There are zero stock based flashable ROMs for Galaxy A5 so here goes one (or three actually)
Its based on BOL1 for A5FU (2.12.2015) and BOK2 for A5F (19.11.2015) and BOK3 for A5H (19.11.2015), the unbranded versions of Samsung ROM.

NOTE: ONLY /FU VARIANT IS SUPPORTED. (I've only got this device)
PLEASE DON'T REQUEST HELP FROM /F /H VARIANTS. THEY WILL WORK IF YOU ONLY GET THEM PAST INSTALLATION VIA TWRP.

This rom is:
  • De-odexed
  • De-bloated
    • Mostly Google apps
    • Turn off rest of the apps you see fit
  • De-Knox'd
  • Zipaligned
  • Rooted
  • Busybox'd

It also features:
  • Note Edge launcher
  • Note 5 apps:
    • Note5 Clock package
    • Note5 Weather widget
    • Note5 Wallpaper chooser
    • Note5 My file
    • Note5 Calculator
    • Note5 Gallery
    • Note5 Voice Recorder
  • S6 Apps:
    • S6 Keyboard
    • S6 Fonts
    • S6 Memo
    • S6 Radio
    • S6 Video
    • S6 Setup wizard
    • S6 Galaxy App
    • S6 Galaxy App Widget
    • S6 Smart Manager
    • S6 S Planner
    • S6 S Music
    • S6 UI Sounds


I just piled up this ROM from bits. All the credit goes to these guys:
Disclaimer:
This works for me, so it should work for your device also. Do not hold me responsible if something goes wrong during flashing process. Do this only with your own consent and bear yourself all the risks.

Installation via TWRP:
  1. Please make a backup with TWRP, its easy and saves lots of time in case things go south.
  2. An update to at latest unbranded firmware (official FW via odin/KIES) is recommened before installing this. There has been reports of small annoyances if coming straight from older 5.0.2 base.
  3. Wipe all the data (except SD-card) and flash this ROM. Let it boot for good 10min and you're done.

(The first boot really takes about 10min!)

Hi I tried to flash your ROM V2.1 with TWRP 2.8.7.0, but get a message - 'This package is for "a5ulte" devices; this is "a5". Why? I have A500FU?

So I flashed original ROM with ODIN again, flash TWRP and now it works. Shat it was probably related to my previous ROM set up (rooted).

Now I flashed directly V2.1 and it seems it works, but I am not able to switch WIFI on.

Any suggestion?

which base ROM is V2.1? if different from the stock you flashed it won't work. stock tw ROMs need to match CSC,BL + modem in order to work. I found this out myself. u need the very latest ROM available if V2.1 is based off that.
