Is the phone rooted/recovery able?
is there any stock roms worth mentioning? Thinking about battery + stability and ofcourse performance.
I heard OMEGA was a good rom, but it's been a while since i had a samsung device, so any info you have would be great! And if i should look into other roms aswell that you think is intresting(not best).
Hoping for some real good answers! Thank You.
I hope you're informed that whatever you do, you will trip KNOX. KNOX is your warranty, and is irreversible.
Once you passed that dilemma, you should try temasek's CM11 for AOSP. Very good for battery life.
It is recovery-able, provided you know that you will be tripping KNOX.
Stock ROMs? Use the latest 4.4.2 KitKat pre-rooted. Stock meaning on Samsung firmware but is a custom ROM, give X-Note a try, if you're ready for updates every few weeks. Also try Omega or Echoe. But the majority of the community is currently lingering around X-Note as it is the most bloated in awesome tweaks, gets all the updates, all features you'd expect and much more.
Everything I said are for the N9005, so if you have the Exynos version, these ROMs won't work, you will need to use Exynos ROMs such as Criskelo or TR-ROM.
