  1. Hello. I have a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (SM-G530T) and was looking for root. As I have used Odin in the past to root my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, I am very familiar with Odin and how it works. I did everything you suggested and now I have a brick (keep in mind, I have rooted dozens of phones in the past few years and I DO know what I am doing). I am not very happy, the drivers did not work and have resulted in a brick.

  2. Hello!
    will this also work on SM-G530a (Walmart variant)? Also, where would i find the stock firmware? any help is appreciated!
