For this week’s ROM of the week on the AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717, check out latest version of BeanStalk ROM.

Based on latest Android 4.3.1, BeanStalk ROM brings you a TON of customization and the latest multi-window features (ported from Omni ROM).

With this ROM, you will be able to multi-task using multi-window feature even without a TouchWiz ROM!  Of course, this multi-window isn’t perfect yet and you cannot resize it but still gets the job done.

Other notable features include PIE control, HALO floating notifications, Xposed App Settings, custom animations, and lots more.

If you are looking to experience the latest AOSP multi-window, definitely give BeanStalk ROM a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    hi nice to meet you and i was wondering when are you going to get the update for padawan ???? casue i have the padawan 2 but thats it 4.1.2 and i cant upgrade any other oss on my samsung i717. Maybe due to the size cause the padawan is 800 something size and any other is less than 200meg so that could be the other case. so please let me kno if or where i can get the update of padawan thank you again.

    Hi Max, im having these problem with these roms. I have a i717 note, i’m able to flash roms like padawan, blackstar, etc. all roms over 700 and 800 mb, when i try to flash other roms with 170, 180 or 200mb TWRP give me an error, what else should i do with these “small” roms? this question drive me crazy because i want to try other roms like carbon, pacman, etc… Please Max, HELP!!!!

  6. pollirox79 says:

    I’ve been waiting for this for the longest! But Hey Maxx I have the same problem every time I try to flash a rom that’s about 200 mb in size or less I get error and it does not flash .

  7. pollirox79 says:

    I’t been about 25 minutes since I tried flashing the ROM 3 times doing everything in order and NO CIGAR I used CWM .

  8. spacecadet says:


    i’ve been trying to get this damn thing to work all day and now i’m left with a note with a wiped cash, system, devalk cash and a rom that won’t flash!!! this is driving me nuts!!


    • Max says:

      Just try formatting /system, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot. Exactly in that order, don’t do the dalvik stuff.

  9. liv says:

    It is a wonderful piece of programming. BUT the phone goes too hot and the battery melts away too fast.
    I have to go back to my trustworthy CM10.1.

    Guys, please try and solve the problem of the power drain.

    Thank you.

      At this point, I’m thinking we need a checklist so we can compare pros and cons of ROMS for this phone before spending days all coming to the same conclusion.

      You have to be a developer to comment on xda, or take time to get in your 10 general forum posts (who has that kind of time to waste in a crowd?) So, here we all are, unable to get real problems fixed on the ROMS, or to know if they ever got fixed without wading through 137 pages before you load it and see if it got fixed. I do enjoy flashing roms and I’m great at internet searches, but the xda forums seem an inefficient way for users to wade through things.

      Right now, my list is better battery, decent speed (1-2 seconds to get to phone, app, camera), working video, camera (and a GOOD camera…doesn’t have to have photosphere, but has to get me good control and features, do love Google’s spot focus/blur, but cannot get the video to work even on 4.4.2), and youtube. It seems broken on 4.4.2.

  11. pollirox79 says:

  12. pollirox79 says:
