I think it depends on which rom you use, rom cook or stock.

If you use rom cook then you can find a rom in I9500 Development section.
If you use stock rom then you can download the suitable version here: www.samsung-updates.com/‎


You're gonna need odin, Kies to flash the rom. Further instructions you can search in the forum I think.

Hi,

Thank once again for your help. I´m not sure what rom is used because I buy the phone from a guy that was selling in a small market, I am pretty sure is a copy, the brand is SPRD. I do think that Samsung rooms are no suitable for this device so It as to be one used by this brand and model. The room in used is jdq39.i9500zsuamdf.
I´m new in android area, up until now I´ve been used IOS phone, so I be thankful to any help I can get to put this phone running.


Regards,

Carlos

Sorry I don't really get it. Basically is your phone Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (causer there are different version for Galaxy S4 I9505, I9506...).

You can check this by going to Settings ->More-> About Device-> MOdel number to make sure.

Regarding the SPRD, where is it on the phone ? I think it means Singapore.

Hi,

The phone is a clone, not an original Samsung, it was made in china. The SPRD I think stands for spreadtrum. After some research it came to a conclusion that this phone are also known as Feiteng.

So my main problem is not sure what rom to use.

Regards

Carlos

Well. sorry Carlos, in this case i don't know which rom to use to flash your phone cause Chinese Branded Phones are not well supported on XDA.

Let's wait for someone else who may know the solutions.

Good luck !
