    Hi All,
    When you are choosing a custom ROM, I know you are never supposed to flash one that was meant for another device. But, lets say you are looking one for a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-T211, and the list of rom just says its for the galaxy tab 3 7.0 but doesn´t specify variant (sm-t211) is it OK to go ahead and use any of then since it is meant for your particular device, even though it doesn´t clarify the variant? Thanks in advance. :)

    No, it must match the variant. There are exceptions depending on the device, but typically, the custom ROM must match the variant.
