1- choose the best custom ROM which support my device so I will not loose the dual networking
2- guidlines how to do that
3-links to the recommended ROM
Thanks in advance I will be grateful to any one who participate even with negative response.
Hi there. So, any of the roms you choose will allow you to use CDMA or GSM. Since the bootloader issue and needing to use Safestrap, your only options are roms that are based on official VZW Touchwiz firmware.
Both are considered stable, have great devs, and good support. I suggest to read through people's comments and see if it fits your needs.
As far as the install, it's not terribly difficult. Install Safestrap 3.65 (last stable version for JB roms), grant root access, and hit Install Recovery. Then you can boot to recovery. Once there,do a nandroid backup, and then you need to create a rom slot, activate(switch to it) then install the rom. Once that rom slot is activated and everything is installed, when you reboot, you will see the Safestrap splash screen and it'll let you reboot to recovery or continue - just hit the corresponding soft key underneath the option you want or just leave it alone and it'll boot on it's own in 10 seconds.
