I did it once, thought that might be the problem and tried to re-install without swiping to re-root. No difference. I ended up trying several solutions from re-installation without wiping anything, wiping just cache and Dalvik, etc. etc. I ended up trying to wipe everything including formatting the internal SD card but still no success. Figured after numerous tries it just wasn't meant to happen. I then tried to install Jett 3.0 and found again couldn't get by the logo screen. Tried one other ROM and still had the problem so I figured I had basically screwed something up. I was able to restore a 4.4.2 backup I had but seemed to be having some small problems that hadn't occurred previously. At that point I also didn't want to think I couldn't install whatever ROM I wanted to so I ended up using ODIN to go back to factory original and going thru the whole process of re-rooting and now back to having the Jett 3.0 ROM working.

I so wanted to give SkyNote Air a try since it looks interesting but I really don't want to have to go thru the entire process of restoring and re-rooting again. Were there specific steps or instructions I might have missed in the original install? I had been on a 4.4 ROM before trying SkyNote and basically did everything except formatting the internal SD. Any suggestions appreciated.
Hey man I'm having the same issue that you mentioned I even downloaded the new twrp and used phil and it still won't go past the Verizon screen any luck on your end

Not sure I'm going to be of any help given how far back I had this issue (I think the original post was the beginning of March). I do know that I was eventually able to successfully flash the Skynote 2.51 ROM and have pretty much full functionality but that was also a while ago and I've flashed numerous ROMs since then. I'm thinking that my problem was just a one-off "burp" of sorts that hosed something that caused all the problems. There have been several times where I've actually ended up needing to use Odin to restore my Note 2 back to early stock and then go thru the re-root and all process. I guess I pretty much figure that if you flash enough ROMs, something is going to screw up at some point and I think I've tried almost every ROM out there.

Sorry I don't have more details -

Question how to get GSM to work?

How can I activate the GSM radios (HSPA+ and WCDMA) on this ROM?

I just landed in Taipei and put a local prepaid SIM in and the only options I have under 'Network Mode' are 'LTE / CDMA' (which actuallly displays "CDMA/LTE/EVDO" on the 'Mobile Networks' screen) and 'CDMA'
Is GSM diasbled in this ROM? I realized I should have checked when I first flashed it, since GSM is a requirement for me when I travel.

Thanks in advance.


Also,
Thank you for the great ROM! This is just as functional, and I think a bit faster than the Tweaked VZX Remix i've been using for over a year.
The only problems I've had so far are occasional FC in the Note3 camera app, so I use the Note 2 one and only use Note3 for photosphere.

Thumbs up How to use GSM/WCDMA with this ROM

[QUOTE=ornwilson;53499043]How can I activate the GSM radios (HSPA+ and WCDMA) on this ROM? QUOTE]

I answered my own question by mucking around:
  1. Install the 'ServiceMode Shortcut' app
  2. select the 'Testing' option
  3. select the 'Device Information' option
  4. scroll down to the 'Set Preferred Network Type' section and choose 'WCDMA preferred'

I had to manually add the correct APN settings and I use 'Offline SIM APN Database' but YMMW.

Repeat to switch back to Verizon, but use Preffered Network Type of 'LTE/CDMA auto (PRL)'

Sorry I could not get the dialer code to work that would allow the switching.

In case anyone on VZW and running SafeStrap RC2.51 WiFi Working Version, here's a faster mirror link to download.
MEGA DOWNLOAD

Cheers.
OMG! This download is faster? wtf? Yeah the original file i attempted to download.... Most..painful...download...ever.. I think i've had better speeds downloading from sammobile.

Why don't people just up these ridiculously large files as torrents?

Anyway.. Thanks for the ROM! When i wake up tomorrow, I'll flash it
