    I was given a phone which I think the original owner had tried to put a custom rom on and failed, According to the sticker it is a GT-I9500.

    I was able to install TWRP and later tried CWM and attempted some custom roms, all installed but failed to boot. I tried reverting to several different original I9500 firmwares but all would fail to install because the PIT did not match, I downloaded the PIT from the phone with heimdall and it is nothing like the I9500 PIT in fact it looks similar to the I9505.

    Now I am lost, I do not know if this phone is maybe fake or some how someone flashed it with the wrong PIT any suggestions would be appreciated.

    This is the sticker under the battery and I have included the print output of the phones PIT.
