How to Flash Video here!

Thanks to hamdogg and exploregadgets

How to flash:

Nandroid Backup before flash is highly recommended!

  • Load *.zip on your SD/EXT Card
  • Restart in CWM
  • Be sure you’re on SAFE KERNEL, then you can wipe
  • Full wipe /data/factory reset /cache and dalvik
  • Format /data /system and /preload
  • 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!

          Same here. If we download via updateme we have to wipe everything and flash or it’s just an update???

          • a

            u can use titanium backup. it also backs up app’s data. so you dont lose your progress in a game for example

          • rafrox

            Why tutanium says this rom is not rooted?

          • amolao169

            because you no are root yet, go to superSU icon,click update and now try titanium.

  • Blackeyepearl

  • Shakil

  • James Morrison

    Poweramp will now stop playing music if you have the lock screen functions enabled. Music will play fine if the lock screen controls are disabled. The minute you lock the screen it will just stop playing the music if you have it enabled. Only thing I have found that doesn’t work on this ROM.

    I Wouldn’t be bothered normally but the entire reason I bought this app was because there are no lock screen music controls on the built in music app anymore (which annoys me to the high heavens). And this app has lock screen music changing functions.

    Any Ideas?

  • HY

    Wallpaper and lock screen still not able to show full screen when select from Gallery.

  • mushroom

    Hi, is there any way to change the alarm sounds ? I need something loud to wake me and I was using the rooster in ICS.

    • mushroom

    • mohannad zidane

  • frank

  • Maroussia

    Nice rom, thank you. But it seems that I’ve lost the root after installing :-(

  • Maroussia

    I used the 2nd method :
    “For people who have Unrooted phone and ICS 4.0.4″…
    Is it normal ?

    • mushroom

      I got that but installed triangle away and now it’s fixed

  • Maroussia

    Hello again, I’ve been using your ROM for 2 days now and – I don’t know if you can fix that, but the S pen seems to be far less precise than on my previous 4.0.3 ICS stock ROM. It’s like it was on the initial GB ROM (and it was almost unuseable) so I guess it can be improved by software, but how… ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/khem.khemarak Khem Khemarak

    When remove battery and reinsert battery and reboot, my device always stuck at Samsung logo. If I normally reboot without removing battery, it is rebooted normally. Any idea?

  • Shaz

    I’m still blank. My Note is unrooted. I’ve downloaded the ROM, Odin and the hydracore.

    Can you tell me step by step on how to install this ROM as tis is my first time doing it. Pleeaaaaseeee? ASAP.

  • Lucchese

  • Adam Lazuli

    Hello. Ive installed this rom. Superb. The CRT OFF works for the first time. Then no after that. Why? Do i have to do something to make it works again. I really like it. Help please.

  • Jihed

    Hello! This rom is great… But arab text is sooo small and changing system preferences doesn’t fix it?
    Any ideas please?

  • intendus


    When i’ve had my earpiece connected and receive calls, i’m able to hear myself on my side when I speak through the phone but nothing can be heard on the receiving end.

    This issue had been fixed in the latest ICS stock rom but the issue persist on this rom.


  • Viperamg

  • Paul Lai

  • asktheobvious

    ok a question everyone seems to be scarred to ask DOES IT WORK WITH THE I717??????????????????????

  • http://twitter.com/ooserjoo Giacomo Favilla

    Spero mi rispondiate :)
    premetto sono un niubbo per quanto riguarda android. ho visto la vostra rom e mi piacerebbe installarla senza fare casini. l’unica cosa avei bisogno di una guida passo passo per non briccare o commettere errori irrimediabili.
    Attualmente sono con la leaked LSA stock flashata senza apportare nessuna modifica. solo che da quando ho questa versione mi ritrovo con un consumo della batteria assurdo. trovandomi benissimo con jb, non volevo tornare ad ice cream aspettando l’ufficiale di Samsung ma montare direttamente questa Ultimate.
    quello che vorrei sapere dalla LSA quali sono i passaggi da seguire per installarla??
    vi ringrazio anticipatamente

  • Al Finch

  • unknown

    Hi, Thank you for the rom first. I flashed it from a rooted Gingerbread but now I do not have root access on Ultimate Jellybean rom.
    Please suggest how can I root now without going back on ICS or gingerbread?

    Thanks in advance.

    • http://www.facebook.com/bradlee.castro Kenji Akizuki

      Thats simple.flash first hydacore kernel before u flash jb.:)

      • Abhi

        Thanks, but since I have already installed JB, can I root my phone instead of re-flashing the rom all over again?

        • http://www.facebook.com/bradlee.castro Kenji Akizuki

          Ur phone already rooted once u succesfully flash v5 or v5.1 check ur app u will see super user it means u are rooted:)

          • http://www.facebook.com/bradlee.castro Kenji Akizuki

            Download root checker if you want to check if ur phone is rooted

  • Lungfai

    I flashed the rom for 2 days and it works nicely. Thank you.

    While checking around, i found that my CSC become unknown and i cannot connect to my kies anymore. Is there any solution? I checked that there is odin flash for sgs3 in other forum,but not for n7000. The biggest problem is that the l cannot install odin in the pc as the local admin right is not granted for installing the software not authorized by my corp. So can go only cwm flash. Grateful if some light can be shed.
