[Q] Failed firmware update on SM-P605
Looking for a bit of advice here with my newly purchased Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (P605).
I'm in Australia and I bought it from what I thought was a reseller with the local version but when the device turned up it had an international power plug and what looks to be a Hong Kong ROM.
So first thing I did was try and flash it with the Australian unbranded firmware and every time Odin fails with an FAIL! (Size) error. I've tried both the unbranded and the Telstra firmware with no luck. The only way I could get the device back to a working state was by installing the Taiwan ROM (I expect the Hong Kong ROM may have worked too).
Anyone got any suggestions as to how to resolve this? Having the Chinese keyboard pop up frequently when I connect my bluetooth keyboard is pretty annoying. I've read some stuff about this perhaps being related to partitioning?
Other options I'm looking at are flashing the device with the UK firmware and even the South Korean 4.4.2 firmware. I've got a Galaxy S5 with 4.4.2 and I think it is much nicer than 4.3 - would be good to standardise the OS on both as the little inconsistencies are a bit annoying.
Appreciate any thoughts and thanks in advance.
