Since I cannot seem to get the search function to return even results I see in recent posts, I am unable to locate any previous posts that may already answer this.

If I purchase the US Cellular variant of the S4 mini (SCH-R890) should I be able to apply root -- and more importantly CM10.2 -- procedures/how-to's that were made/written for the int'l version (GT-I9195) to my phone?

Using carrier supplied software is a deal-breaker for me, and I am not seeing any information from people saying it is or is NOT compatible.

Does anyone have any info to lend?

(Apologies if this should be in Q&A)

For the time it's probably going to be just root. You can't be the only one with that version

Can anyone speak to the possibility of using the int'l ROM on this phone?

I gave up and got a different phone on Verizon, since USC had such a small selection.
Haven't looked again, but I would suspect something might be available now...
