Default [Q] Unlock to ATT phone to tmobile custom rom?

Hi I just unlocked the note 2 att version by downgrading to firmware 4.1.1. Now I can use the phone for t-mobile. I now want to root and have t-mobile based rom installed.

To achieve this must I first odin flash t-mobile's official 4.1.2 firmware and
then root and then install a t-mobile 4.1.2 based custom rom?
Or can I simple root and just install a 4.1.2 t-mobile custom rom?


Thanks!

Yes exactly. That is the only reason really.

I have it in Note3 and it sucks...
I also have unlocked Note2 and it works fine on T-Mobile.

Do not odin the T889 firmware. Keep your current bootloader and modem, flash a tmo rom via recovery. Problems can be addressed in the rom thread.

Hastily spouted for your befuddlement
