    Rootin another different models' firmware to Galaxy S5

    hi,
    I have a galaxy S5, it is from China and it is original. I downloaded antutus apk file from my computer and transfered it to my phone then installed the apk file. And i benchmarked my phone. It is real. The model name is SM-G9006V.
    As i checked all the samsung galaxy s5 phones on earth have the same cpus and gpus except the models with octa core and korean models. I live in Turkey, in Turkey model name for galaxy S5 is G900 or G900F or G900FQ. It doesnt matter language for me so doesnt matter if the firmware includes Turkish language.
    My question is, would it be a problem if i root G900F's firmware to my G9006v?
    currently my phone works, i can make calls and search the web. I don't have google play store, baidu search engine is on my home screen and i want it to be google. And i think there will be more problems in the future i think, because of the restrictions of China government on my phones software.
    I tried these:
    a>GoogleServicesFramework(Check your phone via RE explorer)
    b>GoogleLoginService
    c>Google play store(lastest version is better)
    With latest versions. Play store is opening but not connecting to internet, first time it asked me for my gmail account and i logged in. It is currently shows that i am logged in to my google account on play store. But play store doesnt connect to internet. And i also tried downloading apps from the browser hoping it directs me to play store properly but phone software doesnt recognize play store(i think).


    So would it be any problem if i install another model's firmware?(I personally do not think it will be a problem because all the hardware are the same). And would it make any features disappear?
    Or how can i get over these problems with different solutions?

    hello Hejok
    if you have an original chinan device (G9006V) you must stay with this original firmware
    you can only try custom roms for this device

    the only way to know if your device is original is with this app:
    phone info: [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    and post:
    manufacturer/brand
    phone model
    original CSC code
    product code
    bootloader version
    baseband version
    pda version
    csc version
    hardware/board

    sometimes you have wrong info with antutus or cpuZ

    best regards

    The app u said is craching. It is not opening i think because of google play is not working.
    Here are the specs and benchmark:

    I think you will find that there isn't a permanent solution until a custom firmware is available.

    This XDA link is worth watching:

    i heard that g900f model's roms can be flashed to g9006v, might it be true? And how can i root my s5 without cf auto root, because there is no cf root available for my model.
