The Samsung S5 Mini is available with different processors. The most common is the Samsung Exynos 3 Quad 3470, used in (at least) the G800F/M/Y variants, while my G800H (Galaxy S5 Mini Duos) is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400. I am now struggling to find recent Android images for my phone.

The buildarch for the Exynos based phones is kminilte, which I obviously can't use. I installed the "Official TWRP App" which states my platform is klte. However, klte is the platform for the Galaxy S5 G900* devices, which ship with a Snapdragon 801.

The Snapdragon 400 and Snapdragon 801 are both ARMv7 and therefore binary compatible, but that is only one piece of the puzzle. Is everything else also compatible, so that I can actually use the Galaxy S5 images on my Galaxy S5 Mini?
