    English firmware for Taiwan SM-N9208 wanted

    Hello,
    i hope someone can help me. I have got a SM-N9208 from Taiwan. The problem is that even when i chose English as the language while setting up the phone some of the writing is still in Chinese.

    Is there any ROM i can flash over it or convert it to some other version so i get it all in English?

    This is the current software details

    Baseband N9208ZTU3BPF1
    Build MMB29K.N9208ZTS2BPF1
    Android 6.0.1

    Any help is appreciated

    You should be able to install another N9208 firmware, but you will need the matching PIT file.

    Choose your firmware from here:

    Find the matching PIT file here:
    SM-N9208 ODI multi CSC ( BNG INS INU NPL SLI SLK )
    NOBLELTE_EUR_OPEN.pit
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    SM-N9208 OLB multi CSC ( CAM GLB MYM SMA THL XID XME XSE XTC XTE XXV )
    NOBLELTE_EUR_OPEN_HIDDEN150M.pit
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    SM-N9208 ZZT ( TGY )
    NOBLELTE_CHN_TW.pit
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]


    NOTE: If the firmware unzips to 5 files, use the following to flash in Odin:
    AP + CP + CSC ( the CSC has the PIT file inside)

    Thank you for your help. I have downloaded the following

    Firmware N9208XXU2BPE3_N9208OLB2BPE3_N9208XXU2BPE3_HOME.tar
    PIT NOBLELTE_EUR_OPEN_HIDDEN150M

    Added the firmware as AP and the Pit as Pit. When i try to flash i get a fail in Odin 3.11. USB debugging and OEM unlock are ticked. The firmware i downloaded is only one file. Any ideas?

    Put
    AP in AP
    CP in CP
    CSC in CSC

    Odin settings:
    Re-partition
    F.Reset Time
    Auto reboot

    You may have to flash more than once.

    Ok, in that case you put the .tar file in AP and the pit file in PIT. of Odin.
    Odin settings are the same.

    The original firmware on your phone is newer than the firmware you are trying to install.
    Downgrading is being blocked.
    Wait until you can find an update newer than 3BPF1
