Samsung Galaxy J5 2015 upgrade to Pie


Since j5nlte, j5ltechn and j5lte are currently on Oreo, it’s probably not a priority to upgrade them to Pie. But I still ask for the upgrade to show at least one person is interested.
I don’t think this phone has one day been supported by LineageOS. So I redirect to unofficial builds :

j5xnlte (don’t know which J5 it is but I still share it)

I’ve never tested it on my j5nlte since I don’t know if the anti-rollback thing could be an issue for my phone.

Its only used for stock roms by some vendors for some devices,like Xiaomi for Redmi Note 5,its safe for custom roms.

Good to ear, thank you !

@Anonyme, Samsung’s Galaxy J5N LTE “j5nlte” SM-J500FN supported by /e/ OS is not subject to the risk of “the anti-rollback thing” because the latest StockROm Android 6.0.1 does not support the bootloader and modem issues of StockROM Android Oero 8.0.0 devices such as the Samsung Galaxy A5 SM-520F.

On a S5 SM-G900F, also last StockROM version Android 6.0.1, I already tried all possible custom ROMs. For example LOS 14.1, 15.0, 16.0, 17.0, but also others. One and the same bootloader/modem version from stockROM 6.0.1 cooperated with all custumROM versions without any problems.

I was the only one asking but I still link to the unofficial build :
