    Thank you, the manual update step was clear enough to follow. Just want to add that the steps do not clear user data, so you wouldn’t have to setup your phone from scratch after the update.

    • Yes, it also has other languages. You can change it from setting-“Language and input

  2. Is it normal for it to be stuck on the Samsung logo when it boots up?

  3. Will this work for the AT&T model or is it only for the 800F series?

  4. Downloaded firmware for SM-G9008W from the provided link and went thru the update successfully using ODIN, however once rebooted the phone, got unstopped prompt “Unfortunately , Google Play Services has stopped”.

    Had to uninstall many apps as they stop working / missing files. Also lost GMAIL account and could not log to GMAIL again due to the error prompt above. Powered off and on the device several times to no avail, also uninstalled and installed Google Services and Google Play Store by downloading the latest file. Any ideas?
    Thank you.
