Announcement from Bubbajoe40356: Official AllianceROM for N900A

The Alliance Team is proud to present AllianceROM for the AT&T Note 3. This is the most customizeable ROM available for ANY device. Millions of different on the fly theming options, more so than any AOSP based ROM. If you are tired of having to choose an xposed module and reboot only to see the effect isn't quite what you like, then I challenge you to try this.

The Possibilities Are Endless...

Integrated Safestrap into Alliance Settings app. It will no longer take up space in the launcher, just use the ROM Control app to open it from now on.
Added a meet the Alliance Team in ROM Control, check us out. We're a bunch of pretty cool fellas...
Also added a little something special for those who look for it :)
There's probably more, but that is all I can remember off the top of my head

Cleaned up some code to make it leaner and faster
Added Back N Theme Support (Now you can set up your ROM however you want to and back up the settings. Then when you flash a new rom, you can restore these to save time!)
Back N Theme was not made for the Note 3, were working on resizing the app, bear with us please, but Since we have these fancy little pens, they do come in quite handy to use the app. Its well worth it

Anyone else that I missed
I do this because I love doing this, not because I am trying to make money. I have a career in the petroleum industry, this is just a hobby. There has been many countless hours put into this project by more people than just me. This being said, I will NEVER ask for a donation, but they are always appreciated. If you like this project and would like to contribute in a different way, I always need testers. Also, clicking the thanks button works just as well

New install instructions:

1) Download ROM zip and verify MD5 sum, place on your internal or external SDCard, it doesn't matter which.
2) Make any backups you need with Titanium Backup or whatever you use while this is downloading
3) Also make sure that you are on latest JB SafeStrap (version 3.71)
4) Boot into Safestrap Recovery via app or hard reboot
5) While in Safestrap first choose "Boot Options" And Then Select "Stock ROM". Activate it. If you are already on the Stock ROM Slot and it is activated AND YOU HAVE A BACKUP, or if you ALREADY have a stock backup move on to Step 7.
6) Click the back button on the bottom right to get back to the main screen, and then choose "Backup". You will want to make sure all 3 partitions are selected to backup. You can choose internal or external sdcards (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING THE EXTERNAL) by clicking Where it says "Storage: xxx SDCard (xxxx MB)" towards the middle of the screen. Choose where you want to create the nandroid (backup) and select "OK." Now just swipe to make the backup. Once the nandroid is done continue on to step 7.
7) Back out to the main screen using the back button in the lower right corner of the screen. The letters at the top should be in red and say "ROM Slot: stock"
8) Now choose "Wipe" and it should pop up the wipe screen. It should say "Factory Reset" and on the next line "Wipes Data, Cache, and Dalvik (not including internal storage). If it doesn't, hit the back button, if it takes you back to the main screen, go back to "Wipe" until you see this message. Now just swipe to Factory Reset.
9) Now you should have a clean stock partition that is ready to have your ROM flashed. Hit the back button until you are back at the main screen, and now you will choose "Install."
10) Now find the ROM zip, you placed on your phone, either on internal or external SDCard and install the ROM. Once the ROM is flashed, you should reboot the device.
Now that you have made a backup, if for whatever reason you want to go back to that ROM on the stock slot, you can boot back into recovery, and choose the "Restore" button and restore the backup to the Stock slot.

If you feel like donating to your local Alliance developer but don't have a good way to do it, or would like an alternative...
If you're not already signed up to use this link
you will get a standard 15GB account, plus a bonus 5GB for free. Plus its a great way to help out if you ever get tired of smacking that "Thanks" button . This will cost you nothing but a couple of minutes of your time, and you get free storage!

Thank you very much to these people who have donated. Words cannot express how awesome these people are. Thank you kindly...

and someone else... If this someone else is you let me know and i will add your name here. I'm sorry I forgot.

You can make this feel however you want! There is even an option to have the ROM choose a random color everyday when you wake up. The ammount of customization is incredible, and I am sure you wont be disappointed.
There will be future themes that will be available in the ROM Customizer, but since I am so new to Alliance, I dont have anything there
DevHost is being weird right now, I tried uploading it and it stopped at 98%, so I am now uploading to my AFH account, bout 10 minutes

Dude!!! Awesome. No hurry/worries. I've mentioned it somewhere here in the note 3 threads. Alliance project has always been my favorite ROM ever since I've known android and rooting. Take your time on the customizations. I'm sure you'll kick it in the butt soon. Thank you so much for bringing it to our note 3. Waiting patiently for the link.
BTW, I will be first to download
