Paranoid custom ROMs are the only build which gives a tough and healthy competition to Cyanogen Mod ROMs. The highlighting feature of Paranoid ROM is Pie control. Recently, users also loved the Dynamic System bars which merge your status and navigation bars with the surrounding content and provide a smoother and more immersive experience.

Peek in Paranoid is similar to Ambient Display but it is modified to look more minimal and classy. You can glance at your notifications when pulling your phone out of your pocket right after the notification buzz. You will be offered the same CM 12.1 Theme engine to enhance your system, polish it, quickly make it be just the way you want it to be. Pick from the endless options available on Play Store.

There are Official as well as Legacy Paranoid builds. Today on DroidViews we present you the much awaited Paranoid build for Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. It will just take your tea-time to install this build on your device. With your last sip, you will be done installing the custom ROM. Just follow this guide.


This Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Paranoid  ROM has to be installed on Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 model only.

  • Make sure the device is rooted before going forward for custom ROM installation.
  • Installation of custom ROM requires clearing of memory in the smartphone, so make sure to back all the data by installing TWRP on the smartphone.
  • Users make sure you have installed USB drivers on the PC, or else your smartphone will not be recognized by the computer. Download them from here.
  • Make sure your device has more than 80% battery, or else there is a chance of smartphone getting temporarily bricked if the installation process is interrupted mid-way.
  • Though installing custom ROM improve the device’s performance and UI experiences, it will void your warranty.
