    if you follow above instructions, you will get nowhere. First odinize the file with the tool by Doky73 at XDA-devs.

    just another example of people who don’t know whar they are writing about. Otherwise firmware is interchangeable between GT-S5363 and GT-S5360 models. Only diffence is cosmetic changes to the case and plastics back cover colour.
