I have searched and searched and couldn't find any information on the differences between these galaxy mega devices. What I have seen is people saying "don't flash a i9205 or i9200 rom to a l600 device". And my question is what makes these devices so different that would cause them to be bricked? I've seen some AWESOME roms for the i9205 devices and would love to flash it to my l600 with the twrp recovery, but also want to know what differences if any would there be in these devices? The first thing that comes to mind is the fact that the l600 is factory locked to CDMA, but of course with other awesome people here at xda that can fixed. So other than that, are there componet differences, or perhaps drivers that are specific to the i9205 that aren't correct for the l600? I have my l600 running on GSM network with lte even at times, but i'm stuck on the 4.2.2 rom as well. That's why i'm asking this, because if the difference is just the bands used, then I would think that it would be ok to flash a rom for a i9205 galaxy mega to a l600 galaxy mega. Also, would the custom rom touch my modem messing up the changes I made to the band selection? Thanks!
