I read that someone flashed the note 2 Kitkat rom and it worked well bar hardware like wifi and bluetooth. Why don't we just do the same with American s3 rom and make the little optimizations for the international version? I wouldn't imagine there's to much of a difference bar memory

Note II is a lot closer to GT-I9300 than it is Sprint S3.

wrong thread.

But the reason why it's being ported from the note 2 is because the s3 shares the same CPU/GPU as it. Only main difference is the extra GB of ram.

Porting from the LTE GS3 would be next to impossible due too the fact that the CPU isn't even from the same manufacture.
