    I suppose it depends on what causes your random reboots...

    On CM11s 38R, most of them are caused by a kernel bug related to the Wifi and a fix has been commited on October 22nd :

    I cannot answer for Slimkat, unfortunately.

    SlimKAT may fix random reboots, but only if they are software related. Reboots can happen due to hardware issues too, in which case a different ROM is going to make no difference whatsoever.
    the best thing to do is to try it out, it's unlikely to make things worse (unless you really screw up the process)

    GApps are all the Google Apps without the GApps zip you wont have such stuff hangouts, gmail, calendar, playstore etc

    SlimKAT doesnt use CM kernel - they have their own, so if the reboots are caused by a kernel bug then SlimKat should fix it

    I've been using your ROM since my Nexus S, through a Galaxy S2 and a Nexus 4. I'll be using it too when I'll receive my opo \o/. I'm really glad you officially support this device. Thanks!

    I should also point out that the I have been running SlimKat for a few weeks (8.6 weekly, 8.8 and now 8.9 weekly) and not had a single random reboot (tried some others to see if I fancied something different after using SlimKat on my Note 2 since January/February last year, but liked none of the other official builds and unless i have a spare phone to play with, I am not going to go with an unofficial from an "enthusiastic amateur" as my daily daily driver)

    Hi. Quick question: does slimkat support use of the s-pen on the note 2?
    I have cm11 linaro on my N2 and lost all s-pen functions.
    Really miss them as i use the N2 with PS Touch for photo editing of pictures taken with the OnePlus.

    I'm still on cm11s 38R. I will probably try this rom as I liked Slim on my GS3.

    There are apps that can emulate the spen functionality - cm s pen addon, spen launcher, papyrus, note Buddy.
    But the fancy sPen stuff needs stock or a stock based ROM such as ditto note 3v5.2

    Did you do a complete wipe? Which build version did you use? I an on weekly 8.9, 8.8 was really buggy I had multi touch issues with it.
    I am using the modular gapps file too.
