Is Vodafone's firmware available for download?

Does Vodafone release its phones firmware? And if so, where? I own a Vodafone Smart 4 Turbo (890N) and have been searching for its firmware for some time now.

Hi,

 

There is some relevant information in this link > Vodafone Firmware Statement.

 

As they cannot give timeframes its best practice to keep checking the software update section in the phone.

That doesn't answer my question. I meant, is firmware available for download on the internet? As in, the current firmware?

To flash a custom rom / firmware onto a phone I would suggest visiting the xda developers site to learn the pro's and con's of doing so. 

 

Link > xda-developers.com

My phone isn't really supported, so I'd have to port everything myself, ergo, I need stock firmware.

Plus, my main usage is for debugging apps. In order to do that, I need device drivers. The ones on the internet only connect as a media device. ADB doesn't see my phone at all.

Can you at least point me towards the OEM Drivers?
