    Nice instructions. You seem to have missed the part where I’m supposed to put the Google Apps on the phone BEFORE I begin the process. Now I seem to be stuck on the CM boot screen, though I’ll give it another ten minutes, as I figure the first boot takes a while.

What's my model number?

There are several ways to locate your model number:

Option 1
On your device, go to Settings, then "About device" and scroll down to "Model number"
Option 2
Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
Option 3
Using Samsung's model/serial number location tool
