So I Got Fed Up With Touch Wiz And Replaced It With Paranoid Android

After the Jelly Bean update my Samsung Galaxy Note did not really function like it was when using ICS.  It started to lagged and applications often would shut down unexpectedly.  It really did get on my nerves a few times.

Initially I was reluctant to change into using a custom ROM because it was still under warranty but I could not take any more of the lag that the Jelly Bean had caused on my device I started researching about custom ROMs and how to install them.

After a couple of hours exploring Google’s search results and the XDA forum I shortlisted two custom ROMs, Paranoid Android and PACman.

Both ROMs are nearly similar but I went ahead with Paranoid Android.  Why? Well I just like the Paranoid Android name better haha.  I love the Pie function which is both available in the two custom ROMs above.  I haven’t quite figured out how to utilize the Halo function yet.  Got some reading to do about it.  I thought I had it figured out but it seems there’s more to it than it seems.

I haven’t had much experience tinkering with smartphones and the likes.  So basically it was quite daunting at first.  I read lots of tutorials and some we’re quite confusing.  To much explanation and walls of text.

Luckily I found DroidViews.  It listed out how to install custom ROMs on a Samsung Galaxy Note.  The steps and explanations there we’re presented nicely and simple to understand.  A hearty thank you to that particular Android blog.

It’s has been about two weeks since I’ve been using Paranoid Android custom ROM and I’m getting to love more and more by the day.  The lag issues have long gone and applications opened and ran smoothly it ever did.  I’ve even started to play more and more games on my device.
