First, I am not trying to take credit for this Rom in any kind of way,it is just the smoothest Rom that I have been able to run on my phone, and I would like to share it.
Credit goes where credit is due, so the people that made this possible are tamirda and dr. ketan for this mod http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2537186 and Lorjay and {Team Rejects} for the stock 4.3 base found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2541395, and always chainfire for root

This Rom has everything, wifi hotspot, usb tethering built in
Air Commands, though some don't work because they don't have the sensors
Note 3 apps, and wallpapers, and Pen tools, to help keep you from losing your stylus and some really cool graphics when you use your stylus to unlock the screen.
Really cool features like safety assistance
I mean it has everything
I'm not a developer, this is my first time creating a thread, but this Rom is so awesome and smooth, that I just had to, I am not trying to step on anyone's toes or make anyone mad, but I did put a lot of work into getting this thing to work the way it does, I hope everyone likes it as much as I do, I have been running this for a week now without one problem..

Tapped on link...instantly started to download.
Does this need to have mms fixed due to it having the note 3 features?
Congrats on the ROM by the way!
Will flash after dl and give it a test.
Will let you know of any bugs if found.

OK guys... flashed and been playing with this a few...
My personal thoughts...
Have to flash Air command icon fix
No biggie...
Mms works, tried to and fro and works.
Wifi works because I updated my Google crap thru Wifi.
Air Command works after fix...before that just text on screen.
Other than that still running this ROM and working on bugs. Just to let you guys know.

I haven't had any mms issues with this, I had some issues when I first installed an earlier version, but I changed some files in the framework, and like I said, this has been my daily driver for 4 or 5 days without any issues at all...i waited until I think i got it perfect before i created this thread, I uploaded about ten versions, but this is the one that works with no issues at all, i did when I flashed this over another rom, but then did a full data wipe and installed it and havent had one issue since....

usarmyaircav, I just uploaded it to my website because its paid for and shouldn't have any limits on downloads, it shouldn't have any, but let me know

I think air command stuff was in the framework that i had to remove in order for other stuff to work right, but since then I changed a couple other things like SystemUI.apk, because a few things kept crashing, maybe that was the problem and I can put the air command back in. I guess I was just happy that it went so long without any errors.


For everyone having troubles downloading, I wish I knew of a better place to post it, or how to share it as a torrent, that is always the fastest way to download I've been told. I'm checking into other ways to post it.

I have been trying to get Air Gestures to work to no avail, it just wont boot with those framework files at all

There is a really cool ink effect on the lock screen, when you touch the stylus to the lock screen, and you can change ink colors in settings

    So here are the plans.

    Release one -- Smoothest Note 2/3 1.4-tester
    reverted phone, mms, launcher to Note 2
    fixed -- S-voice, smart clip
    reverted back to pure stock (widgets, apks, and air command)
    few tweaks added
    moved over 600 MB of apks to /data/app (user can uninstall)
    sony walkman software
    LG G2 Keyboard (with themes, handwriting, one had keyboard, 5th row numbers, imoji)
    plus few other extras
    This release should be ready hopefully in the next few days - a week

    Release two -- Smoothest Note 2/3 S5 1.4-tester
    All same fixes and adds as release one
    Has S5 launcher, weather, and transparent flashbar (multi-window bar)
    transparent apks and widgets (will list later)
    Working on custom framework, systemui, and settings to look more like S5
    More to come...
    This release will take a bit longer due to all the custom work but I will put out a little teaser from time to time.
    9
    As they say there is no such thing as a stupid question...but will our S-Pens still have work with the Release 2 option if you're going to base it off of the S5? Or will there be limited to use, etc?

    Thanks,
    Coz

    To clear this up both roms are note 4.3 based roms with note 3 features. The S5 version is not based off the S5 (which is 4.4 not 4.3). It will have the S5 launcher and weather widget which has been modified to run on 4.3. Then the rom will be themed to look like stockish S5 rom with note 3 features (lol!)


    Now here is a link to smothest 1.4 N2-N3 tester. Will post a full change log later the preview stats listed the major things.

    Well I been away for a bit and thought I would pick this project back up. I know smartclip and pagebuddy were issues and now have those fixed. Thinking about putting in the S5 launcher and a few other mods. I will also do a bloat free with flashable bloat zip.

    And yes I will be removing all the aosp I had in the last tester. Oh and yes it will still have the note 3 features.
