Lightbulb [Q] Is it possible change S5 variant

I have a g900s sktelecom variant and I would like to know if it can be flashed with a firmware for another variant?

I already tried flashing a firmware for g900f but didn't work. It gives "auth fail" at sbl1 or something right after start.

Thanks in advance.

Question is, WHY would you flash a different variant firmware.

No, you can't flash Stock firmwares to other variants, some custom roms however are compatible with multiple variants.
CURRENT DEVICE:

Phone: SAMSUNG SM-G900F
Firmware: Stock ANG9(XEF)
Rooted: Yes
Recovery: PhilZ recovery v6.26.6
Kernel: Stock
Other info: Xposed with lots of cool modules(credits to the creators )


Love this phone more than all the ones I had before COMBINED. If you're not sure wether to buy this phone or not, I recommend you do.

And remember to have a look at this if you are a noob and/or curious what might be behind this link.

You could try to convert it into a iPhone 6
