NOTICE: This content was originally posted to Google+, then imported here. Some formatting may be lost, links may be dead, and images may be missing.

I have just uploaded v0.52 of FlashFire to Google Play, and it should be available for updating within a few hours. In the meantime, you can grab the APK directly from my server (see links below).

As usual, the release contains only a small portion of the updates I had wanted to put in there, but time seems to be in ever short supply.

Noteworthy changes

Last release broke support for 64-bit devices running N Preview. This issue should now be corrected.

On some devices OTA updates would fail on the previous version due to the automatically generated wipe action. This issue should now also be corrected.

More devices should now be supported due to fixing a bug in partition detection (seems to affect mostly Motorola)

Fastboot backup now no longer uses 'fill' chunks for raw backups. While this increases the size of the backup of (for example) the system partition, it improves compatibility.

The Preserve recovery option has been moved from the OTA/ZIP action to the reboot action. Backing up the recovery is now the very first thing, and restoring it the very last thing done.

The embedded SuperSU version has been updated to v2.76.


Google Play:






Direct APK download:



  • Add option to delay reboot after flash

  • Fix mixing of 32/64-bit commands on NP4/64-bit

  • Fix re-mounting of lazily unmounted system partition

  • Fix partition detection on some Motorolas

  • Fix cache wipe breaking subsequent OTA on some devices

  • Detect 'full' OTA ZIP, and do not warn about modified /system in that case

  • Move 'preserve recovery' option from OTA/ZIP action to Reboot action

  • ZIPs: Add 'getprop' command emulation if /system not mounted

  • Fastboot: don't use 'fill' chunks

  • Credits listing updated

  • Embedded SuperSU updated to v2.76

Can I update to NDP 5 with this coming from a custom ROM on MM? And keep root?

Leon Wilkes commented on 2016-07-19 at 19:07:

+calle linde I've got a similar question, but I'm rooted, decrypted on dp4, can i use flashfire to move to dp5, yet stay rooted, decrypted and with my data intact, I've got the ota saved on my 6p, but I'm away from my laptop until tmrw, yet in a hurry to try dp5, any thoughts?

Just wanted to say thanks to chainfire, latest flashfire worked perfectly for my 6p i was on dp4, rooted and decryted, just a few mins later courtesy of flashfire i was up and running with dp5, still rooted and decryted and with all my original data and backups, i was so impressed i had to buy the pro version of the app.

Is there a way to root g900v with locked bootloader which is running Android 6.0.1.

Kenneth Schonmann commented on 2016-07-25 at 19:17:

I used flashfire (which is great) to flash pf4 android 6.0.1

The only thing was it had to be unrolled because of locked bootloader

I'm a little apprehensive. Can it be told to do a backup without flashing anything? Can anyone confirm this works with sn AT&T Galaxy S5?

Markus Wolff commented on 2016-07-28 at 14:31:

This would be awesome on an NVidia Shield - whenever an update comes in, I have to keep the remote away from the kids so they can't accidentally trigger the update process, and then I'll have to carve out the time to manually re-root the device again... #firstworldproblems

Frank Lawrence commented on 2016-08-22 at 01:16:

You have to have a clean root. If there are any modifications to the software such as removed apps or tweaked kernel it wont work.

Saurabh Vaidya commented on 2016-08-22 at 03:04:

Please develop CF Auto root for Samsung SM-J210F, it is not available anywhere, in case any compatible CF AUTO ROOT is available, then send one.

Brian Turner commented on 2016-08-25 at 22:22:

Looks good. I'm curious as to whether it would be possible to make this compatible with KingRoot? I needed to use that to root my Remix Ultratablet running RemixOS 2.0 (A tweaked version of Android, intended to be more desktop-like.) If they will work together, what do I need to do to enable that?
