For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 ROM of the week, check out X Note ROM v5.1. You can also install this on T-Mobile SM-N900T or Canadian SM-N900W8 by installing additional files.

Based on latest MJ7 Samsung firmware Android 4.3, X-Note ROM brings you lots of features and none of that bloatware to give you blazing speeds along with great battery life.

First off, latest X-Note ROM now ships with Android 4.4 KitKat launcher with working Google Now cards but you can still use TouchWiz launcher if that’s your preference.

The heart of X-Note ROM is the X-Note Panel in Settings that put together many useful apps such as Floating Pen Window Manager, Multi-Window Manager, LMT Pie Control, CPU monitor, CPU Spy, battery bar, and some more.

For those of you who love wallpapers, X-Note ROM ships with dozens of great wallpapers. You will also be able to enable call recording through Xposed modules. The ROM comes with AllowLongSMS, Xposed App Settings, EnabledCallRecording, Greenify, No Increasing Ringtone, and Xposed Recent Tasks RAM modules. You will have to install the framework, enable the modules and reboot to take advantage of them.

Installation is great for those of you who don’t like bloatware, you can select every app your want/don’t want to install.

    Hello, I have the SM-N9005. What are the available ROMS for my device and why the X-Note Rom is the best compared to the others? Another critical question is if X-Note gets updated (eg v5.3 based on MJ9) , will i be able to update directly from my device or i will have to erase everything and install the new version?

  5. Shiraz says:

    I installed X-Note ROM yesterday, and one thing I don’t like is no ‘Auto scrolling’ for home screens, app and widgets. Do you know how to fix this?

  6. Chris says:

    My camera isnt working or any app that uses a camera is there any fix for this? Im using the Canadian version.

    Hey Max,

    Big fan of your work, have been using for years. I have the T-mobile Note 3 and have tried to install this via the TWRP method a few times.

    I’ve been selecting the additional files with the kernel and radios each time that I go to flash it, and not selecting the kernel that is recommended via the aroma installer. I let the rom sit for a few minutes after initial flash and hitting next, and nothing happens. Ive waited to 40 minutes to ensure that this was not going to change. After battery pull, and booting up, it stays at boot screen for the new rom and does not get past. Any ideas?

  8. Ray says:

    I installed your rom. The wifi doesn’t turn on. It stays at “turning on” but never scans any wifi signals.

  9. Ray says:

    Please help! Wifi doesn’t work on the Rom. Stays at “turning on”. never really turns on though

    Best ROM for Note 3, very stable and great battery life. Everything works once you patch the WiFi fix. Tried them all so far and X-Note and Darthstaker are my favs.

  13. eito says:

  14. lance daclan says:

    I have an unlocked an rooted SM-N9005 XXUBMJ1 and it’s already been region unlocked.
    But my Wind sim card is not working on it. it can detec it, and i also has network bars, but when I try to call it says Not registered on network.
    what do you think the problem is? do you think I have to install wind modem on it? do you still have the files for that.

    best regards

    Tried to install, system froze. Had to remove battery and reboot into recovery. When in recovery I started to wipe cache, dalvik cache, and system but somehow wiped all ROM’s and can’t even find recovery ROM either. Please help ASAP!!! I can’t find a stock rom that I can flash through ODIN because every one is a zip and odin requires tar. Also, my pc on windows 7 won’t recognize my phone so I can’t transfer zipped roms to my phone. How do I get a rom to my phone to flash???

    • Robert H says:

      Do you have an SD card on phone? You must copy the zip file on to the external SD and flash from there. If you copied to just the local partition then you might have deleted everything and that would suck…..

    Hi, been using this version of X-note since December. Awesome ROM and AWESOME GUIDE! However is there any update on a newer version of the ROM yet? If there is please create a guide on how to update. My phone is from Singapore, SM-N9005. Thanks!

  20. Warning says:

    Great rom for the N900W8 after patching with the two extra files, however it completely wiped out all the data on my phone including backups made with titanium backup and twrp

  21. javier says:

    Is there anyway to get build 12 on this rom running on tmo? I read the comments on xda and the creator is saying that installing as is is not recommended as it will fully wipe the internal sd card. Any help would be great.

  22. Mike says:

    When installing it doesn’t have option for a Canadian/us csc.

    How do i change it back to Canadian?

    I think that everything posted made a great deal of sense.
    But, consider this, what if you wrote a catchier title?
    I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, however
    what if you added a title to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean X-Note ROM v5.1 for Galaxy
    Note 3! [SM-N9005/T-Mobile/Canadian] | GalaxyNote3Root.com is
    kinda boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page
    and see how they write news headlines to get viewers to
    click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people excited about
    everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts
    a little bit more interesting.
