Now n5100 and n5110 is supported. You can get tar files to flash via Odin or use zip files if you want to flash from your existing recovery (CWM, PhilZ or older versions of TWRP)

Wow again. Quickly, I want to say, it's nice to get back to TWRP. Been using Philzs and it does a good job but not as smooth and easy as TWRP. The only rom I can't use this with is CivZ's new 4.4.2. It won't allow me to hit the "next" button when installing the rom. All other roms work perfect. This is donation good. Thank you again.

Thanks for this. Seems It has problems with Aroma installers. The screen orientation specifically. The screen stays in landscape and only allows the top half of the screen to show the aroma installation, while the touch sensitivity is still in portrait. In other words you have to touch the screen as if it were in portrait and kind of guess where the buttons would be while the actual pictures on the screen are in landscape on only the top half of the screen and very stretched looking. Thanks again for your work.

And that's why developers that use Aroma (like @civato) specify using Philz's Touch Recovery, which is a modified CWM, to flash their ROM's and kernels.

Nice observation. That is what I figured as well.. I usually have a flashable version of TWRP and Philz touch at the ready. I do a lot of testing with my tablet, with different roms and how apps work and can be modified with each.

Yea, I do the same thing.

The easiest way I've found to switch recoveries is to keep "recovery.img" versions of each one on the SD card, then move the files you want to flash to the SD card, use Flashify to install the recovery needed if it's not already there, then reboot into recovery with the advanced power menu. It's still a good idea to keep the .zip version of each recovery on the SD card in case you're already in recovery before you discover that you have the wrong version installed. It would be nice to have USB OTG mount available in this version of TWRP recovery since I can't seem to get USB storage working as there appears to be some conflict with ADB.

I tend to do all my backups with TWRP though since it supports compression and restores have been more reliable for me than using CWM. The backup formats are different so it doesn't make sense to use both.

If the Samsung devices supported "fastboot boot recovery.img" like Nexus, HTC and most other brands it wouldn't be necessary to actually flash an alternate recovery since it could just be booted as needed when the tablet is connected to a computer.

Edit: I just discovered that the "fixed" 2.6.3.0 version of TWRP from this post works fine with Aroma. It doesn't have the USB storage option in mounts (explained in this post) but I can't get that to work with this 2.7.1.0 version anyway. I'd love to use this updated version of TWRP but it would be nice if the Aroma support could be included from the 2.6.3.0 version and an OTG mount option (as opposed to USB storage) could be added.

DONATE TO ME
I was wondering if there would be a possibility of getting this recovery in portrait mode. I am wanting to use a Holofied theme that has more options that can utilize TWRP even better but it does not work with landscape layout. I have already tried to take the Grouper TWRP and used its res folder and added that to the n5110 twrp and repacked the recovery.img and flashed but recovery is still in landscape but is displaying a portrait layout which is unusable.

Rom/Theme Series!
