Default Note 2 demo unit

Hi I have a note 2 demo unit of eBay a few of them are on there. I wanted to ask can we install twrp and a custom rom on it should I install a stock rom on it first or just install recovery and a custom rom. Anyone else out there with a demo note 2 unit what have you put on it and how? have you had any problems etc. Any help would be appreciated thank's.

Punctuation would help a lot with understanding your post. Why don't you just flash a custom or stock ROM?

There have been several threads about these devices before. If it's a proper demo unit, you won't be able to flash it.

But others have successfully flashed it its not a matter of not being able to flash it its which rom and any other problems arises the other threads state they have flashed custom roms onto it so how can you say it won't be able to be flashed?

What I would like help with is how to back up my current recovery and system images so if it goes pots up I can revert back to what I had anyone know how to do that?.

Do you Just want it as a media device or actually use it to make calls? Coz I think it doesn't ship with an imei number therefore you cannot use it with any network.

Nexus 5 - 32GB - D820 - latest 4.4.4 Mahdi ROM with Franco's Kernel

Sony Xperia Z Ultra - C6833 - White - Latest stock rom and kernel - rooted with Dual Recovery.

Well big update i flashed uk simfree rom via odin stock rom with the 16gb pit file to reclaim the lost storage as demo only shows 5 gb now showing 10gb avaliable. Well after this stock worked fine but when you wake the device it would crash i think this was a problem with cpu dropping too low that others too have reported. So what i did next download tool kit for note 2 and rooted device and install twrp and busybox after this i downloaded the latest omega rom v11. I flashed the omega rom and now the demo unit works great minus phone but viber works great for making call works fine .well done if any others having problems do what i have listed thank you.

Update i ran a quadrant benchmark it scored 6535 (Not bad for a android)
