  2. elel says:

    Hi, I have CWM installed but I’m not sure how to install this ROM. Can someone please give me a step by step on how to do this? Do I also use CWM to back up my current ROM? Also, I dont need my desktop to do this correct?

    Sorry for being a noob at this!

    Thanks!

    Hello, I’m new to this site and so far I think its pretty awesome. I would like to install a rom on my ATT note however, the videos that instuct on how to install a rom are unavailabe due to some error involving a youtube account. Is there another way to view that information?

  4. moneybythaton says:

    TO INSTALL THIS YOU NEED TO FIRST DOWNLOAD THE .ZIP FILE I PREFER IF YOU DOWNLOAD ON DESKTOP AND WHEN YOUR DONE CONNECT YOUR DEVICE TO YOUR COMPUTER IF YOU HAVE A SD CARD IT WOULD BE ALOT BETTER CAUSE MOST FIRMWARE ROMS TAKE UP TO 668 MB AND IF YOU HAVE A COUPLE ROMS YOU WONT HAVE ANY MEMORY LEFT. AFTER YOU CONNECT IT TO COMPUTER LOOK FOR YOU EXTERNAL SD CARD AND DRAG THE .ZIP TO YOUR EXTERNAL FOLDER WaIT UNTIL ITS DONE THEN PUT YOUR PHONE IN RECOVERY IF YOUR ON STOCK OR ON ANY OTHER ROM I PREFER YOU DO A FACTORY RESET AND CLEAR CACHE PARTITION DOING THIS MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP YOUR NUMBERS VIA GOOGLE AND APPS VIA TITANIUM BACKUP. AFTER THAT GO TO INSTALL OPTION IN CWM AND CHOOSE INSTALL FROM SC CARD DIRECTORY AND FIND YOUR .ZIP ROM AND CHOOSE INSTALL AND JUST WAIT BUT MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR CURRENT ROM OR YOUR STOCK FIRMWARE THATS IT IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND SRRY TAKE CARE DAWWG.

  8. PoogMahoon says:

    Sorr Max i did not mean this Rom i meant. ALBA ROM

  9. Okie_Bama says:

    Well I downloaded this rom, took my time and did everything step by step and i have to say a great rom. So far I can not find anything that is not working on this rom. And it is very fast.

  10. goresick says:

    This rom works great. I’ve been running Black*STAR IV since it was released. I’ve been using h0tkernel r5s1 @ 1.83GHz and getting blazing scores. The new Black*STAR V is slated for release today!

    Give credit to bigfau since he created this rom along with some great help. Best battery life on a rom Ive had in forever

  12. JS says:

    I’ve been thinking about trying a new rom, been on Onlyone Goldie for a while now, and really no complaints other than battery life (kang or not, it runs very smooth and stable). But it seems like that rom is slowly becoming abandonware, if the banter on xdadevelopers is anything to go by. Still, I’m not a flash-a-holic yet, so will probably stick with Onlyone until the end of the summer, then I may try this one out. Or not. We’ll see.

  13. elissia says:

    I flashed this rom on my galaxy note i717 but the 4g is not there im getting edge

  14. alex says:

    hi….I installed this but no clock app

  15. steve says:

    question : does anybody have problems with svoice…..every time I try to use svoice stop working

  16. tim says:

    Do you prefer this ROM or the ParanoidAndroid for the i717? I want an ICS rom (I’m currently on SauROM GB) but I don’t know which one to use. I want an experience similar to SauROM (good battery life, with TWiz for the SPen functions). Thanks Max! Love the site.

    • Max says:

      You can try Black Star ROM, pretty solid.

      • tim says:

        Can I remove the black theme? I prefer colour on my phone and not to have everything in black and white.

        • Chris says:

          Did you ever figure out how to remove the black theme? I really like the black star rom but the black theme is really annoying. If not, did you find another rom with snote/smemo, good stability, speed, and battery life that doesn’t have these themes?

  17. Jek says:

    With Tmobile’s version coming out on the 8th August, Do you think the Tmobile modem and ICS be available for ATT version?

  18. Juno says:

    I rooted my galaxy note yesterday and installed CWM Recovery by odin flashing tar CWM tar file. I checked and my phone was properly rooted. After that, I put this rom into external SD card and booted into CWM Recovery. The thing is CWM Recovery does not see this zip file(it says no file in the folder). I rebooted the phone and put the rom into internal SD Card, and CWM Recovery still wouldn’t recognize this file. Can you tell me what’s going on? Thanks.

    • steve says:

      i had the same problem… so i did this… restore my galaxy note with samsung kies, then i root my phone again but this time i did not install rom manager, so everytime i have to do a back up i do it manually , pressing power and volume up and down, after first vib release the power botton , it will boot in recovery then i install the rom i want to install… backup and restore whatever i want … it works… now i do my backups on my external sd card ….. sorry my english is not good ….may the force be with u

  19. manny says:

    many thanks. how do i fix svoice problem?

  20. troy says:

    Love this Rom was running only one hypher and goldie for a while. I think i found my new Rom for awhile i ran quadrant on this Rom and my note i717 got a report at 3578 awsome so i put the blaze modem on after thinkin i would get a better report but not at all tried quadrant test again and Finnished with 3448 anyone know what happen? or a better modem i should be running.

  22. tony says:

    It’s simple question what rom will give me the full galaxy s3 look with s3 dialer for galaxy note? That’s all i want to know you don’t have to be rude. If you did’nt want to answer question don’t answer question. I just need to know ok. Simple as that an’t that why everybody’s on https://www.rootgalaxynote.com to learn things. Not to be rude but to learn and share things.

  23. Jason says:

    Best part of this rom is the notification selections and the lock screen are they available as stand alone apps? Plus the clock app is missing from the app list.

  24. troy says:

    I love this Rom I don’t care to much about the clock app missing i just went in to CWR and did advanced restore of that app although i am getting lots of nova launcher not responding is there a fix? . Or is it cause i have kill al activities when i leave them checked off can someone help thanks

  25. elel says:

    Hi, I had this error in Google Play after installing this ROM: “App Name” could not be downloaded due to an error. (Error retrieving information from server. [RPC: AEC:0])

    What is the solution for this? Thanks

  26. Fox says:

    Well for my first time rooting my Note and installing this Rom it went very good, everything is working with the exception of S Voice crashes pretty much right after you open it? I dont know if anyone has a fix or not?

    Great Rom, super fast and great features!

    Thanks!

  27. manny says:

    • elel says:

  28. Daryl says:

  29. troy says:

  30. troy says:

  31. Jek says:

    Tmobile’s out with its Note. Does anyone know when we can expect Tmobile’s modem and ICS?

  32. Wayne Johnson says:

    I have ics on my i717 and id like to know how to enable the scrolling toggles (wifi, blue tooth gps ect) so i can add more to the notification menu.

  33. Rick says:

    Help! I’ve been using this ROM for a couple of days without issue. Today my phone shut down randomly and will not turn back on! Odin will not even recognize my phone. I’ve tried removing the battery for several minutes, I’ve tried putting into recovery and download mode while plugged into my PC, and nothing!

  42. Dominick Marcil says:

    Could someone assist me here with a little problem that I have , I rooted and installed Blackstar VIII yesterday on my GNote SGH-i717 with Rogers. Unfortunately not long after, I started to get the message “system ui stopped working”. I followed tons of advices, factory reset, hard reset, remove apps, remove sd card, wipe cache etc etc. Does anyone what I should do next? Or how to get my phone back to stock rom. Any help is appreciated.

  43. Stan says:

    Hi Max, how can I disable the LTE on the Black Star VI?
    The option seems missing on the Mobile Network Setting.

    Thank you.

  44. Bert says:

    Hi Max,
