The latest Asylum-Omni KitKat 4.4.2 rom was updated by Team Asylum 4 days ago for the Galaxy Note (N7000). The rom is signed as 20140106 version.

Previously I was on the earlier version of KitKat 4.4 and 4.4.1 Asylum-Omni rom which ran relatively OK but definitely still lacking something, and not the smoothest. So I flashed back to Slimrom 4.3.1 version and waited for KitKat rom to be more stable before I jump in again.

With this latest release (20140106), the Asylum-Omni 4.4.2 KitKat custom rom has reached the maturity needed, after several tweaked versions before it.

Those who yet to update to this version of Android KitKat can now safely go in to flash it as stable daily use. The common steps to flash this Asylum-Omni ROM is highlighted by a few people such as below,

Just go to the web and search for the guide
(Of course your device should be rooted first with a recovery ROM).

My choice is NOT going for the Raw Kernel as highlighted above, I just downloaded the Asylum-Omni KitKat 4.4.2 rom zip file and PA-Gapps zip file, coupled with flashing the latest Update-SuperSU v.1.8.6 with the base stock (CM) kernel.

As I was coming from the Slimrom 4.3.1 version, I needed to do the full data wipe and advanced Dalvik cache wipe in the process.

Initial impression of this rom has been very good. It runs very smoothly without any issue. The difference with the earlier KitKat v.4.4.1 was rather distinct in that the 4.4.1 was slow and subjected to force close often.

Even I under clocked my Galaxy Note to 1.2GHz (max, for battery saving) the UI experience is fluid. Games such as Temple Run 2, Pinball Pro, Ninjump Delux etc. are executed fast.

Internet browsing experience is fast too. Camera and video playing remain stable.

The rom already comes with many detailed setting for both UI and system. Coupled with Xposed modules it allows user the fullest tweaking potential…

Will run in this new rom for more length and see how it fairs in many other aspects.

Above: PA-GApps v.20131126 to go with Asylum KitKat rom seems a good match. All the KitKat features are there and run smoothly.
