For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 ROM of the week, check out VN ROM.

Based on latest Android 4.3 N900XXUCMJ6 Samsung firmware, VN ROM brings you lots of goodies while weeding out annoying features like Knox.

For starters, VN ROM comes with a choice of stock or transparent theme. I highly recommend the transparent theme as it’s a major part of the ROM and gives you some nice visual upgrades to your Note 3.

Some notable features include call recording, call button on contacts lists, exit button on stock browser, Flash Player (must use Dolphin browser and enable flash in settings), camera shutter off option, multi-window enabled for all apps, pen window enabled for all apps through Pen Window Manager App, and Wanam Xposed app.

With Wanam Xposed app, you will be able to further tweak your UI and system shortcuts. For complete demo of Wanam Xposed, please see How to Install Wanam Xposed App on Note 3.

Overall, VN ROM is a great starting ROM recommended for noobs and flasholics who want a lightweight ROM with more features over stock. So, definitely give this ROM a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    I have bought a Sm-N900 (Exynos) couple of days back , the battery life was normal I got around 20 hours with 8-10 hours screen on , but when I updated the stock f/w , now i loose 10% battery in standby mode and the battery life is 4 hours and lasts 5 hours in standby , this is so not happening .

    This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
    blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than
    that, how you presented it. Too cool!

      Sorry that’s a Note 3 clone, I don’t support that phone nor recommend rooting but if you really want to root it, try Towelroot.

    Hi Max,
    Will this rom work on rooted n900 / 3g with official kitkat 4.4.2
    If so .. can i flash it with odin ??

    • Max Lee says:

      Yes but you need to root, install CWM recovery, then install the ROM. Cannot use ODIN to install ROMs, well sometimes but not recommended.
