Jelly Bean Paranoid Android Now Available for Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000
Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 owners, we’ve got some great news for you. Jelly Bean-based Paranoid Android is now available for the Galaxy Note. Whether you are simply looking for a custom Jelly Bean ROM, or want a ROM that lets you get the most out of that large screen, Paranoid Android is definitely worth a shot.
In case you haven’t came across it already, Paranoid Android is a unique CyanogenMod-based custom ROM available for several Android devices that allows you to change the DPI and layout of your device on a per-app basis. This allows you to run apps in tablet, phone or a unique hybrid mode on any device, be it a tablet, a phone or a phablet like the Note. This can come especially handy on devices with large screens like the Note, as it helps you utilize the extra screen real estate to the fullest, giving you the flexibility of choice for the various display modes available.
This source-built port for the Galaxy Note is brought to us by XDA Senior Member Utacka, and it incorporates no ROM-level changes. It uses Project LARD, which is an implementation of Jelly Bean drivers for Samsung devices for bringing smooth, Project Butter-like performance to them.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
