Hi

I have a GT-P5100 which is not tied to a particular carrier but is running with and O2 Sim card. I want to upgrade to 4.2.2 fro 4.0.4. The current firm ware is as follows:

Product Code: BTU
PDA: P5100XWBLF1
CSC: P5100BTUBLF1
MODEM: P5100XXLE4

I have searched the firmware database on this site and see the option for either a Vodafone upgrade or an O2 upgrade. Since I use O2 I was thinking that would be best. The firmware I am considering is:

Product Code: O2U
PDA: P5100XXDMJ2
CSC: P5100O2UDMJ1
MODEM: P5100XXDMG1

Would this work? Do you foresee any problems? Is there a better alternative you could recommend?

Thanks
Roger

Should be no problem, and if you are happy to have the O2 splash screen and widgets, then go ahead.

The alternative is to install firmware from another country - France XEF, Germany DBT for example. Both will have an English option.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will take a look at the others you suggest. I am new to this so may I ask a quick follow up? I have downloaded Odin and the firmware to my Laptop. I assume is correct to do the upgrade from the laptop. The instructions are not quite specific for a first timer!

Hi did you find any working links for the stock firmware? I have found ones for optus and for unbranded but all links send you to rapidgator or terrafile and the terrafile file isn't found and the rapidgator mirror downloads an incomplete zip.... I stupidly flashed my p5100 with p5110 rom and desperately need to download one for the p5100 :-(
Thanks in advance for any help!!!

TOP 10 LATEST firmware for P5100 here:

http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/1/?model=GT-P5100&pcode=0#firmware

If you want a specific country then change TOP 10 LATEST to country of your choice.

You may find that Odin will not install (FAIL)
If so, try rooting and using Mobile, Odin to install.
