No. You wont lose your warranty since this is a official firmware. I Think this does have multilanguage for arabic. Etc.

You won't lose your warranty as this is an official firmware. It has support for arabic language.

Successfully flashed the rom over CM12. Everything's working including WiFi, Mobile data, etc. I didn't lose any files; all my photos and videos are still there. However, you will lose your app data so better make a backup. If anyone's curious, here are the steps that I followed.

1. Download the firmware from sammobile. (Click)
2. Extract the downloaded file.
3. Run Odin (I used v3.09) as an Administrator.
4. If you're on a custom rom, reboot into recovery. Wipe user data and cache.
5. Reboot into Download mode.
6. Connect your phone via USB. Wait for the necessary drivers to install until Odin detects your phone.
7. Click on AP then browse to the extracted .tar.md5 file. Only Auto-Reboot and F.Reset Time should be checked.
8. Click Start and wait for everything to finish.
9. Once you see a PASS, you can now unplug your phone.

    THANKS TO ALL!!! Works like a charm. Now running Lollipop with PhilZ Touch and full root. Knox still at 0x0.

    Files I Used:
    Newest Samsung USB driver for mobile phones I could find.
    http://developer.samsung.com/technical-doc/view.do?v=T000000117#none
    Odin v3.07-3.10 probably works. As previously posted here v3.09 seems to work well though.
    http://androidhost.org/PVAIv
    The firmware link posted here is the same as SamMobile's and is a much faster download.
    https://cloud.mail.ru/public/b0bcdc0542ce/I9295XXUDOB4_I9295NEEDOB4_NEE.zip
    The version of PhilZ Touch Custom Recovery posted here works as well.
    https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0ByEZDplbxwxJVW54a1QzNHVXZ3c&usp=sharing
    The patched version of SuperSU mentioned also works for rooting phone.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3192716&d=1425407394

    Preflash Setup:
    Download or Move all file's above to a Windows PC. (Mine runs 8.1 x64.)
    Install the USB driver onto the PC. (Check Programs and Features to confirm install.)
    Then unpack Odin folder and files to an accessible location. (I use the Desktop.)
    Extract the .tar.md5 file from the I9295XXUDOB4_I9295NEEDOB4_NEE.zip.
    Place the firmware and PhilZ Touch .tar.md5 files in the same location as Odin.
    Leave the SuperSU files zipped up.
    Disable all virus protection and firewalls on the PC. (It seems to help prevent interruptions that may cause the flash to fail.)

    Update Firmware:
    If running stock firmware, backup important files/apps from phone, then do a factory reset. (Helps prevent a bootloop.)
    If on a custom firmware boot into recovery mode. Then wipe cache, dalvik cache, and data. (Usually power/volume up pressed together.)
    In phone turn on USB Debugging under Settings/More/Developer Options.
    Remove the SIM cards. (Not really necessary, better safe than sorry.)
    Now open the Odin folder and run Odin.x.xx.exe. (Right click and run as an Administrator.)
    Boot phone into download mode. (Usually power/volume down pressed together.)
    Connect your phone's USB to the PC.. Make sure Odin recognises your phone. (Com port will turn blue.)
    In Odin click on the AP tab. Navigate to and select the newly extracted firmware .tar.md5 file. (Check the "Auto-Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" tabs only.)
    Click the Start tab to begin the flashing process. (Do not unplug the USB or power off the PC or Phone during flash.)
    When the flash has completed you will see PASS in the Progress Window. Let the phone do a full reboot before moving on to the next step.

    Custom Recovery/Root:
    In phone turn on USB Debugging under Settings/More/Developer Options.
    Using USB connection move the SuperSU zip file from the PC to thr phone's storage. (I prefer to put it on the Micro SD card.)
    Then just as before, open the Odin folder and run Odin.x.xx.exe. (Right click and run as an Administrator.)
    Reboot phone back into download mode. (Usually power/volume down pressed together.)
    Connect your phone's USB to the PC.. Make sure Odin recognises your phone. (Com port will turn blue.)
    In Odin click on the AP tab and select the PhilZ Touch tar.md5 file. (This time check only the "F.Reset Time" tab)
    Click the Start tab to begin the flashing process. (Do not unplug the USB or power off the PC or Phone during flash.)
    Wait for the flash to complete. Then power down the phone manually while the USB is still pluged in. (Press and hold power till the phone shuts down.)
    This time reboot the phone directly into recovery mode. (Usually power/volume up pressed together.)
    Once the phone is in recovery mode select the Install From Zip option. Navigate to the SuperSU zip file and Install it.
    Once completed just click the Reboot Now option. That's it, once booted you should have full root access.

    Note:
    If you are unfamiliar with using Odin or booting into recovery or download modes please post your questions. We were all in your shoes at some point. There are no stupid questions.

    An excellent guide to get you started can be found here.

    Brand new, out of the box phone, only thing I did differently was apply the 5.0.1 update through wifi. Is that a problem?

    Edit: I made a backup, but my phone is no longer showing up on Kies. Did... did I just brick a 300€ phone that I haven't even begun to pay for?
    EDIT: NEVERMIND FOR NOW! After several attempts, it went through... continuing to follow the guide, will post updates...
    Final edit: OK, I got it now. Full root access and all! This was kinda useless post, but I panicked pretty bad when my phone got temporarily bricked. For what it's worth, if anyone is having the same problem as me; I disabled virus protection and firewall, and then Odin was able to go through with flashing the firmware.

    Thanks for the guide, it works!

    yey!

    Successfully updated my i9295 from 4.2.2 straight to 5.0.1, which I was a bit uneasy about at first. I'm in Australia and this worked a treat. I had a few hiccups that a few reboots fixed. I didn't have to re-flash, I just rebooted. I didn't get the wifi dropout issue. Though I think the phone got a bit confused at one point since I use hangouts for SMS' and it suddenly wouldn't send any sms through hangouts or the native messages app. But again, I just rebooted and it righted itself.

    If in doubt, reboot :D I read through this entire thread first though so I knew what I was getting into, and thanks to everyone for sharing their issues.
