    I live in India and have bought my Note 2 from Oman in November 2012. Recently, I have been getting too many reminders from Samsung to update my firmware. I am scared that if I download and update the software my phone may crash and since the warranty is covered only in Oman, I will be stranded if something goes wrong. Are my fears unfounded? Should I go ahead and get the updates installed? What are the benefits of updating the software? Do I get additional features?

    What model is your phone and what Android version does your phone currently have? Generally the updates contain security fixes, and new or improved features or functionality.

    Model : Samsung galaxy note 2 gt-n7100
    android version : 4.1.1

    My main concern is - since I live in India and the phone was bought in Oman, if I update the firmware of my Note 2 with the firmware which I downloaded in India, is there any risk that my phone will brick?
