    Hi Guys,
    So I had my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime SM-G530H problem not recognizing my sd card so i took it to a guy to fix it. He said the problem was at the firmware and hardware issue. He said I can fix it so i gave my phone to him. After a week when i got my phone i saw a new ota update firmware so i tried to download it but when i tap update it says this
    [​IMG]

    When I saw this i gone to the same guy and he said i can`t do anything about it. But you can manually flash a official firmware from sammobile.com. I am totally unfamiliar with flashing firmware.

    Go to Sammobile. Click on firmware, type your model number.
    Power the phone off, hold volume down, home and power at the same time.
    Press volume up to continue, connect the phone.

    Open Odin on your PC. Click on AP or PDA depending on which version of Odin you're using.
    Choose the firmware file you downloaded. Press start....

    Right....... if the Csc doesn't match it will fail. Match the Pda to your build number. Or post your build number here.

    In this case you are going to want U.S. firmware because it's a U.S. phone.

    Did you try following the on-screen advice i.e. "Try downloading software updates using Samsung Kies on your PC"?

    I can't see the Grand Prime listed on Samsung's US website, so I have doubts as to whether it's officially sold in N America. Without knowing what the original CSC was it's difficult to advise on how to recover,

    as i know i got a ota update before everything and i did not update that one but after the fix of my phone it is not letting me to install update

    As far as i seen, there is no OTA update for your device with that CSC. When one is available you could then flash the proper firmware using Odin or Kies.

    When you say "like new state", does it mean the same thing as a BlackBerry means in that it wipes EVERYTHING off the phone? (I know...BB is a dirty word to me... have brand new one with Arabic keyboard that 'coincidentally clouded and remotely locked' after Russian plane attack and before Paris bombing and can't unlock it to save my life nor can/will BB).
