    does it void my warranty or brick my mobile??? is this Samsung official firmware?? it will work in india?? and can i get update if it is available through kies ? plz provide me detail. i am new to android and bought the mobile only 10 day ago. i dont know more about these things. thanks in adv

    • bharat

      yes you can update via kies . Try checking kies by connected ur phone with kies . as it is official update it will not void warranty . but id suggest you not to update it now as this is your new phone you may even brick your phone , do it only when official update is available in india from samsung service centre . using odin is lil risky if you havent used it before .

      • somesh

        thanks..:) :) and what about the binary counters what that does mean??

        • arafat21

          Binary counters is a security system that Samsung use to check the warranty. If it’s more than zero means your warranty is void.

          • somesh

            it can be modified or not?? if i upgrade to this xxlpz does it increase or remain 0.

      • arafat21

    hi does it matter where you from to upgrade to 4.1.2? Im from Philippines.. your advice is much appreciated.

    • arafat21

      As long as your device isn’t carrier locked or bought from China or Hong Kong, you can install any general firmware (not made for any specific carrier) for your device.

      • disqus_BoAyzCkjGW

        Thanks.. I’ll try tonight…

  • Guest

    Will i lose all data after i manual update tp 4.1.2 via odin?

    same as factory reset? Will have to wipe all data? Like new?

    • arafat21

      Technically, you shouldn’t lose data. We updated several time and didn’t lose any data till now. However, we always ask to backup data if in case something go other way.

      • Guest

        Thank you so much, I always thought i will have to reformatted mt disk to update and didn’t update
        Stupidly Waiting for the Samsung To reach my region. Anyway, Thanks a lot :)

  • Guest

    I can’t use mobile network after update, what do i do

    • arafat21

      This is an official firmware and that shouldn’t happen. If you concern about your device data then try to reflash it or you can go back to recovery and perform a wipe data task to fix this issue.

  • arafat21

    Your device shouldn’t be damaged. And it should work fine. Try flashing the firmware again, either following our tutorial or any other tutorial you preferred.
