Although the actual process of flashing the Galaxy A8s itself is not difficult, my friend who wants to try it must be more thorough because if one chooses the firmware it can be that your cellphone cannot be turned on again, or commonly referred to as bootloop.

For this reason, you have to be careful in choosing the firmware, pay attention to the type of cellphone owned by your friend and adjust the firmware to be downloaded to flash. And if you try a custom ROM, then consider first the comments of people in the forum who have tried it, whether the comments are positive or even negative.

Before you do flashing the Samsung Galaxy A8s, it is better to prepare the following materials for download

  • Extract Odin file that you have downloaded if you haven’t and open Odin by right clicking, then select “Run Administrator”.
  • After Odin opens, wait a while until Odin recognizes your Samsung Galaxy A8s phone. Look at the left side of Odin, if there is the word “Added” it means that your phone has been read correctly.
  • But if there is no, then most likely Samsung drivers are not installed properly or worse, you forgot to install it.

    • If you are still confused, pay attention to the following picture, you must understand immediately.
  • Make sure the re-partition is not checked.
  • After that click Start to start the flash ROM process into the Samsung Galaxy A8s.
  • Wait a minute, if everything works then there will be a message “PASS” on Odin and if it fails there is a “Failed” message. If my friend fails, then most likely the downloaded firmware file is corrupt, then try downloading again and repeat the steps as above again.

If when the flash is finished, your Samsung Galaxy A8s phone has bootloop, so try to do a factory reset in recovery mode. The first way is to open recovery mode (turn off the phone and press and hold the Home + Power + Volume button up).

Then after entering recovery mode, select Wipe Data / Factory Reset. Then restart your cellphone and wait.


An additional magnitude, for now the flash process can only be done with a PC, to flash a version without a PC alias via / via sd card and TWRP, this is still not possible.

That’s the way to flashing the latest Samsung Galaxy A8s and it’s easy to do even for friends who don’t have experience in flash though. And if you have finished the flash, you can try to root Galaxy A8s. See you in my next article.
