Thank you in advance
Flashing this firmware will Trigger KNOX if it's not already triggered & it might void the warranty.
Here is the direct download link for the stock Odin flash firmware for your phone:
This is a fast download link. It took me less than 20 minutes to download.
When done downloading extract the TAR MD5 file from the zipfile.
Don't worry about the MD5 filename extender, Odin will recognize it as a proper TAR.
Put Your Phone Into Download Mode and flash the rom, once the TAR firmware is successfully
flashed, Odin flash the CF-Autoroot TAR file and the TWRP custom recovery TAR file below.
Remember, before Odin flashing anything un-check the auto-reboot in Odin for best results.
When done flashing, reboot the phone after each odin flash by using the power button only.
Download cf-autoroot and odin flash it, but be sure you uncheck the checkmark in odin which says
"auto reboot" before flashing. (unzip cf-autoroot so you get the TAR file which odin needs)
After flashing cf-autoroot use the power button to power off the phone.
Here is the direct download link for cf-autoroot: (unzip cf-autoroot & extract the TAR file for Odin)
After that's done you need to odin flash TWRP custom recovery.
Here is the direct download link for TWRP custom recovery TAR file.
After you are done flashing TWRP the phone should work properly without any further issues.
I would highly suggest that after your phone is working properly make a nandroid backup of the rom in
TWRP recovery before you change any settings, adding/installing or flashing any mods, themes or apps.
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
