    I've owned several Samsung smartphones...

    This is hard to believe but EACH one had one or more dead pixels...

    Some of the phones had a dead/stuck pixel from the very start. The others, after several months suffered with a stuck pixel or two.

    They were always blue, red and yellow. Despite running apps claiming to remove dead/stuck pixels, nothing worked...

    I guess quality control in Samsung isn't that great.

    With regards to Lollipop, a huge update should roll later on this month or the next...

    Caution is advised regarding stuck pixels on AMOLED screens. While LCD pixels can get stuck and unstuck over time, and flashing RGB in sequence might eventually cause them to get unstuck, AMOLED pixels do not behave the same. Using the same stuck pixel fixers will (in theory at least) deteriorate the pixels over time as the AMOLED panel itself has a (more) finite lifespan than LCD panels, given the pixels themselves emit light. No idea if AMOLED pixels get unstuck by alternating them on / off.

    Remember that AMOLED is an emissive technology while LCD is a transmissive technology every time you want to compare the two, to see what works for which technology better.

    Been using it on my Nexus 5...I don't like it. Some minor functionality downgrades but these minor things are part of what I use everyday (specifically the screen for app-switching no longer ****s off if you press it again when you have no apps running). Unlocking it was weird at first, you have to swipe down-up instead of left to right but I got used to it.

    KIES only updates if the version firmware is newer, so there will be some changes

    Google the firmware version and search for changelog, or check samsungs site, see if they have any changelog

    Unless KIES thinks your firmware was different to the stock because of Root, and updated you back to stock, but wouldn't have thought so

    Make sure only F-RESET TIME & AUTO REBOOT are checked

    Do not check RE-PARTITION

    AP - is where you load the .TAR ROM (DO NOT UNZIP FROM .TAR)

    You need to put the phone into DOWNLOAD MODE & install Samsung Drivers

    I don't know what will happen with Poland ROM in Turkey for Carrier, Network etc

    Might be fine, might need to find a modem/radio zip for Turkey to flash

    Worst comes to worst, flash back to stock Turkey ROM
