First, you will get a ton of Note 3 apps, just like how it is on a Note 3 along with awesome stuff like Note 3 aircommand, that allows you to make floating windows. And don’t forget, with any Android 4.3 TouchWiz ROM such as this one, you can use Galaxy Gear smartwatch with it.

Overall, I am very impressed with Tiagra ROM as it’s going to get your Note 2 converted into a Note 3 as much as possible. And the good news is that all Note 3 apps run without any lag, in fact they run very smooth and fast.

How to install the Tigra ROM

Well, here’s a universal install guide for those of you who don’t know how to install custom ROM.

Before we begin, go ahead and make sure you make a backup of your apps, SMS, contacts, etc.

Step 1. All custom ROMs come in a zip file format.  Usually there’s 1 or 2 files you will need.  So, go ahead and download the ROM zip file(s).  In this example, I will be installing a custom ROM called Space X, so I downloaded, which is the ROM file.  Copy the whole file (DO NOT UNZIP) to the internal storage or microSD card of your Note 2.

Step 2. Turn off your Note 2.  Then boot into CWM Recovery by holding down Volume Up, Center Home, and the Power buttons together.

Step 3. Before you go any further, make sure you made at least one backup ROM.  If you didn’t, please see How to Backup/Restore ROM on Galaxy Note 2 before preceding!!!

Next, use the Volume buttons to choose “wipe data/factory reset” and hit the Power button.  This will erase all of your settings, apps, etc…  However it will not erase anything on your internal storage/microSD card such as photos and videos.

Step 4. Next choose “install zip from sdcard”.

Step 5. Next choose either “choose zip from sdcard” (if you copied the ROM zip file to internal storage) or “choose zip from external sdcard” (if you copied the ROM zip file to microSD card).

Step 6. Browse your file system on Note 2 and find the ROM zip file.  If you have ROM zip file and Gapps zip file, choose the ROM zip file first. Choose the file.

Step 7. Choose “Yes”.

Installation should take around 5 minutes.

Step 8. Once done installing ROM, you can also install additional files need by repeating Steps 4-7).  For example, you can install your Gapps zip file here.

Step 9. Lastly but not least, choose “wipe cache partition” from main menu.  This will erase the “cache” partition, which are basically just temporary files and doing this may help prevent unwanted bootloops.

Step 10. Choose “Reboot system now” to reboot.

Step 11. The first boot will take around 5 minutes.  You should see a welcome screen pop up.  If so, congratulations, you’ve successfully installed your first custom ROM!

Step 12. Now, go ahead and restore all of your apps, SMS, contacts. And your ROM has been installed. Enjoy all the Note 3 features on your Note 2 with this update.
