Using the i9300 images on an i9305 won't work:
- The i9305 requires a different kernel.
- The i9305 has a different partition structure.
However with some adaptation of the i9300 images it should be possible
to boot Replicant.
If you do that, since the modem is totally different, telephony and
data won't work.
I happen to have an i9305 and I want to add it to Replicant. However I
don't have much time for that and it keeps being delayed becuase I
often have more urgent things to do.
