I got a C7 SM-C7000 from China. Now I'm trying to install a Hong Kong firmware on it and of course got the partition size error in Odin. I searched around and found one pit file for my model Hong Kong. I'm attaching the file however I'm concerned about it being the right file.

My Phone

  • Model - SM-C7000
  • Variant - China
  • Storage - 32 GB

Can anyone tell me if I can flash the attached pit file or link me my phone's Hong Kong pit file? Thanks

Pit file I want to flash

From what I've been told the pit file for HK and China versions are the same.

I am experiencing the same problem as you and am hoping for a solution.. see here: https://www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35053&page=2

  • Ha small, very true :) – Ron Jan 14 '17 at 18:47
  • @VivekJi no solution found so far. I think the problem is, all the pit files are for the 64 GB variant – user3677331 Jan 16 '17 at 15:10
  • There is definitely something up with the pit files. I also have the 32GB device. And the partition structure defined in all the pit files is for 64GB version. The only strange thing is that I'm able to flash the Chinese versions but not the HK even though they apparently have the same pit – Ron Jan 16 '17 at 20:06

first my story. i am very very early anthusiastic of android. know nothing about it. i bought sm-c7000 and it was on tgy (HK) version with play store. i love to root my android phones and kept searching how to root my c7. then i found a post by javad on xda and was able to root install xposed etc. one night i thought to remove root because xposed modules were not working well. so unrooted device in su. restarted and then the accident happened. my device was bricked. now i tried and tried and tried to install hk versions from sammobile but in vain. always got auth error or invalid data error showing data is too big. then i tried smart switch and downloaded by entering model number and serial number of my device. it was a huge happiness as downloaded completed and my phone booted. but when i used it was now china version with no play store.i was again in deep sorrow. then i again started searching. again file big error. searched the net and found that it was partition error and i need pit file. but after searching i revealed that pit file for both tgy and chc are same. then fighting with odin i got the solution. solution is that first flash only ap file and it will give u error at userdata ext 4. dont worry. remove mobile and again put it into download mode and now flash bl, cp and csc files only. remeber not to touch repartition. and untick reboot also. after flashing reboot into recovery and wipe data and cache partition. now your phone will be tgy with play store etc. enjoy and if u think my discovery is helpfull pls hit thanks. enjoy
