Default [Q] Why Can't I Use Custom Roms

Every time i install any of the custom rom on my Hong Kong GT-N7105; the screen flickers on the Samsung intro screen and then it goes dark. If I press the buttons a few times it'll finally come on, but it does it every reboot. It also doesn't recognize the SD card and corrupts it. I'll finally get aggravated & go back to stock. What can I do different?

Another question. Why do I have to wipe & reset settings every time before it will reboot on stock after I install it with Odin?

Well, that's about what I decided to do. I don't like stock 4.1.1 looking like Gingerbread. I sure had a lot better luck doing my Note 1 that is when i stayed away from the D2att Roms.

Make sure you are installing a custom rom for the N7105 because the roms for the N7100 don't work on the N7105.

I have the same issue like yours few days ago but i manage to solve it. The problem lies with the root file. May i know what file did you use to root your phone? I use cf-auto-note2 on my N7100 but after changing it to CWM.... it works like charm. Do try it out.

Previously... after root or flash custom rom, my screen flickered. After changing to the right root file.... it is solved 100%

Sorry, I just now saw your response. I use the SuperSU 0.99 root file in the Note 2 Tool kit. There's a Superuser 3.1.3 but it wouldn't install. I'll look for & try the one you suggested. Thanks...

i just found & ran the CF Auto Root you suggested. It loaded fine, but I tried the Paranoid JB Rom and it still crashed. So, I'm back to square one.

Do not use CF Auto Root. I used that before and it crashed too. Look for CWM Recovery.
