Default [Q] Flash German Stock Rom on French device

Hello, I want to flash the German stock Rom on my french n9005. I don't have root and the device is completely stock.
The reason why I want to change to German stock is that the camera shut sound cannot be disabled in the french Rom without rooting the phone which would void my warranty.

As I have never flashed a Rom, what do I need to do?

Am I right that by replacing the stock rom with another one I won't lose warranty (because the internal counter will not be affected)?
Thanks in advance!

Could you please tell me which software I need to flash it? Where can I get the German Stock Rom?
Will I be able to get OTA updates with the new Rom (just like it was a German device)?

Better try another ROM than German. My German stock ROM didn't have the option to disable shutter sound.
I'm rooted, so I chose xposed framework and wanam to disable system sounds (also the boot sound).
I think most EU ROMs won't let you disable the shutter sound.

I flashed the UK ROM because i read somewhere that the option is available there, but it isn't. I did a factory reset and then the language was french again, although i the code *#1234# is showing that i have the UK firmware now.

Does someone know which stock rom does have the feature to disable camera shutter sound?

Thanks in advance

I was just wondering why the UK rom (BTU) was on french language just from the beginning when the phone started for the first time when i had flashed the new rom.

Now I have the german stock DBT and the camera is at least silent when the phone is on silent mode. That's ok for me.

Thank you.

I think you want to check out a rom which is non-EU as I think this regulation is EU-wide. Check out sammobile.com. At least you can see which countries are available and then maybe ask in the region specific sub forum on the main page.
