Yes, you heard it right. Its a very good news for Galaxy Note fans. Android 5.1 Lollipop for Galaxy Note GT-N7000 is now available. Thanks to NightOwl ROM developed by XDA Developer Bauner.

This ROM is CM 12.1 (CyanogenMod 12.1) based. Few days back, BETA 10 version of the NightOwl ROM was out. Now, Bauner has merged CM 12.1 changes. So basically, its mostly the same as the BETA 10 + updated to CM 12.1 .

I am using the build since last 8 hours and I must say that its damn smooth. No lags, no random reboots, no hangs. But please do read below important lines...

Please take a note that its a preview build. There can be bugs. It is working stable but only the main functions like telephony, messaging, wifi, camera, gps, browser, video playback and playstore are tested.
