This is a simple method that anyone can use, you don’t have to be an expert to do it and only will require to have a PC and obviously your Samsung phone or tablet device. Furthermore, I have listed the required files down below read them carefully and download the required files for your device.

  2. Go to Samsung Updates, and download the firmware update file for your specific device. Make sure you download the latest firmware available for your device, otherwise you may face issues.
  3. You’ll also need Samsung USB drivers to be installed on your PC. If you’ve already installed Samsung Kies that’s ok otherwise download here.
