Install Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Firmware on Galaxy Grand Prime SM-G530H


Samsung launched the Galaxy Grand series years ago to especially for the emerging markets where people prefer smartphones with a big screen, decent hardware specs but at an affordable price. Many years have gone by and the Grand line is still here with more choices to attract more customers. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is a mid-range phone that was released back in September 2014 with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box.

The phone did not witness any major OS upgrade since it’s release, but Samsung seems to have kept its promise of upgrading the phone’s software to Android Lollipop. If you own the Galaxy Grand Prime with model number SM-G530H and have been waiting for the sweetest take on Android, that is Lollipop, you finally have a reason to rejoice.

The Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for the Grand Prime (SM-G530H) is finally out and available for download. We probably don’t need to tell you that Lollipop is a very big update that brings a completely new user interface with a lot of tweaks and changes. Having updated your Grand Prime to the latest software, you would enjoy faster performance and better battery life.


The firmware installation procedure described below has been tested successfully, but it does not necessarily mean that it’s 100% safe. Make sure to follow the given steps carefully and don’t hesitate to clear any doubts before proceeding. Just a reminder, we won’t be responsible for any mishap so jump into things at your own liability.


  • Download Odin 3.09 or 3.10.7 from here and extract the zip.
  • Download and install the latest Samsung USB Drivers or Kies on your computer.
  • Enable USB Debugging on your Grand Prime. You can find a detailed tutorial for the same here.
  • Charge your device to ensure 60% battery juice at least.
  • Since you might need to perform a data factory reset after installing the Lollipop firmware for better performance, it’s a good idea to backup all important data before attempting the installation.

Download Lollipop Firmware for Grand Prime SM-G530H

The firmware provided below is originally meant for Russian users but because it’s unbranded and contains many languages including English, it can be installed on any Galaxy Grand Prime SM-G530H that is not locked to a network operator. More firmwares will be added as they come!

Install Lollipop Firmware on Grand Prime

  1. Download the firmware and extract the Zip to get the firmware file with .tar.md5 extension.
  2. Turn off your Galaxy Grand Prime and boot it into the Download Mode by pressing the Volume Down+Home+Power buttons simultaneously for 2-3 seconds. When you see the warning screen with yellow exclamation mark, press the Volume Up key to enter the Download Mode.
  3. Now launch the Odin tool as administrator and then connect your phone to the PC using the USB cable provided with your device.
  4. When Odin detects your phone, the ID:COM port on Odin will turn blue and you will see “Added!” text in Odin’s message box.odin-3.10.6-firmware-flash
  5. Now click the AP button and add the firmware file (G530HXXU2BOH5_G530HSER2BOH5_SER.tar.md5) to it.
  6. Click the Options tab on Odin and check Auto-Reboot and F. Reset Time. These options and enabled in Odin by default, so all you need to do it is to make sure that they are checked.
  7. You are now all set to go. Just click the Start button on Odin to trigger the firmware installation. It might take a few minutes before the installation completes, so wait patiently.odin-3.10.6-firmware-installation-pass
  8. When the firmware installation completes, you’ll see PASS! message on Odin. It’s the green signal that indicates a successful installation. In case you get Fail! message, make sure you have gone through the preparations carefully. You can also try rebooting your PC and phone and a different USB cable and port. You can also refer to our exhaustive guide on firmware installation using Odin.
  9. Anyway, your Galaxy Grand Prime will reboot automatically and when it boots up, you’ll be greeted by Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

Done! In case you face issues like buggy performance, error with network connectivity, device overheat or battery drain, you should try a data/factory reset via stock recovery. If you don’t know how to do it, head over to our detailed tutorial on the procedure.

    Just tried the “Indonesia” firmware cause it has the baseband (XCU) and it finally flashed successfully, so it does need a matching baseband apparently..

  • handakes

    yeah, i wonder if that’s the case,too

  • handakes

    tried the Egypt one, same error..weird..
    i get it that this error occurs when i use the wrong firmware, and the firmware does say “XXU” when my baseband is really “XCU”..
    i can’t find any lollipop firmware in your list with the baseband “XCU” other than the Panama one, and i am afraid to flash that and then find out that i have some localization issues or language encoding bugs because of it..
    thanks again for the continued help and the speedy replies..

  • Steven

    Ok . If we are going to fibd a firmware, is it required to have a same middle in the baseband version. Such as XCU,XXU etc.

  • Steven

    Umm . If we are going to find a firmware, is it required to have a same middle in the baseband version. Such as XCU,XXU etc.

  • Well, it should have installed fine. anyway, we also have the Lollipop firmware for Egypt. Try that too.

  • handakes

    Hey there,
    my baseband is G530HXCU1AOE2 , so i downloaded the firmaware ( but when i tried to flash it, i got a fail message and the phone showed the red colored error line “SECURE CHECK FAIL : aboot.”

  • Steven

    I install another firmware again with780 mb, will it add on my memory along with the first one?or the first ons will remove to my phone?

  • Steven

    Thank you

  • murtaza hyder

    hi Joseph,
    i just wanted to know how did u flash back to kitkat, beacuse i am having the same problem. Rakesh i really need your help here,
    heres my email:

  • Odin 3.10.7

  • Steven

    Ok if nothing will change. Proceeding in that kind of matter what version of odin I should use?

  • No significant change. Yes, you can proceed with that.

  • Steven

    Is there any changes when I install a 5.0.2 to 5.0.2 that comes from another country?
    And is it ok to perform that?

  • Yes.

  • Steven

    And may I still use this odin to downgrade and install sometging on my device?
    Am I required to have a rooted device before using odin?

  • Steven

    Ummm. May I install a same version of firmware but from another countries?

  • Steven

    Ok. Now thanks to you. I already upgrade my device into 5.0.2 lollipop, but I have problem and question. Why does my phone is not compatible in some apps such as S Health if I already have higher firmware
    Is it okay if I root my phone? I am thinking if my device status will become MODIFIED/CUSTOM.
    May I downgrade and upgrade my device ysing the Odin that I already used?

  • Well, one should always be careful while doing such things. As for Kies, keep it closed while you use Odin. Read the following tutorial in detail:

  • Steven

    Is there anything in Odin that I should be careful?

  • Yes.

  • Steven

    So that means that I can use another countries firmware and use it in the odin3 3.9

    Is this firmware reliable to my device? My baseband is G530HXCU1AOE2

  • Yes. In other words, if you can use any SIM card in your phone, it’s unlocked or unbranded, or if you have purchased your device from a store and not from some network provider, it’s SIM unlocked.

  • Steven

    Are you saying that whenever I change my sim card in different types of carrier, then when I open there is no password needed? Then my phone is NOT locked

  • Try a different firmware.

  • Doubts that this model will get the Marshmallow update.

  • Jalal Buledi

    Doubts? about what bro? say clearly

  • Rush Ko

    please reply Admin dont know what to do

  • Rush Ko

    i have encountered an error it says Binary file is invalid

  • If you can use any SIM card on your phone, it’s not locked.

    G531HXXU0APC2 on grand prime SM-G530H?

  • Xar

    Thank you for this tutorial Rakesh! I have been waiting for the update for forever, and was on the fence about doing this. But because my phone was so laggy, I decided to bite the bullet. My reward is my phone is now running Lollipop! Thanks again!

    PS: To all the owners from the Philippines with the same model (Grand Prime Duos SM-G530H – duos), I can confirm it works. My baseband is G530HXXU2BOH. I used the Russian update above. =)

    Hi there. I tried it and it worked! only that after full installation, I could not set-up the phone. I am stucked in the set-up stage where I have to agree to Samsung’s agreement. Clicking “next” takes me back to previous agreement step, over and over again. Please what do I do?

  • Yes, you can. Just make sure that your phone is not sim-locked to a network operator.

  • Fahad Abid Kalim

    worked like a charm. Had initial difficulty to connect to Odin. But after rebooting in download mode attach mobile to computer via USB and wait for windows to install the drivers for your mobile. after drivers have been install then open Odin and again attach your mobile to computer. and Odin will recognize!! 🙂

  • Ge Lo

    ohh! it says its added….now, my Baseband version is HXCU….which firmware should i download?

  • Close Kies, put device in download mode, open ODIN, connect device

  • Ge Lo

    this is how it looks like when i connect my phone to my pc with Kies 3

  • Ge Lo

    i already downloaded Kies 3 and it is able to detect my phone. What’s next?

  • Pramod Rimal

    every time when download reach in 700mb then its cancel why… i cant resume my download?

  • Most likely because u dont have any, or the correct drivers. Best way to get the right drivers is downloading Kies 3 first.

  • Ge Lo

    hi, my phone cant be detected by Odin… why? i tried both versions on your tutorial and it didnt detect at all.

  • arief rachman

    bagai mana caranya rekesh

  • I am not sure, but I won’t recommend installing a different firmware other that the one meant for your model. If you still want to try, do it.

  • Yes.

  • No. You’ll have to wait.

  • From what I’ve read, the SM-G530AZ and the SM-G530H are almost identical when it comes to firmware. Has anyone attempted this on the AZ?

  • Malix Asad

  • Try a different cable and USB port and Odin version.

  • If your phone is not locked to a network operator, you can install it.

  • Yes, you can.

  • Yes.

  • Not available yet.

  • Vinesh Unni

    I’m currently running 4.4.4 and it’s rooted. Should I unroot it to install this firmware(5.0.2)?

  • Jason D Cruise

    I have already installed it, but the battery life seems worse than KK, isn’t it?

  • Roadrunner11

    Absolutely NOT, you can’t downgrade to KK from Lollipop, the update also updates the bootloader and if you try to flash a KK image with Odin it will give you an error.

  • Hassan Sardar

    Can I Downgrade My Android Version Back To 4.4.4 Nd Which Firmware I’ll Have To Download? By Country Or Same As Russia?

  • Alexis Olveres

    I downloaded version 5.0 of Russia, to return to version 4.4 should I download version of Russia?

  • Yes, you can root it again. We have already been working on a tutorial and it will be live within a few hours.

  • wyatt

    My device is currently rooted with a custom recovery (philz cwm). Will i have to re-root my phone after installing this firmware? And if so, do u know where i can find an odin flashable file to root once the firmware is installed? Or would it be the same file that i originally used to root the phone?
