How to flash:

Nandroid Backup before flash is highly recommended!

  • Load *.zip on your SD/EXT Card
  • Restart in CWMR
  • Be sure you’re on SAFE KERNEL, then you can wipe
  • Full wipe /data/factory reset /cache and dalvik
  • Flash the ROM
  • Wait some minute until your phone boot!

For people who have Unrooted phone and ICS 4.0.4:

I can show an easy way to flash it.

Just download GL_NOTECORE_HYDRACORE_v4-3b_STD.tar

  • Flash it with Odin 1.85, (Click PDA, choose hydracore and press Start)
  • After this you will have Root on your phone. Restart it and check if Hydracore Kernel is correctly installed.
  • Now you can go into CWM and flash the Rom.

(to go in recovery press Volume UP + Power Button + Home Button at same time until the phone is booted into CWM)

The kernel you’re flashing before installing Rom doesn’t matter since with v4 will be replaced by PhilZ 3.1 for XXLS7

…That’s all!

    who are using the ULTIMATE V5, under any circumstances use the video mode of the camera’s new JB that this rom.

    it simply crashes the entire device and not turn over after the restart.

    I had to format my phone to 2.3.5 to give a Fullwip and clean the whole system.

    I enjoyed the v5, JB was one of the best we’ve tested, however this camera Bug pissed me off!

  • Arthur

    how to restore that animation when the screen locks like a tv off?

  • matt

    flashed multiwindow hack (after wipe cache & dalvik) but still does not work.

  • ninehneh

    i’ve flashed this rom but upon starting it’s asking for a password in german??

  • אילן איפרגן

    Hi, could you add Hebrew language please ?

    • Joseph Mohar

      install a.i. type keyboard and in set up you will find hebrew (scroll down) mark it

      and switch to this keyboard

      • אילן איפרגן

        Thank you! but, i realy love this rom and i wanted to ask if there is a way to expose the hebrew language in this androis version. i want to use hebrew local..

  • Dieutonio


    Thank you very much for this ROM runs very well and or battery life is much less fragile :-) This only problem I encounter is a FC when I go to “Notifications panel”. Maybe the problem is encountered among several users of this ROM and a solution “patch” is applicable but I have to go through the translator for you to pass this information, my English is very limited;-)So it is difficult to follow in English everything written because Google does not translate necessarily pages well :-)

    UPDATED Post! :)
    Check it out!

    It would be useful to have more toggles in the fututre e.g flight mode, flashlight etc.
    Learning Hub crashes, otherwise a great ROM – the best so far and highly recommended!

    Hi, the crt off after applying the fix, not fully working. Some solution? I’ve applied wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache and nothing. :”( Heeeeelllllp!

  • ovi g

  • artcosta

    Very good Rom. Stable and fast. I try the other ones but this is the best. Good work.

  • gurnay

    I need to know as I can qualify cifs remote, I installed kernel phil and the ROM v5

  • paul mc mahon

    had this rom running on my SGN N7000 phone for 4 days ran fine then it quit ??? would not get past start screen where it says samsung galaxy note n7000 then nothing at all had to restore backup i made good job i did .

  • Kan9al

    v5 is so much worse than v4.

    In v5 I got both camera and gallery apps and both work without fc. In v4 they would fc often and sphero wouldnt even work.

    But in v4, battery life was much much MUCH better.
    It would charge faster.
    And splitscreen on MultiWindow would work (v5 only fullscreened them).

    Factory reset through rom, all cache cleared, all folders formatted, clean install from extSD.
    Is there a fix ?
    Maybe a v6 coming soon to address these new issues?

  • Bledi

    Cant flash anything :(

  • ovi g

    yes, crt-off working after the new fix most of the times(more than 90%). at least it doesn’t turn on the screen after having it locked like it used to do before. thanks
