Unofficial CyanogenMod 10.2 test build is now available for the Galaxy Note 2 model number N7100. Use this tutorial in order to successfully manage to complete the installation of all the files that I have listed in this article.
This is a custom ROM build that is using a test version of the future CM 10.2 ROM. In order to successfully install all the required files at your first attempt, then you should first take a look at the preparation guide below:
- Use this post only with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 model number N7100.
- Do not attempt to update any other smartphones using the files that you find in this article. If you install these files on the wrong device, then you will end up bricking it.
- This is a custom ROM so you shouldn’t expect any bloatware apps to be present after the installation.
- For this guide to work your device has to be factory unlocked, rooted and running a CWM or TWRP Recovery image.
- The tutorial will ask you to wipe data and factory reset your device before starting the installation, as this will allow the new CM 10.2 Unofficial test build to launch on your phablet device.
- The ‘factory reset’ step will not wipe the contents stored on your device’s internal / external SD card. Factory Reset will only delete contents from the system partition.
- If you want to backup installed apps data then you can use the Titanium Backup app from here.
- In order to backup SMS, Call Logs info or APN Internet Settings, then you should use the following apps for Android: SMS backup & restore | Call Logs backup & restore | APN Settings Backup & Restore. Root access is required for some of these apps.
- Sync your Contacts data with your Gmail account. This will prevent your device from switching off in the middle of the updating process.
- Enable USB Debugging from Android Developer Options menu.
- Make sure that your device’s battery has enough power left before completely switching off.
- Read all the info I’ve listed and make sure that you don’t skip any steps.
- Note that this tutorial is destined to be used by advanced Android users and you shouldn’t blame us in case you lose any important data files or you brick your device in the process.
Since you’ve gone past all of the above, continue to the next part of this post and learn how to successfully upgrade your device with the brand new unofficial build of CyanogenMod. Remember that this is not an official Nightly build, but a test version that should be only used to see if your device supports it and check some of the latest CM features.
