Hi yes it is I am trying to help my brother flash a custom rom on it with the little knowledge I have.
Do you know if the network will still work OK? And would you know why when he's downloading a rom using goo manager it downloads then just hangs on the md5 check. He's got stock 4.1.2 rooted.
Thanks

If it's rooted already it should be fine. Try to look for the radio files for your device online.
