About The ROM
Revision is based on I605VRALJB. Also, it's been specifically designed to be the most stable image to fall back on before or after flashing kernels, recoveries or ROMs. It will put your device into the MOST working condition possible currently. The only more possibly stable image would be the one your device came with and we don't have that.

What is Revision?
Revision is a stepping stone. It puts your device into a relatively stock, and known working condition.

Tweaks
I added the following tweaks to the ROM for usability and hackability.
Carrier Unlocked for AT&T network.
Rooted with ERD Chainfire's SuperSU
Bash
Busybox
i2cdetect, i2cdump, i2cget, i2cset
ipctool
strace
tcmpdump
viewmem
PARAMS: UART Logging Increased
PARAMS: UART Root Prompt at battery charging
PARAMS: UART Shell terminal during normal operations

The PARAMS will be available in a future CASUAL application for testing.

Download Revision3 ROM repacked


Troubleshooting
Windows users: First uninstall PDANET drivers, then install Samsung Kies.


Here's some notes I wanted to record:
Uncompressing a Samsung System image
Code:
./ext4_utils/simg2img ./originalsystem.img ./working.img
Compressing a Samsung Image
Code:
sync; sudo ./ext4_utils/make_ext4fs -s -l 1792M -a ./temp ./system.img /path/to/mounted image
Create a tar.md5.gz file from a set of images..
Code:
tar -H ustar -c boot.img hidden.img modem.bin param.bin recovery.img system.img tz.img sboot.bin>./Revision1.tar;sync  md5sum Revision1.tar >> Revision1.tar; mv Revision1.tar Revision1.tar.md5; sync; gzip Revision1.tar.md5 -c -v >Revision1.tar.md5.gz;
the tools are available on the internet.


Revision1: initial release
Revision2: Fixed Baseband issue. The PARAMS were to blame for this. Removed features to add functionality.
Revision3: Carrier Unlock for AT&T.. needs more work to get rid of Verizon warning. Thanks Joder for the APN info.
Revision3 repacked: apparently there was an issue with the uploaded Revision3. Repacked is a properly repackaged version of Revision3.

Thanks Adam for all your hard work. You and Beans are the first devs I ever donated to, and you wont be the last. I really appreciate the all the hard work devs put into this.

So what's the next step? Does this help you understand the bootloader?

    Guys, will you please stop arguing.. I screwed up. I don't have service with Verizon to test. I'll see what I need to fix and fix it tonight. There will be a Revision2 ROM. It may be the PARAMS.. but I don't know for sure. I will see what it takes to get the baseband back.

    Now that this crazy rollercoaster ride is over, what's next in the pipeline? Seems we have some solid backup plans in case phones get borked. How do we(really you) attack the bootloader?

    The plans are laid out, executed, and now the task is making things safe. Ralekdev and myself put a special ethical interest in this. It may or may not require a slight hardware modification. I won't say anything about this until Wednesday morning. Come hell or high water, bootloaders will be unlocked Wednessday morning and you can watch it on XDATV. Personally, I'd rather have Samsung leak an unlocked bootloader because this is too powerful.

    Revision3 is now available. It includes Carrier Unlock for use with AT&T. I'm now using this as an AT&T device :)

    Guys this isn't a rom like you think it is, I think this was created as a plan b if you borked your device while flashing something. ( I think that's what interpreted from the op)

    Sent from my rooted galaxy note 2... U mad?
    That was Revision1. It was just enough to get my device running again for use as a stepping-stone. Revision2&3 include usability tweaks.

    However, Revision3 WILL NOT be as badass as other ROMs on this forum. It's just something your average modder will want to keep around as a Baseline flashing package. It establishes a baseline with things you will need to jump out of Verizon Stock.
