Looking for a solid Touchwiz-based ICS ROM for your Galaxy Note GT-N7000? Try the all-new Sweet ICS ROM, which I am currently running on my Galaxy Note, it combines the best of Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 features by including cool stuff like the Note 2 Gallery app, Note 2 Paper Artist App, Galaxy S3 Music Player, and more.

Honestly, I was having a bit of trouble with Paranoid Android ROM as it would slow down after awhile. But this ROM is pretty darn solid, giving you some mix of the best out there.

So, give this ROM a try and let me know what you think!

  2. Lisa says:

    Awesome timing.. was getting annoyed with Paranoid

  3. nikki says:

    Just installed this rom with hydracore kernel and it works so beautifully.. So much better then ParanoidAndroid Jellybean. This rom has very little lag, and is nice and fast. I had a lot of issues with ParanoidAndroid JB, so this is a very welcome change. THANK YOU MAX!!

  4. AndrΓ© Borgneth says:


    WhatΒ΄s the best kernel for this room??

  5. Hemant says:

    I m also want to know best kernel for this rom
    Thanks! !

  6. Karim says:

    Looks like the CM10 memory leak got fixed along with a ton of other things, so Paranoid will probably have these fixes today or tomorrow.

  7. gujnik says:

    Thx for the “update” πŸ˜‰ . Wanted to remove paranoid anyway, so this Rom comes at the right time πŸ™‚

    I have a question though. I installed the Rom and everything worked well until the moment I restore my backup whitch required a reboot. Since then, the only thing I get to see is the flying android. It gets stuck even befor I can put my pincode in.

    Any Ideas how I can fix that problem?

    Thx in advance.

  8. Diego says:

    Hi Max, all the features you said comes with the Stock Rom 4.0.4 (all but paper artist)!

    PS: I tried BlackCNA but the memory leak make me change to the stock rom again and wait for the official 4.1.1

  9. Samantha McKenzie says:

    Hi Max, i just installed this ROM with the Abyss Kernel and its wonderful but when i try to download apps from the app market it give me this error and says its not compatible with my phone any idea why??
    If anyone knows!? πŸ™

  10. ManTai says:

  11. nJam says:

    • kevin says:

      Max, its ok. Those flying android actually installing all those app needed for this rom. Thanks. Anyway what is the best kernel for this.any link? thanks

  14. Gujnik says:

    Max it’sok. I changed Kernel (had franco) to hydracore and now it works. The only problem is that if I run titanium to restore my backup it gets stuck after a reboot. I’m kind of new at this flashing-mania, somaybe there is sth i’m missing.

    If you have an explanation and time to answer it would be great πŸ™‚

  15. Krlos says:

    Gorgeous!!! thanks.

  16. Winston says:

    does this rom offer good battery life? how does it compare to rocket rom v11? because I’m using rocket rom 11 now… dunno whether I should switch over…

  17. cyrus says:

    Max, where can I get the hydracore kernel!
    I’m one abyss kernel right now still using kingdroid v3 rom… its ok and I didnt face any problem I just like a change

  18. Karim says:

    Max, the CM10 memory leak got fixed a couple of days ago, along with a ton of other stuff. You should try Paranoid again!

  19. Rob says:

    Hello Max, just a question is there a version for the ATT Note?

  20. Frank says:

    Hi Max, thanks for recommending this. OMG, this rom is so stable. I’ve installed this over franco kernel and is working fine. Nearly got 30% extra battery power over the gnote original 4.0.4 rom. So far so good

  21. John says:

    Hey guys,
    I have tested most of the roms out there, I have been on crash for a while, because I fount that it was the best one. But when I flashed this rom, wow… Best ram management, very stable smooth and very nice looking rom. This rom is the absolute best rom for the galaxy Note so far.

  22. bhvy says:

    bro my download stops at 49 percent..there is a error in website or else…i have tried 7 times n always stucks at this ,,plz help me

  23. bhvy says:

    yuk battery drainer…it drained my 90 percent battery in 2 hours.

  24. opiujn says:

    Have someone tried Nova launcher on this rom?
    I can install it, and I can start it without any error messages, but it just don’t switch to Nova.

  25. Lim Kim Yih says:

    do i just drag this SweetROM thing straight into the phone? Do i have to drag it in any file or something?

    • opiujn says:

      Hi Lim Kim Yih =)
      Do you mean the installation file? If thats the case, then you save it somewhere on your internal or external SD on your phone and remember where you saved it, then follow Max’s tutorials for how to install it. Before installation you need to root your n7000 if it isn’t rooted already.

      • Lim Kim Yih says:

        Do you have a link to root N7000? πŸ™‚

        • opiujn says:

          Just click the category ROOT GALAXY NOTE on top of this page and chose method depending on your current rom version (ics or gingerbread) and model. There you will find Max’s text and video tutorials. =)
          If you are not familiar with these things yet I recommend you first read a lot about rooting, cwm recovery, backups, odin, emmc brick, to lower risks of crashing/bricking your phone, and to be able to get it back to life if you soft brick it.

  26. zaine says:

    y does the flying android take so long to disappear! it has been thr for the past 1hr!

    • opiujn says:

      If its been there for an hour something is wrong. Flying android is the boot animation. Guess you will have to try again.

      • nikki says:

        that happened to me too.. I went to recovery mode and backed up everything, and cleared both cache’s .. re-installed the kernel i wanted, and re-installed the rom.
        That fixed the dancing(?) or flying android issue.

        • Steve says:

          How long does the android fly for? It’s been flying for about 20min now? Tried clearing the caches and re-installing Abyss kernel then reflashed with SweetICS, still flying…

          • opiujn says:

            It should just be flying for a few minutes during first boot after installation. And the boots after that he will fly you to your rom much faster xD But maybe your android is aiming for the moon.

            • Steve says:

              So you think 20min is a bit too long then? It seems like mine is aiming for another galaxy! Should I flash this ROM with the Abyss kernel?

              • opiujn says:

                Yes, 20 min is too long. Your android is for sure lost in space right now =) Try install Abyss4.2 and after that REBOOT recovery.
                Then perform a full wipe and install SweetROM again. Hopefully that will get you back on track.

            • nikki says:

              true, it keeps going for a few minutes after the initial boot, but not as long after that.

    • nJam says:

      Try to install the main ics rom wich is provided by max in his guide to update to ics through odin n then just install sweet rom thru recovery……i have done all rom through that procedure it alwys works fine cz it’ll do all these things from scrap n then u really feel the changes of the new rom

    • Tipos says:

      Hi guys,

      Same happened to me as well. Flying is taking forever…First time I am seeing this using the same procedure with Abyss Kernel. Had to abandon it. Installed CRASH v10 back.

      Too bad. Wanted to try it…

  27. DJ says:

    Love the ROM but I hate how the status bar looks.

  28. kamikazi says:

    hi:! to isntall this rom i willl flash franco kernel whit mobile odin then full wipe and caches and… then flash it?:!
    im really sceard about brick so i Wonna make sure:D

    • bhvy says:

      first u must be rooted n dont use odin…
      1. go to recovery
      2.install zip from internal sd n then install abyss note kernel
      3.reboot recovery
      4.delete all user data
      5.again install zip from internal storage
      6.install this rom

      • kamikazi says:

        delete al user data u mean full wipe? only the full wipe? no dalviks or..?:!

        • Bhvy bhsin says:

          It doesnt matter if u delete dalvik or cache partition after full wipe but no problem with that u can delete those too…
          Remeber to install abyss and then go to option Advance options and reboot recovery so that u can work with abyss.
          Go ahead without fear…

  29. Mubeen says:

    When official JB is out for the note, will I able to apply the official update from sweet ICS rom?

    • opiujn says:

      Maybe.. but I wouldn’t rely on that. Do a nandroid backup of your stock rom that you can restore when stock ota jellybean is available in your area, before you install a custom rom. And if you from some reason would fail to restore that stock rom backup later on you should at least be able to download and odin flash one.. jellybean stock too as soon as it is available, or ics.. to ota upgrade.

    • Max says:

      You can easily update using Odin yes.

  30. Mubeen says:

    Data not working in sweet ICS! Any workaround?

  31. johnhoon says:

    wa lao ea, is great , i very like this rom, thank you.

  32. Shawn S says:

    Thanks Max it works great only one question, i have a software update in que. will this work with the sweet rom? im afraid to try it.

    Thanks again.

  33. joshken says:

    hi, it’s very nice room thanks but if you can please add arabic language

  34. kamikazi says:

    wow its amazing best ROM i had not even a bt lagging (jsut laggging a bit in all roms i had when i zoom out in home screen)
    btw i dont got lock screen? can anyone help?:( i also didnt in rocket rom)

    • opiujn says:

      Strange you don’t have the lock screen.. Are your lock screen settings are ok, have you checked those settings? If they are ok and you still doing have lock screen then try an lock screen app from Play Store =)

  35. TJ says:

    I have try many Rom, after that i stuck with my loading screen, the phone also go in the android system, i can lock screen and unlock but it still stuck with loading screen, anyone can help me ?

  36. Amit says:

    Hello guys I have been on this ROM for more than a week now its almost perfect but lags a lot of times specially the gallery and the camera…I get a totally scattered screen sometimes have to remove the battery and switch it on again…I am on the Hydracore Kernel….Any of you people out there facing the same problems…and suggestions are welcome…Thank you and Keep Rocking

    • NIKKI says:

      I am using Hydracore Kernel, and i haven’t had the same problems you are having, but i may have a suggestion .. I would suggest you back up everything, wipe all of the cache’s, and re-install your kernel, and then re-install your ROM. You might’ve skipped a step or 2 when you initially installed the ROM.

      • Amit says:

        Hi…Thanks for the reply….I have installed the ROM through the Absyss Kernel than I have flashed the Hydra core kernel…Is that the reason for the hangs….and Wat about the failed camera issue that pops up every time I switch on the can for the first time…than its ok for the second time….kindly help

        • Nikki says:

          The camera issue is unusual. I don’t have that issue. Flashing hydracore after abyss should not be an issue. I think the best thing to do is a complete reset. Flash everything you want on there (i.e. hydracore, sweet rom) and re-root your phone. More than likely you will lose root after you re-do everything, but rooting again is not hard. If that doesn’t clear up your lags and hangs, i’m not sure what will. But, i have a feeling this will work. Hopefully you have titanium backup, so you can restore anything that doesn’t pop-up after the reset. If titanium doesn’t pop-up, just re-install it from the google play store, and it should automatically show all of your apps and programs. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

  37. Jason says:

    Hi Max, thank for this ROM really great though I have some minor problem. After installing apps from gplay and open it, it suddenly forced close (example apps are: photogrid, linkedn). My kernel is hydra under pegasus. Appreciate your reaponse Max. Thanks

    • nJam says:

      please try it with the rom first u have done to update ur GB to ICS after rooting, provided by Max in his tutorial to update to ICS, then after that u can do any rom without any kernal. first i have done it with rocket rom n then now with this sweetrom n i really luv this rom cz all those features in note 2 available in it without lags or any problm. so i suggest to do all flashing roms first with the rom provided by max to convert to ICS n then u can simply install any rom from CWM n njoy it’ll never create any problems like other users have…………hope it’ll work for u

  38. Steve says:

    I still can’t get this ROM to install. I have tried with Abyss, Hydra and Franco and neither will allow me to get past the boot screen (Flying Android) Any ideas anyone???
    Going back to BlackCNA 2.1 but really want to try this one as there are a couple bugs with CNA.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    • Kanishka SAUIS says:

      I have tried a lot to install this rom and it even doesn’t take me to the boot screen and it installs within 20 – 30 seconds which is impossible so i give up and during these three days i tried almost tried about 20 roms and for now my best choice is Asylum CM10 jelly bean and this is awesome so far.

  39. zam says:

    hey max..

    this is a great ROM, i have try to many ROM already and this one is the best..

    just one question.. when i install this ROM.. suddenly it have software update..

    should i update it?? if the update will replace the gallery i don’t want to update it..

  40. Jamadar says:

    Hi Guys/Gals,

    Forgive me for the noobie question but could someone tell me the process of flashing this ICS rom if i want to switch from the Paranoid Jelly bean rom.

    A simple 1,2,3 instruction would be great if someone could take the time to do that quickly.


  41. opiujn says:

    Hi Jamadar =)
    It’s probably safe to wipe on the kernel you are on right now, but I would recommend the old proved Abyss4.2 cwm method anyways: 1.Install Abyss4.2, 2 .REBOOT recovery 3.Full wipe 4.Install ICS rom. Don’t forget to nandroid and titanium backup first by the way.

  42. Etteloiv says:

    Hey Max, I am new in rooting and flashing ROM’s stuff, and I get everything done, my sweet ICS ROM is working fine, but there is a problem, why couldn’t my data work? When I enable my data network, I can use it to surf net no problem, I can go to any website, but the problem is, all my other apps doesn’t and won’t recognize my data network, for example: my WhatsApp won’t work, I can’t send and receive message as well. And also waze navigation can’t find my network add well. But when I connect to wifi, then all the apps can work just fine. Any idea where I messed up? Thanks!

  43. joshken says:

    hi, Max or anyone please can you add Arabic to your roms????????????

  44. Mircea says:

    Hello, I have a problem whit this ROM, I can’t remove Ads from aplication, I have Adfree but it’s not working

  45. Atilio Pereira says:

    this is the best ROM I’ve flash. Very grateful Max.

  46. Joelson says:

    I love this rom, works perfectly and fast…

    But the power on animation is terrible…

    I change with this one


  47. walter says:
