hello,

it's been a long time since this thread was last updated, as well as the addon

now, after thousands of hours' hard work, especially by @rasido and his testers around the world who speaks different languages, we finally arrived at a stage to release the new addon for turning a custom N7100 ROM into our Note II LTE's (including N7105/E250K/E250L/E250S) within seconds


** FOR PREVIOUS ADDON 1.1 for DN4 N7105 please goto post #3



ABOUT:
- makes it possible to run any N7100 custom TW ROMs on your Note II LTE (cm/aosp not supported)
EDIT: miui (samsung based) is supported (please read below)
- fixes no signal/data network/gps and other problems in one single addon patch
- installs/reinstalls CSC files



FEATURES:
- adds/replaces the required system files for the LTE model
- replaces with updated mali drivers required by some 4.x.x kernel for some custom ROMs (thanks @psndna88)
- installs CSC files from a huge CSC list for 136 regions/areas/countries/carriers



INSTALLATION:
- install a N7100 rom of you choice and DO NOT REBOOT or otherwise it may bootloop (reboot into recovery again in this case)
- install the addon (in zip format) in the recovery
- choose the desire option for the below actions (all optional):
1/. to patch the system files for the LTE models
2/. to install the updated mali drivers
3/. to install a CSC of your choice (pick the most appropriate one from the list for kitkat/jellybean)
- you will need to install a proper Note II LTE kernel and/or modem for your device, there is NO KERNEL/MODEM INCLUDED in this addon
- reboot and enjoy



NOTE:
- if you see a blank screen only after reboot (no samsung logo and no boot animation), you probably need to select (check) to install the updated mali drivers (not selected by default). just re-run the installer and choose yes in the update Mali drivers page


Notes for E250x models:
- it is suggested to get the WIDzard Kernel for TouchWiz by @Strawberry_dev at https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/sunhoKim/Kernel
- and the modified Philz Recovery by @Strawberry_dev also at https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/sunhoKim/Recovery

** as per request by @rasido, many thanks for @Strawberry_dev (homepage)



COMPATIBILITIES:
- tested with all (almost) N7100 TW ROMs available on xda's N7100 development section (for android 4.3 or 4.4.2, may not work for android 4.4.4 ROMs)
- although we have tried to make this addon a generic one, there are chances that this addon may fail to work with some specific ROMs. we cannot guarantee this addon will work for all ROMs nor all carriers around the world

** for miui stock samsung based Note2Lte version, please read this post for how to avoid com.android.phone FC and bring back gps as well as phone calls **




DOWNLOADS (NO MIRROR PLEASE):
- download link 1 - pcloud

** FOR PREVIOUS ADDON 1.1 for DN4 N7105**​




hi all

a long story but i will keep it short

i finally made the DN4 (android 4.4.4), originally created by the eteam for N7100, to work on our Note 2 LTE. this is only an addon patch that allows you to make phone calls, surf the internet, etc as we used to be with our note 2 lte but now a bit different - we can do that with DN4!

i am glad that i can share this to all 7105 users finally. Enjoy!





ANNOUNCEMENT:

please read the announcements or important information about the current status of this addon before installing. thank you





DISCLAIMER:

  • THIS IS NOT a standalone port or mod, nor a complete rom but REQUIRES DN4 installation pack from the eteam

  • this addon only serves as an extra patch for having DN4 v2 7105/LTE works on the note 2 lte model with LTE connection and gps but nothing else

  • all materials contained in this addon are subject to the sharing policies laid down by the eteam, thus any reproduction or redistribution is prohibited

  • the inclusion of the kernel, AGNi pureSTOCK N7105, as well as the new mali drivers in this addon is permitted by the original developer psndna88, please consult him before using it for other purposes

  • due to the sharing policies, i can only provide support for what i have shared. please visit eteam or psndna88's thread for other suppports

  • i cannot make any other modifications or additional features which may compromise eteam's sharing policies



NOTE:

  • you need to download DN4 v2 7105 LTE installation files/updates from the eteam's DN4 thread as base files for this addon

  • only tested on my note 2 lte GT-N7105, i cannot guarantee this works for other note 2 lte variants as well and no support will be provided

  • only tested with AGNI pure stock kernel v4.3 (included)

  • since bootloader downgrade is not possible, i have only tested with a 4.4.2 bootloader which i upgraded weeks ago

  • you are probably free to choose a modem of your choice, however, it is suggested to keep your current modem if in doubt



SCREENSHOTS:

device-2015-01-14-025715.png


with addon v1.1 for DN4 v2 7105 LTE installed



WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • a working DN4 with phone call, data network (LTE/GSM, etc) and GPS function properly



WHAT NOT TO EXPECT:

  • modded or ported files from DN4
  • frequent updates
  • fancy installations
  • bugs free experiences
  • problems will be solved quickly/ultimately
  • individual/feature requests (i will listen, but no promise)
  • request/mod that compromise the sharing policies



KNOWN PROBLEMS:

  • calls forwarding status is not checked or shown in the status bar when the phone boots up FIXED in v1.1

  • the signal bar icon in the status bar does not reflect signal strength FIXED in v1.1

  • gps works but no locking FIXED in v1.1

  • ONLY CWM recovery is supported at this time for installing the addon FIXED in v1.0b


    [*] for some users, the gps may not get locked within a reasonable short time (approximately < 1 min for the 1st lock, within a few seconds thereafter without reboot). there are some possible fixes here but i cannot guarantee they are 100% safe. currently, there is NO ULTIMATE fix for this yet

    however, u may try the quick fix below which is safe and relatively easy

    1 backup your efs in recovery
    2 do a data and system nandroid backup of your current dn4
    3 odin flash the system.img or restore a system nandroid backup of a stock rom with working gps
    4 let it boot until u see the setup wizard
    5 reboot into recovery (not stock recovery) and restore the backup at point 1 above




CHANGELOG:

  • 20150114
    - updated to version 1.1 (only OPEN version is available without device check)
    - fixed gps locking issue
    - fixed signal strength icon in status bar
    - based on DN4 v2 7105 LTE

  • 20150104
    - updated version 1.0b
    - for new users or those who failed to install with previous versions
    - fixed problems when installing the addon with some recoveries
    - NO OTHER FIXES in this update (no gps fix, no signal icon fix)
    - now supports both CWM and TWRP (tested with twrp-2.7.1.0-t0lte and twrp-2.8.1.0-t0lte)

  • 20150101
    - OPEN version without device checking
    - exactly the same contents as 1.0a

  • 20141231
    - initial release
    - based on DN4 update5b



INSTALLATION:


for version 1.1x
  • remember to make a backup first

  • I WILL NEVER format your partition or wipe anything for you (except reformat util), please do it yourself if needed

  • download the DN4 v2 7105 LTE installation file, and any other updates if applicable, from eteam's thread, read the instructions/howto provided by eteam before installing

  • install the DN4 v2 7105 LTE installation file, DO NOT REBOOT after the installation is finished

  • install all DN4 v2 7105 LTE update files if any (can be done within the same recovery session), and DO NOT REBOOT your phone yet

  • choose to install the DN4 v2 7105 LTE Addon file, it will patch the system and other necessary files, as well as a 7105 kernel for you

  • once finished, reboot the phone and enjoy

  • NOTE my addon MUST be the LAST ONE to install, or you will have a non completed installation



for version 1.0x

FAQs / MISCONEPTIONS:



  • couldnt find DN4 v2 7105 installation file on eteam's web site
    it's a bit tricky that some menu items are not shown in some pages, try goto their main page and get the links from the menu there at http://electron-team.com/index.html

  • kernel not installed properly from the addon or black (blank) screen after boot
    make sure you have wiped your system and data partition before (excluding /data/media, aka /sdcard)

  • can i unzip the addon and put all the files into the DN4 installation or update zip files?
    it is NOT suggested to extract the addon
    in the addon file there are some scripts for replacing/patching the original files come with DN4 installation and update files
    if you are familiar with the installation script (updater-script) and shell scripts then u can do that if you want to, but make sure you also make all the changes manually that supposed to be done by the scripts
    otherwise, do not do this as this may cause bootloops or situation can get even worse


  • i don like the kernel included in the addon file, can i use other kernels?
    only the included kernel has been tested, while you can use other kernels at your own risks

  • can i install this addon with other variants like at&t, t mobile etc? do you plan to make this addon works with other variants as well?
    initially only global version GT-N7105 is supported officially. other variants like I317 (AT&T and T-Mobile) are reported as compatible as well, while for the rest, there may be compatibility issues and not tested yet. i will try to make it works with other variants but no promise as i don own such devices and thus cant test it myself. however, this addon should be compatible most note 2 lte variants, except verizon atm

  • which bootload should i use? can i stick with the 4.1.2 bootloader?
    only tested with 4.4.2 bootloader. however, users reported 4.1.2 bootloader is working fine too

  • what is OPEN version means? which one should i choose?
    the normal version contains a device model checking which will reject non T0LTE (GT-N7105) for installing for safety purpose, while the OPEN version does not contain such checking
    if your device model is GT-N7105 then choose the normal one if available (without OPEN)
    otherwise if you want to install this addon on a non GT-N7105 device, you should choose the OPEN version. however, since the installation wont check for a valid device model, you may risk flasing a wrong kernel and can cause damages to your phone. so do it at your own risks!




E&OE

Can u explain on how does this work and installation procedure in details... Thanks... Bcoz as far as i know, having to flash n7100 rom on n7105 might risk of having bricked device as the specification of hardware is total difference...

I just want to say I hope EVERYONE who installs dn4 comes to this thread and gives thanks to @ykkfive. He is the one responsible for getting dn4 working for you so he deserves all the credit. I hope everyone understands it's xda rules on selective sharing that have been the issue nothing else.

I'm sure ykkfive can explain in more detail, but from my experience: DN4 doesn't have bootloader or a modem in the ROM, and will flash to your device without risk of brick. I've flashed DN4 myself (AT&T Note II) and it boots and runs perfectly, just no baseband.

The idea of this addon getting DN4 working on LTE has me drooling...

Well, the addon isn't available yet:)

Anyway, flashing Dn4 for n7100 would not brick any N7105, you would just have a working phone with no baseband, but you could simply restore your previous backup (it is strongly recommended to have one!) or flashing a stock rom with odin. Custom rom don't include any bootloader (it would be impossible) and most of them don't come with any modem, so flashing Dn4 for n7100 wouldn't remove your N7105 modem.

Regarding how to flash the addon, if you look at the OP you can see that you must flash the Dn4 rom and, without rebooting, the addon too. It comes with the agni kernel along, so you can use the rom and the addon and have working wifi even if you are on the old 4.1.2 bootloader.

Edit: sorry, cross posting!

no worries, mate. it depends on what u r going to flash or install

I have studied the installation script (updater-script), the partition numbers for system, boot, data, cache are identical, ie both are pointing to the same partition number, unlike s3 3g and lte version. actually it will be better to use the partition names. more, I have included a 7105 kernel to overwrite the 7100 kernel for u guys so that users don have to care about this

of coz I wouldn't take the risk to install it with the zip at the 1st time but install the files myself

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I317 using XDA Free mobile app

Unfortunatelly I have upgraded to 4.4.2 bootloader after the warranty expired a few weeks ago from 4.1.2, so I am not sure if 4.1.2 boot loader is ok or not

I will test it on 4.1.2 bootloader, but I am almost 100% sure it will work flawlessly so as the 4.4.4 touchwiz rom by Sawdoctor does:)

    hi everyone

    great to see it's 200 pages now as well as thousands of downloads and thanks

    unfortunately, looks like it is much closer to an end for this addon now, if not ended


    dont ask me why. but one thing i can tell u is, if i want to keep this alive, no one can stop me for i have not compromised any sharing policies here



    personally, i feel sad. this is the most welcomed thing so far for me about 3 years here, more than my bravia engine released 2 years ago. and we had many helping hands here also, it's great, isnt it?


    i would like to say sorry to you guys that at this point i yet to deliver an ultimate solution for the gps thing, and not being able to do some other changes due to being bounded but i believe @Arsaw had granted me a lot of freedom already though i only used or exercised some parts of it actually

    what's next? any further development? sorry, i dono yet

    and as long as you guys need this, i wont close this thread. but it doesnt mean i wont read or reply to the posts here, and it does not represent it actually ended, yet. let's see what happen
    may be i'll come back and become an active member again soon, or perhaps with updates or some new things, i dono, only god knows


    anyway, thank you so much for your supports, guys. appreciated really :)
