Default [Recovery] & [Root]【T210R & T210】 TWRP 2.7.1.0 [Unofficial]

Updated to TWRP 2.7.1.0.

Now properly supports all set_metadata functions in newer updater-scripts.

Click HERE to download the latest version.

@ketut.kumajaya has provided us with a working zImage which I combined with his previous TWRP attempts to make this recovery.

Please report any bugs here in this thread.

Please take a moment to say thanks and/or donate to @ketut.kumajaya for helping us out.

I have a T210R, so I haven't tested on a T210.

Thank you to everyone who has (and still will) help in testing!!!!


Credits go to:
@ketut.kumajaya for getting this initially working (see THIS post)
@Jamison904 for giving us root
@hkjr for getting ketut to help
and of course the Team Win group
@Tomsgt for the video

Watch THIS VIDEO tutorial for a step by step visual guide for performing the instructions listed below (thanks @Tomsgt for the video).

Instructions for ODIN: (use the one with "tar" in the name)
1. Download ODIN on your computer.
2. Power off the device.
3. Restart in "Download Mode" by holding the "HOME" button, "Volume Down" and "Power" all at the same time (for about 5 seconds).
4. Hit the "Volume Up" to enter download mode.
5. Start the ODIN exe program. Un-check Auto Reboot. See notes about ODIN below.
6. Connect the device via USB to your computer. Verify the device shows as "Added" in the Message box. If it doesn't show then you need the Samsung USB drivers (just install KIES to get them).
7. Select "PDA" then choose the recovery file you want to flash.
8. Hit "START". Wait for Odin to finish (~10-15 seconds). The message area will display "RES OK" when finished.
9. Restart directly to recovery mode before rebooting into OS.(Hold POWER, Volume UP, and the HOME button all at the same time. When you see the Samsung Logo, let go of the POWER button, but keep holding the Volume UP and HOME until you see the recovery screen).

After installation, you may experience slow behavior in recovery if you use the button combination to boot into recovery. Using Quick Boot from the play store or any other software method to boot into recovery will solve this problem.

Internal card gets mounted as "/data/media". You'll have to hit "up a level" on the folder list on the left to find it.

Notes about ODIN
--Make sure that "Re-Partition" is NOT checked.
--Auto Reboot can be un-checked if TWRP doesn't flash correctly on your device. Some have reported that un-checking Auto Reboot fixes this issue. If you un-check Auto Reboot, you will need to reboot the device yourself (refer back to step 10).


Instructions for recovery flashable version:
  1. Boot into your previously installed custom recovery.
  2. Select the Install Zip option.
  3. Find the recovery zip.
  4. Flash.
  5. Reboot recovery.
  6. Enjoy your new recovery.

Flash at own risk!!!!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After you get the custom recovery working, you can flash the attached unviersal root zip by @ketut.kumajaya to get root.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

By no means new to android, have a few rooted devices, know my way around ODIN, ADB etc.

I can't get TWRP flashed onto my T210R. I've followed the process, used ODIN, it seems to work, but when i boot back into recovery, it's still the stock android recovery.

Did anybody else get this working? I've tried flashing twice and both times it did the same thing.

What is your build number?
Are you rooted already?

Try flashing it in Odin with auto reboot NOT checked. Then boot straight into recovery when it is finished flashing.

Not sure if that will help or not, but I read it somewhere.

Looks good...I'll add it to the OP

EDIT: 2.6.1.0 actually gives a lot of "E: A render request has failed" messages, but it looks like everything is still functioning.

Going to pull 2.6.1.0 attachment for now until we fix the theme.

EDIT #2: 2.6.1.0 attachment restored to OP (it was just missing a few png's).
