Hi guys,

For some strange reason my phone is unable to detect new OTA updates. I'm running I9505XXUGNF1 per the screenshot below and when I try and run an update to I9505XXUGNG2 I get a message saying "The latest updates have already been installed" even though NG2 is available via the OTA server.

Can someone help me please?

In order to upgrade I need to download the 2gb ROM file and install using Odin which is a pain when you're travelling!

Is it something to do with DBT? Is there some way of changing my phone into a DBT phone?

Does someone know how I can change my CSC? I've seen a few guides but they require root and an earlier ROM version which I can't go back to...

I've flashed through ODIN a number of times but my CSC doesn't change... How can I force a CSC change?

OK, so I re-downloaded the following file:

DBT-I9505XXUGNF1-20140619102758.zip

and followed the instructions from:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7&postcount=14

Make sure you take a backup via Kies if you need personal files
Download the respective stock ROMS from sammobile.com or samsung-updates.com or see thread on Stock Roms on XDA
Extract zip to get tar.md5
Put device into download mode (Vol down+ Home + Power) and Flash using Odin (PDA option)
Wait till device reboots back into Android after completing the flash and recovery
Once device reboots, do a Factory Reset via Settings > Accounts
Once device reboots after Factory Reset/recovery, enter the google account info and restore settings and then turn off the device
Boot device back into download mode (Vol down+ Home + Power)
Re-flash the same downloaded firmware for a second time via Odin
Once the device reboots after the 2nd flash, your CSC should have changed to the CSC of the ROM you downloaded, and Kies also should show that CSC has changed and it should allow future updates via Kies or OTA


And my CSC still says OXA which I think is "open europe" (same as before) and OTA updates are still not available.

Can someone with knowledge of this please help?
