The Samsung Galaxy Player 5, also known as the Samsung Galaxy S 5.0 WiFi, is a fantastic device for media playback and entertainment. It is said to be Samsung’s Android-armed response to the iPod Touch, which has been ruling the multimedia scene over the years. The device very much resembles the Samsung Galaxy S or T-Mobile’s Samsung Vibrant featuring a larger screen minus the GSM module. The device runs on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.
Just like any other Android device, the Galaxy Player 5 can be customized and reconfigured to your heart’s desire. You can root it, flash custom ROMs on it, install applications to it from the Android Market, as well as apply themes to further personalize your device.
Just like any other Android device, the Galaxy Player 5 is at risk of being bricked, especially when you tinker with it (e.g., flashing custom ROMs). When you brick your device, it becomes dead and useless.
However, thanks to coders at the XDA Developers forum, you can resurrect your dead and bricked Galaxy Player 5 by bringing it back to its original state. Developers have released a full-stock ROM that can do that.
If you’ve bricked your Galaxy Player 5 and want to bring it back from the dead, read on for instructions on how to resurrect it.
Congratulations! You just successfully flashed the full stock ROM on your Samsung Galaxy Player 5. Hopefully, reflashing the stock ROM will resurrect it from the dead and unbrick it.

I like how you show a photo of the YP-G70 Samsung galaxy player 5.0 USA version, and only say galaxy player 5 in the title…
THIS IS VERY MISLEADING.
Part way through you say its only compatible with the YP-G70 8G
Oh but wait, the download is listed ad “YP-G70″
SO WHICH IS IT…???
Get your act straight and fix your post, your flip flopping between two different device models in your post.
Either get it right, or get off the internet…noob
Ok, so I have a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 that I could not get into. I followed your directions to the letter, all seemed to go well until step 12. Tried to restart, but now has absolutely no response to the power button. Will not come on, no flashing lights, nothing. Will not go to download mode, will not go into tech mode, just nothing. Anything to be done at this point or am I the proud owner of the worlds most advanced paperweight?
paper weight indeed = Hard Bricked! sorry that this happened to you. Always read the reviews of these posts before trusting them
Followed your instruction to the letters, pass and successful and then the device was dead, no rebooting.turned off the computer and tried to press the power button. Nothing whatsoever.
Trying to get to the download mode again and failed. Glad that I didn’t get it new.
thanx for the useful post.
only issue is that the rom download link is expired
plx check if u can post another link to download the rom
