Thanks again.

Well I installed CM11 again and lte was working and I checked around in the ron but could not find anything on a setting for the bands.

In TWRP use advance wipe and check the first 4 boxes Dalvik cache, Cache, Systen and Data and try reflashing the CM11 rom and see if kte will show up.

OK, I just did the advanced option to wipe dalvik, cache, system and data. Then reflashed CM11 - still doesn't get LTE. Also the carrier says Rogers Wireless instead of Fido on the lock screen.

Do I need to change the APNs? After reflashing, there are 4 APNs created including:
Fido FTE = ltemobile.apn

It's weird that it would create a Fido APN yet display "Rogers Wireless" as the service on the lock screen.

@starmaster10: I see you have tried so many custom ROMs on this biggie phone! Which one of all these do you finally prefer? OR maybe just stock Samsung itself?

Well, to be honest, all these non-functioning this and that on custom ROMs (LTE, WiFi, touch, etc.) has scared me to take the risk of custom ROMming! I just wish by now, a non-invasive rooting method existed for Mega 6.3" with KitKat. Man, on other phones, it's just so easy and no-brainer to root but with Mega! Naah.

Mega is a production phone for me, all I wanted was to root it (I don't want custom recovery) that doesn't screw Knox!

Well the two custom roms I liked the best was resurrection and the dirty unicorn rom as those roms had some nice features in them..but I am on the 4.2.2 jellybean right now for a while already..I will most likely install the kitkat 4.4.2 NE5 rom in a while and at least I can still install some custom roms down the road..and knox is triggered on my phone due to rooting and installing a custom recovery TWRP it is good to have backups in case something goes haywire.

I want to install a custom rom for a friend that has an unlocked SGH-i527m. I wanted to ask several questions:

1. Which ROM is both fast and stable with minimum numbers of bugs!? I think KitKats are fine. I need something that doesn't give my friend a headache.

2. The latest download link provided by Silesh.Nair is for ... Android 7.1.2... Is it stable?

3. Is it possible to install any ROM that is in the i9205 section? What other i9XXX can I install on this device?

4. Do I have to look for a certain recovery for each ROM? Or can I use the latest recovery available? I have seen some devices that there is a specific recovery for each ROM.

Thank you in advance.
