Default [Q] Can I flash ROMs of other variants?

I have recently got an unlocked F240L OG pro in India. My question is, can I flash ROMs of E980 or E988 on it? do I need to apply patches for radio/sound etc to work? or this flashing isnt possible at all?

It's hit or miss, I've had some success but with many bugs and some very unstable. I would strongly urge you not to though because a brick or bootloop is very possible.

Can you recommend some good ROMs for F240L then? almost all the most popular roms I saw here are mostly for E980 and rest are for E988:banghead:

We do not allow recommendations of ROMs, please do not ask for any, best advice is to try them out yourself. As this is not what the thread is about it will stay open for now.

Thanks

Most roms are for f240L search for xitrom v1.8 or sphinx rom and you can flash e980 or 988 rom but you should flash f240l kernel and baseband and it should have the same version of android for example if u flash e988 4.4.2 rom you should flash f240l 4.4.2 kernel and baseband but sure make a rom backup first ( btw sorry for my weak english i'm arabic )


Hit thanks if i help you
