If you are the owner of a Galaxy Note 10.0 N8000 and would like to experience all that ParanoidAndroid has to offer then we have good news. XDA Developers member Androguide.fr has developed a way to flash Paranoid Android ROM on the Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000. You can now enjoy the amazing hybrid User Interface directly from your tablet, just follow the guide below.
Please note: there have been some reports from users of this ROM advising issues with soft buttons not showing up once the device has been booted. To rectify this, navigate to ‘Settings’ > ‘Systems’ > ‘Navigation Bar’ then simply enable them from here. The Paranoid Android ROM is based on CyanogenMod 10 (CM10) so there are a few issues which have come across, but as all things, it’s a work in progress.
Before you begin:
- This guide is for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 only.
- Your device must first be rooted and have ClockworkMod Recovery installed.
- Ensure you have at least 75% battery life left on your device.
- Ensure you have made a complete backup as this guide will wipe all your personal data.
- Make sure you have the Samsung Galaxy USB Drivers.
- Make sure you visit the Developer Options and enable USB Debugging Mode before you start.
- Turn off any security programs and applications running on the Android-based device and the computer. This includes any antivirus.
1. First you will need to download the following files:
2. Once downloaded you will need to copy both the Paranoid Android ROM and the Google Apps package and place them on the internal SD card of your Galaxy Note 10.1.
3. Switch off your device then boot it into Recovery Mode. To do this simply hold down the ‘Volume Up’ and ‘Power’ buttons at the same time until you see the Samsung logo flash on the screen. Wait until the logo flashes a second time then release the ‘Power’ button whilst continuing to hold down ‘Volume Up’. Once you reach the ClockworkMod Recovery menu you can release ‘Volume Up’.
4. At this stage you will need to make a Nandroid Backup. To do this simply go to‘Backup and Restore’ > ‘Backup’.
5. Now you need to select ‘Wipe Cache’ and on the next screen press ‘Confirm’ .
6. Then select ‘Advanced’ > ‘Wipe Dalvik Cache’. Again on the next screen press ‘Confirm’.
7. If you are using a ROM other than CyanogenMod 10, you will need to wipe it. Select ‘Wipe Data/ Factory Reset’ then on the next screen press ‘Confirm’.
8. From here select the following, ‘Install ZIP from SD card’ > ‘Choose ZIP from SD card’ > ‘Paranoid Android ROM’.
9. Once this is done so the same with the Google Apps package. ‘Install ZIP from SD card’ > ‘Choose ZIP from SD card’ > ‘Google Apps’.
10. Now navigate back to the main menu by selecting ‘Go back’ then choose‘Reboot System Now’.
