How to Convert Galaxy Note 3 into Note 5!


howtoconvert-note3-into-note5

Can’t afford a Note 5?  Perhaps you don’t like the fact that Note 5 no longer has microSD slot and removable battery?

No worries, you can easily convert your Galaxy Note 3 into a Note 5 using the DarkLord N5 ROM.

Based on latest Android 5.1.1 Note 5 firmware, the DarkLord N5 ROM brings you all the features of Note 5 plus much much more.  Inside, you will find everything you can do on the Note 5 including themes, settings, UI, etc…etc…  For S-Pen, you will be able to enjoy all of the new Note 5 features along with screen-off memo that works flawless.  Essentially, the DarkLord N5 ROM makes your Note 3 better than Note 5 with support for IR blaster, multi-window for any apps, People Edge/App Edge from S6 Edge Plus, and more.

Performance is decent on its stock kernel with excellent battery life, probably much better than on a real Note 5.  With custom kernel, you should also be able to improve the performance quite a bit, I should have an update on that also.

Overall, if you want to convert your Note 3 into Note 5, the DarkLord N5 ROM will do just that.  Of course, you won’t be able to get any feature on the Note 5 that requires Note 5 hardware such as the fingerprint sensor but otherwise it’s simply amazing.  So, definitely give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Max,
    I installed this ROM successfully without a hitch, am running this ROM for a couple of days now, except that I bought a refurbished Note 3 from TMO without insurance, the original ROM works fine with earpiece speaker working right, after trying different ROM AICP and some other ROM earpiece speaker stop working, i replace that earpiece module without any luck, any opinion? I used the phone function using the speakerphone functionality (buttom speaker). Any ideas how to fix this thingy?

    Hi Max,

    Is this port deodexed? I wanna know if I can install Xposed on this port. Thanks.

    • 곽케빈 says:

      I just did some reading and installed Xposed on this port ROM:

      The DarkLord N5 ROM for the Note 3 is Deodexed and I was able to install Xposed Framework on it. Specifically this one:
      All Samsung Devices on 5.1.1 with 32-bit chip like Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 (xposed-v73-sdk22-tw-arm-custom-build-by-wanam-20150903.zip)

  13. 69Patel says:

    Running smoothly on N900w8, battery seems to be alright and ill see if battery gets better iver the next few days.Only downside of this rom is Xposed Framework doesnt work on many devices running lollipop, so your favourite mods mught be gone unless you find an alternative.

  14. Raza says:

    its freaking awesome rom. i flashed it 2 days back. everything is buttery smooth. the only problem is charging time. my fone is taking way too long to get fully charged. almost 4 hours. and the lean kernel i think is currently not compatible with the international sm n9005 model.
    Do reply.. i;ll be very thankful
    thanks

    Hi, Max. How can I fix the video recording force close? I’m using Canadian SM-N900W8. All other note 5 rom seems like video recording does not work.

  19. PJA says:

    Installation on my SM-N900T, performance, etc. were all brilliant…but, I encountered one glitch that is a deal-killer:

    Using DarkLord ROM, my Note 3 won’t hold a WiFi connection for more than 15 minutes at a time. Over a 1 week period, I tested it multiple times on 4 strong WiFi networks that I have regular access to; and, each time I got the same results.

    Went back to AICP Lollipop. No S-Pen, but WiFi and everything else works perfectly. Too bad, I miss my S-Pen.

  20. Shahrul says:

    My note 3 sm n9005 work perfectly using this rom but i can’t record a video. Any solution on this

  21. baha rashed says:

    it is a very good rom.
    I find some bugs there, when I connected my phone to gear s , gear s battery drain quickly (3-4 hours)…
    another problems: when I call or answer and talk people said to me that they hear me twice.
    I cant open one note app.

  22. Vivek says:

    I am having issue after installing DarkLordN5 RC2.1 on Canadian Note 3.

    ROM itself had issue that after screen rotation it was giving massage that flip cover is installed (I did not use flip cover). Later i decided to install stock Lollipop ROM and real issue came that back and menu buttons were not working on touch. Buttons are working with S pen but not touch. Buttons also work in CM12.1 or stock 4.4.2. I was not able to find any solution for this from any side yet.

  23. Vijay says:

    sm-n900w8:
    Could not load DarkLord after flashing. It got stuck at Samsung logo. Flashed 5 times still no luck.

    Also plz let me know whether video recording and NFC works on this ROM as I have tried Norma, Phronesis and both doesn’t have these functions working. Both ROMs are based on DarkLord.

    Thanks,

    After many attempts I managed to get this working – it’s amazing, quick and not crashed or anything yet, I am in UK, SM9005, I was rushing about till 2am getting it working, it was bricked at one point, but somehow fudged my way through. It’s a personal phone, but had GOOD.com installed for work emails, but that no longer works, as GOOD block custom rom’s apparently – has anyone had this experience, or even better still, a work around it?

    Thanks!

    Hi…can u build for note 3 neo sm-n750?

  29. Darcy says:

    Solid rom, but I’m running into some serious overheating and battery drain issues. The phone CPU temp will jump to over 80 degrees Celsius after about 3 minutes of normal usage (i.e. no games or videos, just basic internet or messaging). As for the battery life, I lose a percent of battery every few minutes.

    I imagine a different kernel would help. Does anyone have any recommendations? I’m running the Canadian SM-900W8 variant.

    I Installed the ROM a few weeks ago and the only nagging problems are that Netflix does not work and Wifi Tether does not work. Other than those problems the ROM seems stable.

    Has anyone been able to come up with a Fix for those problems ie. Netflix or WiFi Tether?

    I ran into the “Recording failed” after installing this rom how can i solve this problem and also i tried clearing cache and data of camera app and wipe cache and dalvik cache help me please

    • Darcy says:

      This is a pretty common problem that I and a number of others encountered. The issue has to do with using the previous android generation boot loader. So basically if you’ve been running a rooted note 3 for the last year or more you wouldn’t have recieved the update which would have upgraded the boot loader. Unfortunately simply installing the note 3 camera from the aroma installer doesn’t fix the problem.

      To fix this you could manually flash the latest boot loader, but the easier method is to just revert to your stock rom, run all firmware upgrades, and then try flashing this rom again. After doing this I was able to get the camera (and s note) fully up and running on this rom without any additional steps.

      • Sirhc says:

        Hi Darcy, what method did you use to revert the phone to your stock rom? i tried reverting mine using odin but it keeps on failing. can you share how you do it? I’m using canadian version note 3 sm-n900w8.

    Just installed the darklord note 5 rom on my note 3. However the wake up lag is unbearable. It takes a good 6-8 seconds for the screen to wake up but once it’s awake everythings fast. Also the notification light doesn’t seem to be working. If anyone knows how to solve these issues, I would really appreciate it.

    I installed the Dark Lord for SPRINT.
    I discovered that there is no VOICEMAIL management in the ROM and when I reinstalled Voicemail from my Titanium Backup it failed to connect to the voicemail server and doesn’t get the voicemails.

    Can anyone tell me how to get the voicemail app to connect to my Sprint Voicemail and get the messages?

    • larry says:

      Hank, thought I’d give a reply since the developer never will, I’ve had the same issue with this rom along with random “do not disturb” enabling on it’s own, no vibrate and weak signal. I’m still looking for a stable rom where everything works but I’m having no luck. I’m convinced that the people on YouTube that promote these roms don’t really test them and if so, don’t tell the whole story of the known issues. I know it’s very irritating to not get answers from these guys, so I’m very close to just going back stock because these roms are just not as good as they promote and you end up settling for a lot of irritations. Good Luck Sir.

    Help!
    i would love to do this on my note3 since you mentioned that SM-N900L is supported.
    btw, noob on the rooting world and still doing a lot of reading and watching videos to learn.

    i was able to root the phone however, i have several issues
    1. unable to unlock the bootloader : i downloaded the samsung usb drivers but nothing comes out when i connect my phone while in recovery mode > boot in bootloader
    2. unable to install twrp or clockworkz custom recovery. my phone doesnt seem to be listed. i tried to use the N9005 – international version, the phone went black and it doesnt load anymore, need to restore the original recovery.

    thanks a lot 🙂

  60. Han says:

    Cool rom, but becomes a pain to use in the long run.

    Apps do not automatically start up on reboot. You have to manually tap on certain apps in order to get them running. Becomes a hassle especially when it comes to instant messengers like Skype or Line. I wont know if an message comes in unless i activate them.

    Battery also drains like quicksand on this rom. I find myself replacing batteries very often. Even when i’m out with 2 fully charged batteries, didnt even last me half a day !! Whatever battery conservation method or program doesnt seem to work.

    I started off writing this message at 85% charge and now as I write this sentence, I am left with 78%.

    Very disappointing, I shaill be reverting back to Lollipop.

    • Mbudzi says:

      I have been using this rom since October last year and I think for a Note 3 the battery life is excellent, I charge in the morning and again in the evening. I removed bloatware and (I don’t know why but) I find that if I use a very dark (even black) home screen my phone doesn’t drain the battery even with heavy use. I have tried many roms before and I like this one best

  61. Han says:

    Another major flaw I forgot to mention is that the USB 3.0 functionality does not work with this rom.

    If you select the “Use USB 3.0”, you will constantly get prompted an alert error for being unable to connect via USB 3.0.

    I don’t know whether this is a limitation brought forward from the Note 5 device, because Note 5 does not have USB 3.0 function.

    You are pretty much stuck with USB 2.0.

    Overall the OS and the interface really make this one of the nicest looking and easy to use roms. But the quick battery drain, unreliability of apps, loss of USB 3.0 functions are HUGE FLAWS that cannot be overlooked.

    Unless you are someone who is always near a charger, or has many spare batteries, and can afford the time to manually turn on your apps everytime after a reboot, this is just not a feasible rom to use in the long run.

    • larry says:

      working on all these models is not the problem, yes it will install, the question is “How Well” and what are the issues, just saying it will work does not tell us the whole story. A ford engine will work in a Chevy, but without the proper changes/modifications it will not work well…

  70. Chet says:

    Hi,

    Well I have to say so far this has been a great rom. I had a scare because I just rooted my phone and decided to install a rom. Well my backup did not backup right and went I went to install this rom it would not boot so I thought. The aroma installer would not open and my phone kept rebooting. I finally installed twrp v2.8.7.0. I had 3.0 installed . I used odin. Well boom the Aroma installer worked. So I installed rom and phone was stuck on the Samsung screen. Well I thought it was . After 5 re installs and freaking out I just walked away and when I looked back the phone was optimizing
    apps. Whew well hope this information is useful to someone.
    Thanks,
    Chet

    • larry says:

      no it’s not helpful, it’s almost like you are kissing the developer rear end, run this thing for a week and report “all” the issues with the rom. this helps the developer know what to look for and it helps others in deciding if they want to endure the known issues or move on to another rom.

  71. Arvind Rayasam says:

    I have tried over and over to install this ROM and it just won’t work. I’m using the Canadian N900W8 via TWRP 3.0. Every time it fails at the same spot, trying to launch the Aroma installer. The process just freezes and TWRP restarts. I would have really liked to try this ROM but for now I’m going back to ResurrectionRemix until this can be sorted out. If anyone has any clues I’m all ears.

    Thanks.

Is there any solution to this problem?

    so not able to change my notification tone…
    plz help

  79. Arvind Rayasam says:

    Frightening battery consumption, almost to the point of being unusable as a daily driver. I’m tempted to go to a different ROM because of it. For those that don’t know the typical battery drain rate that I’ve observed is ~10% an hour when the phone is idle and can be as high as 25% an hour when using GPS and the phone. I use the GPS a lot for google maps and am on the phone a lot when I drive. Interesting note is my car charger can’t keep up.

  80. Steve says:

    Hi guys,

    I have installed this rom and I am very happy with the performance . Just a few minutes ago I received an email from google that someone tried to access my account from Vietnam. I don’t have anything to do with Vietnam. This worries me because darklord is based in Vietnam ( I think) . Maybe I am worrying without a reason but I thought I should post this for your reference.

    Please comment

    • Carlos Albornoz says:

      I’m sorry. I didn’t do a search and it turns out that I found the answer within the comments. I apologize.

  86. matt says:

    is anyone else having issues with the link not working? and can someone send or post a working link. thanks

  87. Trevor Hopkins says:

    Does anyone else not have vibrate function after installing this rom?

    • larry says:

      you should really read some of the notes concerning this rom, 90% of the people that install this rom and are honest will tell you they have problem with vibrate, battery drain, Bluetooth, no signal from provider, missing VM and installing that app will not work, and the list goes on and on. if you don’t care to send message’s, connect to cell towers, use vibrate and so on, then this app is for you!

    I have installed the [AURORA]N900-S6N5-HYBRID-END on my N900 international which works fine.
    This ROM definitely doesn’t work. It doesn’t get past the initial boot screen.
    The Aurora hybrid is almost the same UI, but some of the functions of the stylus dont work. Otherwise fine.

  90. Pial says:

    I have the SM 900 model Samsung Note 3 would the method work on my mobile.

  91. David Pulvermacher says:

    Pial, if your phone is an SM N900 with an Exynos chip like mine, it doesn’t. I tried it and it doesn’t boot properly. No harm in trying…Just do a complete backup first using Philz, Titanium or something similar….

    To all people:

    Is that hard to press CTRL+F and write the question you’re searching for, instead of repeat the same questions over and over again? I saw questions answered to be re-questioned again by different users below!

    Yes, the phone I flashed also has the “Camera Stopped” problem (it wasn’t for me and person is still testing since today to see any other issues, but I knew all the possible issues and still have a couple of places where I’ve seen fixes, although I didn’t test any of them yet).

    I’ve never had this phone, I’m no genius, It’s been a long time (2 years) since I’ve flashed any android phone and yet I was able to have all my questions answered and Rom flashed in 2 afternoons (after already flashed Resurection Remix Rom and TouchWiz Rom and did not liked them).

    Why?
    Guys, ask google. And no, I don’t mean “How do I flash my galaxy note 3 with a note 5 rom” exactly (although it comes a lot of sites it can be deceiving).
    To install any android Rom on any android phone including this one, you’ll have to root, flash TWRP (not the v3.x.x.x for this rom) or CWM Recovery and then flash the rom through there.

    Search for these and you’ll start to understand all the steps.
    What I mean is, instead of being lazy (one guy actually requested a video of this procedure), search for flashing patterns in that brand or model. Videos are for Rom review, not complete tutorials for people that almost request “please do this on my phone” since they only know to ask “how this can be done?”. Search it! Inform yourself! And the compatible phone models are included in this category.
    There is a reason that developers say “do this at your own risk”!

    Ocasionally, you may have to do 2 things depending on the brand and model of the phone which are unlocking the bootloader or flash a custom kernel although I think in this case is not needed (I worked with the 9005).
    REALLY Important: If you don’t want to mess up, perform a nandroid backup and also backup your EFS partitionin case anything goes wrong, you have backups of OS and phone Modem.

    Next Step is testing.. And for that, I feel and understand some users on this post that, there is no way of knowing prior to install (although if the room has at least one month you’ll have people complaining, so search prior to install to see what you can be expecting after flashing rom).

    I’ve only found one useful answer here, including instructions and thanks Darcy, I’ll try updating the bootloader for fixing the camera if it was the only problem (+1 possible solution added to list).

    Oh and Btw to you all, xda is the source for android modding and customization so it’s always a reference to check and confirm procedures/patterns.
