Applicable to all samsung devices

Install twrp/custom rom/non android rom/

for all variants of samsung devices

A neat flashing guide


  1. A custom recovery-> twrp recovery, download it on computer
  2. A custom rom , download and save it on your phone storage
  3. Samsung odin ,download it on your computer and run the app

*Downloading twrp:

At first find the twrp recovery image file from twrp official site. For this you need to know about Device name of your phone for example device code name of Samsung galaxy grand prime(sm-g530h) is fortuna3g, you can search about your device code name online or if it is hard for you to search then you can simply download the app called Phone info by vndnguyen and and look under device name.

For installing twrp in your device you need to goto and for your particular device download the twrp .tar file for example fortuna3g.img.tar

*Downloading odin

Now download Odin tool from samsung odin officialNow run the odin app on extracting the zip.

*Before the flashing very important

Goto your phone enable developer options by going to settings->about->device and tapping on build number repeatedly until developer option is turned on go back now you see developer options is on. scroll down and enable the usb debugging and unlock the oem if it is also present. After that switch off the device and press vol.down+home+power button at same time until samsung written word is shown and release them and then you will see download mode and then press vol.up key now connect your device using usb to your computer and wait until drivers are automatically installed if your computer doesnt download automatically then you need to download samsung devices driver file online else if its already present then in the odin you will see " Added " written .

*Flashing twrp

now select AP tab and select the twrp.tar file and also see the panel if it says reboot automatically you need to uncheck it and don't play with other tabs.

Now you can start the flash and on a success flash you will see done written now manually goto twrp by pressing vol.up+power+home at same time and finally you see twrp appearing. *Before flashing custom rom

store the custom rom file in your phone's internal or external storage. It is a safe side to do a nandroid backup incase anything goes wrong.Do this by going to backup option in twrp and make a back up in external storage to always be on safe way and after you have backup lets proceed to next.

*Custom os flashing

Now goto wipe in twrp, goto advance wipe and check box for wiping ******system,cache,data,dalvik Only****** now swipe to wipe and after wiping success go back and goto install and select the storage where the zip of the Os is stored and select the zip and swipe right to flash and leave it for the process after the successfull flashing swipe right to reboot to system now it may take about 4/5 min for your system to load. Happy flashing.
