I've bought this device in Amazon about half a year ago. Got it rooted, with the sticker under the battery saying I9300, but it shows I747 when windows attempts to automatically install a driver.

If I want to install CM / custom rom, which version should I use? (see image)
Is it worth the risk? (I'm afraid the device will stop working)

Regardless, if I decide to install CM on the phone (either version), can I now create a Nandroid backup and restore later in case I screw the device?

Check in the i747 forum for a advice, it definitely isn't an i9300 so anything from here will hard brick it.

It is the AT&T version of the S3 not the international one, so when trying to install a custom ROM get a one appropriate for this device
