    Two weeks ago my phone updated to Android 8.1 and Security Patch Oct 2018.
    Needless to say, I hate this and it needs to go away. I've been following tutorials online to attempt to roll back to 7.0 but nothing works.

    Every single time Odin results in a failure. I feel like I tried everything.
    I tried different firmware, different USB ports, different versions of Odin, different Samsung drivers. Nothing works.

    On video tutorials I see that Odin has a green progress bar when you click start.. in addition to text on the top left box and a loading bar on my phone. None of this exists for me.

    What am I doing wrong? Please help me.

    I have a Galaxy J3 Prime.

    Read [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN. It has pictures, so you should be able to follow it.

    (Are you going into Download mode? Are you seeing the COM:<some number> in the box above the text box? Are you loading a ROM file into the AP slot? (Loading 4 files into the 4 slots will work too, but that wipes your phone.)

    You can not downgrade from Oreo to nougat due to newer bootloader versions .This is why Odin is failing when trying to flash firmware. Your stuck with Oreo.
