    I don't think this has anything to do with the manufacturer.

    For flashing ROMs you need an unlocked bootloader and either TWRP or CWM.

    You need a recover such as twrp or cwm.

    When flashing a ROM follow the instructions in the ROM thread.

    If you use the method linked above when you are done you will have twrp as your recovery. And your current stock rooted version will be your boot rom. If that bricks on you....you put a Rom on ext sd and flash that via recovery.

    There is also a method to get back to stock. Another thread over there.

    Thanks for the information but I would really prefer if I could find something like USD lite for my note 2 so if I brick my device I could always flash it with the original .img and reroot it or have a recovery like hashcodes recovery for the Motorola series

    Maybe things are different now, but when I had the Motorola Droid X I used CWM.

    I used the Droid 2 and Droid X bootstrap made by CWM that allowed me to install CWM.

    I was a bit disappointed that unlocking the Note 2 wasn't as simple, but it wasn't difficult either.
