Like usual, it would be good for me, after installed the rom, to fill your data in the following ONLINE worksheet : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...ndVVXowamVvNFE THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COLLABORATION..



MIDNOTE2.1 SECTION
Ladies (uh, where?) and Gentlemen (uh, HOW many!!), please forget all the "2.0" rules of installation, this is a FULL WIPE version and starting base MUST BE GINGERBREAD WITH FULL ROOT.

LET'S START.....a little longer procedure than usual, but (IMHO) worth it--
1. Download and flash with cwm the modem : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...MHRDRktMWmU2dw (if you have already LB2 modem, go to step 2)
2. Download base rom : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...VG45YU1TR04zUQ
3. Download kernel : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...RVUwVUNIYndQZw
4. Download gapps7.1 : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...EwNDY1ZDFkY2Zl (don't complain if you use another gapps version and your calendar sync doesn't works)
5. Download MULTI-CSC : LINK REMOVED - it causes the loss of root permissions (use only for samsung keyboard "null null" issue)
6. Do a nandroid backup of your actual situation (People actually on ICS rom, MIDNOTE2.0 included, must flash abyss3.9 kernel (https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...RmM2RmMmEwM2Zh), reboot kernel and go back to Gingerbread, like said before, because (I repeat) STARTING BASE MUST BE GINGERBREAD WITH FULL ROOT
7. Open mobile Odin and select "open file", then select "step 2" tar file. Now select "kernel", then select "step 3" tar file, verify that ALL (enable everoot, inject superuser, inject mobile Odin) are checked, then check also "wipe data and cache". Now press "flash firmware" and answer "yes" on md5 verify.....(Odin PC causes increase of the counter, and I'm not directly experienced a flash with it, so please, don't complain on the forum if you don't want to use mobile Odin)
8. After the flash, you will be in CWM recovery, do a reboot, then wait some minutes to build the caches, ONLY FIRST TIME you will see statusbar only. Now long press power button, then select "reboot" and WAIT TILL YOU WILL BE AGAIN IN FULL WORKING SYSTEM
9. You're not yet on MIDNOTE2.1, now you have to download the real customization zip from here : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzR...UU8zQUZ4dmZFUQ VERY IMPORTANT STEP : VERIFY IF mobile Odin obtain correctly root permission
10. Reboot in CWM recovery, then flash gapps7.1 (step 4 zip file), reboot and configure your google account using chinese keyboard
11. Now verify MD5 of "step 9" zip file : b442d6e1f809ffad9ebf0475e2a93ed1. Only if correct, reboot again in CWM recovery and flash it
12. Now you are in MIDNOTE2.1 read below my recommendations :

- Use apex launcher (embedded in 2.1 rom), best ICS experience
- Use App Quarantine (in the app drawer), to easily freeze all the apps that you don't need (chinese or samsung), I preferred to leave the complete rom because there are many Chinese users that use MIDNOTE..
- Make a home shortcut to "quick settings", and use it to set "sound + vibrate", verify if it works correctly, then from now on you will not miss notifications..
- You will find "note everything", very nice app to makes all kind of notes
- Use "not call log" (in the app drawer) to fast switch to home after a call
- Use N7player for music (in the app drawer), best app and related widget (for my opinion)
- Use Sygic (free version in app drawer), best ICS compatible navigation program
- You can find also ICS Keyboard, try it, it's a very nice keyboard
- Freeze S-planner if you don't want to see doubled calendar events notifications
- You can use CWM recovery to flash zip files and do nandroid backups, BUT DON'T USE IT TO RESTORE ANY KIND OF BACKUPS (GB OR ICS), OR TO WIPE DATA, IT DOESN'T WORK and causes bootloop and lost of root permissions, so if you need to go back to GB, use redpill recovery from abyss3.9 kernel (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...43&postcount=6). If you need, you CAN restore (from redpill recovery of course) also ICS nandroid backup, but remember, after that, you will not be able to delete files from system directory
- and now.......THE CHANGELOG :

A. fixed random SOD of 2.0 (thanks to LB2 modem)
B. fixed random reboot, but the "tradeoff" is the return of "android apps optimization" every reboot
C. fixed all contacts app various problems
D. fixed lots of full root related problems, now you HAVE full full full root..
E. fixed Samsung keyboard, now it's fully working like GB one (only english language)
F. fixed stock video player with all kind of video formats
G. nice "Armani" fonts
H. fixed stock internet browser, no more "black on black" address bar (but you can find also ICSbrowser+ in app drawer)
I. native call recording using stock dialer
L. real ICS themed, with more readable icons and no "double arrows"
M. torch widget works fine with three steps
.
.
Z. still works in progress for "Google locations" and battery % in display settings, on my Note I have it perfectly working (see this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1154), but this morning a member of an Italian forum warned me that not worked for him, so I decided to publish the ROM with the settings "unmodified". I need more testing time for it... (Thanks to "lukemo" of Telefonino.net forum for the advise)

VERY IMPORTANT ADVISE : as usual, I don't want donations, but this morning I decided to devote MIDNOTE2.1 hard work to my parents ("B&G" are the initials of their names), both died of cancer, so.........if you want to give a donation, please follow this link : https://www.airc.it/aiutare-la-ricer...one-online.asp

Like usual, it would be good for me, after installed the rom, to fill your data in the following ONLINE worksheet : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...ndVVXowamVvNFE THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COLLABORATION..

Thankyou maxicet for your excellent work!!!
Installed it a few hours ago and so far all is working.
Fastest and solide ROM for daily use for me.
Only the theme is a bit low contrast, many of input boxes are barelly visible.
Please, disable WiFi if want to use GPS.
CoPilot crashes if WiFi is enabled.
For me the fastest ROM for now, only light bugs and i hope our great dev will eliminate it soon.
Contacts need a bit more work, the displayed name is wrong on call, thats only bug.
Thakyou for the "Italian quality" ROM its really the best now.
