Before asking mods related stuff please check if there is an xposed module active as almost all the time that seems to be problem.
And for people having 4g issues. This thread is for N9005 ,not for any other variants. We still try to help as much as we can. But dont move questions between threads.. if you need help. Pm users like @djbrian52 @Upstreammiami @Ark1406 as they are pretty helpful when it comes to other variants. As for other questions if not answered promptly please eat @Khizar 's brain
Patience beats all and a little knowledge about things too :P

Q."Can I overclock on X-Note Kernel?"
Q."The bootanimation is so flashy, too flashy for my eyes to bear, I'm planning to move on to another ROM if they don't change this!!!"
A. HOLD UP! You can change the boot animation easily by going into the OTA section of X-Note, download the BIOS boot animation and flash it in recovery. OR! You can flash the zip provided by myself (fahadali2315) on the 3rd post below that would get you the default X-Note 7 Boot Animation!
Q."Would I need the Poland firmware to install? Or can I use my locally released KK as a base for flashing X-Note?"
A. If you have KitKat already installed, you will already have the bootloader required to flash X-Note. Hence, all you need to do is get to KitKat using any method
Q."What other kernels should I try?"
A. CivZ's SnapKat Kernel or Wootever's N3 Kernel are quite good. NOTE:
You WILL trip your KNOX if you haven't already.
Q."What is the difference between stock kernel and stock kernel with init.d added?"
A. The init.d is a more advanced user option, where it allows the automatic execution of the scripts contained with /system/etc/init.d folder at each boot. Only select this if you plan to use scripts.
Q."What is this BTU CSC? What would happen if I live in XXXXX and my region is not specified?"
A. CSC means Customer Sales Code, and contains Carrier Settings and information. Installing a BTU CSC on an Australian device would not affect anything. It only gives you extra options.
Q."Why isn't my modem updated after installing the ROM? It's still at NA2!"
A. The ROM does not, and will never have, a modem install option. If you want to install/update a specific modem, you will have to flash it in Odin manually.
KITKAT 4.4 RELATED
Q. I cannot get into Tablet mode ?
A. It is because of the lovely updates from GOOGLE to blame :@
Q."Ongoing notifications are pushed down and temporary notifications are placed on top of the ongoing notifications! What's going on?"
A. This is a new Android 4.4 feature and is not yet changeable. Q."On 4.3 when I swiped down on the notification bar, no matter where I swiped I would be able to pull it down. Now on the latest X-Note, when I swipe close to the right of the screen, the notification bar goes from transparent to dark...why is this?"
A.There is no workaround for this, as this is an official 4.4 feature so that it allows users to view the notification status bar with a solid background instead of intruding what is behind it. It is a visually pleasing feature over functionality.
Q."What is the Kit Kat Addons in Aroma?"
A. They are the CM11 apps that get installed usually when you install a CyanogenMod ROM, they include the AOSP Clock, 8sms and AOSP Calculator apps.
Q. "When I press the volume buttons on the homescreen, I get a volume scrubber with a gear icon. When I click on the gear icon, it enlarges but there used to be more options to scrub for Media, System and Alarm. What happened?"
A. This is due to GravityBox. Make sure you select Media Tweaks -> Expandable Volume Panel -> Fully Expandable Volume Panel and if you want Expand Automatically.Q."What's wrong with Xposed? Whenever I enable a module, nothing happens!"
A. Have you installed the latest version of Xposed and rebooted.Q."The call recorder function only gives me a hissing noise when I playback, what's wrong?"
A. Not Supported in 4.4.2
Q: Why is YouTube force closing as soon as I click on it on my launcher?
A.The latest Youtube as of March 13th conflicts with the Xposed module YouTube AdAway, Disable it in Xposed and it will stop force closing on app start.The latest update in Xposed Installer (1.6) fixes the crash, so make sure you update it
Q. My Playstore shows incompatible phone when i try downloading some apps?
A. Download xposed module Playstore Fixes and set your phones original density(480) to sent to google. Then it will work

Thanks to @Khizar for this find.
Q. Screen Rotation is not working after deleting SamsungHub.apk?
A. Flash this file to fix it .Link Thanks to @Killberty for the link
Q."After flashing the ROM my Wifi and 4G/3G is not very good, what's wrong?"
A. It is not the ROM's fault, this is your Modem. Make sure you installed your region's modem on your phone. Don't go around asking where to get the 'latest' modem, as the latest is not the greatest in all cases. Use the modem you usually believe to be the best. 4.3 modems are not compatible with 4.4 ROMs.
Q.Is this ROM working properly on other variants?
A. It works well on N900W8 and N900T provided that you install the patches required for it to work. There is also an N900A version on the AT&T section.
Q."How do I dirty flash this ROM?"
A. This is generally not recommended, but if you must do it on your own JUST FLASH THE AROMA SETUP AND IT WILL WIPE YOUR SYSTEM AUTOMATICALLY .
Q."Something is wrong with my multiwindow, shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiqktHuVa6A
A. Well, you're a strange one, If you are using Swiftkey, stop using it now. If not, flash the latest ROM and see if it fixed.
Q."My battery is draining heavily! What's going on?"
A. Download BetterBatteryStats from the second post of this thread and look for what is eating your battery and greenify that damn app :P :BBS LINK
Q. What should I do if my NFC/BT/Wifi isn't working?
A. Make sure you have flashed stock, kernel, modem, and everything up to date on the 4.4.2 iterations of the files. If you have anything 4.3, that is likely to cause problems. DO NOT FLASH THE N900W8 NFC/Wifi/BT FIX AS IT WILL NOT HELP. Clear your cache/dalvik cache.
Q."I don't want to trip KNOX when installing X-Note! How should I approach this?"
A. Use this Guidebut there is no definite proof of not tripping KNOX if you know what you're doing.Be sure that you do not install any recovery from Aroma Installer, or else say goodbye to your KNOX Warranty.
IF YOU FOLLOW FLASHING ANY OTHER WAY YOU WILL DEFINATELY TRIP KNOX 0x1
- Samsung Email have big characters when writing a email in some density, recommended to install in aroma AOSP email or use Xposed
- Use Xlarge res (with xposed app settings module) for samsung Video app (com.samsung.everglades.video) at lower densities

Q: Will this new update trip my KNOX when I'm already on the 0x0 leaked Mexican Bootloader?
A: No it will not. No updates will. No kernels will. As the recovery does not write to the Bootloader, your bootloader will always be "happy".
Q. "What other kernels should I try if I'm a Canadian user?"
A. CivZ's SnapKat kernel or Wootever's N3 Kernel (Make sure you select the N900T version)
Q. What should I do if my NFC/BT/Wifi isn't working?
A. Did you flash the NFC/Wifi/BT fix? If yes, make sure you cleared cache and dalvik, as well as Fixing Permissions in CWM/TWRP so that the permissions are cleaned next boot.
