    Thread Possible to flash SM-205W (Canada) to stock ROM with Android 10?

    Hey guys, Canada has not received the Android 10 update for the A20 (SM-205W). Is it possible to flash the stock ROM from another country? I'm looking for a stock Samsung Android 10 experience as I would be using this to test my apps, so no custom ROMs.
