Can I install a Galaxy Note 2 N7100 rom into an N7105?
I remember the only difference between the N7100 and N7105 was 3G and 4G.

I always thought N7100 and N7105 had different System on Chips but looking around on the internet it seems they both have Exynos 4412. So theoretically most roms for N7100 should work for N7105 with one exception and that is the modem. You will have to flash the modem.img for Qualcomm LTE modem that N7105 uses. However I cannot be sure about it especially in the case of Replicant as it has so many other things changed such as RIL. Unfortunately i dont own a N7105 so I cannot test it for you.

I tried to install using TWRP.
When I tried to install with ADB sideload, it showed that this ROM is for N7100 and this phone is t0lte, so I could not install. Too bad, when will the N7105 be supported?

Yes, Android recovery software is supposed to check the device and ensure only ROMs for that model are installed. Otherwise you could end up seriously bricking your device. n7105 has a completely different modem and so lots of work will need to be done to bring it up. No timeframes can be given. That said, I am hopeful that it will feature at some point, as i9305 is being considered, and that has the same modem as n7105.
