Default [Q] Upgrade to 4.3

Hi all,

I have an ATT Note2 flashed with CleanRom 5.0 and now wanted to go to Jelly Bean 4.3.
I researched a bit and found that SkyNote Vanilla seems to be a good to go ROM.

I looked at the instruction, it seems like I need to flash 4.3param_tz.zip first, is that correct? Do I have to flash it with odin?

Can I flash to SkyNote Vanilla from CWM (just the same as I flash cleanrom before) after the above step? I am currently on CWM 6.0.1.4.

Thanks~

Yep. Everything is in the instructions. The answers to both questions are yes.

HOW TO INSTALL
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To Install: Att
-Are you coming from a 4.1.2 rom and haven't done the 4.3 one click? See A
-If your on 4.3 (one click or odin method or received the 4.3 Ota) just Flash as normal--or See B


To Install : All Other Carriers and Models (see all other carriers below b)


A

This method ensures working wifi (ATT ONLY)
Allows backup and restore of roms
and going back and forth btw 4.1 and 4.3

(Your version of CWM will work
Try Different recoveries . Also some versions of TWRP have been known to have restore issues
Remember to remove all spaces from the backup name

-Then unzip so you have just a tar
-open up odin .. place your phone in download mode (vol down+home+power)
and stick tar file in the pda slot and flash


Hold off on this until you get ROM booted. If WiFi does not work then try devils kernel
-Or Try Devils Latest Kernel
(prevents you from having to use odin for wifi)
-but may cause lag issues or weirdness all around for ATT
ALL Devil Kernels

Concerning flashing the two files, param & tz.zip... yes you need Odin to flash those. And that is so you'll have Wi-Fi working with stock kernel!!
If you just want to flash it without doing anything! Then you'll need the devil kernel for Wi-Fi to function correctly!!
And yes you can use CWM recovery to flash Rom! After you perform the Odin flash of those 2 files above^^. I've heard people having slight problems with TWRP!
Being it would say no OS installed!
Then all you'll have to do is re-flash the Rom right on top of the first flash, no wiping of anything!!!
That's what I had to do fyi...
Working excellent with zero issues!!

I personally prefer TWRP recovery!

hi Thanks for replying.

What two files are you referring to?

The 4.3param_tz.zip contains the tar ball only.

So just wanan make sure I understand the steps correctly:
1) Currently with cleanrom, flash 4.3param_tz.tar using ODIN
2) Make sure wifi is still working with current rom which 4.1.2
3) Flash with skynote

Am I right?

It works great although I hit couple of problems.
1) long wait at the Upgrading media database, I gave up on waiting and took out battery to restart the phone
2) I also found that if I did not wipe data out first, the phone will run super slow, after wiping and restarting phone is great.

Thanks for your help!
