Exclamation [Q] SM-N9007 (Aus/Optus) KitKat

Don't know if any body has noticed, but kit kat seems to have been sneakily released for us australia note 3 holders of the n9007 model.
I don't know if its available officially yet, as I can't check because I rooted the 4.3 firmware, however I am currently downloading the 4.4.2 firmware from sammobile.

Now this leads to my actual question,
Seeing as we now have the 4.4.2 firmware and modem, would we be able to flash n9005 roms onto our n9007 note 3's and simply swap the modem?

I read somewhere that someone had success flashing, with everything working except the modem.

If any other n9007 would like to hit up the new firmware and share feedback that'd be great

I've done this on many N9005 custom roms without any issues (NO MODEM ISSUE to speak of). All you need to do is update to 4.4.2 for the N9007 so that you have the kitkat bootloader and modem then you can flash any of the N9005 custom roms as you please. I've flashed these roms in the past without any issue (ASSASSINROM V4, CRASH ROM V13, N9005XXUGNG1_DevBase_alexndr.zip AND CRASH ROM V15 CURRENT)

So you can use 9005 ROMs even if you have a 9007 as long as it's 4.4.2?

In short yes. The baseband of your 9007 must match the 9005 custom rom you want to use ie. to use 9005 custom rom on 4.4.2 you need to upgrade your 9007 to 4.4.2 first.
