Hello guys. I want to ask can we flash a M8 rom to E8?
They both have the same hardwares on them. So is it possible?

No. Not without certain tweaks anyway, because their model numbers etc differ. And also the camera module is different. They don't have exactly similar hardware.

Yeeah you are right. But the developers can build the roms based on M8 easily right?

I'm not a developer to comment on that. But yes I guess so. Only problem is we don't have many developers for this phone due to it's small reach.

Do you know, what needs to be adjusted?
I would love to see a custom rom for my E8 (M8Sn) and cannot find anyone who is able to help me.
It is the singleSIM version from Germany.

Unfortunately I don't. There are a few people on our forums here, CaptainThrowback and DutchDanny. They are familiar with development. Try asking them. Or contact a dev from M8 forums and ask instead, if they are free enough, they might guide you.
