[SOLVED] Please help - Status 7 when flashing custom ROM on Samsung Galaxy Note N7000
this is my first post on this forum.
I have a common problem when installing custom ROM - particulary Paranoid Android.
Every time I try to flash the ROM I get the same error (the worldwide famous STATUS 7
I admit that I am new to rooting/flashing phones and that I might be doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I've been doing a 3-day long research on the interent and especially this forum but I couldn't find anything that would make it work.
Here is the basic info about my device:
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000
My Android version is 4.1.2
Baseband version N7000XXLT3
Kernel version 3.0.31-1103517 dpi@DELL202 #3 SMP PREEMPT Sat Apr 20 02:25:55 KST 2013
Built numer is JZO54K.N7000XXLT5
Here is a short list of things I've already done in order to solve my problem:
1) My phone is rooted using SuperSU
2) I have installed ROM Manager and downloaded the latest version (188.8.131.52) of ClockWorkmod Recovery
(CWM Recovery) for Samsung Galaxy Note N7000;
I have even tried with older versions of the same Recovery but the problem wasn't solved;
3) I downloaded the Paranoid Android
from links given in this forum. I've tried with several different versions of PA. For instance I've tried ParanoidAndroid 3.10, ParanoidAndroid 3.99, ParanoidAndroid 3.99 RC2 but the results were same;
4) After that I tried to download PA via goo.im
and make shure that I didn't download the wrong version of PA (but that was highly unlikely because there was always a "n7000" part of the name of the ZIP file);
5) I downloaded the Gapps
as well, both via goo.im and via forum links but I didn't even get to the part where I should install the Gapps;
6) I found another possible solution on this forum and that is editing the updater-script
located in META-INF/com/google/android
. I did it in several ways mentioned by different people in the net/forum each time starting from scratch with a fresh download and a untouched updater-scrip (just to make sure that the previous edits wouldn't effect the current edits). And should I even say that this didn't solve my problem?;
) After I read that the issue might be in CWM Recovery I googled for another recovery and I constantly ran into the Team Win Recovery Project
(TWRP) but it seems that there is no version of TWRP for Samsung Galaxy Note N7000;
Now I'm stuck with my stock rom and I would like to try out the benefits of custom ROMs.
If there is anyone who could help me out with this I would be so glad.
If you have any questions about device, software or methods I've alredy tried out (or didn't) please feel free to ask/suggest.
Thank you all in advance!

The problem was solved using PhilZ
. Here is a link to the thread where everything you should know about PhilZ is explained:
I'd like to underline that you have to choose the right kernel according to your built number. In my case it is XXLT5. Just follow the link above - it is all perfectly explained in a few posts.
After that I installed ParanoidAndroid 3.99 and the matching Gapps from:
ParanoidAndroid is just on of many custom ROMs and it is up to you to choose the one that suits you the best. I was just giving a example of what I did.
I hope that this can help some of you and save you time and nerves!
