You cannot, unless you use BROM Mode, which I do not recommend, since A125W and A125F are really different even though the model just has a change in the letter at the end, and it can brick your device permanantly.
how would it brick? could I not just reflash og firm?
Yeah you cannot, because the A125F is very different, and the A125W, if unlocked version is already equivalent to the A125F, so why would you? I think you can use A125F TWRP, and etc on A125W fine, so no need.
i wanted to use a custom kernel because the a12 is pretty slow but they all boot loop, and twrp has my storage encrypted and touch doesnt workYeah you cannot, because the A125F is very different, and the A125W, if unlocked version is already equivalent to the A125F, so why would you? I think you can use A125F TWRP, and etc on A125W fine, so no need.
and A125F will give you pretty much the exact same signal and speed capabilities as the A125W, so if that's your reasoning, there's absolutely no need to do it.
If your storage is encrypted you didn't install twrp correctly.
my twrp works now but i still cant install any kernelsIf your storage is encrypted you didn't install twrp correctly.
1. Connect to pc and boot into stock recovery
2. Factory reset
3. Reboot into download mode.
4. flash twrp tar file into the ap slot
5. reboot to recovery
6. Advanced, terminal. Type multidisabler (twice).
Or flash samsung multidisabler zip
Or, for older phones flash dmverity zip
8. Reboot to recovery from main menu (not just reboot)
Backup boot, data, super and dtbo
9. Reboot to system
You can follow my guides or you can wait for me to have some time.

i was able to ask my friend to build the kernel for me but when he tries to build the kernel he gets an error saying that the GCC version is out of date with cross compiler toolchain on your guide
Tell him to download a newer one.
