Sure, you're gonna say, why bother.. There's JB and KK now, but I like GB and wanted to see what it's like on the N7000?

All help gratefully welcomed..

Thanks, Lister
Pristine LC1 is a good option. Its in the OP of the pristine thread. All GB kernels are safe, as above mentioned.

There is no 2.3.7 or CM based N7000 rom

Hi @ASMI1, @kaborayyan, @nokiamodeln91, @AndroidSlave,

Thanks guys, with you're help.... I've finally made it !!! It appears CheckROM HD v6 does not want to flash under Philz (or some other recovery, cant think what now??) However I did manage to get it to Flash under Abyss Recovery Kernel (which is based on GB kernel, apparently).

So it has flashed now, not had chance to play around with it yet as am at work... But just by looking at it, it's bringing back the GB love....

Yes I know it's sad, why go back to GB?? lol. But sometimes it's just nice to go over, for old times sake... Used to do it on my ZTE Blade many a times...

So, (quick questions).

1) With this stock-ish rom, can I remove/tweak/clean up, and then package it (in CWM) as a flashable rom?? or do I have to backup/restore only in that version of CWM??

2) It safe to flash any version of CM9, without using flashing a seperate recovery afterwards... and still avoid the eMMC. It's only official STOCK firmware that killed them....


Thanks once again guys for all your support, I know its not normal (and frowned upon) to use older firmware... But just wanted to see what GB was like again...

Cheers, Lister

1) not really unless you use a new version of philz touch recovery, which wouldn't happen because on the n7000 the recovery sits on the kernel, thus you are stuck with an old kernel and old recovery. As such your best bet is to do a nandroid backup. Further - when you restore such a backup, I recommend flashing abyss again first so you are in the Ame recovery it was made in

2) yes. Just be concerned of Stock ICS (4.0.4) with a custom recovery. Never flash temporary cwm.zip. matter of fact, just avoid stock ICS at all costs. Newer versions of cm9 are safe. Avoid very old cm9 versions. My personal recommendation to you would be Paranoid Android cm9 ( I think it stopped at around .4a) that one was amazing.
