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!

    Hi guys

    I installed Ultimate_N7000_LSZ_JB_4.1.2_v5.2 ROM and it was perfect for the 1st day then I realized that my phone keep restarting on its own when the screen is off,sometimes at 30 mins interval or even more.the phone don’t show the boot screens.the screen will always be off when this happens.I also noticed that this doesn’t happen when my phone is charging

    another problem I’m facing is at times when i try to unlock my phone it stays black for a while until it can respond

    a third problem is when I unlock my phone it will show in the status bar the message “sd card was removed unexpectedly” and then say “preparing sd card” .then it won’t show the contents either in the gallery or the music player but I can still access them from file explorer

    sometimes when it restarts i get a code on the status bar instead of the service provider (pic provided)

    before I installed this Rom I was on official JB UAE version which I flashed using Odin and then I rooted my phone using PhilZ-cwm6-JPLSB-UAE-4.89.4

    I wiped everything before installing it,Full wipe /data/factory reset /cache and dalvik.Format /data /system and /preload

    please help me urgently

  • satven21
