Installing /e/ on SAMSUNG galaxy S4 SC-04E (japanese model)

Dear all,
I am using a Samsung galaxy S4 SC-04E, which is the japanese version of the S4 built with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T. It is a single sim mobile, not listed in the supported e/OS devices models.
Any of you is using (have used) this model ? Do you know if it is possible to install a S4 single sim version model (Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC mounted ) on a SC-04E ?

Thank you for your kind answers and help !

I think you are getting the hang of it @babulol, searching the you have found the fairly wide range of Samsung S4 supported by /e/ but for each variant /e/ only supports the “Supported models” listed near the foot of each Info page.


Another approach to searching is via the devicecode, as in “jfltexx”. The devicecode of a proposed device must be an exact match with the /e/ ROM you plan to use.

You can find your own devicecode with reference to [HOWTO] Find device codename and /or try using the Android app AIDA64 Download 1.85 (APK) | AIDA64, available free in reputable app stores.

look like it is impossible,

from android, we got :
brand name / commercial name / device codename / model number


from xda, we got :

The list below contains the variants which need a specific TWRP Recovery version:
