For those of you who want to enjoy the new Android 4.4 KitKat ROM on your Galaxy Note GT-N7000, you will have to follow some new directions as things have changed a bit.

First of all, Android 4.4 KitKat custom ROMs require you to be using CWM Recovery v6.0.4.3 or higher.  Since CWM Recovery is integrated with the kernel, it’s going to cause problems for most of you who try to install Android 4.4 custom ROMs as most custom ROMs have an older version of CWM or TWRP.  (Btw, do not use TWRP as they are currently not compatible for installing Android 4.4 ROMs.)

So, the simple solution is to flash a kernel with a CWM recovery v6.0.4.3 or higher.  You can do this by just installing one of latest version of CM10.2 as it comes with latest version of CWM.

But I made things a bit easier for you guys and just extracted the kernel from latest CM10.2 so you won’t have to flash the whole ROM.

Step 1. Download n7000-CWM-KitKatCompatible.zip which has the latest CM10.2 kernel with latest CWM v6.0.4.5.

Download n7000-CWM-KitKatCompatible.zip

Also, make sure to download the Android 4.4 KitKat custom ROM you want to install along with Android 4.4 Gapps.  In this example, I am installing Omni Android 4.4 KitKat ROM.

Step 2. Reboot into your current CWM/TWRP recovery.  If you don’t know how to do this, simply turn off your phone then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons for around 10-20 seconds until you see CWM/TWRP recovery.

Step 3. If you see CWM Recovery 6.0.4.3 or higher at this point, you can skip to Step 11.

Otherwise choose “install from zip” for CWM Recovery and choose “Install” for TWRP recovery.  Then browse your files and install  install the file “n7000-CWM-KitKatCompatible.zip” you downloaded earlier.  This will install CWM v6.0.4.5, which allows you install Android 4.4 custom ROMs.
