How to revert back to Whomp?

I've updated to 4.3 (first Lorjay's, then Synergy). I'm tired of random reboots, Wifi issues, slow charging.
Is it possible to bring my Note2 back to pre-upgrade?

Where do I start - should I do the "Back to UNROOTED Stock with Auto Flash Count Reset" maneuver, then install from there?
Can I just do a nandroid restore?

Thanks for any help.

Best way IMOP is to Odin back to stock and start over..I find this to more a a stable way, then you won't have to deal with any left over files from 4.3. I went back to Synergy R83 with Persaus kernel and have no issues period.. To me unless 4.3 gets a custom kernel it is not worth the upgrade as the stock kernel sucks big time..

Just make sure you use the "restore sd after downgrade.zip" I had to anyway. Same issue going from 4.3 stock down to 4.2 as if I tried a 4.3 AOSP and back to 4.2 stock.

I get that to, but in you app drawer there is one that works..

For whatever reason, I couldn't get Synergy to be stable. I tried full wipes and different aroma options and kernels. The interface would just freeze up (I could turn the screen off/on, but that's it), making me have to yank the battery a few times.

I'm back to good ol' Whomp, and will stay on this until the next great thing. Thanks for your help guys.

Any updates coming on this ROM? I've been using this ROM since 4.2 came out and it is by far the best 4.2 ROM out there for the Note 2 (sprint)!

Agreed.. awesome ROM. But from reading the posts, the developers moved on to different phones. I held out for as long as I could.. now running CM11.

Just curious, if this rom is even updated anymore? And why is everyone still using it?

It's undeniably one of the most stable and reliable roms for the sprint note 2.

I've used this rom since the beginning. Frankly I was hoping it would get updated, I currently run cm 11, which in my opinion is not as solid as this rom, just newer.

Me too, I've tried other roms and always come back to whomp. However I too am on CM11 and while it's got some small bugs, the 1/10 nightly is better than the 1/5 I was running so it's getting there. The phone is faster.

But if you want a touchwiz rom with Samsung's note features it's hard to beat whomp.
