My Take on The Beanstalk Rom for the Galaxy Note 1 N7000
I tried so hard to resist the urge to flash a custom rom on my note N7000 but as people on XDA forums always say "my flashing finger was itchy" so i couldn't resist anymore.
The first rom i tried was the one i trust most and the one i knew wouldn't disappoint me: Cyanogenmod 10.1 which is built on Android 4.2.1 Jellybean and i have to say it was up to my expectations a clean interface, stable radio and smooth.
But after a couple of days I wanted to get more customizations for example the transparent status bar and it was really hard to get it done on Cyanogenmod 10.1 so I decided to search for a different rom that allows more customizations. As usual i started doing my research surfing through the XDA forums sifting through different threads while checking on youtube for rom hands on until i found BeanStalk Build 4.3.1001 which is built on android 4.3
I flashed the rom and i was surprised how fast and smooth it is, not only that but it's full of different functions and customizations that i didn't expect will be all included in one rom.
I have been using it as a daily driver for more than a week now and so far it's been great. No random reboots, strong signal, not laggy and a long battery life.
Worth mentioning that if you post about any problem you are having with the rom in the thread you'll get a prompt reply which is a good support for the rom.
