Default [Q] Rogers i727R identical to Skyrocket?

I have a question about the Rogers Samsung Galaxy S II LTE. Is it completely identical to the AT&T S II Skyrocket?

In terms of roms and compatibility, they should be the exact same?

I would think that they would be the same, but the slight variation on model numbers throws me off.

(i727 vs i727R)

Thanks for your help.

they r not exactly the same, kernel radio and rom r different, but u can tweek to get stuff working on i727r if it was made for i727(att)
as an example, i had to replace one file in faux's kernel to get it stable on my i727r

as far as hardware they could be exactly the same (im 99.9% sure they r), but the software(kernel, radio, rom ) r written different for each carrier so it can work for ur carrier

So is there specifically released software for the Rogers S II?

So is the poster before you is incorrect, I assume? Otherwise, it seems like anything Skyrocket will work with the Rogers S II, which is what it seems like you're saying.

Actually no, he's partially right. In reference to the i727R not being completely compatible with radios, kernels and such, yes he is incorrect. As for needing to change one file in one of faux's kernels to to function he is correct.

Awhile back I posted a fix on this, but basically the init.qcom. post-boot file didn't have the correct identifier with the R present, and was incompatible with tpc v3, Rogers version. Replacing the identifier fixed the issue.
