Does anyone know if I can install an english firmware for my chinese phone that I brought off an auction site. The phone model is SM-G9880 but there is only east asian firmware under that number. I tried flashing the SM-G988B (VOD) firmware but it didn't work. Do you know if there is a firmware in US or UK that will flash. It's 256gb model which I believe was only available in Asia... really want english firmware on it. Can anyone help please?
The best place to visit is the xdadevelopers site @DavidArcher007 where there is lots of information, advice and tutorials on Custom Roms.
Using a Custom Rom can bring about an unstable phone or it may not work properly if the process glitches or the wrong Rom is used. A person takes full responsibility if they perform this process and do so at their own informed decision. Samsung would levy a charge to put this right.
