    Default Convert SIII GT-i9300T to GT-i9300

    I don't know if this is a stupid question, but i am gonna ask it anyway....

    Is it possible to convert a GT-i9300T into an international version.... I assume that the hardware is the same, so is it only software....

    If it is possible, how do you do it...

    Cheers in advance...

    The international version has a different processor, different RAM, different radios, different sound processor..

    The GT-i9300T is the same hardware wise, it's just the Telecom branded firmware, ie. it'll get updates after the american ones.
    But any custom rom for the 9300 will work with the 9300T

    So just an update, for all who have just been converted to Android and the S3, I was an iPhone user for a while, had an Ice Cream Sandwich and then the whole world seemed a nicer place...

    I took the risk and flashed the JB leak [UK Version] to my GT-i9300T with Odin, and everything is working perfectly... It even changed the named of my device from i9300T to i9300... at least that is what I see in the "About" tab in the setting, do know if that really means anything...

    But no problems to report...

    Later, Rasta4aye...

    Thanks a lot for the appreciation... and being from the UK myself... it is great to have the UK firmware, I live in Asia at the moment, and can do without the Thai Bloatware...

    I'm thinking about flashing my Australian Telstra branded Samsung Galaxy S3 to the UK Stock firmware, as I'd like to get regular android updates. Here is a screenshot from my about device screen:

    Convert SIII GT-i9300T to GT-i9300-about_device_telstra_i9300t.jpg

    Before I go ahead, does anyone think I'll have any problems, specifically with reception in Australia? Will I get updates to the Android OS as google roll them out?

    Also, is it possible to backup my existing firmware first?

    I rooted my GT-19300T and flashed the Super Nexus 2 Jelly Bean rom onto it. Now it's a GT-19300

    BTW, that rom is awesome

    Best way is to root your SGS3 install Titanium and freeze your Telstra Apps or install Rom Toolbox and freeze or uninstall
