Unfortunately, when you install CWM was brick. Can someone give a link to the factory rom?

Model: GT-I9500
Build number: JDQ39.I9500XUAMDE

Android in: 4.2.2

Data from the label under the battery:
Model:GT-i9500
FCC ID:A3LGTi9500
Rated:3.8V 1300mA

I've tried a lot of ROM needrom.com but still brick. Error message BROM ERROR: S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) or NOT NAND FLASH.
I tried all methods of replacing preloader.bin. The only Rom succeeded to flash through SP Flash Tool unfortunately the screen is black (sound, touch, charging function), I can not because I have therefore to cwm to flash through SP or MTK Tool Droids I have not got the right ROM. Can anyone help me? Thank you very much.

sorry to hear, once again, backup before messing your phone...

do you mean you bought "Quad Cord MTK6589" but got "dual core MT6572" ?
have you consulted your seller in Aliexpress already, I definitely would, maybe they can help you? many sellers there root the phones ready for their customers, they might have solution for you, if you lucky...

maybe someone more skillful can tell the right prosedure and rom...

Unfortunately, this is so the dealer is a crook. No communication, I asked the factory ROM but no response. I am glad that phone ever came. I ordered 1 January 2014. 17 February 2014 arrived!! After several reminders. Unfortunately, I was duped.

O' dear, too bad.
Have you tried to 'open dispute', or tried to contact Aliexpress and ask help from there? Aliexpress should be responsible for it's sellers, and take actions to help you. Although, it is not easy case, since you have done your own 'adjusting' to the phone...

My orders there have been success, minor 'hick ups' but basicly OK, I choosed seller by good feedback and reputation, had some luck, too.

I'm so new to this android world, can't help you in 'technics', sorry.

Hey. The dispute can not be opened because the order has been closed. AliExpress anything because I damaged the phone itself.
