[Q] Samsung Note SGH-I717 or SHV-E160L?
I have a problem with my Note. I bought the Korean version of the phone (at leats it should be) but the specifications of the phone are driving me crazy lol
As I said, when I bought it, it should be the Korean version, however the rom running on it is from AT&T (AT&T splash screen, AT&T wifi hotspots in the settings, AT&T phone update and so on). The phone is rooted. When I run a device info app, it’s a mess:
Android version: 2.3.6
Release Codename: REL
CPU ABI: armeabi-v7a
CPU ABI2: armeabi
Even though I don’t understand some of this info, there are 3 things that intrigue me. The CPU, I guess it’s from the Korean version, since it seems the AT&T devices have a QUALCOMM processor. But the weirdest part for is the Hardware (SHV-E160L) and the Device and Model (SGH-I717) information. Shouldn’t that be the same in all the information? So my phone is it the AT&T model or the Korean model? The guy who sold it to me told me it was the Korean model but they change something in the ROM to support Chinese (I live in China), and the Korean ROM doesn’t support Chinese. However, I want to put the original Korean ROM because it has the NFC already working, while in the AT&T build I have in my phone, it’s not activated yet. So, anyway can anyone tell me which model I have?
And, if it's the Korean model, how did he put the AT&T ROM on it? I thought you couldn't mess the S7000, SI717, etc model roms?!
Thanks in advance.
