I tried by using the app, but crash when I tap "device model", so I think I will try by flashing, but not today

I flashed TWRP by using ODIN and it works, Thank you very much

Coming from a Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505 (rom was before Knox, yay!)) I guess I'm spoiled for info. I didn't quite expect it to be this sparse. :-/
Only 2 threads concerning rooting and installing recovery on the SM-G870F..

Even though I've been here for almost a decade, I still find it unsettling every time i have to fiddle with the firmware.
And even more so, when Samsung is threatening with all sorts of evil (which btw by law, doesn't ruin my guarantee where I live).

So thanks guys! I'm now rooted (Chainfire -Towelroot doesn't work) and have made a backup with TWRP.
