For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 ROM of the week, check out X-Note ROM.
Based on European firmware MJ1 Android 4.3, X-Note ROM brings you a custom ROM based on stock with lots of goodies/features.
First, X-Note ROM comes Knox-free, I personally detest Knox as it’s not really that helpful for rooting and custom ROMs.
Second, X-Note ROM brings you goodies like Multi-Window Manager and Pen Window Manager so you can add your favorite 3rd party apps not supported by default Note 3 Multi-Window and Pen Window. Yes, you can now multi-task with your Angry Birds game running on half of your screen while e-mailing your boss.
X-Note ROM also brings you goodies like screen-off Torch, you can simply hit the Volume Up button when your screen is off to activate the flashlight easily when you are in the garage.
These are all part of Xposed Framework so make sure you install them and activate the modules like shown in video then reboot!
Speaker sound also has been boosted on this ROM. (You can also boost sound on any Galaxy Note 3 with Qualcomm CPU.)
Since Note 3 does come with a rather large screen and resolution, you can surely find ways to optimize your apps by changing the DPI using the on-board Xposed App Settings. See our full step-by-step tutorial on how to use Xposed App Settings.
There’s also call recording module that will allow you to enable call recording, very handy for those of you who work on your phone all day long.
Overall, X-Note ROM is onto a great start. I am sure this is just tip of the iceburg but certainly will be 10 times better than running stock.
If you haven’t tried X-Note ROM yet, definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
