    I would like to know if the custom ROMs for the T599 T-Mobile variant work with the T599N Metro PCS variant, thanks.

    So installing a T-Mobile variant ROM on the mpcs version will give me no problems and it will boot up properly? Because I wanted to install the 5.1.1 PAC ROM and I think that is for the T599 T-Mobile variant.

    I checked my baseband and its the same as the one on the thread. Someone on the thread said they flashed it and WiFi and data and stuff works. So I'm guessing it'll work...?

    It will work if you edit the blobinstaller file inside the zip to match your baseband.

    And can you please show me how to do that?

    This only applies to the Meticulus roms. GamerRom will flash with no modifications. I will tell you that, while I have the same baseband as you, and have done this myself with seemingly no ill effects, you should be aware that there is some risk involved. There is a discussion going on about this over in the PacRom 5.0 thread, you might want to follow that.

    This is assuming you are using Winrar, the steps should be similar for windows integrated or winzip, but I can't verify this.

    Open the rom zip file and locate the "blobinstaller.sh" file.
    Extract only that file, to your desktop or somewhere easy to find.
    Open with a text editor such as Notepad or Notepad++
    Close the beginning of the file, locate this section:

    Code (Text):
    1. then
    2.             ui_print "BASEBAND = $VALUE"
    3.             if [[ "$VALUE" == "T599NUVAMD4" ]]
    4.             then
    5.                 CODENAME="codinamtr"
    6.                 VERSION="SGH-T599N"
    7.             elif [[ "$VALUE" == "T599UVAMB5" ]]
    8.             then
    9.                 CODENAME="codinatmo"
    10.                 VERSION="SGH-T599"
    11.             elif [[ "$VALUE" == "T599VVLAME3" ]]
    12.             then
    13.                 CODENAME="codinavid"
    14.                 VERSION="SGH-T599V"
    15.             else
    Change "T599NUVAMD4" to "T599NUVAOH1"
    Save the file, make sure you keep the .sh extension, and that your text editor doesn't automatically add the .txt extension.
    Double click on the zip for the rom you want to install.
    Drag the blobinstaller.sh onto the window that just opened up.
    Make sure Update mode is set to "Add and Replace".
    Click OK.
    That's it.

    That's how I made it work. Like I said, that's how I do it using Winrar. I never encountered any bugs or anything like that, but you assume responsibility for it.

    Okay thanks. BTW, this is important. Do gamerRom 5 and 6 have WiFi working? And does it wipe the system while I'm flashing it? The reason I am asking is because I have an SD card right now and I don't have enough space to backup but if needed I can flash a stock ROM in Odin if i have to but I'd have to wait. Also which recovery should I use for gamerrom, philz or twrp? Answering these questions are greatly appreciated.

    Any new rom will wipe system. Actually, not doing so would cause all kinds of issues. Any of the recoveries will work, unless the thread specifies otherwise.
