For this week’s Galaxy Note GT-N7000 and Note 10.1 (GT-N8000/GT-N8013/GT-N8010), check out Illusion ROM.

Based on Android 4.2.2, Illusion ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) that’s a mix of many cool features.

Probably the coolest feature on Illusion ROM is the Key Lime Pie theme (from Android 5.0) and its transition animations. You also get UI customization that will allow you to customize your ROM similar to AOKP ROM Control Settings.

The ROM also comes with HALO floating notifications ported from ParanoidAndroid ROM.

Overall, this is a very fun ROM with good performance and battery life so definitely check it this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    • Kailashtalanki says:

      It says that gapps are for 4.2 , means that after you flash your ROM your device is running android 4.2 and gapps of v4.2 are the ones which are compatible with your device……So they should work , if they don’t just get a root browser and go to root of your sd card and system->apps and delete whatever apps are not working and now install whichever gapps you want from the play store……………..

  13. stevekourou says:

    The ROM is great but I spotted three things.
    1.Something goes wrong with the Greek language. Some letters(in Greeks) are appearing with “?”.
    2.On my tablet when I’m charging it(closed) the battery “widget” is like cracked all over the screen.
    3.When it’s on and charging,the battery icon don’t “charge”.

    Any solution about the language?This is the only really annoying think.
    P.s. I have the note 10.1 WiFi edition.

  14. ahmad says:

    great rom, super smooth
    but ext sd card not working, what to do?

  15. Helmut Stephany says:

    Awesome smooth ROM and the best I have experienced.
    One question please.
    Since using it, when plugging the charger sometime, but not always the phone (N7000) powers of itself. Now,when I switch it on again later, it asks me to setup (Google account/language, WLAN settings, chrome settings etc as if I was initializing the phone for the first time.
    Completing the setup everything is fine and no apps or data missing (beside the fact that things like greater or pocket have to be reactivated again as well
    Anyone else experienced this?
