About this app

FlashFire is the most advanced on-device firmware flasher available for rooted Android devices. It can flash full firmware packages from various manufacturers, as well as apply over-the-air (OTA) and ZIP updates - all while maintaining root, and without using a custom recovery. It also offers full device backup and restore functionalities in several formats. Relevant files can be stored on internal storage, SD cards, USB connected storage, or can even be streamed directly to and from your computer using USB or Wi-Fi.

FlashFire is the spiritual successor to the Mobile ODIN app, which was a similar solution (using completely different methods under the hood) exclusively for Samsung devices on older Android versions.

FlashFire is an extremely powerful application, it should be used with caution. Data loss, soft-bricks, and even hard-bricks are possible if used incorrectly. Unless you are an expert user, consult FlashFire's website and the XDA discussion thread before doing anything potentially destructive.

Note: currently all functionality is unlocked without purchasing Pro. This may change in the future!

Brilliant app, have been using it for years. As of 2018, app is discontinued and force closes when it detects you have not purchased a Pro version. Now, the only sensible way to buy Pro is to move the device's clock back to 2017 before running the app, then reverting to correct time for purchase authentication (otherwise device won't connect). I'd happily give 5 stars for the app, but the idea of force closing with no information for the user definitely warrants a strike. Hence, four stars.

Went back to my old phone to try to reconfigure it after many years and now ... app just force closes. My recollection is that I had mobile odin therefore flash fire was unlocked to pro but that is all long ago. Very poor just to force close especially as the app is no longer developed or anything! However, when I used it years ago and it worked, I thought it was really good.....

Wonderful app that works if you know what to do to. Requires an older ish device with supersu or an older version of magisk. It'd be amazing if it got an update to be compatible with current root options but magisk gets updated a lot so im not gonna hold out hope. Thanks for this app honestly.
