Default SM-N9005 firmware

Has anyone ever tried flashing the international version nc2 firmware on to their SM-N900A? If so did the phone work? Or did it brick? I'm just curious. Was thinking of doing this but, I don't want to brick my phone. Don't care if I trip knox.

Stock firmware will screw your phone. Only use a custom ported ROM.

Why would you want to flash the stock international firmware anyways.

I've always found the international versions to run games and apps so much more smoother ever since the captivate days. I like to play games and run a lot of apps on my phone and for some reason international versions always out performs the at&t bloated crap.

So what if I would use a kernel for the n9005 to get custom recovery. Would that screw up my phone aswell?

Yes. Locked bootloaders. If you were able to successfully flash it (you wouldn't) it would brick. You would need to unlock the bootloaders (can't be done at this time) to be able to flash a different kernel.

If any of this were possible (it's not) we would not be having a problem.

Basically... There is a lot more than just flashing required to make stuff work. The code has to be modified to run on our device, as well as bootloaders being signed and locked to each phone.

Thanks graydiggy for your help. If that's the case I would rather just use all these nice ROMs that all these fine devs have prepared for us. Also what tutorial would you recommend to learn how to port ROMs to our device? I've been wanting to learn this for a long while now.

I have no idea about tutorials for software...

But this is a good place to start http://xda-university.com

I'm more into hardware mods than anything.
