C-ROM + Lean Kernel for Galaxy Note 3!


For this week’s Note 3 ROM of the Week, check out C-ROM along with Lean Kernel, available for T-Mobile, Sprint, Canadian, and SM-N9005.

UPDATE: There’s is a newer version, please CLICK HERE to see it instead of this!!!

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, C-ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) that brings you a ton of customization, On-The-Go-Mode, and more features than you can expect.  Couple the ROM with Lean Kernel for some awesome 2.726Ghz overclocking and excellent battery life.

What’s cool about C-ROM?

I have been personally running C-ROM on many of my other Android smartphones and this is one ROM that brings many of the favorite features from other AOSP ROMs.  Just think of it as a melting pot of all AOSP ROMs with every feature you can think of baked in.

Inside C-ROM customization settings, you will find many goodies like PIE Controls, HALO, Appbar, Gesture Anywhere, Driving Mode, OmniSwitch, Active Display, custom animation, LCD Density changer and lots more.  Also On-The-Go-Mode is available for those of you who commute often in highly-trafficked areas like New York City.

Need shortcuts?  The C-ROM offers high level of shortcuts including PIE Controls, Appbar, OmniSwitch, Navigation bar, 8-slider targets for Lockreen, and more.

    Nobody figured it out “how to turn screen off/on during call” option in these kind of roms… Great job done.

    Hey Max! Everything looks beautiful but I don’t have a keyboard. I can’t type/sign into anything at all. Please help buddy.

    • Dean says:

      I have the same problem. Great ROM ** EXCEPT ** for this.
      I’ve uninstalled and stopped using it, as it’s useless without
      a keyboard.

      Any help Max? Thanks!

    Hi Max The Rom did work for me.. Note3 T-Mobile SM-N900T Lean Kernel
    installed it with no problems did the updates when you first boot it up install trickster mod try to overclock it got it to 27 in trickster mod and in the rom itself. The highest score I can get in quadrant was 9391. I get better scores then that on my galaxy s2. On my other note 3 stock my scores in Quadrant are 22701. Also when I first boot the phone its really sluggish for the first 30 to 40 seconds.

    All the “google” roms are them same and they all suck! Tw is the way to go with the gnote3, who buys a gnote3 and roots it to put a shity battery draining cm or aokp rom?

  14. tim says:

    Hey max I’ve been using c-rom on my sprint note 3 for about a week now and it’s been running beautifully. Very smooth and very fast but for the past couple of days it won’t let me set a wallpaper. I’ll set it but then like 5 minutes later it goes back to the stock wallpaper. Is this a common problem? It may seem like a small problem but it’s very annoying to me.

  15. Charles says:

    If you’re having keyboard issues you probably didn’t install gaaps.

    Hey Max I’m running C-Rom+lean kernel on my Sprint Galaxy Note 3. The only problem I’m having is when watching video on Facebook in landscape mode it crashes and reboots my phone. Also gapps update comes up and when I update gapps I lose function of my back space and menu buttons so I revert back to the original gapps.
    Help me Max please?

    Hi Max

    How does one install a kernel on its own?
    I’m running x-note which I really like, but want to test out other kernels though.
    And start over clocking my notes.

    • Max Lee says:

      You can grab them on XDA forums, google “Note 3 XDA” to find, then download the kernel and install just like a ROM.
