Any ROM for S will Work for SL BUT you lose 1.7GH Speed & model number.
ROMs for S Can be installed for SL using following method. Also, if you get status 7 error in Recovery when flashing it can be solved following this method
>>>In ROM zip file (that u downloaded) Goto HERE:
META INF>com>google>android (use 7-zip which can edit without extraction)
Now u'll see a file named UPDATER-Script>Open it>Now if U see following lines or similar
assert(getprop("ro.product.device")"LT26i" || getprop("ro.build.product") "LT26i" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "nozomi" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "nozomi");
OR LIKE THIS-
** Delete Those lines (normally 1 or two line) & Save the zip file with change and its ready to flash **
** BUT if there is nothing like those above lines U don't have to do anything Just Flash **
