SGH-I747 with SGH-T999 Firmware?
Hi everyone, a coworker bought a used SGH-I747 and is having some trouble using it on T-Mobile so I told her I would try to get it going for her. It was sold as an unlocked SGH-I747 variant online, but I looked at the phone info on it and here is what it's saying:
Model Number: SGH-T999
Android Version: 4.1.2
Baseband version: T999UVDMD5
Kernel version: 3.0.31-1128078
SMP PREEMPT Mon Apr 15 11:59:10 KST 2013
Build number: JZO54K.T999UVDMD5
Under the battery it says SGH-I747
I would like to root the phone and get it operating on T-Mobile as well as possible. My main question is, do I use the root methods meant for the SGH-I747 or do I use the methods meant for the SGH-T999? Also, once it is rooted, what else needs to be done to make the phone as functional as possible for T-Mobile?
FYI: I have an SGH-I535, I have rooted about a dozen different phones, I have used Odin, I'm good with both TWRP and CWM recoveries, I have ADB setup already and can follow instructions without any problems (I just don't know commands off the top of my head).
