Read the Public Service Announcement several times before you try to flash anything! A bug that can brick your beloved Note to the level that's beyond repair is affecting almost all 4.0 roms. All custom 4.0 roms except the offical CM9 & custom roms based on CM9 are affected.

2012/09/23 ThaiDai: No Updates from 1st Sep 2012 anymore by me. Switching from forum to wiki isn't something people like to do. So there's nearly no interest or response from forum members. If somebody wants to continue this work: please do it.
