Official CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies Arrive for the Verizon Galaxy Note 2

samsung galaxy note 2

With all of the happy news floating around that developers unlocked the re-locked bootloader on Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2, we thought we should point out that nightlies for CyanogenMod 10.1 are now up! According to the forum that is posting info on the ROM’s, it seems there are a few bugs (non-working GPS, “flaky” NFC), but that’s what you get when you flash new nightlies. I don’t have to explain what all CM brings to your device, right? To sum it up, it’s vanilla Android with many enhancements on top. 

To flash, all you need is ClockworkMod Recovery installed, but of course, please don’t forget to make a backup.

    No, but it will work as a stylus. No Spen apps.

  • SPenFanChick1998

    Will S pen features still work with this like the S Pen apps and when I pop it out will it open S Note? Can anyone confirm?

    • r0lct

      I doubt it. That’s all TW software and one of the reasons I’m staying stock/rooted.

      I actually bought the Note 2 thinking I wouldn’t even use the pen, just for the screen and battery size over the S3. But I’ve now handwritten (OCR) a few meetings and love it.

    • S-Pen will work when using it to navigate on the screen but you loose the sound and the S- Pen options. You also lose the multi-window feature

    Can anyone share an easy way to root? I am getting a Note 2 this week – and looking for the right method to root, for someone is capable but not ultra-techie. –

    I like CyanogenMod, but I would NEVER….EVER….suggest to a reader to load a nightly. Yes there are some that come here that know what they are getting into….but I am more concerned with the ones who DON’T!

      Chill man. CM nightlies are surprisingly stable and links to a thread/instructions are always included, at least on this site. I would be willing to bet that most people that frequent this site know what they’re doing or can at least properly follow instructions.

      • i do the nightlies, nightly and they work fine…

    • fanboy1974

      If you got as far as unlocking the bootloader on your own I think you pass the test.

  • The link should be http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2121931. You linked to the unofficial one.

    • darkl3ad3r

      When I put the tip in last night there was no official thread created yet. Anyways the link to the CM10.1 nightlies site is all you need if you’re willing to flash nightlies.

    I’ll miss some of Samsung’s features, but not enough to keep Touchwiz, which is just too ugly. As soon as things look a little more stable and battery life improves, I’m flashing this and never looking back.

  • KraYzeE

    GPS works if you turn off WIFI & Network Location Services. So yeah technically it doesn’t work, but it’s a workaround

  • T4rd

    Somehow, this phone/phablet just managed to get better.

    • KraYzeE

      Beans v7 is very Solid, Must be your restore.

    Carson. true that Tiffany`s remark is something, last tuesday I got a great Bugatti Veyron after I been earnin $6484 this past month and in excess of $10k last month. this is definitely the most-financialy rewarding I’ve ever had. I started this 3 months ago and practically straight away began to bring home at least $72, per hour. I follow the details on this straightforward website,, jump15.comCHECK IT OUT

    I loved cyanogenmod on my droid inc, now I feel like AOKP runs the ROM space for the gnex (aside from bugless beast). Maybe I just haven’t given cyanogenmod enough of a chance this time around.

    • bose301s

      Have tried AOKP, always come back to CM, just seems faster and smoother and gives better battery life for me. There are still a ton of ROMs for the GNex though so there’s something for everyone.

    • msnight04

      I loved CyanogenMod on my Dinc as well but moved to AOKP when I got the GNex. I’m now on the milestone build of CyanogenMod 10.1 and loving it. I feel AOKP has slowed down since ICS was the latest and greatest.

    • darkl3ad3r

      I never understood how anyone could prefer something like AOKP over CyanogenMod.

      AOKP (and basically every AOSP derivative) is nothing more than a mod for CM. CyanogenMod is the base for nearly all AOSP ROM’s out there. In fact, I’d be greatly impressed if you found a single AOSP ROM that wasn’t built using CM as a base.

      Hell, the K in AOKP stands for Kang, which although I freaking hate the word with a passion, means to borrow code from another developer. In other words, AOKP is a modded CyanogenMod. Nothing more.
