installation instructions
Please note this rom is based on NC5 however should run on any build given that either one of two dependencies are met.
1. If on MK2/MJ7 install make sure you have used a method to get Safestrap working on 3.72. Google it.
2. If on a loki or dev edition device then install a custom kernel after installing the rom.
3. If one a NC2/NC5 non rooted device you will need to do a partial downgrade to 4.3 MK2 then update to a prerooted NC5 or other KK rom w/ Safestrap verision 3.72 installed.
If you're not sure what you have, look. To determine your bootloader version, go to terminal emulator or adb shell and type "getprop ro.bootloader" (without quotes)
current download
DONT FLASH ANY THEMES YET

frequently asked questions
can i flash this over without wiping?
You can do whatever you like. Whether it will work or not is another story. Net is that if you would like any manner of support, you need to follow the directions here.
how can i apply to my rom?
Many mods are available for download within the rom itself. Download them to your phone, use file manager to transfer anything you want onto the external SD card, then boot into safestrap. Choose the install button, and select your zip. Once you're done, press restart. Depending on what you've done, the phone may reboot itself a second time after it configures all of your applications. This is normal and is not a bootloop
is there any fee for using bajarom?
There is absolutely no charge for using, or support of this project. If you have the means and appreciate the hard work that has been done to make this the single best ROM available for the Note 3, there are donate buttons available
is there risk involved in flashing this rom?
Yes. Flashing roms of any kind, BajaRom or others, has some degree of risk. Generally speaking, most any situation can be overcome at this point by using Odin and reinstalling factory-fresh files. However, the device is yours, the responsibility is yours. If you find yourself in a situation, we will do our best to assist, but we cannot and will not be responsible for what you choose to do to your phone.
why are there two editions of the same build?
A special edition of BajaRom was released with build 8. This special "Combat Edition" is intended as a small tribute to all of our men and women in the US Military. Your work is appreciated, and we thank you for your service. Because of the extent of the modifications required, each build will include a link to the normal version, as well as the Combat Edition ROMs. At this point there is no build 9 combat edition; this may become a theme for subsequent versions.
i like what i see but i'm not sure this is for me?
Because @Hashcode was able to get SafeStrap working on the VZW Note III, you can simply create a ROM slot, install the ROM, and boot to it, without affecting your existing ROM. The majority of BajaRom users end up using it is their Daily Driver, and can be installed in the stock ROM slot. Using this configuration allows the entirety of the available storage to be accessible.
what launchers are available?
Out of the box, there are two launchers available. A tweaked version of the TouchWiz launcher, and Themer. Themer is a unique concept for launchers, and is a different way of thinking of things. If you're not sure, use the TouchWiz rom to start and you can always change as you go forward.
how can I use the cool n5 google experience launcher?
Also available in this ROM for download is the Google Experience launcher, which is what is currently being deployed to KitKat Nexus 5 phones. To use this launcher simply download it from the BajaRom settings, and flash using SafeStrap (see above FAQ for more detail). Once installed, you will get a choice of which to use. Note, you MUST update Google Search in order for this to work properly.
what if i need to return my phone for warranty exchange, or how to back out

Thanks man, yeah it was a pain it took all three of us (@bajasur @reggie cheeks and yours truly) and luckily we're all experts in different areas, kernel/bootloader/partitioning scripting for me, bajasur is the original rom dev so he knows how to build roms (smali, java, apktool, dex2jar etc) and reggie is the best themer there is (seriously). It took the three of us a lot of tests and time working together to get this done. Ill write a guide soon and im glad we were finally able to get it to work. If I was still renaming BajaROM zips by their testing number we'd probably be on "BajaROM-S4-test28.zip" by now lol
