I’m going to show you How to UnRoot or Flash your Samsung Galaxy J5 to original Samsung ROM.


You will need to Unroot you device if you can’t get official OTA Samsung updates on your phone or you want to return to stock ROM from Samsung. This is an easy process and will take hardly 15 mins to complete

Proceed at your own risk. Rooting/Unrooting/Flashing a device can potentially brick it and make it unusable. Also rooting/flashing will void the warranty of the device. If any untoward event happens, or any of its members will not be held responsible. Proceeding forwards acknowledges that you agree with this.
Make sure to exactly follow the steps mentioned to successfully root your device. Also do check out the video showing the complete tutorial.

Before Getting Started:

  • It is very important to backup your personal data of the device using appropriate tools. If anything untoward happens during the rooting/flashing process, the data will get lost and you can use the backed up data to restore it.
  • Make sure that your device has a minimum of 50% charge left in the battery before proceeding forward with the rooting/flashing process.
  • Deactivate or uninstall antivirus applications on the device.
