    OK.
    This confirms that your phone is an I9515L.
    The imei has been corrupted and will have to be repaired to get a mobile signal.

    The imei can be repaired here or find a local mobile repair shop:

    The sticker says I9505, the imprint in the board also says I9505 and the system that was originally on this device is I9505... I sincerely don't know how it could possibly be a I9515L.

    That the version reads I9515L is, in my view, normal because that is the rom that was flashed into it, overwriting the original I9505 firmware.

    Read post #8 again.
    The i9515L firmware would not have installed on an i9505 because the i9515L modem does not support the same frequencies.
    I do not know what changes have been made to your phone, but a new i9515L modem does seem to be one of them.

    Step 13 shows the modem location here:

    Where are you referencing to get that modem difference/incompatibility?

    It's 16GB internal storage.

    Btw, I mentioned the phone is unstable and specifically the phone often loses connection (after getting it with great difficulty) and then freezes and crashes right after.

    So, in short, your evaluation is that I simply CAN'T get I9505 firmware on this phone and there is nothing I can do about it?

    I wish I could be quite so definitive.
    The problems I have are:
    1. You have i9195L firmware on your phone.
    How has this happened if an i9505 phone. I9505 firmware would not install with Odin but could be forced with a z3x or similar box.
    2. But, your phone is not showing any baseband. Why is this? Is it because the I9515L baseband would not flash?

    Are you getting any network connection on the firmware in post #11.

    I can get Wi-Fi to connect and sometimes get signal with the mobile operator. I managed to make a call once, but it was only a test and never picked it up on the other end.
    That only lasts for a while though, then the phone crashes/hangs and reboots nonstop for a good while... Might be an overheating problem as it's pretty hot, but I didn't have this happen when it was running I9505.
    I haven't tried using mobile data connection.
