Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5110 comes with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS out of the box unlike its LTE brother which runs Android 4.2.2. But owners of the non-LTE Galaxy Note 8 can skip Android 4.2.2 version on their device and go straight to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean using CyanogenMod 10.2 build.
The CyanogenMod 10.2 build features Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version, new customisation tools, theme engine and updated focal camera app. Moreover, the device will get Bluetooth Low Energy, restricted profiles in the control user account and TRIM feature which prevents sluggishness overtime.
Warning: This is a custom ROM and we are not liable for any damages which may occur on your device. Read and follow the instructions carefully to avoid damaging your device. Do this at your own risk.
- Create a backup of all your personal settings and data files on the Galaxy Note 8 GT-N5110.
- Double check if the battery level is at least 50 per cent to avoid power interruption.
- Download and Install the necessary USB drivers on your computer.
- Enable USB debugging mode on your device. Go to "Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging."
- Root the device and install a custom recovery such as ClockworkMod Recovery.

2. Copy the CM10.2 firmware and the Google Apps package then paste them to the SD card of your device.
3. Disconnect the Note and turn it off.
4. Reboot into recovery mode by pressing and holding the volume up, power and home keys altogether till the Samsung logo appears.
5. Use the volume keys to navigate around and select options by hitting the power key.
6. Inside the recovery mode, create a Nandroid backup of the current ROM. Select "backup and restore > backup." Restore the ROM with the save process anytime you desire.
7. Now perform a full wipe on the Galaxy Note 8 by selecting "wipe data/factory reset" and "wipe cache partition." Then go back to the main menu and select "advance > wipe Dalvik cache."
8. Install the CM10.2 Android 4.3 firmware you have copied earlier by selecting "install zip from SD card > choose zip from SD card." Choose the custom ROM and confirm installation. Apply the same with Google Apps package.
9. After the installation, go back to the main menu and select "reboot system now." The first boot may take up to 5 minutes to complete; be patient.
