Introducing Sweet ROM, a little side project of mine. I have cooked a few ROMS for the Galaxy Note 1 & 2 and the Sweet ROM series is my first on XDA. I liked it and just wanted to share. This ROM works well for me and should for you.

Those of you that know my Sweet ROM's from Note 1 will know I generally build a full ROM. I like to keep all the Samsung apps etc in. Users can delete what they want to lighten the ROM if they wish and know what they are doing.

ENJOY


Sweet ROM V22 N9005

NOTES

  • Bugs - I have found changing ringtones with Media Storage produces error. I have therefore included all the ringtones, notification tones etc in sdcard. To change ringtones etc do it the normal way but use the ES File Explorer option and navigate to /storage/emulated/0/Audiotones then the folder you need eg. Ringtones. This way works fine. I haven’t had ime to look at it but will when I get a chance.
