AOKP Jelly Bean Unofficially Ported to Galaxy Note N7000
A few weeks ago, we brought you news that the CyanogenMod 10 Official Preview was released on the Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. We can now also report that AOKP Jelly Bean has unofficially made it’s way to the Galaxy Note, thanks to XDA Senior Member toxicthunder.
The ROM, known as Half-Illusion, is built from the aforementioned CM10 preview build and AOKP nightlie merges. Of course, as with most early Jelly Bean ports, there are still remaining bugs and other issues, but great progress is being made. As toxicthunder says:

If you fancy having an early taste of AOKP Jelly Bean on your Note, head on over to the ROM thread.
