I confirm. For Samsung Galaxy S5 Dual SIM (G900FD) is going the same way.

When you take a backup first appears black screen with lots of messages. Next, after the second black screen, phone does not get up. The only way to run it is to remove the battery for a moment.

v0.12 has been pushed to Play. It will take a few hours to show up for you. This should fix the issue with the S5 family. It also places a twrp.zip in the backup folder so you can restore (the most important partitions only) from twrp (by 'installing' the zip) in case of emergency (bad flash).

I have a firmware file downloaded from SAMMOBILE called G900FDXXU1BOC1_G900FDOXE1BOC1_SER.zip
Inside zip archive I can see tar.md5 file.

Which option should I use to upgrade my Android from 4.4.2 to 5.0 (with rooting by everroot) using above file?
- It should be "Flash firmware package" or "Flash ZIP or OTA"?

Should I unpack G900FDXXU1BOC1_G900FDOXE1BOC1_SER.zip file before upgrade?

just a small question, do you know whether this will trigger knox as flashing with mobile odin did not trigger knox?

No unpack needed. Use "Flash firmware package".

If Mobile ODIN didn't trip Knox flashing stock firmwares on your device, then neither will FlashFire.

FlashFire is the spiritual successor to Mobile ODIN.

It's long overdue for release, but some i's still need to be dotted and some t's crossed. That being said, most of the functionality actually works well already, and it's pretty darned powerful. I have used it to update various Samsung devices from 4.x to 5.x, done (block-level!) OTAs on Nexus devices, etc.

If you're fairly tech-savvy and/or used to Mobile ODIN I suspect you won't have much trouble getting around with this app. Updates and the manual (which would be bloody useful, wouldn't it?) are coming over the next few days and weeks.

Notes and hints to help you use it:
- No kernels or recoveries are flashed for FlashFire to run, Android is torn down and restarted in a minimalist manner for the flashing part of the app to run. I'm sure this will completely fail on some devices.
- A lot(!) of memory is used, likely the entire operation will fail on low-memory devices. I strongly suggest you make an 'ID' backup as the very first test and see if that works at all.
- Technically it should be compatible with 4.2, but note virtually all of the testing so far has been done on 4.4 and 5.0 firmwares.
- While development has focused so far on Samsung and Nexus compatibility and features, it should be able to function on many devices. Specific support for some other manufacturers is coming via updates soon.
- Individual files need to be named correctly (after their partitions) to be flashable or be contained in archives. Archive-wise, TAR and ZIP are supported. Compression-wise, ZIP, GZIP and BZIP2 are supported. These can be embedded inside each-other, so yes, you can directly flash the standard ZIP-inside-TGZ Nexus firmwares, as well as TAR-inside-ZIP Samsung firmwares. More formats are to come.
- Backups are always to internal storage, and there is no 'enough space available' check yet (yarly!)
- Backups are standard TGZ's for file-based, and plain GZIP'd for raw partitions
- For block-level OTAs, flash a stock system partition or restore a (raw!) system (and vendor) backup before applying the OTA. After the OTA action, create a (raw!) backup of system (and vendor). The latter will be restorable to apply the next OTA.
- The embedded SuperSU version installed by EverRoot is v2.46.

- Pro version is unlocked if you have Mobile ODIN Pro installed, but you still see an upgrade option. This is a (much cheaper) In-App Purchase you can optionally do, so you don't need to keep MOP installed.
- Pro version actually does nothing different at the moment.

If you are reading to start messing around with it, this is how you get the BETA:
- Join the G+ community using the same Google account as you're using for Play on your phone/tablet here: https://plus.google.com/communities/116661625291346007584
- Sign up to receive the BETA versions from Play here: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/eu.chainfire.flash
- Use the link provided after sign-up to download the app

If you have no idea what any of the above means, you might want to wait with playing with this until proper instructions are available, and more people have tested it.
You are awesome. Thanks for your fantastic work.

Quality.

OK so far on Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 KitKat 4.4.2 stock, stock kernel, Knox 0x1.

I got 4 errors reported in data partition during full backup, not sure what they are yet.

Could do with backup to extsd, otherwise useful replacement for MOP, I'll upgrade to FlashFire Pro soon.

Top work again Chainfire, thankyou.

There's a log file in /sdcard/FlashFire which should contain any error output.

Not working flash ota zip with aroma installer 2.7? Thanks

Aroma hasn't been tested yet. I know Aroma is based around framebuffer access though, which may not be available at all in this mode.

Bought it. Now wait for stable release. Pity about my old Mobile Odin Pro though Had it for years.

---------- Post added at 05:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:17 PM ----------

Curiosity got the better of me.

Tried backing up and restoring my ID for my Nexus 6.

Stock ROM
Custom kernel
Unencrypted

No problem encountered.

The bootscreen feels so hackerish! Me like!

Samsung Galaxy S5 DualSIM G900FD: system upgrade to Lollipop with success!

I made the system upgrade from 4.4.2 to 5.0 successfully (G900FDXXU1BOC1_G900FDOXE1BOC1_SER.zip). I used an option "Flash firmware package".

First I created a new archive with protected partitions. Archive was stored in file flasfire_000.tar.md5 with items inside:
- Primary Bootloader,
- Secondary Bootloader,
- Secondary Bootloader AP,
- TrustZon,
- DBI/SDI,
- Modem Firmware,
- Firmware.

After that FlashFire upgraded my Android to 5.0 with informations about some errors but I can't find sdcard/FlashFire directory for paste here errors log.
I had to reset phone manually removing the battery, because automatic reset was suspended. Android 5.0 started up. Knox 0x0. I have a root rights.

Thanks @Chainfire!!!

What should I do now with flasfire_000.tar.md5 file? In what way?

    FlashFire is the most advanced on-device firmware flasher available for rooted Android devices. It can flash full firmware packages from various manufacturers, as well as apply over-the-air (OTA) and ZIP updates - all while maintaining root, and without using a custom recovery. It also offers full device backup and restore functionalities in several formats. Relevant files can be stored on internal storage, SD cards, USB connected storage, or can even be streamed directly to and from your computer using USB or Wi-Fi.

    FlashFire is the spiritual successor to the Mobile ODIN app, which was a similar solution (using completely different methods under the hood) exclusively for Samsung devices on older Android versions.

    FlashFire is an extremely powerful application, it should be used with caution. Data loss, soft-bricks, and even hard-bricks are possible if used incorrectly. Unless you are an expert user, consult FlashFire's website and this thread before doing anything potentially destructive.

    If the FlashFire user interface crashes, please attach the logs of the crash to your post. The SysLog app can help.

    If you are experiencing an issue while FlashFire is flashing, please post FlashFire's log file to pastebin, and include the link in your post. The log file can be found at /sdcard/FlashFire/lastlog on your device.

    FlashFire's website/manual can be found at http://flashfire.chainfire.eu/.

    Note: currently all functionality is unlocked without purchasing Pro. This may change in the future!
