chasmodo is the beta for this and will be answering most of the qns here.

Flashing instructions are described in the website, but here is the summary, flash in the following order

1) Device.zip
2) slim gapps ( from downloads/addons)
3) any other addons ( from downloads/addons)

Note: this has the mem fix and the latest blobs from cm10/espen. don't flash another kernel. this has Cm10 kernel compiled from source and fluxxi recovery i am fond of.

Edit 1: on 2.6, for GPS fix.
go to Settings, ota, 2.6 fixes, you should see a GPS fix, d/l it and it should auto reboot to recovery. Flash the file from /sdcard/updateme/cm_fluxi_note.zip. GPS should work. Chas tested it and seems to work for him. I was missing an init.gps.rc in ramdisk.

FAQ


Q: I'm currently running xyz kernel. Can I flash this Rom safely?

A: Go here to find out.
_________________________________________

Q: How do I flash this?

A: This is how.
_________________________________________

Q: After flashing the Rom and Gapps I get bootloop / after changing the DPI I get bootlop?

A: Just press and hold power button. After a reboot or two you'll get to homescreen, no reason to worry.
_________________________________________


Q: Recovery aborts flashing Rom or Gapps or kernel and displays error code "status 7"?

A: You most probably have a bad download. Redownload Rom/Gapps/kernel, check MD5 and try again.
_________________________________________

Q: Flash went through OK, but now I can't sync calendar/contacts/Gmail, there's no option to setup my
Google account, Playstore won't start, where is my Picassa...?

A: You either forgot to flash Gapps, or had a bad Gapps zip (if you had flashed it).
_________________________________________

Q: Playstore says I have no apps, and I purchased them ages ago, or claims that my apps are incompatible
with the Note...?

A: Go here to find the solution to your problems.
_________________________________________

Q: Can I flash some other kernel on this Rom?

A: You can, but if something goes wrong don't post your problems here. Go to the kernel thread instead.
_________________________________________

Q: A system app keeps FCing. What can I do?

A: Go to Settings/apps and clear the app's cache and data, reboot. If that doesn't help, try to dirty reflash the Rom (just wipe cache and dalvik).
_________________________________________

Q: How do I change my DPI?

A: 1) Go to Settings/Developer options/LCD Density, set DPI you prefer and reboot. Or

2) download Rom Toolbox from Playstore, tap build.prop editor, find ro.sf.lcd.density and enter
the value you want. Reboot. Or

3) edit build.prop manually, reboot.

4) DO NOT USE ANY OTHER DPI CHANGING APPS BECAUSE YOUR ROM WILL NOT BOOT.

Note's default DPI is 320; you can go as low as 160 to get more screen real estate. Any DPI between 178
and 320 will leave you in phone mode (status/navigation bar at the top of the screen, no softkeys);
between 160 and 177 you are in tablet mode (softkeys, status/navigation bar at the bottom).

_________________________________________

Q: I have a battery drain, help!

A: Do not post about it in this thread - it is not Rom related. Download and install BetterBatteryStats and go here
for instructions and help.

_________________________________________

Q: Do I need to flash Gapps every time there's a Slim Bean Rom update?

A: No. Here's why.

Code:
Backup tool incorporated, Read Carefully -> Huge Thanks to gmillz
 ( only guaranteed to work on our gapps and addons, 
if you flash another gapps etc you are on your own), similar to CM. for 2.7, MUST RE-DOWNLOAD 
slim_gapps and all addons you use. When 2.7 is released, do the following
Flash Device 2.7.0.zip, then flash the NEW slim_gapps and any other addon you use/want. 
From the next release on, wipe cache/dalvik cache, Just flash device zip, rest should remain intact.
NOTE: If you for a format /system in recovery, you will lose all backups and have to reflash all 
addons again.

_________________________________________

Q: Where are S-pen gestures and S-apps?

A: They require TouchWiz framework to work, so you will not find them here. There are alternatives to
S-apps in Playstore, but S-gestures can be found only in TW-based Roms.

Was going through the changelog.. saw a feature Fast Charge Toggle..
Can you list a couple of kernel where this is supported.. (I guess its kernel dependent)

Right now, i doubt any custom kernels work unless they were quick to incorporate the new mali changes from cm10.

You cannot use any kernel besides the one included in the Rom for now; it's the same situation as with the latest CM10 nightly and mali merges.
