems. Blackstar is my fav ICS rom and never had problem with it. As far as gapps, the download is in the OP or just search truth77 supergapps on xda. It has the new 4.2 keyboard and camera. Here is the blackstar rom thread link
    Dont forget to say thanks to the wonderful devs 🙂

  9. Daniel says:

    @Yen: Thanks for the feedback.
    I’m kinda new at this, you said the gapps are in the “OP.” …Wat dat??
    Also, it appears that link you attached is for Blackstar VII, not X.

  10. Daniel says:

    I followed the download instructions to the T. I was able to log into Play Store, but then immediately after received a “Server Error” so I can’t download any apps. Is anyone else having trouble with Play Store, or is it my install?

    • Yen says:

      are you in tablet mode? did you change your dpi? go to settings -> apps -> playstore -> click clear data. Open playstore then accept termd again. It should work. If you changed your dpi. You might have to put it back to the original dpi for the note which is 320 and reboot and do the steps i told you again.

  11. morana says:

    THis rom is the really cool , everything work well on it even the S-Pen for writing text really cool

  12. jeff the flashaholic says:

    I tried clicking and changing every setting i can find. I ran every app i use including all the add on’s. the only fc i got was fast dormancy in settings which i leave as stock any way. i did use set cpu to over clock and under clock. Great rom. Thanks MAX keep up the great work. Cant wait for that dual pannel on your other post rom to come out.

  13. paul says:

    Loved your build works great except when I use gmail and google search they hang and I have to reboot phone. i717 on telus.
    Wish I could keep it as its the best I have seen yet.

  14. paul says:

    I am sorry it works great for telus nolonger freezes after reinstall all google mail search and voice work well. My mistake I installed a gapp which caused the problem. Upon reinstall and rest and cache cleared all works great …

  15. Franklin R says:

  17. kdawg says:

    I was wondering if anyone was having a problem when they put their phone into tablet. I had a couple problems, Play Store said a lot of m apps aren’t compatible and also TW Home does not work at all.

  18. jose says:

    do any of these roms come with a stable android beam?

  19. dillon says:

    this was probably the best ics rom out there but the icons and feeling of it felt like its old touch wiz , i hope they use note 2 icons next time 🙂
