Another question, with that rom does internal storage is reduced to 16 gigs on the E980 or does it stay at 32 gigs?
Sorry for the off topic.
I check on here everyday and everyday I see report of softbrick. Most people are able to use the flash tool to restore back to stock tho, I just don't wanna fool with it. I'm using the V5 rom. No, I haven't tried the official update for the Korean model. Yea, some people are able to make it work but you don't know how many steps they took , also their steps aren't consolidated in a way that's clear for people that don't know what they are doing to follow. I also read like you may need to switch recovery for different steps of the process, that sounds like a pain. There is a fix to make it 32 but you'll have to read through the pages to find it
Edit : I feel what makes it difficult is the rom is done by someone that speaks much pretty no English, there is not much communication between the community and the developer.
Edit2: if you want it cheap. You can buy one with broken front glass and replace it. I bought mine for 150, 25 for the digitizer, and just did the glass replacement today, it wasn't bad
