Android 4.4.1 KitKat for Galaxy Note GT-N7000 ( Omni ROM )

Galaxy Note GT-N7000 (the first ever device in the Note series) can have Android KitKat and that too 4.4.1  !!

Yes. Its indeed a very good news. There are so many users like me who were waiting for this. XDA Developer XpLoDWilD has developed the wonderful Omni ROM. Even though in nightly stage, the ROM looks to be stable and smooth. I am using Omni ROM since last 2 days and I am really very happy with the ROM performance. There are many new features available with this ROM.

As the developer says, OmniROM is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (Kitkat), which is designed to increase performance, reliability and features over stock Android for your device. 

  • For the details about the features, visit the following links:-  

  • For details about installation, troubleshooting etc... visit the following link:-

ART (the new Android RunTime introduced with KitKat) is also available alongwith Dalvik in this ROM. The more detailed explaination about ART (which is based on Ahead Of Time compilation) can be found on Android Police link as follows,

Below is a quick walkthrough video of Omni ROM prepared by me. Do watch !!!

  1. error!!! batery down... no charge

    1. u r facing this issue after installing the rom? I did not face such issue. have you read the XDA developer thread, checked user comments before installing the rom?

  2. Is there a problem with the video player after installing Kitkat on GT-N7000??
    Also, can I continue to use Samsung Kies after the KitKat upgrade??
    If not, what software should I use to backup my phone?
    Can I continue to use Google Play??

    1. I have not faced any issues with video player. Its working ok for me after installing this ROM. I am not sure about using Samsung Kies. This update is not official one from Samsung (Samsung has TouchWiz UI for its phones). This is a custom ROM. You can connect the phone in mass storage mode to your computer.

  3. i have serious issues now, i have installed some omni rom versions but its pathetic worse than samsung's official 4.1.2 , its like i m using micromax's software in my samsung note GTN7000 player is not working..brightness on max.. camera have just one option to click.. no network signal..etc etc what to do and how? provide me a link or some solution to get bak to my samsung or suggest something better and working..

    1. Strange. I have not faced such issues. Overall experience of using Omni rom was really nice for me. Have you tried installing the latest builds of Omni Rom? Omni Rom has entered into Android 4.4.2 version already. I am currently onto 30th April 2014 build. Just try doing full fresh install of Omni Rom and check whether you are still facing such issues.

      Omni rom is AOSP based rom and thats why u feel like micromax's software as that is AOSP based too. Samsung integrates TouchWiz framework before selling the phones. I prefer AOSP based Android as the system load is much lower than TouchWiz based Roms.
