So here it is. I have had the note II since a couple weeks after its release for T-Mobile USA and have loved it since, like most of you I am sure. With that being said, what is the fun of having an android phone without changing some things to make it better?! This is a kernel based off of the Jellybean kernel source straight from Samsung themselves. I finally hit a point I felt worthy of release in this kernel so am doing just that. With that being said it is a long way from where I am sure it will be in the end. I benchmarked it against the stock kernel and MB4 with much higher scores so am pleased with that along with the battery life I am experiencing with it. Hope you all enjoy it and don't be shy to post anything you would like to see added or changed in future releases of this kernel. Thank you all.

I highly recommend doing a full CWM backup of everything as if you were flashing a ROM as this will back up everything including the previous kernel being used prior to flashing this.

The Note II packs its modules with the kernel now including the very important wifi module needed to use wifi so as of now it's looking like I will have to upload multiple zips for each ROM. Just post which ROMs you are using so I can get an idea what boot.img's you guys need exactly so I can post the corresponding flashable zip. If anyone knows of a better method of doing this feel free to let me know.
Prerequisites:

- Root
- CWM Recovery

There are a few steps to flashing this like any other Android Software:

1. Download the zip that matches the version/ROM you are using

2. Place zip on the root of either your internal or external

3. Enter Recovery and perform a CWM backup (optional but highly recommended)

4. Select "flash zip" in recovery and select the zip you downloaded and placed on your sdcard

5. Reboot
