    I just recently bought a Galaxy S3 the (SGH-T999N) model. It's rooted and to be honest I forgot what method I used to root it(which is relatively sad) but I am rooted and I have the TWRP(2.6.3) installed and I'm running stock 4.1.2(BaseBandVersion: NUVAME4). I have been trying to install a custom rom for god knows how long and I just havent been succesful at all. I'm not new to the whole rooting/custom roms thing, just I keep running into errors everytime I try to install 4.4 Based Roms onto my phone and Idk why... I've tried to install Gummy 4.4, SlimKat 4.4 and OmniRom I belive but have had no luck with any. It's actually just the roms that dont flash neither because when I flash the gapps and its always succesful, so what do you guys think could be the issue ? If you need more info just hmu thru the thread.

    Can anyone please help?
    If you have any custom rom on your T999N, please let me know how you did it. Thats all I'm asking, because I've tried so many methods I have no idea what I could be doing that wrong.

    Haven't really had time to mess with the 4.4 stuff to get them working, it wouldn't be hard though. The errors are because the phone model is being checked versus the model's the rom is compatible with. Updater script needs to be tweaked.

    I am running slimbean 4.3 right now, flashes no issues. I posted how some where in this subforum.
