If you upgrade the firmware using the firmware that is not from your region, and you get an error message. That means the firmware is not suitable for your Samsung.

At first I upgrade my samsung Indonesia using Firmware Russian region and did not succeed. Next I tried to upgrade using the Firmware India region and succeed!

If the firmware can not be upgraded to your Grand Prime It means, they do not support your device.  I take all the risk to try it, all the impact is its own responsibility

We hope samsung immediately issued an update Android Lollipop to another region Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime.
