Ok, so I'm not new to Samsungs and I'm not new to modding, but the Note 2 is different from any experience I've ever had. I've had a SGS2, SGS Blaze 4G, two different SGS3's (i747 and i9300), and now the i317.

So, here's the issue. I got the phone off Swappa and it was pre-rooted with a custom recovery already. So it really wasn't much to upgrade to TWRP 2.7 and flash CM11. All's good for the next two weeks. Enter stage left: busted USB cable.

I come home from work yesterday to find my dog chewed my charger. I have more at work, doesn't help me at home (45 minute commute). Naturally, seeing as how I haven't charged in a couple days, it died.

Got to work this morning, plugged it into the charger aaaannnddd nada. No charge. I figure, "I remember reading about this in the DN3 thread!" So I borrow the battery out of my coworker's N2 and he charges mine while I use his to flash. And my hunt for bootloaders begins.

I've flashed:

GN2_N7105_(4.3_MK5_permissive_kernel).zip (as suggested in the DN3 thread): no dice.
cwm-i317-ucucne5-modem.zip: again, no dice.
A couple others, I did have about 50 tabs open on my browser, and I've lost track of what I actively have installed.

With each one of those, I checked my Build Info with Android System Info, and it reports my bootloader is I317UCAMA4

I've even tried flashing a couple kernels, including AGNi_pureSTOCK-v4.2.4_N7105_4.4.2_AROMA-signed.zip and cwm-i317-ucucne5-kernel.zip (which coincidentally makes android.process.media and com.android.dialer crash consistently), and still nothing. This is the problem with a device that has a bunch of variations: information overload.

So, I ask the community for help.

What I want: TWRP / CM11 to function optimally and to charge while powered off.
What I need: the proper kernel and bootloader, preferably in a recovery-flashable format, but I'm not too shy to Odin if necessary.

Thanks in advance for your help

re: charging problems
I have two I317's. One has the 4.1.2 bootloader and one has the 4.4.2 bootloader.

4.1.2 bootloader- if I install a 4.4.2 rom, it turns the phone on if I plug in the charging cable. It won't stay off while charging. The charging works normally with 4.3 roms. I also tried this with the MJ4 (4.3?) bootloader.

4.4.2 bootloader- if I install a 4.3 rom and try to charge it with the phone turned off, it hangs on the empty battery charging symbol and cannot be turned on without a battery pull. The charging works normally with a 4.4.2 rom.

For my two phones and 4.4.2, the rom has to match the bootloader for charging to work properly.

That makes sense. Would you mind linking me to a 4.4 bootloader? I've searched all up and down and no matter what I flash, my bootloader stays at UCAMA4.

Just be warned...I don't think that you can revert back if you flash the 4.4.2 bootloader. You are stuck with it until something newer comes out.

I'm pretty much an avid CM'er. That's one requirement I make to buying a phone, unless I buy at launch (which doesn't happen very often). Does it have official CM support. But I do appreciate the heads up.

I get that. I played with stock deodexed for a while just to play with the spen features, but I can't stand the default apps on TW (dialer, messages, exchange email, etc)
