    I have to debrand my phone?

    • This upgrade is only for open market phones, if your phone is from operator, you can wait until nougat released for your model or you have to debrand to install this firmware.

    Hey, thanks for the tutorial. Having troubles though. After HiSuite reboots my phone (method 2) it tries to verify the update and gets to 2% then fails and says reboot phone. Hasn’t messed anything up but it just won’t let me update, tried a couple times now. I’m on the VNS-L23C605B120 version, Columbia dual sim (international version).
