    Glad to be of help :). I do definitely recommend you flash this if you want to fix the yellow hue problem. I never had it but if you have it adjusting the white balance will certainly help.

    Hi, I’m from Sri Lanka.. I didn’t receive latest update yet. So I thought to manually update. After updating manually will I able to get future updates OTA? Please respond soon, because I wanna update it soon.

    Thanks
