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[1].

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.
