For this week’s ROM of the week, check out PACMan ROM for Galaxy Note GT-N7000 AND SGH-i717.

If you haven’t heard of PACMan ROM yet, it’s a “hybrid” ROM with a mix of AOKP, CM10.1, and ParanoidAndroid AOSP ROMs. (What is AOSP?)

The biggest features on the latest PACMan ROM is certainly the HALO floating notification/multi-tasking feature taken from ParanoidAndroid ROM.

With PACMan ROM, you will be able to experience the latest pure Android 4.2.2 along with many of the latest features open source developers have developed including AOKP ROM Control, ParanoidAndroid hybrid settings, and HALO floating notifications.

If you need to experience Android at the bleeding edge without installing a bunch of ROMs, definitely PACMan ROM is going to do the job.  Try it out this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

  6. Jay Peters says:

  7. Sujith says:

  8. Gabriel says:

  9. craszh says:

    For some reason my phone have a lot of issue with 4.2.2 can’t seem to work properly. Always going back to either 4.0.4 or 4.1.2 now at 4.1.2 Padawan JB it’s awesome. I try to stay away from 4.2.2 on my phone. Thanks.

  10. Tony says:

    I have i717. I tried to install three times but I keep getting fail. I need the Kernel for this ROM. Can u send or post the link for the kernel. Thanks

  11. Marwan Sherin says:

    Installed it yesterday…I have to say…it’s like a brand new phone…spent a year with jellybeans, but this hybrid rom is completely different, much faster too, but the phone gets real hot and chewing more on battery life

  12. Nico Miranda says:

    i had the same problem as some did with losing root after installing this ROM. i did alot of reading around and finally put a few things together. i downloaded the “superuser” (sorry i lost the link, ill look for it and once i find it ill provide it). booted into recovery (i use TWRP), wiped cache and delvick cache, installed/flashed zip, rebooted and BAM it worked. the superuser was able to get access to root and all was gravey. This is such a great rom.

    **NOTE: please be aware that this worked for me on my Samsung Galaxy Note SGH-i717. Try at your own risk, you know the deal.”

  13. Marwan Sherin says:

    I miss my S Note 🙁

  14. Jay Peters says:

    awesum Nico! post that link when you can. I am dieing to try this ROM. but no root is a dealbreaker. thanks.

  15. Jay Peters says:

    it would seem the site would let you post email address. hmmmm.

    • Nico Miranda says:

      i guess just go to google and search for “” you will get a few options. i think the second one is where i got it from. let me know if it works out.

  16. Jay Peters says:

    awesum! think I got it. thanks heaps.

    • Nico Miranda says:

      @Jay Peters did you ever get to try the fix out? did it work out for you? please let me know. I know alot of people were experiencing this issue with no root after installing this rom. It would be nice to confirm the fix.

  17. Nico Miranda says:

    cool let me know if it works out for u. its really a great ROM.

    • Jay Peters says:

      will try the ROM out today… had some things to do this morning. will let u know. thank you.

      • Jay Peters says:

        Dood! It works.I got root. This is an awesum ROM. Still playing,will let u know. Thanks.

        • Nico Miranda says:

          Dude thats freakin sweet. Glad i was able to help out. Trust me once you experience this ROM you wont want to go to another. unless they finally come out with one that has multiwindow multitasking. i have noticed minimal crashes compared to other roms. it does but not as oftern as ParanoidKang or Carbon. Im really enjoying this one…go PAC-man.

          • Jay Peters says:

            Yeah….you gotta try this ROM folks…’s fast and you got like amillion tweaks. Found me a new fave ROM!!! Pac-on ma brothers.

  18. yaser says:


    i tried to install this rom following the procedure but it fails.

    please help

  19. OakRaven says:

    Hi guys, looking for a little help.
    Trying to install this rom, followed instructions, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, and then install, and this is what happens.
    finding update package
    opening update package
    installing update
    assert failed: getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “SGH-I717” || getprop(“”) == “SGH-I717” ||
    getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “quincyatt” || E:Error in /emmc/
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    I have tried re-downloading the zip, but no luck. Help!!!! thanks in advance

  20. Oakraven says:

    OK, figured out a work around which solved the problem. If you unzip the folder go to meta-inf/com/Google/android you will find a file named updater-script. Rename that file to updater-script.text then you can edit it. Open it with your text editor and remove the line that starts “assert(get prop” etc.. until you reach the first semi-colon. Save the file, rename back to “updater-script” and then rezip the files. Now it installs just fine.

    *note… the part that you remove is just a validated that you are installing on the right phone. Which if its a galaxy note I717 is 🙂

    Hope that helps.

  21. Frohbaer says:

    Hey, just tried to install it, not my first time installing a ROM but this time it failed. Got the GT n7000. Before i had the Live Rom. Now i flashed the abysskernel, after that the ROM and than the Gapps. How ever, i can’t get into the CWM again. It automatically comes up with the Cyanogen boot screen. Also waited like 10 minutes with this screen, no changes.

  22. oakraven says:

    Silly question, but did you hold down the power button and vol up and down, wait till reboot and let go of power?

    • Frohbaer says:

      yep, pressed those buttons and waited for the “samsung galaxy note”-Screen to come up. Then i wait for the CWM to come. After like 5 seconds the CyanogenmodScreen comes up again… The Downloadmode is still available over vol down+power+home but odin won’t recognize the phone under windows 8 (even though samsung kies is installed)

      • Frohbaer says:

        and suddenly the CWM worked again. Don’t know, what changed. Maybe it felt my desperation. I’m pretty sure my note knows what’s going on deep in me. Hopefully the further flashing will work, too. Will tell you the progress 😀

        • Frohbaer says:

          AAAAND IT’S GONE. Ok… so i just flashed the abyss kernel, made a reboot. I got to the CWM Touch interface and flashed the ROM. Made a reboot and boom. I lost my progress. Same state as the one of my first comment.

  23. Viki says:

    My start up screen has been stuck on the “PAC is loading” for 20 minutes. What can I do to fix this?

    • Frohbaer says:

      Have never seen such a screen :S Which Note do you have? What have you done yet??

    • oakraven says:

      Make sure you add the gapps before rebooting, PAC will sometimes hang on the load screen if the apps are missing. You can try rebooting a couple of times, sometimes that will push it through. Else, boot back into KWM clear cache format again and reinstall both PAC and gapps. That should hopefully fix the issue. The first time PAC loads is usually the slowest, but no more than 3-5 mins, certainly not 20.

  24. mcavity says:

    I have been trying to install this rom but I’m not having any luck.
    I have root installed as per your previous video.
    I downloaded the quincyatt_PAC_JB_4.2.2-v23.0.0_20130614-203025 zip file and the other one.
    however when I try to install the rom I get the same error Oak raven did.

    finding update package
    opening update package
    installing update
    assert failed: getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “SGH-I717″ || getprop(“”) == “SGH-I717″ ||
    getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “quincyatt” || E:Error in /emmc/
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    I then tried his fix of editing the updater script file but now it doesn’t try to install.
    installing update
    installation aborted

    Any ideas what is going on?

    • mcavity says:

      Ok first part of the problem is that I was not really rooted.
      I went and found and installed that though CWM and then I had a working root.

  25. eddie says:

    hi all.. i would like to know .. what 4g modem using with this rom ? anyone know? thanks !

  26. izzat says:

    wen i flash this rom its comin installation aborted

  27. Jay Peters says:

    @eddie, yes G4 works.
    if you are having trouble getting this rom to work. make sure your recovery is the lasted version and that it IS working. ie. try to do a back up. second when you install the rom. make damn sure you to a cach wipe!

  28. Balaji says:


    Same root problem. Tried downloading one from the search. But it failed. Can anyone provide the link which works please?.

    (status 7). Anyone getting this msg should try flashing a standard jellybean ROM then try again with cm10 this worked for me in the past with jellybam rom … When I was having the same problem… Hope this helps ppz

  30. Gary Yun says:

    I tried this ROM with my Galaxy 4G LTE GT-N7005. ROM running ok except modem not working properly even flash to Roger modem. I switched back to Padawan JBv2, so far so good! This Padawan ROM provides Chinese input support & overclocking to 1.836GHz. Only issue I have is, when rebooting, the phone may not boot up straightly! I need to power off then power on again. Come to the worst, I need to restore backup then the phone can be live again! Overall, this ROM is GREAT to me!

  31. Nico says:

    Im on day 14 of running this rom. and so far it is my fave rom out. HALO is an awesome feature. I like all the tweaks. it does have its random crashes (does anyone know why roms do that) and i feel that it kills my battery alot quicker than running CM10.1 solo. Luckily I have 3 batteries on hand at all times just in case. all in all its a great rom.

  32. maji says:

    I keep trying to install this ROM and it won’t update successfully. It keeps aborting and stating that it failed: getprop(“ro.product.device”) ………getprop(“ro.bild.product”) ………. Error in /emmc/ROMS? (Status 7)

    What does this mean and how can I get this ROM to update successfully? I have the supersu downloaded to my phone. Do I need to update it in order for it to work? Please someone help me! I am using the i717.

  33. Jashona says:

    This ROM killed my root and 3 batteries. It’s a pretty good ROM though, just don’t have time to keep switching and buying batteries.

    • Jay Peters says:

      if your killing batteries. you have way to many apps running in the background. or you got a bad install.
      I been on this rom for two weeks. use my note all the time, can go all day till bed time and still be at 30%. your mileage may vary.

    • Max says:

      Try managing your syncs better, only leave the syncs you really need. If I am going out all day without a battery, I will usually turn off sync and do it manually, this will save a ton of battery life and you can go all day no problem.

  34. fahmi says:

    already using this for 5 days on my galaxy note.. battery got better but..:
    1. my icon on next launcher got jagged edge. any1 know why and how to fix it??
    2. sometimes some of my apps stop working e.g force close
    3. on my third day got no reception, have to restart. ( a bug??)
    4. not to happy when want to call or send sms in my contact,in stock JB u just have to swipe right or left :(..

  35. sagar says:

    i installed pacman rom but cant see externalsd pls. help

  36. MrMaji says:

    I would like to install the PACMan ROM but I keep getting an status 4 error. What do I do to fix this error. Prior I was getting the status 7 error message. I completed the fix from Max and it just gave me another error.

  37. Chirs B says:

    Do any (all /some) of the ROMs for the I717 have the MUILTI-VIEW feature? It seems like they should but none I have seen show the feature. With ATT now tracking the flashes I want to do it once and right. Anyone chime in here? Thanks

  38. Joy says:

    Downloaded GAPPS from Max’s link but cannot get TWRP tp flash for the life of me “Unable to open zip file”

  39. Khalid says:

    any new update for dis ROM so far..

  40. Dhruv says:

    I tried to install this ROM; but it never installed. I tried the asset fix and it doesnt work, both with this version provided on this site and the latest version on the devs site. If anyone can help, I REALLY want to try this.

  41. MrMaji says:

    I finally was successful at changing my ROM to PACMAN, after downloading a successful paranoid android ROM. But it isn’t stable. My phone keeps giving me an error message,”Unfortunately, the process android.process.acore has stopped.” How do I fix this issue?

  42. Felix says:

    they Keyboard always crash… its the only thing that bothers me… its says “Sorry, but Android KeyBoard has stopped”… How can i fix this? PLEASEEE HELLPP

  43. Diego Perdomo says:

    Definitely the best ROM … Stability, Speed, Interface, Compatibility, Innovation Guaranteed 100%

  44. Tom says:

    Bluetooth not working!!! Please help!!!

  45. Nico says:

    Ok so i loved this rom so much when it first came out, but the constant crashing made me revert back to Cyanogenmod. I have decided to give it another try, except i downloaded the latest PACman nightly, i did the deathswipe (recommended my MAX) and let me tell you wow what a difference. It is running so smoothly. I really love this rom a lil bit of all the roms i really liked. Im gonna run it for a few days i hope it maintains this stability. kudos to PACman for a great rom.

  46. whodin says:

    I cant get the link to work for some reason?

  47. whodin says:

    I have tried all three to make sure it was not just my luck
