    There are a number of threads for Alliance ROM v8 and v8 Lite. Could you post a link to the one that you used.

    The opening line states...

    "Rom is not compatible with 900H but will work on 900F, 900I(Fix for nfc in ota), 900T, 900W8, 900M. Any other models it has worked on let us know."

    A quick search of the thread shows that there are issues with the
    G900P which is a CDMA phone, whilst the above are all worldwide GSM models.

    CDMA vs. GSM: What's the Difference?

    I would suggest downloading your original stock Sprint firmware and flashing it to your phone. This will un-root you but at least your phone will function again.Then look for custom ROMs that are specifically for your model of phone and modem.

    You will need to either contact the developers of Alliance v8 or post on their forum and see if there is a patch or workaround for your model of phone so that Sprint will authenticate it.
