Default Any I9100 ROM on I777 or S959G phones

I wanted know if I can install any i9100 ROM on an I777 or S959G as long as I flash the ROM, the Gapps, my modem and a kernel made for my phone.

Example:
Mokee 4.4.2
4.4.2 Gapps
S959G Modem( mine is the Straight Talk SGH-S959G)
And RendenBroken's Kit Kat Kernel

Now I'm sorry if this is a dumb question to ask but I installed Biftor's Cooked 4.1.2 ROM on my S959G with Jeboo's kernel and the same modem.

I was thinking the I777, S959G and the I9100 are not too different but only on hardware keys on the front of the phones and in kernel.

Sent out from my RR Kit Kat Phone


Phone: Samsung Galaxy SII Straight Talk (SGH-S959G)
Rom: Resurrection Remix v5.1.5 Android Version: v4.4.2 Kit Kat
Recovery: TWRP Version: 2.6.3.0
Extras: BEATS Audio, NFC Enabled, Sony Braiva Engine v3

Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Verzion (SCH-I800) (Bricked it by flashing a JB ROM)
Rom: BRICKED! Android Version: BRICKED!
Recovery: LOST!

I'm pretty sure you can as long as the ROMs updater script does not have an assert check. If it does you have to use notepad++ to delete it or you'll get status 7 error.

It's not going to hurt a thing to try. In fact you can flash an i9100 ROM and kernel and it will boot up but your microphones and keys won't work right. Makes it kinda useless to use as a phone.

Just make a nandroid backup and if all else fails, restore. Remember to stick with kitkat ROMs with renderbroken's kernel. It won't boot anything else

Oddly, I do that to test new ROMs out like the AICP ROM or CM 11 Semi ROM

But I thought about porting the MoKee ROM for our phones if I get the permission to do so. :thumbup:
