Wink [Noobs Guide] How to get "DN3 (Ditto Note 3)" ROM working in Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Hi Everyone,

Quote:
I just now finished installing the ROM successfully so i thought i would atleast make this small tutorial for others, thinking it might be helping them. You wouldn't believe me. I haven't slept the whole night (9hrz without gap) to get this ROM working in my note 2.

Now, a few things about my phone. Trust me, you will require this info because you will then understand what your phone and my phone is. So you could have a clear idea on how to start or where to start.
Quote:
Phone : Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100
Android Version : 4.1.1 (Its the same version that i had since the time i bought the phone, i didn't update or anything.)
Rooted : NO
Recovery : STOCK
Firmware: Indian firmware (sorry, i don't remember the firmware name)



Now, prerequisites...!
Quote:
◘ A Samsung Galaxy Note II with definite 70% and above battery if you are a beginner.
◘ The data cable that is actually working when connected between phone & laptop.
◘ An external SD card with a minimum of 4 GB storage so that you can place the ROM to flash it through Recovery.
◘ DN3 (Ditto Note 3) ROM from E-team (Electron Team) downloaded & kept ready in your computer, because it's about 1.48 GB size.
[Important: See that the ROM is downloaded without any breaks. Check whether it is the "Download Success" or "Download Fail" in the Download Manager. If the ROM is not successfully downloaded & you continue to flash it into your Note 2. Then you are going to feel very bad (Trust me). So check it & only then be ready to start.]
Procedure...!

Quote:
First : Rooting
follow this ----> http://beginnerguides.net/root/samsung-galaxy-note-2
rooting related files in the Root.rar


Quote:
Second : EFS backup
follow this -----> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2255943
EFS backup files in the EFS.rar
Quote:
Third : Flashing the Philz recovery
follow this ----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKfURLDlCRg
Philz recovery file in Recovery.rar
Quote:
Fourth : Taking a Nandroid backup of the present stock ROM.
follow this -----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWbGzUHqOzI
in that your procedure is shown inbetween from 1:25 second to 1:56 second, after 1:56 seconds, do the follow what is being shown, slip back to here and do this ----> Just press the "backup" button and then "yes" , it wil take some time and backup your data, after backup completed, "reboot phone". In the sd card folder called "clockwordmod" will be there. This is the folder your backup is made by philz recovery. copy this entire "clockworkmod" folder to your computer. you will need it in the future. Keep it very safe if u have backed up a stock rom and require warrany.
Quote:
Fifth : Flashing the DN3 ROM into your phone.
Follow this -----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWbGzUHqOzI Now see the full video in the link, do, exactly as he does, but at one point where u will see a selection of modem's (03:32 seconds). If you are from india, select mk4 rom , if u are other country, select mk9.. and on completion follow on screen steps like you saw in the video. In the video u will see wifi working, but here your wifi wont work, so skip there and come back do the 6th step to solve the wifi issue.
Quote:
Sixth : Flashing the mj5 bootloader for fixing wifi in the Ditto Note 3 ROM
Follow this --->
Open Odin v3.07 from PC, Press PDA tab and select downloaded MJ5 Bootloader
Put device in download mode (Vol dwn + home +power)
Connect device and Flash
MJ5 bootloader file is in
MJ5bootloader.rar

How is the battery drain in this rom? I tired quite a few 4.3 based roms and the battery drain was terrible. So I happily went back to 4.1.2 based rom with perseus kernel minimal ram usage and amazing battery life. So just wanted to know about the battery drain and whether it can be used with the perseus kernel?

answer : Yes, OBLIGATORILY external SD card
I say internal also can be used, but the operating manner then would be little complicated for which you might land up into a CONFUSED situation. So it's much better to do it through a SD card

Or I can place to internal too?
Answer : Yes, you can place ,but i told u right If u want it complicated, you may if you already have an idea about Philz touch recovery & etc, then, step up :P

All custom roms flashed via external SD ?
Answer : You see, most of the people actually try to follow the safe and secure way so they do the flash of ROM's from the External SD card

Now doubts clarified ?
If got any more , just lemme know

Ok, I'm looking to do this myself, I'm on a i317 (at&t lte variant) and have found the ROM for that version. My question is, I was told that it would be "trickier" to flash the custom ROM because I have already updated my phone to 4.3 stock. Now I'm aware that flashing the custom ROM will now void my warranty, that is not my concern, my question is what will make it "trickier?" I was not able to receive a response from the person that said this, and now I'm just trying to gather info before attempting this.

I was under the same impression after I upgraded my N7105T (Australia - Telstra) to 4.3 as well.

The reality is that it is not trickier in the slightest. What did happen for me upon the initial flashing of the ROM from Philz recovery was that I was stuck on the initial boot logo until I pulled out the battery and restarted my phone in Philz recovery again. I then flashed the bootloader, thinking that was why it got stuck. After that, all went just fine after performing the installation/flashing again in Philz recovery. I performed a reboot into recovery after the install was completed, factory reset the handset and all was fine thereafter. I was able to restore my data as well as the majority of my apps. Some needed reinstallation, such as phone banking for obvious reasons but all in all, it was very much the painless process.

I'm really happy with it now. I just recently flashed it with the AGNi kernel as well, which was a nice improvement though I've changed from the zzmove battery profile to zzmove optimised profile to see if I still get any issues with apps slowing down to a grinding halt before needing a reboot of the handset to get it back up to speed again.
