Chinese firmwares B116 to B120, have a bricking problems. International versions work fine.

Dont know if your B103 rom is region modified. But latest international firmware and best stable one is B125. You can get download link from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2566453

There are custom roms and beta KK. But better to first get a hang of B125.

No, since it doesn't have any band block. My fear is to install (for example) B125 and end up with my phone bricked or in chinese. I saw they have available the firmeware in their website, so if something goes wrong i can roll it back to factory software? or there's any possibility of end up with a bricked phone?

i'm thinking on upgrade it to B125 and after that, install HYD52ROM V7


PS: my knowledge about this is not to good yet, that's why I'm so insecure about it

By the way the common bands used by the phones and modems here are HSPA/UMTS 850/2100Mhz Edge/GPRS/GSM 850/900/1800/1900Mhz

International firmware versions are safe. No worries.

To install custom roms you would have to read up on installing custom recoveries and so on.

But anyway go for B125 for now. Its easy and safe We might see an official Kitkat update soon.

CN118 to start with....
Got this amazing phone from Claro CR, so far I have installed CN118 Chinese version and TWRP recovery.
I had flash LightningKat and HYD52ROM for testing, both real nice and stable, currently running LightningKat KK version and waiting for stable version of CM11 to try on.

This is an amazing piece of device, in order to avoid bricks, just read read and read before try.
