For those of you looking to turn your AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717 into a Galaxy Note (software-wise), there’s a ROM for that, Padawan ICS ROM by XDA user Ptmr3. (You can also follow him on Twitter here)
The Padawan ICS ROM has a great mix of Note 2 launcher, apps, and even overclocking up to 1.89Ghz with lots of governors, I recommend using SetCPU app and setting to Lulzactive. Although the AT&T Galaxy Note will never be as fast as a Note 2, overclocking will let you run your phone as fast as possible to keep up with the latest Note 2 apps.
The homescreen on Padawan ICS ROM looks nearly identical to my Galaxy Note 2. For the untrained eye, they will not be able to tell the difference if you are holding a Galaxy Note 1 or 2.
The Note 2 gallery app of course is a must, bringing you the latest 3D scrolling and also does sync with your Google Picasa web album.
Don’t forget to enjoy your floating videos!
For apps, the Padawan ICS ROM does come with Apollo music player, Awesome Beats app for you headphone bangers, and Tweakbox app for tweaking additional stuff.
Jelly bean animations and Google Now is also included.
Overall, the Padawan is a great ROM that should allow you to enjoy the best of Note 2 and 99% of Samsung apps come uninstalled. But you do have the option of re-installing them easily by flashing zip files in CWM recovery.
Give this ROM a test-drive today and let me know what you think!
