Install Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Firmware on Galaxy Core Prime SM-G360F

38

Samsung has been pretty busy with sending the latest software update to many of its eligible devices for quite a few months now. The reason that makes the update so special this time is the Lollipop upgrade. Android Lollipop is definitely the best interaction the OS has witnessed so far. It bring heavy tweaks in terms of the look and feel of the user interface, as well as new features. Having updated to Lollipop, you will also experience batter and faster performance, smooth animation and better battery backup.

One noticeable thing about Samsung’s Lollipop rollout has mainly been for the new and older flagships. However,when we see a low-end phone like the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime getting major OS updates along with the high-end devices, it feels cool. The Galaxy Core Prime is rather a new phone launched in the November 2014 with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box and now it has been receiving the latest and greatest version of Android. Yes, I mean the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

The European LTE model of the Galaxy Core Prime (SM-G360F) has been getting the new update for a day now. The Lollipop update has started rolling out in Poland, followed by Bosnia and Herzegovina. You live in these countries, you might have already got the OTA notification. In case you did not receive the OTA yet, you can trigger it manually by tapping the Update Now option under Settings> About> Software update.

If you have rooted your Galaxy Core Prime SM-G360F or have installed a custom recovery, you might not get the official OTA. However, it does not mean  that you won’t be able to enjoy Lollipop at all. Since the firmwares files are available for download, you can install them manually using Odin. If you do not belong to Poland or Bosnia and Herzegovina, you can still download the Android 5.0.2 firmware from below and flash it right away.

Both the available firmware are unbranded and it means that they can be installed on any Galaxy Core Prime with model number SM-G360F regardless of country and region. The only thing you must take care before installing the firmware is to make sure that your phone is not locked to a network provider.

  • Jonathan Fallon

    The only issue i had was when you flashed it and it rebooted. It got stuck in a boot loop so i just pulled out the battery, went into recovery and did a factory reset.Then i rebooted the phone gave it 5-10 mins to boot then it was back to normal, just what it was like at the start.
