No, they can't. If your phone has WW firmware image, it doesn't matter what your location is and weather your country has its own firmware image or not. You can and you should update to the WW firmware and strictly only WW firmware. You could do it manually without any risks at all. The IN firmware is not for your phone, it's for the limited phones running on IN image (which has no difference at all from the WW image). Go ahead with the manual update without any hesitation ?architgenius said:Mods should clarify the difference between IN and WW. Can indian sets running on ww flash IN safely?? Is IN even meant for India???
