I brought a note 3 for my wife for her birthday and must say I was so impressed I have now ordered one for myself and am currently waiting for it to arrive (be on bread and water for a few weeks now lol). The main reason I was so impressed was the features of the S-pen and do not want to lose any of its features. However, I really am not keen on the standard icons in the taskbar and the quicklaunch etc. I really prefer more colours and the hey look at me style
So my question: really not sure what to do and wondered what you guys thought and recommended should I root and install a theme or customise using something like wanam or I like quite the look of the BobCatRom should I go the whole hog and install this (if I do will the s-pen still function the same). and also I presume that the second I root I will trip the knox counter can you foresee this being a problem in the future.
Thanks in advance for any advice
Yeah it's a nice phone..
Well any ROM that is TW based and not AOSP based will still have SPen features, there's a few ROMS, Bobcat/xnote/alliance/civz/omega etc etc, it's pretty much personal choice as they vary by quite a lot - You can use a theme sure, or you can theme a custom launcher like Nova/Apex etc also.
You may need to read up on KNOX and other rooting issues, however since you are UK -- KNOX won't be an issue for you under the EU directive.
