  11. You can try the Russian version, but before doing that, try reinstalling the same firmware first. And if you got the failed error in the first attempt, it could be due to some other reason. Please check if you have not made any other mistake while installing it.

    If all things seem fine, give a try to Odin 1.85: http://d-h.st/em3

  19. If an update is available from Samsung for your device and region and you have not rooted the device, you can update it via Kies or from Settings> About> Software Update.

  20. Just updated the post with three firmwares for Philippines. If you have non-carrier branded device, you can install the one for Indonesia, Malaysia, etc.
