As many of you know the GSM Note 2 is supported by Team OmniROM in a unified build format. This work is inspiring to me as the team split from CM for altruistic reasons. I have come to consider OmniROM my AOSP branch of choice due to their philosophy toward security and development.

I see a niche for our community where some of our members may be uncomfortable utilizing the unified build for any number of reasons.

My product is no more than a straight source built t0lteatt build as the OmniROM spec is drawn up for the t0lte and adapted by the t0lteatt spec on the OmniROM github. All source is available at the OmniROM git. I make no changes unless noted (in the remote chance that changes occur they will be documented/git referrenced).

I make no promises or warranty of any kind, all flashing is done at your own risk and should not be thought to be the responsibility of anyone other than the person deciding to flash the ROM. While I will attempt to help you work through issues, I do not plan on integrating non-Omni commits or "fixes" with very few exceptions. If it is broken in the unified build it will be broken in this one as well.

I plan on putting up new builds weekly if not a bit more frequently if I am inspired. If I see a change in OmniROM commits that looks promising I expect that I would post a new build. Getting to the point where stuff wasn't broken took some serious banging of the head.

Flashing instructions:

Using the most current TWRP, ClockworkMod, or PhilzTouch recovery; wipe data, system, cache, and dalvik (especially if coming from a different ROM).

Flash the unofficial OmniRom .zip file from the link below

Flash the gapps of your choice (CM or PA are good)

Boot phone and let sit on a stationary flat surface.

Do not touch the device for 10 minutes to allow the caches to build.

Reboot the device and set up

And certainly not least mattlowry for being solid from his first posts in the doubleshot community, evolving along with weekendsR2short to porting for the doubleshot, and elevating his game on the Note 2. His advice and example made the unfathomable become doable.

Mine

10/14/14 - I know the camera is a bit weird with how it won't connect after a while. This is present in the unified build as well.

Thank you for this! my Att Note 2 is far from dead and the way Att and the other "Providers" want to charge for every single little stinkin' thing.. (A 40$ SmartPhone charge from ATT? NO WAY) is ridiculous I plan to make this phone last quite a while if possible and folks like YOU and stuff like THIS make that possible! Thank you sir!

This type of thing is my way of giving back to the community and developing my understanding of the software we rely on.

Question Main Difference From OmniROM
I have installed both OmniROM and this variant but I can't tell the difference. Can you explain?

Thank you very much in advance.

The only difference is this is built from source with the I317 build prop baked in from the start. It is nothing earth shattering. Some folks really prefer a ROM built for the specific model they use.
