Default [Q] Do Galaxy 3 roms work on Galaxy 3 mini ?

Hello,
Forgive me if the answer is obvious. It is just that I have recently bought this phone and I already have some ROMs which I installed for my friend's S3.

No, it doesn't. The S3 uses a different CPU and has higher specs (camera etc). Only ROMs buiilt for the S3 mini would work; take a look at Oliver's CM or MacLaw's ROMs. I'm sure there's more ROMs, take a look in the android development subforum.

And not to mention the partitions are all different.
It's harder to understand women than Android and Kernels.

My devices: GT-I9100, GT-I8190, GT-S5570

don't even think about it but sometimes apps can work and audio files will definitely work
