If you mean custom ROMs based on the GPE firmwares, yes. There are anywhere from just simply rooted/stock GPE ROMs to fairly pimped out and customized/customizable GPE ROMs.

If, however, you mean fully converted... bootloader, modems, 100% stock recovery and able to receive OTA updates... no.

Full conversion like the htc one not possible?

I want to say someone successfully flashed the GPE stock recovery; but that was quite a while ago that I saw that posted. I don't remember how far along they were able to get as far as the actual conversion. I don't honestly understand the big deal of the whole thing other than just to be able to say you did it. Running the custom GPE ROMs is just as good; and if desired, one could perform an unroot and have the phone nearly identical to a 'fresh off the shelf' 9505g...

Recovery and system you can. Everything else (bootloader, modems, etc) will fail. Bootloaders on these phones do a check and reject anything not specifically meant for it model wise exceppt for recovery and system for somereason. I tried out of boredom to convert to an i9505 and didnt work out so well. I got the modems to flash tho which ended in absolutely no service.
