Hello.

I have an unlocked SGH-I317 from AT&T, I live in México and my cellular operator is Telcel.

Can I install a ROM from the SGH-I317M model Telcel is selling in México? Can I install a ROM from the SGH-I317M being sold in Canada?

I've found this ROMs, and their related information:

AT&T : I317UCAMA4_I317ATTAMA4_ATT.zip | 848.6 MB
Model: SGH-I317
Country: USA (AT&T)
Version: Android 4.1.2
Changelist: N/A
Build date: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 +0000
Product Code: ATT
PDA: I317UCAMA4
CSC: I317ATTAMA4
MODEM: I317UCAMA4

Telcel: I317MUMBMB1_I317MTCEBMB2_TCE.zip | 988.9 MB
I317MUMBMB1_I317MTCEBMB2_TCE.zip | 988.9 MB
Model: SGH-I317M
Country: Mexico (Telcel)
Version: Android 4.1.2
Changelist: N/A
Build date: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 +0000
Product Code: TCE
PDA: I317MUMBMB1
CSC: I317MTCEBMB2
MODEM: I317MUMBMD1

Canada: I317MVLBMA3_I317MOYABMA3_VMC.zip | 885.9 MB
Model: SGH-I317M
Country: Canada
Version: Android 4.1.2
Changelist: N/A
Build date: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 +0000
Product Code: VMC
PDA: I317MVLBMA3
CSC: I317MOYABMA3
MODEM: I317MVLBMA3

I see the Modems are different versions... how will that affect my phone if I use any of the Canada or Telcel ROMs?

What is PDA and CSC?

Besides the need to use "Odin", which other things should I consider to do this? How should I backup my phone?

Thanks...!

Ok flashing other modem's on a device that it, isn't ment for will give you lots of PROBLEMS! FYI
If your looking for a Rom to flash find something that don't include a modem. And you should be OK. But if you find something from your county then you might get all the features they offer.
Personally I think that you need to do a lil (well quite a bit I'd say) reading up on the Android flashing, Rom's, etc!

But making a back up is best thru your recovery! I prefer TWRP recovery, found HERE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=33867032

Look HERE for INFO:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=38949514

What is CSC?
CSC is the consumer software customisation and is specific to geographical region and carriers. It contains the software packages specific to that region, carrier branding and also APN settings for data connection, MMS etc for your service provider.

What is PDA?
PDA refers to the build version of the software/firmware

Hopefully this info will get you on your way! Good luck buddy...

I have a Telcel i317m... in case you are interested in custom ROMs, you can flash any ATT (t0lteatt) or international gt 7105 (t0lte) ROMs with no problems.
Few ROMs will flash a modem and CSC... but you can always restore the originals from recovery

There's no point in flashing US or Canadian carrier's roms. They will install lots of apps you can't use.

You are better off using a debloated stock~ish rom like Cleanrom or Jedi. I have Cleanrom and I use a Tecel sim when I cross the border.

Unhappy Not receiving 4G anymore
Hey guys, need help very badly.

I've a AT&T i317 unlocked, I'm from India, got the phone from US. Used to get 4G all the time when i was on stock ROM. Then i decided to go custom and installed Ditto Note 3 Rom v3.0 and continued receiving 4G. Then as the rom was unstable i'd to upgrade it to v3.1 and for a few days i did get 4G. But the thing with v3.1 is it comes with aroma installer and we were asked to install the rom which was meant for N7105 rather than i317 orelse the phone would be stuck at the samsung glowing logo forever!

So as instructed i did select N7105 and it changed a few settings but still was able to get 4G. Then came the worst part, i out of curiosity tried installing the rom for i317 and got stuck on samsung glow logo and again reinstalled the N7105 rom.

But on the installation process i observed that when i do a DATA/FACTORY RESET, it did not wipe the internal memory, so i did it manually in the phone settings and then installed N7105 which turned my phone completely into N7105! and ever since i lost 4G.

Then i tried installing V3.1 and check for 4G but with no luck.
So please help me out.

And what im thinking is if may be i can get a stock i317 rom that samsung released, i can instal it and do a factory reset and get my phone to be like when it came out from the factory and it might solve the problem coz i hate 2G! It sucks. And im not able to find the stock rom, please share me the link if any or suggest me something guys please!

You can grab a build.prop from one of the links @Bajanman posted
Here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48935684

DL AT&T UCUBMK6 i317 *Odexed* Stock CWM Note 2 extract it and grab build.prop from /system/app. It's stock so no fluff.

It's also good to have that file as a back up since it has the stock files.
