    Hmm.... I've been wanting to root my Note II and/or put a custom ROM on it for sometime now. I'll have to check this out some more first. As for the stock ROM issue, I don't see it as a big problem. It's impossible to take into account all the unique ROMS. Putting it back to stock theoretically ensures know constants.
