I dont recommend flashing firmware for different varients of the S5.

I HIGHLY recommend you reflash your carrier's firmware. Then just flash one of the International ROMs, which will not alter your baseband.

I didn't flash firmware from another varient of the s5.
I just downdloaded the international version of my Galaxy S5 SM-G900F.
I am flashing now my carrier's firmware to test again.
If you have something else in mind pleese reply to me.
thanks

Do you think that this problem maybe came from the CSC?? Because I saw that is changed!
