Question [GT-I9505] How to restore stock ROM and recovery when having TWRP?

Hello everybody,

I got a question from someone who wants to go back to the stock Samsung ROM.
But how do i do this as TWRP replaced the stock recovery a.k.a. Odin Download Mode?

Can you simply flash the tar through Odin while being in TWRP?


Thanks!

Just load up ODIN, install through there the stock rom, it will replace twrp with stock recovery as well.

Recovery and download mode are 2 complete different things. Just boot in download mode and flash stock rom.

I actually know that they are two different modes.

The reason i'm asking this question is because most online articles refer to "Home + Vol Down" to access TWRP recovery, and this happened to be "Download Mode" before TWRP was flashed onto the device.

Unfortunately i don't have this person's device, so i can't check if this is the case (i forgot how i entered TWRP, haven't used it much)
