Digiblur rom is a good basic start. Mc2 is not 4.3 though. Any roms that say mk4 are 4.3. Oh, and wrong location to ask questions.

digiblur and smoothest are the only 2 I have tried for touchwiz, and they both work great

I understand what your going through. The Note 2 page is so confusing with all the different variants out there. It would be nice if they were broken down to folders for each one 4.2 4.3 4.4 and so on.

I too am looking for advice on what ROM to use. I've tried a few and they've all had broken crap... like obviously broken crap that should have been in the OP and used to be back in the day. Would have saved me some time if I knew beforehand. Things like Wifi, GPS, OpenVPN....

Negativity aside, I'm looking for:
* a daily driver ROM - good performance good battery life, but stability most importantly
* where all the radios work right out of the gate, or with a single easy to implement fix that works 300% of the time that's no later than the 2nd or 3rd message in the ROM thread
* I want to use the Pen, so I think that means it has to be a touch whiz ROM, right?
* VPN to work, specifically, OpenVPN. Seems that I might be better off sticking to Android 4.1 or older for this, to bypass the VPNService API I have been researching all day today
* Bloat removed, or removeable

I really like this one: but I can't get OpenVPN working or any concrete info on what's going on or how to fix it, so I think I'm going to have to find a new ROM.

I installed Whompasaurus yesterday, that seems to be a favorite here, I might try it for more than a few hours, or try Jelly Bomb or the Swamp monster by team Venum

I like the look of this one but I'm pretty sure it will have the same VPN problem since it's based ont he same ROM I'm using now.
Why am I stating the obvious? b/c back in the day, The Internets were full of answers. Nowadays, they are full of questions. Please, take the time to do like I am doing here and make sure to "seed" the information back there in an intelligible & detailed manner so that the next guy doesn't have to spend a day & a half researching how to re-engineer the wheel.

Smooth ROM is the best Rom for the Note 2

Sorry guys, comparison threads are not allowed on XDA. If you want to find a ROM please take the time to read the OP and user comments in the threads. If it looks interesting give it a shot. If you don't like it try another.
