If you are looking for pure Android 4.2.1 experience on your Galaxy Note GT-N7000, definitely Revolt Jelly Bean ROM by XDA user JohnHany97. Probably one of the best Android 4.2.1 builds out right now, the Revolt Jelly Bean ROM brings you the best of Android 4.2.1 experience on your GT-N7000 plus all of the AOKP features like ROM Control to fully utilize the powers of unlimited lockscreen widgets and UI customizations.

I’ve been following John Hany’s for awhile now since he’s work with the Galaxy S2 GT-i9100, definitely his ROM cooking skills have improved over time with this ROM as proof.

Also note that this is the “first” version John made for the GT-N7000, it is near flawless in terms of performance/features.

So, definitely give this ROM a go today and let me know what you think.

NOTE: With all pure Android AOSP ROMs, you lose most of TouchWiz features like Multi-window, S-Note (you can use Papyrus app instead on Play Store), etc…etc… We thought you should know this before flashing these pure ROMs.

If you like this ROM, don’t forget to follow the developer of this ROM John Hany on his Twitter and hit Like on his Revolt JB Facebook Page, thx!

    My device is Galaxy Note N7000, installed custom ROM is Ultimate 5.1 android 4.1.2 XXLSC based. kernel Philz 3.99. I’ve bricked my device in the past trying to install a Cyannogen Mod ROM without reading instructions and I don’t want that to happen again. What is the safest way to flash this? Is this not a ROM for S2 devices?

    • Addi says:

      here is safest method for AOKP/ Cynagen;

      go CWM
      install CM 10.1 kernal
      go to advanced, Reboot recovery
      wipe data/ factory rest
      wipe Cache / Delvik ( in Advanced)
      go to System /mounts
      wipe, System / Data / Cache / preload
      Install zip
      Flash Revolt
      Flash Gaapps 12/12/2012
      reboot system
      Enjoy πŸ™‚

      • ovy g says:

        why is this ROM only 150MB when ROMs based on Samsung’s touchwiz are way bigger? is something missing that should be flashed in addition?

        • Johnhany97 says:

          Nothing missing, It is just that the Touchwiz ROMs are very bloated and full of really useless files compared to AOKP-Based ROMs, It is really bloated ……

          • Sriram says:

  3. Cipoi says:

    I’ve try to install this revolt rom on my gt n7000 note but it couldnt complete that task n went aborted.. pls help.. i wanted to try this rom!

    • Alex says:

      Same here, trying to flash it but system aborted.. whats going on?

      • Johnhany97 says:

        Did you make sure the file you download had the MD5 Checksum just like the one that is on the Download server ?? Maybe you had an incomplete download ??
        Do you have an unsafe Kernel ??
        Did you follow installation steps just like the ones on XDA ?

  4. Shawn W. says:

    Dear, is there a walk through you can guide?

    or some where we can find it on youtube?

    Shawn W.

  5. Elie says:

    Same here… it doesn’t work for GT-N7000 … not sure what the problem is.. but I cannot flash it.. I get some sort of exception when I try to flash the zip file..

    Also, I can’t get to
    “go to System /mounts
    wipe, System / Data / Cache / preload”

    In system mounts, you can only mount or unmount or format…

    • Jas says:

      You’ve mentioned ‘MAKE ZIP’, I’ve failed to understand that πŸ™ Can you please elaborate? Do you mean to say I’ve to create a ZIP file which consists of the ROM file and the the MD5? Both files in a single Zip?


      • GarYun says:

        I installed ReVolt ROM with everything OK except got MD5 checksum generating error when I did backup in CWM recovery! I also can’t understand “Make the ZIP’s MD5 is the same as the online” Pls explain further. Thks

        • Gary Yun says:

          Today redo everything fm kernel cm10.1 till gapp, system runs perfect except error while generating md5 chksum under CWM recovery backup! Any1 can help?

          • GarYun says:

            I downloaded the ROM again & will do installation all over again in near future! How can I know this ROM checksum is the same as the online? Pls adv if there is a way to check.

  16. kelvin says:

    After flashing the ROM, I can’t find any files under the external_sdcard folder. Actually the files are inside SD card. When I go to setting->storage-> the SD card seems having mounting problem. Some advices pls.

  17. Sidhant says:


    Greetings from New Delhi, India.

    i just installed the custom rom, but i now cannot access the internal or external memory card using USB debugging tool. I am on a mac (Snow leopard). Thus i cannot install google apps or make any changes at all to rom, since in recovery mode my SD card is not readable (i took out my sd card and placed google apps and new rom on it as well).

    Thanks in advance.

    • Frizey says:

      I am having the same issue! It will show debugging but wont be recognised by my computer. In Ultimate I would go into settings/More…/ and there is option for USB storage but I cant find any way of turning it on in this ROM. Have I missed something? This also makes it very hard to install a new ROM!

  18. adi says:

  25. Allan says:

    Very good ROM over all! I installed with Asylum-Beastmode-Kernel-v2-CM10 as the kernel. Wiped every thing as instructed and all is well. Good work really.

    One thing though, the S-Pen when hovering has an arrow similar to a mouse pointer .. how can I turn that off?? It stays there even if I write notes on Papyrus. Thanks man.

  26. Efren says:

  29. Rajaram says:

    After installing Gapps there is no camera, it says that its disabled

  30. rekamyenom says:

    I do not see any ROM’s for the SGH-T879….. WHY?

    WILL this work on the T-Mobile SGH-T879???? Will all the GT N7000 ROM’s work on the SGH-T879???

  31. Frizey says:

    Great ROM with a lot of options and good on the battery compared to Ultimate 4.1.2. I also love the more pure Android feel without the Samsung water business. I also like overclocking options and happy to not have multi-window as I have felt its a bit gimicky as its often not set well so both windows can be effectively used, particularly when a keyboard is required. However, I still can’t get wifi tethering happening with the 28.01 or 26.01 versions and cant get the phone to be recognised on my Macbook pro or PC running XP. I suspect (and am hoping) its a setting I cant find to turn USB storage on??? if these 2 issues were sorted it would be great for daily use.

    Hi mate sorry if this sounds a bit daft I came across one of your videos on you tube to manually root(not using the pc)my samsung galaxy note n7000, after a couple of hours I managed to install sweet rom v3 xxxlrt by not-I
    I have been trying to install my banking app and it won’t install it. I have also been trying for the last 6-7 hours to uninstall the root via my laptop using Odin and I can not install odin from the links that i have been using. is there anyway you could let me know of a way to unroot via my phone, Just to let you know I am from the uk so could you do me a favour and break it down into simpleton language for me.

  42. Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours take a large amount
    of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips
    for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
