          Please help me with the right firmware Android 4.1.2 for Europe (The Netherlands).

          I installed I9082XXAME1_I9082OXXAME1_EUR but the Samsung logo (first boot-up) took over 2 hours and still running. I interrupted that process and went back to 4.2.2. After that i downgrade again to 4.1.2 (I9082XXAMAC_I9082OXXAMA5_DBT). But this time the complete phone break down. Only blocks visible at the screen. Via Odin thank god back to 4.2.2.

          So i hope you have the right link for me to go back to 4.1.2 because of the dual sim features and data connection / availability speech. See my other threat.
