Hello xda!

If you are a user of a GT-I8190N or GT-I8190L phone then you saw already that your model number in settings > about phone is changed to GT-I8190 on Custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, Carbon etc.
Now I want show you how you can change your original model number back to GT-I8190N/L

Requirements :
- Root access
- a Root explorer (example Root browser or the stock file manager of CM)

Now let´s start :

1. give your Root explorer Root access

2. go to /system and search the build.prop file (optional,do backup your current build.prop file to avoid mistakes)

3. open build.prop and you will see many codes, search for "ro.product.model=GT-8190"

4. Delete GT-I8190 and add YOUR model name or add N or L

5. save it and Reboot your phone

6. Congratulations! you have your original model number back

Note : Do NOT edit other codes in build.prop. Maybe system apps will cause force close.

Check screenshots

Do this methode at yor own Risk!
