A little feedback...
A friend brought a bricked Note 2 to me and wanted me to resurrect it. I found a recommendation for this ROM as a more recent but stable option and set about trying to flash it. It looked like a great debloated option and i would have wanted to try it if nothing else than for the Conch Republic edition bit (living in Miami myself). The problem i encountered was this error:
format() expects 5 args, got 3
The recovery on the phone was philz_touch_6.something_much_newer_than_07, and from reading it seemed that the error was due to using an older ROM on a much newer recovery. I tried flashing the version of philz you provide, but it complained about my device being a g3 or something (which it isn't, it's a T-mo 889).
Without a working usb port to use odin or any of the methods i'm familiar with in android tools and no experience with Samsung devices (mine have all been Nokia or HTC), i just went and found another ROM and tried it (JediMaster X2) and it worked.
So i'm not sure if the format() args is something to be fixed/updated or if someone just installed a ridiculously new recovery on an ancient phone, but there you go.
