The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 hasn't received a lot of loving. In fact, if you take a stroll through the XDA Developers Forum, you'll notice that there are only two pages of threads. It's a bit disappointing, but that doesn't stop XDA Developers member darkthug420 from working on a ROM he'd subbed JellyNote.
The ROM is still in beta and is based on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. It is one of the first attempts of developers to breathe life into this tablet. It's been debloated of apps and if you've hated TouchWiz, you'll be happy to know that it's been replaced by GO Launcher HD. Naturally, JellyNote has been deodexed, zipaligned, rooted and BusyBox'd for your using pleasure.
Also, this ROM reportedly also works on the Wi-Fi-only variant, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013.
