GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

Despite having past issues with Exynos processors, the CyanogenMod team has already released the first CM10 nightly for the international version of the Galaxy Note II. This is, of course, brings stock Android 4.1.2 to the oversized handset.


Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

If you plan on giving this a shot, don't forget to grab the appropriate GApps package, too. Otherwise, you'll be running around with a Google-less phone. How embarrassing.

    The only issue with CM on the Note is stylus support. Unless they fixed that...

      Yeah, that's why I am using Nova Launcher. Though I would love CM or paranoid on this phone, the Spen is necessary for me.

        Ambi the only person in the world that bought the note 2 just for screen size? I havent had my stylus out in a week now. Haha cant wait to have something like CM on this thing.

          No. I didn't realize there was a stylus until I got home with mine. I seriously only heard about it a few days earlier at work. I thought I was getting a Galaxy S III with a quad core and more screen. It's cool, but CM10 sounds soooooo much cooler =D

      It'd be killer if Cyanogen added stylus support and features similar to what Samsung offers with their S-Pen. If they did that, I would dump TouchWiz on the Note II. I still am planning on experimenting with AOSP regardless, just probably not as much as I would with a more conventional Android phone.

    Excuse my ignorance but what are the benifits of this rom. I flashed my SGSI with ics333 and was amazed at the speed improvements but surely this new Note can't be much better?

    • sketaful

      Batterylife for one thing. Speed can always be improved as well. But I'll leave this be. I used CM on my Galaxy S2 and it was like a new phone, but this, well this is a new phone right now. :P

    This is the international version, right? So GSM only? Will this cyanogenmod ROM be able to flash to the Sprint version?
