    Trying to do my first custom rom on an old phone. Got the phone rooted and installed TWRP. Right now I'm figuring out how to make a backup and how to do a recovery from a backup.

    When I got TWRP I picked the AT&T s3 as the device because there was no sgh-i747m listed.

    Took a chance by not asking and figured I better stop taking stupid chances. Not finding anything that helps in searches.

    So can I pick the AT&T version of cayenogenmod and not brick?

    Might be a stupid question but it's all I've got.

    Yes that's what I got. Is that the right one?

    Make a backup and factory reset in TWRP, then flash CM 12 for AT&T S3 and appropriate gapps. May need to wait 5-10 mins after reboot.

    Okay will do. What's a good source for gapps?

    Here's a link to XDA thread with gapps for CM 12.1


    I recently used the micro gapps when I flashed a ROM based on CM 12.1. I prefer the micro or nano gapps since I don't use most of the stuff in full gapps package.

    If Ihad a backup of all the user apps I need with titanium backup and I decided not to install GAPPS would everything work okay? I usually get everything I need from google after a factory reset then disable all google apps anyways.

    You would still need the Play Store and Google play services. I suggest using the pico package if you just need play store to work.

    I just flashed CM without GAPPS, got the apk for titanium backup then used that to restore my apps from its backup file. Screw google I'm free!
