Early Preparations
1. This is only for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7105 [LTE]

This custom ROM is only for the device mentioned above. Make sure that your model number matches the one listed above. To do so, go to Settings > About Device on your device and see your model number. Flashing this ROM on any other device will result in bricking it so make sure that you meet this requirement first of all.

2. Battery should be charged at least over 60%

Make sure that your battery is charged enough to complete the flashing process. In case your battery is low and your device goes dead during the flashing process, you may end up soft bricking your device as it won’t complete the flashing process.

3. Flash a Custom Recovery

A custom recovery is required for flashing this ROM. You may flash TWRP recovery using this guide.

4. Backup everything!

Just to be on the safe side, you may consider backing up each and everything from your Android device. This is highly recommended so that in case anything goes wrong, you still have the access to all of your data and you can restore it immediately. You may backup everything as listed below.

5. Disclaimer

The methods involved in flashing custom recoveries, ROMs and rooting your phone are highly custom and may result in bricking your device, and has nothing to do with Google or the device manufacturer that is SAMSUNG in our case. Also rooting your device will void its warranty and you will be no longer eligible for any kind of free device services by the manufacturers/warranty providers. In case of any mishap we may not be held responsible. If your device has the Knox counter on the bootloader, it will be tripped and you won’t be able to reset it ever. Follow these instructions to the letter to avoid any mishap or bricking. Make sure that whatever you do, you are doing it at your own responsibility.

    thank you

    • @disqus_H7bD5peQzJ:disqus No, it won’t work.
      Stay connected with us for a ROM for your device. We will post that soon.

      • Alex Fergusson

        As I said in another post I just installed it on my N7105T. It does work. You just need to flash N7105 stock firmware to turn it into an N7105 first.

    • Alex Fergusson

      @disqus_H7bD5peQzJ:disqus This does work for the GT-N7105T if you flash stock GT-N7105 firmware first.

  • fayz

  • William Villacampa

    same with me here,im stuck at samsung logo, wipe cache/dalvik cache before reboot but nothing happens,when i hit reboot it stuck at samsung logo…do i have to take out the battery and switch on…pls help…thanks…

    • @williamvillacampa:disqus flash stock firmware to recover your device.
      Please mention which recovery you used to flash this ROM, also make sure that you performed a clean installation.

      • William Villacampa

        i’ve used TWRP 2.8.4.0 and perform a clean install, wipe cache/dalvik cache,thats all…

        • @williamvillacampa:disqus what’s your device model number?

      • William Villacampa

        i am using TWRP 2.8.4.0 to flash the ROM then wipe cache/dalvik cache….but some says should use philztouch recovery…which is which…?

      • William Villacampa

        im using TWRP 2840 to flash the ROM, wipe cache/dalvik cache…

      • William Villacampa

        i am using twrp 2840 to flash the ROM then wipe cache/dalvik cache…

    • @williamvillacampa:disqus you have to make sure that you’re performing a clean install. Reset your device to factory, flash TWRP / CWM and then flash this ROM.

  • William Villacampa

    im using TWRP 2.8.4.0 to flash the ROM…thanks…

  • William Villacampa

    i’ve used TWRP 2.8.4.0 and perform a clean install, wipe cache/dalvik cache

  • William Villacampa

    im using twrp to flash the rom,wipe cache/dalvik cache…some says should use cwm recovery…which is which…?

    • @williamvillacampa:disqus use CWM or TWRP, but make sure that you use latest one.

  • @williamvillacampa:disqus then try using TWRP 2.7.1.0 and see if it resolves your issue or not.

  • @disqus_lL1GjyxXnQ:disqus just follow the tutorial carefully and it won’t brick your phone.

  • Alex Fergusson

    The current one works on the GT-N7105T if you flash GT-N7105 stock firmware first. Just tried it.

  • Cut Putri Ayasofia

    hi Usama,

    I did exactly as instructed, but im stuck at the samsung logo. it appeared to be the new samsung start up screen, but it just stays there. anything I missed? and its my fault to push factory reset button, so other recovery file is wiped. what should I do now? my phone is damage???

    • @cutputriayasofia:disqus flash latest stock fimrware on your device and then try flashing this ROM from scratch again. Your phone is safe and sound, nothing to worry about. Just follow this guide carefully.

  • Cut Putri Ayasofia

    is this will work?
    so before flashing dn4 we should back to original firmware and do not root this phone?

    • Alex Fergusson

      If you are asking about the N7105T then don’t flash original N7105T firmware. Flash stock N7105 firmware from Sammobile. It will work fine on the N7105T. Then check if the phone says N7105 and not N7105T at the start screen and in the about device section. If it does flashing dn4 should work fine.

  • @goldiep:disqus i am not sure about the N7105T variant, but as alex’s last line says, you need to flash stock firmware of N7105 prior to flashing this firmware on your device. I highly recommend that create an EFS backup and Nandroid backup before you do this.

  • Shubham Patil

    i have samsung note 2 n7105 updated to android 5.1.1 lollipop via cm-12 …..
    will this will work in it i mean android 5.1.1 conversion to 4.4.???????

    • @disqus_5AUI0Z1gIN:disqus yes this will work. Good Luck.

  • Prince Lasco

    It keeps saying “Unfortunately,system ui has stopped working.

  • @djfunnybone:disqus You will have to revert back to your stock ROM for now. I’ll checkout if I find a fix, and let you know.

    • “DJ Funnybone”

      Back to stock isn’t a nice answer.
      I’ve flashed the original DN4 v2.2 from electron team’s hp. Works perfectly on my t0lte.
      Only proxymity sensor has a bug. Does not response @ phone mode…
      Thank you anyway

      • @djfunnybone:disqus At the time of writing the post, the initial version did not carry this fix. However I’ll check the official link and update the post with the latest version of this ROM. Thank you for letting us know.

  • @pishangujeniya:disqus For now flash stock firmware and fix your device. I will look for a fix and update you shortly.

    Hi!
    I
    installed the last available ROM in website: DN4_v2 for lte(2).zip and
    the DN4v2-Note2LTE-v1.1-OPEN.zip addon and as I see, this is the best
    ROM which I tried ever in my phone (N7105)
    But
    there is an issue: VPN connect to cysco VPN (IPSec Xauth PSK) is not
    works with this rom. Because this is all-important for me, I cannot use
    this great ROM. Is there anybody who can help me to solve this problem?

  • Curious Kid Inside

    Hello gud day. The prospect of having this ROM is really high and I am so dying to get it but I have already have installed a cyanogenmod custom ROM running on lollipop. Question: how can I install this on a lollipop running android ver or do I have to downgrade back to the kitkat to do this and if yes then how do I do that because it was my cousin who upgraded my phone and he only taught me how he did it in the most simple way. Need your help and really appreciate it.

    • @curiouskidinside:disqus
      Sorry for getting back to you late. Since i’m busy with my final exams, I merely get time to come up here and have a look at the queries.

      Since you’re running on CyanogenMod custom ROM, you only need to flash the latest available KitKat ROM to first restore your phone to stock. After that you’re good to go with it and flash this ROM on your phone.

      • Curious Kid Inside

        I really didnt realize that u were still in college like me. I’m really sorry to have pressured you to reply hastily but either ways I really appreciate it. I will try to flash it back to stock and try the tutorials again. Thanks again for replying.

  • Curious Kid Inside

    it is sad that i went over all the instructions and followed it religiously and ended up on the download link for the [DN4 V2 For LTE Devices.zip] just to find that the file doesn’t exist anymore. 🙁 went to the other sites that gives instructions on how to flash the DN4 ROM but ended up with anemia after nose bleeding with all the tech jargon they used and back here to rank and beg for someone to even notice my post and hopefully help me on this problem. already posted a different issue before with my custom rom being cyanogen 12 and running on android lollipop but no luck on the respond. either techbeast haven’t read me post or is just not interested in helping a newbie. well, here’s hoping.

    • @curiouskidinside:disqus the link has been updated. I apologize once again for the delayed response. Let me know if you need any further help. Best of luck 🙂

  • Curious Kid Inside

    Hi there! I’m really sorry to be bothering you so much. It’s me Curious Kid Inside from Disqus. I went to download the stock firmware for my phone model on the Samsung Updates website but unfortunately bother the link don’t have the file anymore. Went over the internet finding the stock firmware but just couldn’t find any. You don’t happen to have one laying around your cloud or something? Would be a great help. You’ve been really helpful and I can’t express how much I appreciate it but let me take advantage of the moment. I have a Samsung Note 2 GT-N7105 t0lte N7105XXUFND3
    ############
    The one on the bottom of the list (on the picture attached) is mine but is it possible to use any of those others above as long as I have the same model number?
