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.
