[ROM][LINARO][18/05/13][4.2.2]-SentinelROM v4.50-CM10.1 Source-Fast, Stable, Battery
Welcome to SentinelROM for Samsung Galaxy Note II (International Version - N7100). Compiled with Linaro toolchain from modded CM10.1 source. Android 4.2.2.
This is one of the most popular ROMs for Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Nexus 4 and HTC One X and Galaxy SIII, and now after further optimisation, I'm happy to release it for the Samsung Galaxy Note II - N7100.
We have a rapidly growing community of SentinelROM users on our Facebook Page
, and it's a great way to stay up to date with the latest news, beta tests and share with the community, so check it out.
This ROM is compiled from CyanogenMod 10.1 with all the features you get in a CM10.1 ROM, plus the following features.
- Compiled with Linaro toolchain for extreme performance.
- Increased notifications volume.
- Zip Aligned
- LMT Pie Controls - developed in collaboration with noname81
- Compiled from latest CyanogenMod 10.1 source by me, not a 'cooked ROM'.
- OTA Updates supported
- Improved Web Browsing performance
- Improved 3D gaming performance
- Amazing battery life
- Additional theming and UI customisation
- FAST support via this page and our Facebook Page
- A free copy of my music player app
This ROM has been built to enhance the CyanogenMod 10.1 experience
, with faster gaming and web browsing performance (no choppyness in Chrome too!) and best of all, extreme battery life.
Countless hours have been spent making tweaks to settings to squeeze the most performance I can find out of this ROM while still providing excellent battery life and without the dangers of overclocking and kernel level tweaking.
I compile this ROM and Kernel from the latest CyanogenMod source code, add my various tweaks and adjustments, then test for stability, so you get all the benefits of CyanogenMod 10.1, plus my tweaks and extras, all without the instability and inconvenience of flashing CyanogenMod nightlies (which are not designed specifically for the Note II like my ROM is.
A small number of people are experiencing issues with the camera in v4.40. This appears to be due to two different system level firmwares which are available for this device. One is supported, the other is not.
If you are having problems, try flashing a custom kernel. This has proven to fix the issue for most people.
If installing for the first time:
To install this ROM you will need to have an unlocked bootloader and a custom Recovery such as TWRP or ClockWorkMod installed (personally I recommend TWRP, I have had issues with restoring backups using CWM).
- Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
- Boot into your custom recovery
- Back up your stock ROM
- Enter custom recovery
- Factory Reset and wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
- Wipe System Partition
- Install the ROM
- Install GAPPS package
- Reboot - First boot may take 5 minutes
After installation you will be asked if you want to turn on CyanogenMod Statistics, please leave it off as this is an unofficial/modified build.
Note: If you are coming from another ROM and have root access, you can back up your user apps and data using Titanium and restore them once you have flashed my ROM. Just be sure to only restore user apps and data, and no system ones as you may break things.
If updating via OTA:
You should be automatically notified when a new version of SentinelROM becomes available. You can then download it and flash it right from the included OTA Updater app included in the ROM. No need to boot into recovery! Check the changelog for specific instructions. NOTE: You may find you need to re-install your GAPPS package after the update.
You may flash other kernels as you wish via recovery. Remember to also flash the correct libraries for any 3rd party kernels. Instructions will be given by the Kernel author. NOTE: Updating the ROM via OTA will also overwrite any custom Kernels you have installed.
The following mods are developed by 3rd parties and have been tested by SentinelROM Users.
I can not offer support for these mods, or comment on their affect on performance or battery life. Use at your own risk.
