I bought a new S5 for my girlfriend who is in love with Samsung. The phone is an unlocked G900F coming from a UK dealer. After first boot I checked the software status and the phone installed an update. Now it has G900FXXU1ANCE G900FVFG1ANC6 on.
Since I wanted to install all her previous stuff from her old S3 I rooted the phone and installed twrp 2.7. After backing up the EFS partition and making a nandroid backup I tried to install the latest Vodafone firmware because it is her provider.
But Odin fails when flashing hidden.ext4. It might be important that after the FAIL message the phone cannot boot again, however, when I install twrp again, it boots into system with no changes. I tried different PC, different version of ODIN, reinstalled the drivers and with and without SIM and SD Card.
Could somebody help me? Am I trying to install and older firmware? I had no luck with Kies3 as well (tried recover the phone) because Kies lost the connection to the phone when I choose emergency recovery.
Many thanks in advance.
