OK, to reply to myself
Tried flashing TWRP from recovery (zip) from Odin (tar), no go. Tried flashing latest Phils' - no go. But I successfuly flashed older Phils' (v5.x) and it works OK.
After this success I againg tried latest Phils', but it just reports failed. Will try to update it from recovery (zip), see what happens....
any clues welcome
OK, managed to install latest Phils' but the strange thing is that after installing zip, I did "reboot recovery" and it rebooted to download mode...??? After I turned it off and back on it booted correctly to updated recovery....
Still weird I can't seem to install TWRP....
Which file should I choose i.e. if I'm installing it from Phils'? There are several possibilities
I have standard intl N7100:
? I suppose the 1st one?
