XDA Senior Moderator and recognised developer - Chainfire has sprinkled some magic on the Samsung Galaxy Note by releasing the CF-Root - a modified kernel for the Galaxy Note. It isn't a rom per-se but something to get you started with root access and such. The kernel is fully stock and taken from the original firmware, with just the following added:
- Busybox v1.19.2-cm71
- ClockWorkMod Recovery 5
- CWM Manager (see below for more detail)
- Custom boot / init scripts
- Custom boot animations
Head on over to the source below to check out the modified kernel for your Galaxy Note if you've already got it!
