How To: Install PanaroidAndroid ROM On Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 [TUTORIAL]

PanaroidAndroid brings a beautiful interface on Android smartphones. Now the beauty can be enjoyed on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 thanks to XDA Developers’ member Androguide.fr. The ROM also brings Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

The ROM is still new, and needs a lot of polishing. CyanogenMod 10 was the base when this ROM was created, so the issues in CM10 will also be present in this ROM. There are reports that the soft buttons have to be enabled by going to Settings > Navigation Bar, as they may not show up after initially booting the tablet.
