Info 2 [How-To] Port Your TW ROM to All Major US Carriers

This guide has already been used twice (and possibly four times) to break xda rules. I will not enable that.

Sorry everyone. Thread closed.

I have flashed ATT TW AND AOSP roms for my Tmobile out of the box and it works. I then change the build.prop with root explorer.

Going to give this a try this weekend. It's a dumb question but could I use this to say port a Sprint ROM to my AT&T phone ? Just a straight port over but just changing the things you list here ?
Click thanks if you think I helped you.

I can't say for sure, but it should work just fine.

Though I must admit, Sprint is the worst choice you could make for your first port attempt. You could have problems with both libs and kernels.

And I still haven't figured out how to get MMS working on my Sprint port.

hrmmm Verizon doesnt seem like a good port either and most tmo are fairly compatible already. I'll keep searching I guess

I think Verizon would be a good choice.

Is there any way of porting anything from the international i9300 to the AT&T i747 using a similar method as found in the original post?
I understand the processor and radio differences.

There is going to be a lot more than is listed here for that... I doubt its really possible. Kind like you can't easily port a i777 ROM to a skyrocket

It will take much more than what is listed in the OP. I am not sure I have ever seen a ROM ported from Europe to the US (or the other way around).

As you mentioned, the processor and radios are different, but so are the system partitions. Anything is possible, but I think that would be a huge amount of work.

If you try this please be very careful. Many, many users have bricked their devices flashing a ROM from across the pond.

I wasn't going to try it. I had just wanted to get 4.1.2 without the AT&T bloatware and someone else's build that has additional features that I don't need.
