TWRP:

I used ZArchiver to move the file from my "Download" folder to SD card

Opened Mobile ODIN Pro v4.20
Pressed on "Recovery"
Located the file in my external SD-card
After you select your recovery .tar, scroll down and press "Flash firmware"

You have the option of pressing "After flash ..." and selecting "Recovery mode". This will reboot your phone directly to recovery after you flash.

It says you need root c or mobile odin to work. Right now ive got ni access to a windows machine. I was wondering can the app flash twrp and then i could flash a rooted rom. Probably not im just making sure.

Root using TowelRoot. Once you've gained root access, flash TWRP with Mobile ODIN

With TWRP, you will be able to flash ROMs through recovery mode.

Make sure you go with the correct android version when flashing a ROM to avoid any issues.
