It appears there is a new CM on the way... And it appeared it wasn't available for the Note 2... And that made me disappointed, so I set out to put that right.

4.3 is a small update from 4.2. Unfortunately, Google also decided to change almost everything about filesystem mounting. And Samsung exynos devices are a hotchpotch of everything...

Today, xplodwild and I carried out a war of attrition against the nasty Samsung devices. Firstly, there remains a battle-scar in the form of graphics, where we had to disable the ability of the device to screenshot itself. You'll see this in the lack of thumbnails for your long-press-home task switcher. #Blame-Samsung

Storage was a nightmare, but I have finally beaten it into submission. It should now work. Nicely. And properly. At least for now.

Because open source is wonderful, a VERY messy device tree (commits need squashed etc) - https://github.com/pulser/android_device_samsung_n7100/

I suggest a wipe before flashing, but I have tested from 4.2.2 and should be OK actually, maybe some apps will cry, but that's not my problem

Pretty much everything is working and tested - you shouldn't have any issues getting it to boot. The other version posted appears it may have issues booting, but I was not aware of its existence until just now. Actually, seems there's no link in the other thread, give this a shot, and see if it helps you. There's a lot of issues on Exynos devices when doing any kind of update... Sneeze and it might explode!

Thanks,

Trying now and will report.

BTW (off-topic but... I believe necessary when it comes to AOSP and Exynos) When I click on your githup link the Audio recording fix is on top of the list for 6 months ago, which reminds me; we have never got the chance to see CM 10.1 recording audio properly on videos or sound record apps (not saying it is mono but the sound is terrible actually).. For now it seems the only thing that prevents me (and some others I guess) from using any AOSP ROM as a daily and "fully functional" driver is this problem. Any chance that we can see 10.2 have proper audio recording? Since our voice is recorded just fine on calls we can say the mic is working as it should on both at earspeaker and the loudspeaker. So, there is a software which can use the mics properly and I -with all my heart and never-ending hope- believe this software could be also used for good sounded video recording or help us not to shout too much for Google Now

Thanks for reading. And the ROM

Will try this new one tomorrow... Thanks!

BTW. Is anyone using GoBackup Pro or Titanium Backup? I had an issue on my Nexus 4 running 4.3 .

They didn't restored my Apps. Since the Note 2 uses a SD Card Slot, would it be the same issue?

Awesome. Was pretty sure I had fixed it properly, but always good to check

No issues, my testing process includes restoring from titanium backup, with data, from external SD

This sounds like something more for the guys that did the work on the audio HAL. I've not looked into the solution, but audio on these devices is a dirty hack with tinyhal

Re 4.3 in general
I have been testing 4.3 on an "old" device , my Nexus S, the last couple of days. Interestingly, the device was much smoother than 4.2 based ROMs, at least on that limited processor device.
Once this all gets ironed out is there reason to believe that 4.3 will be better for our Note 2's?

Thanks for your work !
