I got the Samsung Galaxy Note shv-e160l (Korean version) as a gift, running the stock ICS 4.0. I want to flash official indian JB ROM (of the GT-N7000) on it. Is it possible if I root my device?

No, do not try to do this, or you will brick your device. SHV-E160L and GT-N7000 have completely different processors (Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 for SHV-E160L, and Samsung S5PC210 for GT-N7000); e.g., see this comparison.

There are some custom ROMs for SHV-E160L in the xda-developers section for AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note I717 (this device is closer to SHV-E160L, but also not 100% compatible, so look carefully and use only ROMs which are made for SHV-E160L).

  • Thanks man but i want something to be clarified."This device is closer to SHV-E 160L" does that mean if i can't find any custom roms i can flash a rom for the AT&T version on my device ? Is the chance of bricking low ?

  • The problem is that there is currently no special section for the SHV-E160 series of devices on XDA-developers forums, therefore discussion and ROM releases for SHV-E160 are in the section for I717, which has some common hardware with E160 devices, but is not exactly the same. So you will find ROMs for SHV-E160 and I717 in the same forum, but this does not mean that ROMs for I717 will work on E160 series devices. Use only ROMs which are explicitly described as compatible with your device model. Commented May 29, 2013 at 14:40

No, you can't run the Indian ROM. Both are different chipsets, and forcing it might brick your device.

Many users requested the SHW-M180S Firmware. I have uploaded it here.

It is only for the SHW-M180S tablet.

  • It's generally a bad idea to download ROMs from dodgy file-sharing sites. Only install ROMs from sources you trust to be genuine.
