[Q&A]X-Note G900F S5 PORT - N9005 ONLY


Latest ONLINE : ver. 2.5 / (17 June 2014)

Guys,

I am pleased to make this Discussion thread of X-NOTE Galaxy S5 Ported ROM.

We have done enough discussion about The ROM in DEV thread which is suppose to be made for Dev discussion only.

Feel free to discuss about the X-NOTE S5 Ported ROM, BUT Please Don't Spam in this thread.

Read the FAQ (at the 2nd post) and/or use search function first on this thread or on the ROM thread, before you guys ask anything. Quite a lot questions are basically answered already on the ROM OP, and the Q&A thread.


Disclaimer :
Devs of this Rom are NOT responsible for any damage to your device.
The installation of the ROM is at your own risk.
However, the flash procedure is always performed
at least three times with a day of testing.
READ, UNDERSTAND, & FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED in X-Note Thread.



ORIGINAL DEV THREAD X-NOTE Galaxy S5 (Latest build v.2.5)
Quote:

Installation Instructions (For N9005 ONLY) :
1- Check the MD5 of your downloaded X-Note zip (v2.5 MD5 = 2BA118F027349334EC9B1574E63BD44F)
2- Reboot Recovery (I personally tested & installed with Chenglu CWM)
3- Full Wipe
4- install zip and choose the rom in your SD
5- Flash Rom Choose stuff in Aroma
6- Flash Performance Mod (Optional) -- This is only if you feel ROM is laggy on your device. I personally never flash this mod.
7- Done.

Quote:

Special Notes on v.2.5 :
1. For Call recording , Press stop in the dialer before you finish your call or the recording will keep on recording .
2. Set Pin/Pattern Lock then Set to Lock immediately or under 15secs

Max Frequency Screenon 249600
Max Frequency Screenoff 172800
Min Frequency Screenon/off 30000

FAQ'S

Q.Can I use this rom on tmo/Canadian variants?
A.This rom is made for the N9005, @fahadali2315 doesn't support other variants, He ONLY supports the N9005. However a user made a fix to get the things that work by default to work on tmo/Canadian variants. Read the "How to get N9005 roms to work on N900T(Tmo) & N900W8(Canadian) Variants" guide for step by step instructions BUT use the fix that i am linking below.

Q.How do I get secured lock screen to this work?

Q.Why does the installation fail when I try flashing this rom?
A2.Use latest philz recovery (recommended at ROM thread OP), other recoveries might not be able to flash this rom.
A2. v2.5 comes with Aroma Installer, I personally choose Chenglu CWM as it will handle Aroma better.

Q.Why is deep sleep not working?
A1. Deep sleep only works with the 2 NE6 kernels, 1 that comes with the rom and other that @fahadali2315 posted.
A2. Latest updated / tested : Aurora kernel is a good match to this X-Note S5 Ported ROM. Thanks @MojoManagement for the good kernel

Q.Can I use s5 kernels?
A.You can but they break the camera. So better to use n9005/n900t kernels instead.

Q.Why is sview not working?

A1.

A2. If A1 can't fix your device, try to go the APN, change the bearer to LTE, and then Save. Your mobile data should be working.

SYSTEMATIC INSTRUCTIONS SPECIFICALLY FOR X-NOTE ROMS

Quote:

1. Did you make sure your phone model meets the criteria?


Quote:

You CAN install N9005 ROMs on other variants, for example the N900T, N900W8,
provided you get a patch specific to your device, however if they have their specific
thread, N9005 ROMs DO NOT ALL SUPPORT IT.


2. Did you check the MD5 Checksum of the X-Note ROM after you downloaded it?

Quote:

Open this spoiler for Mac Instructions!


Quote:

1. Open Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal (or open Spotlight, and search for Terminal)
2. When Terminal is open, locate your directory where the file is downloaded, usually run this command: cd Downloads
3. When the path changes to the Downloads folder, type in "md5 XXXXXXXXXXXXX.zip" (name of the downloaded zip)
4. An MD5 code will come up, for example 614a3fac73272c9b53e74dc2ef5675f3, copy and paste this.
5. On the thread of the ROM, there should be located an MD5 code, press Command F, and paste it in the box. If the MD5 is found, then congratulations, MD5 checksum complete!

Can you pls check the contact setting FC? S view cover not working. Dialer full screen caller picture half shown on screen. Contact list is misaligned. Call from contact list shown in wrong position. I am using 289 dpi. Pls check.

---------- Post added at 05:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:52 PM ----------

Battery life is too weak may be due to deep sleep not functional. Tried some deep sleep software seems working.

Hardly the battery life is 5 to 6 hours. But the look and interface is awesome.
Thanks to all for making such ROM a reality.

Those are known bugs and since this is a port it's bound to have bugs. With time hopefully these bugs will be fixed and this rom will become even better..
