Yes it is safe you dont lose your warranty and you dont need to root the phone...but im not sure that this software can be used in other countries like Australia. I'm from slovakia so I didnt flash it yet because of this...

Instalation of system from FTF file already wipes all data in your device ! So be carefull...

I flashed a Russian ftf file a few months ago to get a newer FW version and my phone has been fine since. I did however flash back to a UK generic FW just to make sure there wasn't an issue getting this update. Only difference is mine was a c5302 when I got it and now it always shows as a c5303.... don't think this matters much?!
I would flash the Australia version but it downloads as a 'torrent' file, what do I do with that? Just change the extension to ftf?

if i install it and my network doesnt work or anything like that can i get it back to the old firmware?

this is not torrent version... downloading takes 5+ min try to flash it and give us feedback

Yeah, just reflash a generic UK one or EE, O2 whatever. Like the guy above said though it does torch all your stuff so make sure you back up....!
To get other firmwares there is that guy on XDA who has that update tool, you can use that to get original firmwares

OK but when I flash mine SP with slovak telekom version of software to this australian can I still use my phone normal (3G internet, signal of my operator ) ? with my mobile operator ?

Do you mean SIM unlocked, I don't think it will affect that but mine is SIM locked so I wouldn't know. If yoou didn't flash the Aussie FW would be interesting to see if you get your UK update before me as mine is SIM locked and yours isn't!
