For this week’s Verizon Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the week, check out the latest Jasmine ROM by XDA user Hsbadr. The last time we checked it out it was a really cool ROM but I did encounter some battery problems as it was draining battery much faster than normal.

The other day, I was upgrading my Verizon Note 3 to the latest Biggins ROM and tried rebooting into SafeStrap Recovery using SafeStrap app.
Well, the worst thing I imagined happened, my phone kept trying to reboot into stock recovery over and over again until the battery on my phone drained.
Just a quick update for those of you having trouble installing custom ROMs on Verizon Note 3 with Android 4.4.2 NC4 firmwware (check the last 3 letters under Settings->About Phone in Build Number).
First, you must use the latest version of Safestrap Recovery.
Android 4.4.2 KitKat TouchWiz firmware just came out couple days ago. For those of you unrooted with stock firmware, you probably received it via OTA (Over-The-Air). Well, that can be a good thing that you got the update, but did you know there’s no known root method on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Verizon Note 3?
For this week’s Verizon Note 3 SM-N900V ROM of the week, check out Eclipse ROM with Android 4.3 and complete overhaul of TouchWiz UI to AOSP.
As many of you well know, due to Verizon’s idiocy policy on locked bootloaders, Verizon Note 3 users have not been able to install AOSP ROMs such as CyanogenMod, AOKP, etc…etc…
