For those of you with a Sprint Galaxy phone like the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, or the Note 3, did you know you can also enjoy more custom ROMs by installing Verizon custom ROMs?
We’ve always thought this process took a bit of coding and porting from Verizon ROMs to Sprint ROMs but in my recent findings show that you can actually get Verizon ROMs working on Sprint Galaxy phones fairly easily by adding APN and using 3rd-party SMS app to get MMS send working.
Last week, I was able to get everything working except MMS sends, which was a bugger since many of you send lots of MMS messages daily.
Well, thanks to HighOnAndroid.com user kvelez, we are also able to get that working with a 3rd-party SMS app. It seems the the Verizon custom ROMs come with its own Verizon MMS setting, which cannot be altered just with APN. By using 3rd party app, we are able to circumvent around this problem.
And the result? You can install any Verizon TouchWiz ROM on Sprint Galaxy phone!
Here’s how to do it, step-by-step!
Step 1. First, you will need a rooted Galaxy phone with CWM or TWRP recovery installed.
