Samsung Galaxy Note Upgrade/Update Experience from 4.0.4 with aftermarket ROMs

It really seems that 4.4.4 is not ready or stable for the i717 yet and this makes sense since it takes a lot of work/development and testing to get the factory stock ROMs working well.  In the end I used the 4.1.2 based Blackstra BlackJelly because it was fast, stable and just works and feels great.  The aftermarket support is great but many devs are focussed on adding features and customization that most of us don't want or need rather than getting things smooth and stable.

 

CandyKat-quincyatt-4.4.4.release.v1.5.7-Official-20140801.zip
Problems:
No sound
Hardware keys don't work
Comments: I don't like the style/layout of the ROM, it is too bare-bones and the sweetener packs don't make sense (just include them).

LS-KK-v3.1-OFFICIAL-quincyatt.zip
Problems:
Random reboot/freeze/crash
H+ no LTE (network eventually stopped working altogether)
Comments: Perfect layout and setup and functionality aside from frequent random freeze/crash/reboots.

BeanStalk-4.4.4007-20140711-quincyatt.zip

Problems:
The only hardware key to work is the "back" button.
Comments

BlackStar BlackJelly ver 2.zip

Problems:
Saw the ATT Logo moving and then it freezes and never booted
.......actually waited a few minutes longer after reboot and it worked.
