Post [Q] Any Custom Roms for Sgh-i747m?

Hi,

I have sg s3 sgh-i747m from telus and I have been looking every where but couldn't find an answer. The admins are too lazy to make a Canadian section so allot of people who have the same model run into the same problem. Can i use any other roms from other models like sgh-i747 or would I break my device. Also can I can a list of possible of compatible roms? That would be much appreciated.
I need answers and I hope that this will help others in the future.

Thanks

You can use any ROM designed for a d2att. This has been repeated all over the i747/i747m forum. Only stock ROMs are unique, custom ROMs are not.

The d2att is the designation for an AT&T s3 which is the same, hardware wise, as the Rogers, Bell, Telus, Virgin, and Koodo models in Canada.

Download rom manager click recovery setup make sure that you select SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 D2ATT flash the latest CWM and it should work i jus did it on mine and worked so it might be the copy of cyanogen that you got try downloading another copy

Upgrade to the latest Philz Touch ro CWM. No need to update your bootloader beyond 4.1.2.

I can load Validus, CM11, and Cyanfox which are all 4.4.2-based ROMs and this is on an i747m that was running stock 4.1.2. I never updated beyond the 4.1.2 bootloader. Have a look at the updater script in the ROM and it will tell you which bootloaders are supported.
