For this week’s AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717 ROM of the week, check out ParanoidKangDroid ROM.

Built specifically only for the SGH-i717, ParanoidKangDroid ROM is another great “hybrid” AOSP ROM (what is AOSP?) that’s a mix of AOKP, CM10.1, and ParanoidAndroid ROMs.

It’s very similar to JellyBAM ROM as far as major features of AOKP ROM Control and ParanoidAndroid Settings but you will find some different customization menus in this ROM.

Why run ParanoidKangDroid ROM if JellyBAM ROM is working fine for me?

If you are having a blast with JellyBAM ROM, I suggest to stick with it but ParanoidKangDroid ROM is another great option if you have trouble with JellyBAM but still want to get hybrid features these ROMs bring. Having more options don’t hurt, right?

If this sounds interesting, definitely give it a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    I’ve been using this for about a week now and love it. The folks at XDA helped with the one issue I had with JB based ROMs and all else has been great.

    • BVNS says:

      Hi Wolfegang. What was the issue you were having with the JB based roms and how did you fix it? I’m thinking about trying this one, but haven’t had the best luck with JB based roms in the past.

    • BVNS says:

      Have you been encountering any force closes with this on your I717 and are you having any issues with 4G?

  2. mazen says:

    stay hi in android this is an awesome room i love it

    • Chris Whoa says:

      Totally agree, plenty of ROMs here I tried were buggy, slow, crapped out and contained all sorts of issues. This is the first solid problem free high speed build Ive stumbled upon. Sticking to ratings and reviews from now on rather than what the mod promises 🙂

  3. shadow2201 says:

    Can this rom be used on T-mobile Network?

    • Max says:

      You mean on i717? yes if you flash tmo modem.

      • shadow2201 says:

        Yeah i717 i can flash anyone of the tmo radios on my i717 with this rom it should work

        • craszh says:

          ThisAfterI’m Using TMobile And I Didn’t Have To Flash TMobile Modem And I Still Get 4G Street Flash ThIs ROM…..For Some Reason My Swype Keyboard Is Not Working Good On This Site As You Can see.

        • mohaned barak says:

          Hi … I used some of the tmo radios on this ROM but they didn’t work, which are the same tmo radios I used on some ICS ROMs and worked before!, so can you help me by a link of the Tom radios which work on this ROM?

  4. cbolante says:

    Is there a way to root my phone using a Mac OS?

  5. Ralph says:

    Max— Im using JellyBam and I love it— what are good settings for performance and better battery life?

  6. Dimitri Williams says:

    Hi I was making a comment to ask how I can transfer files from my computer to my phone. I am currently running the Jellybam Rom. However, I wanted to try This newest rom. But when I went to plug my phone in, it did not bring up the usual Samsung phone options where I can directly place the files onto my phone. Instead it asks me to use the disk that my android phone came with. I have even gone to the Samsung website and downloaded the driver software that I was missing. Still, it did not work. I used to just re-flash this 4.1.2 rom because it used to easily let me access my phones settings for file transfer. However, unbeknownst to the fact that I cannot transfer files on the Jellybam rom, I deleted it. I love the Jellybam rom however, the only thing I have noticed that is strange is the battery life. When I first flashed the rom, the battery life was INCREDIBLE it had a discharge time of at least 5 minutes between 1 percent. Now I have noticed that, even though I am still doing the same things I did a day or two after flashing, the battery life declined a little bit….Do you know any solutions to this?…..and sorry for the over drawn paragraph…heh

  7. shadow2291 says:

    I can’t install its giving me error Status 7 Any fix for that?

  8. BVNS says:

    I am finding that the battery discharge rates are very high for this rom. Maybe it’s just my i717, but even setting the performance options to “battery saver” results in faster discharge than on one of the older ICS based roms. Just curious but is anybody else encountering this as well?

    • craszh says:

      no i have the same issue with battery drain and my phone gets hot too. i’ve notice all the JB i’ve installed so far have problem with battery drain. i use black star x and have no problem with battery, but signal and wifi started to have a little issue after about a week of use. when Max said ROM of the week i guess it’s good for one week. Now i start to catch up. LOL

      • BVNS says:

        Hi craszh,

        Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, I decided to go back to Padawan 8 because in addition to the battery drain, my phone started to heat up too, even if it was on “power saver” for the whole day (shouldn’t it only do that if you’re actually overclocking and not running it lower than stock?). Padawan 8 has been a solid performer for me, I’ve never had a crash with that one, even though I’m sick of the older UI.

        I really like the JB UI on this rom and many of the JB based roms and the options are outstanding with the three together. But the reality is I need rock-solid stability with anything I use and I just haven’t had that yet with any of the JB roms. Maybe it’s just my phone, I don’t know. Here’s hoping when the newest version of Avatar comes out of Beta, it fits the bill. Looking at XDA they’ve made a bunch of improvements since the last “stable release” and it’s now based on CM 10.1.

  11. Balaji says:

    Its been one day now and rebooted 4 times so far

  12. jim says:

    max, i have only had this running about a day but noticing that some of the features in the AOKP tutorial are not available in this rom. namely, the navring and the navbar. i see the settings for both of these (slightly different than whats in the tutorial) but neither show up anywhere when enabled. i dig the way you had the navring setup to replace the dock, really want to do that. this is my first jb rom and really like it so far. appreciate any help you can give!

  13. Terry Louizos says:

    hey Max, I had this rom for about a week now and really testing everything out and trying to push it.
    no problems found, this rom is very snappy on my note and nova is a pretty nice launcher to go with it.
    I recomend anyone liking this upgrading to nova prime, really great features.
    I think the best thing for me is the nav rings , what a diffence it makes without a dock. Im not a fan of docks now because of the nav rings.
    Every other customizing feature takes getting used to but i recomend really playing around with it to really unlock its potential. There is alot of features in this rom, which gives the user alot of options.
    Had only reboot on me about 3 times this week but not really an issue.
    Over all pretty darn good rom.
    ps…..go 49ers

    I’ve installed this paranoidandroid rom “­pa_n7000-­3.­10-­18MAR2013-­062243.­zip” on my rooted galaxy note n7000 and i really like the design, especially the menu at the bottom.
    But if I install gapps the android keyboard doesn’t work anymore.
    I don’t know how to fix that bug, help please!! (I really like this rom!)

  23. Jomac says:

    Love this rom! I’m new to rooting and am not sure how I can know if a rom is compatable with my i717. I see an update on the developers site, but it doesn’t specify my phone model. Can flashing incompatable roms brick my phone?

  24. hess says:

    I am receiving error 7 for this rom…. help

    • Aaron Brown says:

      Hess, you need to use the newest TWRP recovery, CWM recovery is too outdated to flash this ROM. Download the las test TWRP RECOVERY zip and flash in CMW and reboot into recovery. Then wipe data/factory reset/system 3 times then flash/install ROM. Be sure to make a backup in TWRP after flashing the TWRP RECOVERY zip before you flash this ROM. Just in case you have issue.
