This application is the best and worthy of supporting the dev. Flash OTA's without loosing root has been easy as pie. Backing Up without the need if a custom recovery even better. So if your rooted then what you waiting for download this app and support the dev.
My PC died and with it went my ADB routine to update. I wasn't sure how serviceable Flashfire would be as a replacement, but I'm glad I tried... It's easier and quicker and doesn't require a PC and I found my new way to update my rooted phones!
Great idea, but did not work for me. Ended up with "no command" after OTA update on my 5X. Maybe I was missing something. Anyway, I will stick to flashing over USB; it may be more manual work, but it is guaranteed to work.
After several failed attempts to root with Odin pack SM-T325-4.4.2, loaded CF Root and FlashFire directly into the pad. Rest was pinuts as FlashFire did the job. Rooting achieved w/o PC. THANKS PS, how update my Odin pro to Flash fire pro?
This is an amazing app after using it for a while. I get 100% success rates. The people that say there phone is bricked because of this are obviously too stupid to flash anything to there phone and should not be trusted to handle it.
Nice app. It used to work on my phone (MI5)but now it's not, it detects the ota updates but when I click to flash the app crashes, and the app is not able to locate the zip.
