Procedure to install Android Oreo on Galaxy J5 Prime
Step 1: Download and Extract both the files on your PC.
Step 2: Power off your phone and boot it into downloading mode. Refer:
Step 3: Keeping the phone in download mode, connect it to PC using standard USB cable.
Step 4: On your PC, launch the downloaded ‘Odin Multi Downloader3-v3.13.1′ tool.
Then confirm whether your phone has successfully connected to PC or not. For that, check the ID: COM section in the Odin window has turned light blue or not. Also an Added message has appeared in the message box window or not.
Note: If such thing doesn’t happen then it’s more likely to be problem with the Samsung USB drivers. So again install the USB drivers from the links given in Pre-Requisites section. If the problem still persists try changing USB cable or the USB port.
Step 5: Click on the Options tab and tick the Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time options.
Note: Do not tick the Re-partition option. Don’t use the PIT tab either.
Step 6: Click on the BL button present on the Odin window and select file with ‘BL’ in it’s name (for example: BL_G570FXXU1CRL2_CL14263629_QB21073709_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5) from the firmware package file.
Step 7: Similarly click on the CP button and select file with ‘CP’ in its name.
Step 8: Next click on the CSC button and select file with ‘HOME_CSC’ in its name.
Note: Normal CSC contains an instruction that allows Odin to wipe out complete data while HOME_CSC contains instruction to only allow wipe of cache. But when a downgrade is done (example: from Oreo back to Nougat) a factory reset is must. So use normal CSC at that time.
Step 9: Then click on USERDATA button and select file with ‘USERDATA’ in its name. Ignore this step if there is no such file.
Step 10: Finally click on the AP button and select file with ‘AP’ in its name.
Note: The AP file will take little time to load. So be patient and wait.
Step 11: That’s all! After doing everything as mentioned above, let’s begin the firmware flashing process. So press the Start button present on the Odin window.
Note: As soon as the process starts, your phone will automatically boot itself. Do not disconnect USB cable from PC as it will cause interruption.
When the flashing completes successfully, the ID: COM section will turn green with a message ‘Pass’ on it. This will confirm that your Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime has successfully upgraded to Android 8.0.0 Oreo G570FXXU1CRL2 official firmware. Now you can safely disconnect phone from your PC.
Note: If this flashing process fails, or if your phone gets stuck into boot loop, then close the Odin window, again go into download mode and implement the complete procedure from the beginning.
Finally! Your Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime smartphone has successfully updated to latest official Android 8.0.0 Oreo G570FXXU1CRL2 firmware. To confirm the same, go to Menu » Settings » About Phone.
