    hello, is there any help/overview/table about compatibility of firmware/hardware combinations? I am on a 4 month visit in the Philippines, my SONY Z3 desintegrated in the heat – yes, magnetic charge contacts pulled out from the case, next rear and last fron glas separated from the housing and SONY Philippines expressly stated, they do not repair illegal imports. My foreign passport with Visa did not help anything. Baught samsung galax A5(2016) only to find out, cannot be changed to European language. Now I read, not every European Firmware is compatible with A5(6). But I can not download all possibilities. Does anyone know of some help?
