    I have a SM-930F from a Portuguese carrier, MEO.
    My last security patch was from 1/06 and my carrier dont release a new one. and it already exists a July patch for other carriers in Portugal e a new August on some country's.
    Can i use a italian firmware? for the same SM-930F? does it have portuguese language?

    thanks all

    Yes i believe u can, BUT U RUN THE RISK OF FULLING BRICKING UR FONE, changing the firmware is worse than trying to root ur fone... SO BE VERY AWARE OF THE RISKS..

    You shouldn't have much trouble doing so. I'm pretty sure you have less of a chance of a hard brick than a bad root exploit. I would go ahead and have the stock Portugal firmware in case the Italian firmware fails.

    Yes, Smart Switch or Helium are good backup/restore programs. If you have game data to back up use helium, otherwise Smart Switch is fine

    all my data is backed up on my laptop so Smart Switch should be fine.
    im downloading a spannish firmware with the new August update from Sammobile.
    lets see if i dont mess this up

    thanks all
