    No, better to install the correct firmware if anything.

    Your phone is compatible.
    Either the wrong model number or problems with your phone.

    on the back of the phone it tells me the model number and the serial number so theres not fault in that, and when i leave download mode it just takes my back to the bootloop (the samsung galaxy s6 screen)

    Do you have Recovery mode?
    Volume up + home button + Power button.

    In recovery mode wipe cache then wipe data/ factory reset.

    Ok, options are:
    1. Try to reinstall firmware.
    What do you know about the phone?
    Was it bought in UK?
    What was original language on first start up?
    Was there any branding on the phone?

    2. Flash a custom recovery to remove the boot loop.
