Info 2 Fido SGH-I747M: Safe to use CyanogenMod installer?

Hello Everyone!

I wasn't really getting anywhere with Google or searching on this form so I thought I would ask....

Does anyone know if it is ok to use the CyanogenMod installer for the SGH-I747M (Fido) phone? Can anyone confirm!? If so, was there anything that had to be done to prepare?

When I use the installer is says its supported and recognizes it as "Galaxy S3 (ATT/Canadian)".

It doesn't mention my carrier in the list of supported phones, this is why I'm worried, I don't want to brick the thing! However Fido is owned by Rogers so I would hope that they use the same version phones but when I look at the version number for Rogers on the CyanogenMod S3 supported list its mentions that the model number is "SHG-I747R".

If someones could clarify some things that would be great!

Cheers,
Jake

Personally, I would not use an installer. I believe you are better off installing a custom recovery and manually flashing a custom ROM. Also, I find CM11 is not as customizable as some of the other ROMs.

You can flash any ROM and custom recovery that is designed for the d2lte.

Before starting the process of installing a custom ROM, make note of your phone's current bootloader and baseband. Also, flashing a custom recovery will void your warranty if you are on a 4.3 or 4.4.2 bootloader.
