And when I opened it it seems to be a Chinese model. The pamphlet it came with was in chinese and the samsung website that was written on in was Samsung.com/HK.
After bootimf it up it booted up in Chinese and had English and a few other languages in the settings but not Hebrew. I live is Israel currently so I need Hebrew on it.
After I saw that I asked around here if its possible to flash any g900f firmware on my g900f (it says its g900f on the box and behind the battery although the model number is written in Chinese for a weird reason). I was told as long as its g900f I can flash any g900f firmware so I downloaded the Israel firmware and tried flashing with with Odin 3.09.
At the end it said failed and my phone stayed in download mode. It became bricked. Whenever i try to boot It now says "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies & try again"
Someone mentioned I can flash a pit file and it will fix the problem, can anyone confirm this? If so which regions pit file do I need?
What can I do to fix this problem?
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I'd its even a legitimate samsung and not a clone?
