Saurom ROM for Rooted AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717![1.9GHz Overclocking][Best Custom ROM]

For those of you who want custom ROM on your AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717, I highly recommend you to try the Saurom ROM, which is pretty stable now and gives you “wings” with overclocking up to 1.9Ghz. I’ve got it running stable at 1.89Ghz with Quadrant scores around 4000. Other than that, it comes with customizable JKAYMODs allowing you to customize parts of the user interface.

UPDATE: Please see the latest Saurom ROM RC7.1 instead!!!

This ROM should give you much better battery life and faster performance and is probably the best custom ROM you can get for your AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717.

Try it out and let me know how it works for you!

    does updating to the CWM 5.5.04 fix the force close issue???? i am stuck here with in a tethered reboot on oem att rom every time my phone turns off or dies…

    would updating to cwm 5.5.04 and reflashing either the oem rom or a custom rom make this go away…..

    ICS or Saurom ??? Pros and Cons?

  6. Cory says:

  7. Jack mcClure says:

    Just ran out and got the Note. The rep at Best Buy told the Note has wi-fi calling. I use wi-fi calling alot since I have poor reception in my house. The new TMo Galaxy GSII has wi-fi calling. Does the Rom you reccomend still maintain any of this functionality? Can it be included if not in any updates?

    Thanks –

  8. Mark says:


    Thanks for your great advise. I just rooted and installed CWM per your videos. I am cool with the stock ROM for now, but I would like to overclock my Note. Do I have to flash Saurom to get the overclock app/feature?

    Keep up the great work.

  9. Anthony says:

  10. syed says:

    will this work on galaxy note N7000

  11. Dr. Jessie says:

    I have download the saurom rom and its works great except when i tried to turn the phone off it turned off and rebooted right back on. any fixes? thanks

    • shad says:

      I have same problem and my flash player hasnt been working either. I have asked the question in you tube few days ago too but with no response. Will let you know if I hear anything as well.

      • _____hOmz says:

        I had the same experienced about not turning off completely if u press and hold the physical power button. I added power off short cut key on my notification area and it works. Try adding one, hope I answer your question…

        • HawaiianJohn says:

          I had the same problems… would reboot instead of shutting down totally. I installed ‘Quick Boot’ from Android Market (err… I mean Google Play)… and it works great. The great thing about it is you can boot straight into CWM with it instead of having to hold the buttons while it boots. 😉

  12. Drockafella says:

    hey thanks for the help!

    but im missing the over clock kernel…any ideas?

  13. stephen callaway says:

    after flashing this rom my phone will not connect to gsm or lte!!!! It deleted all the apn settings! done some research and not finding anything that helps.

    • Jeff says:

      You can do either of two:

      1) You can enter the APN settings manually

      Name: ATT PTA
      APN: pta
      MMS Proxy:
      MMS port: 80
      MCC: 310
      MNC: 410
      Auth: none
      APN type: default,mms,supl,hipri

      2) or reflash Saurom and install ATT APN fix zip before rebooting:

  14. Kumar says:

    Hi, I rooted, unlocked my at&t samsung galaxy note and installed saurom rom on it. Now it is not turning off. I try to turn it off but it comes back on. I am using T-mobile on this phone. If saurom rom doesnt work for me then how can i get back to stock rom and can i overclock on that. Please help

    • HawaiianJohn says:

      Get ‘Quick Boot’ from the Google Play store. It works great and allows you to shut down, reboot or boot into recovery!

  15. Shahin Khameneh says:

    Will all these roms on this site that work on ATT work with N7000 also? Will this ROM work with N7000? Galaxy note is coming in a 2 days and i cant wait to root and mess with it!

  16. hOmz says:

    After u flashed your rom into saurom rom u will notice that the home button is no longer vibrating. Well u can put it back by going to JKAY deluxe setting, set misc options and check home btn haptic feedbk.

  17. kim says:

  23. Ivex says:

    I just finish unlocking my AT&T galaxy note I-717, but the 4g only 3587k, if I install this saurom rom, do I need unlock again? And any other problem?

  24. wayne says:

    everything works great and that was a very informative tutorial but I have a quick question,.. if i wanted to flash a custom rom like sauron, would i have to redo everything I already did like unlocking, rooting, installing the tmobile 3g/4g mod etc?????

  25. Chad says:

    Just flashed over to Saurom and everything seems great except I dont have the overclocking kernel app either. Anyone figured this out yet?! Im super curious to see how much difference 400MHZ x 2 dual core will do.

  26. Bigman says:

    After install the Saurom, everything works very well, except as mentioned above “can’t power off”, and also I can not connect Kies anymore. Please help!!!

  27. CODE4POWER says:

    will this work on galaxy note N7000

  28. Michael says:

    Does it work with Rogers carrier ?


  29. phatcawkbrah says:

    Its a good rom. The only thing is it won’t last as long if you over clock it to1.8. Aswell it does work for Rogers version of the phone.

    • Ashley says:

      Also after flashing to Saurom i couldnt get past the Samsung logo on boot up so Im currently runing the HYFR Rom and can only get 2G T mobile service i’ve tried the T-Mobile modems and my phone wont read the sim card or give me network access. Does this have anything to do with ICS. I tried vk1 and kid and the ics versions with no luck. am i doing something wrong????
