Failed for me

Odin seems to work, but boot into recovery fails during "Installing system update" with "no command"

Android recovery shows:

#(fail to open recovery_cause(No such file or directory)#
#Reboot Recovery Cause is [UNKNOWN])#
No Support SINGLE-SKU
File Based OTA
Supported API: 3
E: unknown volume for path [/ odm]
E: unknown volume for path [/ vendor]
E: unknown volume for path [/ odm]
E: unknown volume for path [/ vendor]

#MANUAL MODE v1.0.0#
Sucessfully verified dmverity hash tree

Can still reboot to normal OS, so not broken, but would really like to root and custom recovery.

This upgrade worked however : https://forum.xda-developers.com/ga...nt/guide-root-twrp-recovery-sm-j530f-t3685871

No
If the Warranty Bit is tripped, (if u root) the device displays Knox WARRANTY VOID: 0x01 ....is not reversible
but it is not the problem J530F does not receive android 10/ Q and the room you can write it with odin
