Before getting started with the installation ensure that your Note 2 meets the following set of requirements.

Key points:

3- Your Note 2 should have above 80% battery. Due to lack of battery the phone might shut down during the process which in turn could damage the device.

4- The Note 2 should be rooted and have the latest version of recovery installed.

5- The latest build of Team UB ROM works with Galaxy Note 2 N7100 only. Applying this on any incorrect variant might brick the device. Verify the model number of the smartphone by navigating to Settings>> About phone>> Model number and install firmware based on the model number of the device.

7- After the ROM is installed, leave the device for at least 10 minutes, before using it, for a better user experience.

8- IBTimes UK will not be held liable for any damage to the device.
