Note 5/S6 Edge Plus Hybrid Norma ROM for Galaxy Note 3!


Note 5 was released not too long ago and we are starting to see some of the new Note 5 features rolling into Note 3 custom ROMs.  While the Note 5 Air Command still needs some time to port over to Note 3, you can still enjoy many of the new Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus features through the Norma ROM.

This ROM can be installed on many Note 3 models including the SM-N9005, SM-N9006, SM-N9008, Japanese/Korean Note 3, Sprint SM-N900P, and T-Mobile SM-N900T/Canadian SM-N900W8.  Note NFC is broke for T-Mobile and Canadian but otherwise everything else works fine.

Based on latest Android 5.0.2, Norma ROM brings you goodies like People Edge and Apps Edge and edge screen functionality just like on the new S6 Edge Plus.  Not only that, you will also be able to enjoy the Galaxy S6 camera right on your Note 3 along with double-press home shortcut, just like a Note 5/S6 Edge Plus/S6.  You will find the latest Note 5 icons along with ability to change your grid size and also 100% access to Samsung TouchWiz theme store.

Other nifty features include slight customization of UI through Norma settings in Settings menu along with Viper4Android.

    Can it work on Indian galaxy note 3 n900

  2. Matt says:

    Hi, there are no edge options on my 9005. I see the little strap on the right side but can’t use it.

  3. Jason says:

    Wasn’t able to install. Sprint Note 3 with latest stock firmware (5.0 Stagefright patch). Loaded TWRP 4.4 via ODIN, made backup downloaded .tar file. I used TWRP to install and followed the directions from your video. After install, It tries to boot but gets stuck on the initial splash screen, then boots into recovery. I tried to do another system reboot and I get a warning “Warning- No OS Installed!” I tried reistalling from that point to no avail. I was able to recover my stock ROM so no emergencies. Any Suggestions?

    Hey Max, I had seen this ROM on XDA, but still can’t decide whether I should switch to this.
    I am currently using Darklord Rom on N900A, And I am very happy with this ROM, no complaints except some unimportant lags. What do you suggest? Also Have you tested HTC M9 camera port on N900A?

  5. Glen says:

    Installed the rom but it looks like the radio is a little whack after install. My note 3 had full bars before installing now I seem to be lucky to have 2. Will try and ready flash radio.

  6. derant Barrett says:

    It is stable enough, gave me a fight took me 3 hours to realize my data was either incompatible or backed up bad from darklord v2 I had to restore only apps then manually log in to most apps, has a bit of a lag comparing to darklord but will continue to use it.

    Am I only 1 with video recording problems on the s6 roms?
    Any fix/mod for gaining vid recording?

    • Insane.modder says:

      I can’t record video either I’m searching for a fix for this but I suspect it’s because my bootloader is 4.4.2

  8. Raziel says:

    • Raziel says:

  9. derant Barrett says:

  10. Alizare says:

    Hi. I installed this rom on my n9005. Its cool but sometimes laggy. Also the touch in stock rom was really faster.

  11. shayan says:

    hello there thanks for every single update and effort you are putting for your websites , i have been using the rom since 2 weeks i guess !! it is laggy and freezes !!! dont know whats the issue any updates for the rom ???

    • derant Barrett says:

      I flashed some of the darklords mods with it + use different launcher & freeze both touchwiz + some other apps that made the lag extreme maybe it can work for you, no pop-up saying what has stopped made it less laggy

      • shayan says:

        will give it a shot but so far doesnt look it will work !! damn this was supposed to make my device work faster and better but in made it worse !!

        • Alizare says:

          Hey shayan .I had your problem too. try installing darklord s6 port rom. Its really nice and smooth. I heard darklord Is also porting note 5 rom for note 3 . soon there will be good news. 🙂 chakerim!

          • shayan says:

            Good day , Mochakram !!

        • derant Barrett says:

          I guess it work for me, was it a buildprop zip & the lock screen zip?
          I didn’t put anything extra apart from Dolby zip & Thor boot screen + I did some extra on the build prop but don’t think made that much of a difference. Sorry as well if extra messed it up I experimented a lot with it so I know the full mess it can turn into.

  12. romeo says:

    Its laggy and not that responsive to touch… i can turn on the wifi and connect it but i cant browse and use the internet…

  13. MLima says:

    Norma v15 is out:

    Phronesis v2 may be the best version out there. Said to be lag free:

    “Work flawlessly on N900W8. Just flash tMobile version in aroma mod.”

  14. Kadir Kad says:

    Hi Just Installed this Rom and everything works fine as said but a little bit laggy. The only problem i have is with my email setup. I want to use MS Exchange server to use my school’s account. But after setting up my school’s account, it prompts me to update security settings. when i tap the notification, it takes me no where. 🙁 Researched alot and couldnt get it fixed ao finally posting here.

  15. Swagg says:

  16. imnotok says:

    Hi there…. after many time try to search and experiment. It little bit faster if use arter97 v 8.0 (not 8.1) or darkqueen v.0.9.2 kernel. Sorry for my bad english

  17. Matt says:

    After a couple of weeks I need to say, that V13 is with batterlife very good – with stock kernel. With the alternate kernel it was draining as hell.. after some days it started to be very laggy and not responsive. Any idea why?

    Anyway, this rom replaced my stock rom and I am very happy.

    Installed today V15 of this rom and stock kernel. It is a dream.

  21. Gabor says:

    Hi, Max. Here is the custom Rom which has the Note 5 s-pen features and the S6 camera and the S6 edge edge option and its running on Android 5.1.1. You should make more updates for Note 3 device roms too ven your busy with new devices. This is for the SM-N9005 4G LTE model.

  22. yusuf says:

    is there any hope for a fix for the video recording in sm-n900w8 models? I don’t know if the video recording is a universal issue or only with this specific model. its an amazing rom the only problem is the video recorder not working which means no snapchat…

  23. manoj says:

    It is very laggy. Takes 4-5 hours for full charge, and discharge on 6-7 hours on normal use.
