Hi All
Today i'm about sharing the safest method to Flash ROM's on Galaxy Note


Main problem with EMMC brick that causes hard brick
(your phone will not turn on at all and you will need a $50 JTAG service from MobileTechVideos)
is mainly with “leaked” ICS ROMs. If you have flashed one of those “leaked” ICS ROMs, there’s a chance you can brick.


But to clear things up, your phone doesn’t get bricked unless you try to “wipe data/factory reset” in ClockworkMod Recovery while trying to install a new ROM.


Whenever you are installing or restore ROM using ClockworkMod Recovery , Flash Abyss Gingerbread kernel Download Here

Step 1:
Download and copy over the Abyss kernel zip file to your SD card or internal storage. Again, I always have a copy of Abyss kernel zip file on my SD card I suggest you do too.

Step 2:
Then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together until your phone resets and you get ClockworkMod Recovery.

Step 3:
Choose “install zip from sdcard”.

Step 4:
Choose “choose zip from sdcard” or “choose zip from internal sdcard” depending on where you copied over the Abyss kernel zip file to.

Step 5:
Choose the Abyss kernel zip file and install it.

Step 6:
Once installed, you still have to reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery so go back to main menu and choose “advanced”.

Step 7:
Choose “Reboot Recovery” and this should reboot back you into ClockworkMod Recovery but the one off Abyss kernel.

From here on, you can install new Gingerbread or ICS ROMs without worrying about bricking
Do this Steps Every Time You Want to Flash a ROM be safe

sorry, but r u sure abysskernel 4.2 is the safe kernel to do ?
No offense to abyss developer, but...
I've tried it before, and makes my note brick when do wiping on ICS.
Lucky me, I still able to regain few gigabyte of the space. Otherwise, I will need to spend some more time to go to the customer service of Samsung.

Now, for my device, I feel much better when using speedmod kernel. and for me, speedmod kernel serve me well than abyss.

Can anyone confirm that this method is 100% safe?
I am out of warranty as many of us in the forum here, and can not even try anything that's 90%.

No offense to the OP, But the SAFEST IS STILL PC ODIN. Pc odin is a samsung software not some script written by a developer.

This method might work for those with root and already on custom recoveries. But for those on stock ICS, they would have to first flash CWM.zip touch/temp to have the option to flash abyss. Which has recently been deemed NOT SAFE to use for people on affected stock ICS kernels. The current safest way to flash a kernel is pc odin. Which will give you the triangle. Thanks for the info, but this method might not be safe for all note users.

To use CWM.zip to flash Abyss is the most stupidesterestest thing to do. No wonder the CWM method is deemed NOT safe...

Abyss kernel can be flashed by recovery if you are rooted and have advance recovery only, it won't work on stock recovery.
If you are rooted and have safe kernel, then what is need to have abyss kernel?

Based on my experience, Abyss is needed and 100% safe in case you want to go back from ICS to GB (of course always assuming you are rooted and with CWM).
I had soft brick when trying to revert from ICS to GB (by using the ICS CWM) and then Abyss solved my problem.
