Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for Verizon, Jelly Bean 4.2.2 LiquidSmooth ROM
Many people who choose an Android device, do so because they enjoy being able to customize their smartphones and tablets. Although the use of custom ROMs is not for everyone, there will be many readers who really like using custom firmware. If you have the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605 for Verizon, you may will appreciate details of the latest LiquidSmooth Build 2.5 custom ROM based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
LiquidSmooth ROMs offer a smooth and responsive experience befitting the name and based on AOSP, although we must point out that this is after market custom firmware, and not official firmware from Samsung or Google. LiquidSmooth Build 2.5 has recently released and is noted to be fast and stable, but as it is still in development we cannot rule out the possibility of minor bugs. However, any such issues are likely to be smoothed out in further progressions.
Some of the main benefits and key features of LiquidSmooth Build 2.5 include Google GCC 4.7 Toolchain, C++11 Mode, -O3 Strict-Aliasing (Linaro), customizable lockscreen buttons and sliders, the Chronus clock widget, customizable hardware and software keys, customizable navbar ring, nofitfication power widget and much more. Please remember that these details are for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 I605, the Verizon variant of the phone, so please do not try to use this ROM for any other model or device.
At Phones Review we never recommend the use of custom ROMs, and if you choose to go ahead then you do so at your own risk, and if anything goes wrong it is entirely your responsibility. However, as we said, we know that many of our readers get a lot of pleasure from customizing their devices, and so we do try to bring you news on popular custom ROMs from time to time.
Before you begin there are certain pre-requisites, such as backing up your important data and turning on the USB Debugging mode if it is disabled. You should also ensure that you have at least 80% battery power on your device before you begin flashing a custom ROM, to avoid the risk of bricking the phone if it turns off during the installation. Another thing to note is that your Galaxy Note 2 I605 should be carrier unlocked and should also have an unlocked bootloader. You will also need the latest Galaxy Note 2 I605 USB drivers installed on your PC.
