I apologize in advance if I am asking a dumb question. This is my first time rooting and installing a custom rom to my Note 8. I tried looking at various custom roms and kernels that are available but all the lists of features are so daunting to me and I can't figure out which ones are what I'm looking for.

I'm not looking for heavy customization. What I really want to do is delete bloatware, use air command, and have lockscreen and notification customizations. Can anyone help me and recommend me the best custom rom/kernel that will let me have these options?

I think you should go with Civato Custom ROM, it's the most popular one:

Thanks for you reply. I'm a little confused why one link offers a rom and kernel and the other link is just a kernal. Is there a difference between the two kernels?

Also, if I download one of the above, do I need to install this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2794785 if I want to use Air Command?

If you install the ROM it includes that kernel but a newer version may be available to flash after your first boot of the ROM.

The AirCommand feature can be installed using an option in the Aroma installer for the ROM but it needs to be run separately from the ROM/kernel installation.

See the OP of the ROM for more detail.
