Firmware news

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) is getting updated with Android 8.1 Oreo!

Here it comes, folks, the first Oreo update for an existing device based on Android 8.1. The Galaxy J5 (2017) Oreo update is rolling out in Poland at the moment, with the August 2018 security patch in tow and Android 8.1 as the OS version. This comes a few weeks after Samsung updated the Galaxy J3 (2017) to Android 8.0 Oreo. Coincidentally, today is also the day Samsung unveiled its first Android Go smartphone, which runs Android 8.1 Oreo but is designed to be more efficient on the low-end hardware.

Galaxy J5 (2017) Android 8.1 Oreo update released

The software version for the J5 (2017)’s Oreo update is J530FXXU2BRH5 and the firmware is available from our database for those in Poland interested in immediately making the jump to Android 8.1 Oreo. It may also be available over the air, which you can confirm by tapping the Download updates manually option in the Software update menu of the phone’s Settings app. It remains to be seen when the Galaxy J7 (2017) will start receiving Oreo and also whether it will be updated to version 8.1 or 8.0. Current signs point to Android 8.1, and one can only hope Samsung doesn’t leave the largest of its mainstream 2017 J series phones on an older version of the OS as it did with the 2016 version.

All european firmwares for Galaxy J5 2017 SM-J530F are BIG FAKE.

I flashed on my mobile firmware Croatia VIPnet Android 8.1, and getting Germany Vodafone brand and language, and Slovenian SI.mobil Android 8.1, also getting Germany Vodafone brand and language, why not Croatian or Slovenian on first time after flashed and restart phone? I am very angry! Please give me a answer?!

I was talking to a Samsung live Chat employee about flashing a firmware on my device when he told me not to download firmware from online websites as they might be corrupt or insecure. Should that be a concern?

I think samsung is doing right here: after they released a device with a certain (newer) android version then any device that will be updated to that version will get the latest incremental upgrade. For example, after they released Tab S4 on oreo 8.1 any phone samsung releases will run at least on 8.1 or will be updated to 8.1, not to 8.0 (if that phone already got nougat of course), with of course some exceptions because it’s real life etc. This thing is kinda appreciable i think, even though the devices that already got 8.0 won’t be updated to… Read more »
