I don't see any firmwares for Nairobi and not sure I would flash one in any case, did you happen to check what version of android was on it when u got it? I know on my G III I can flash any I747M firmware and they all load and boot fine my concern us that you get the right radio and if I had to guess I would use I8190NXXAMG1, hope that helps, when u have Odin started on your desktop and plug in your phone in d/l mode it does not show your phone?

Should be able to use any one of the i8190N firmwares. Check the link I sent above. Do you have the box the phone came in?

I believe this counts as ODIN is seeing the phone?
