4. Boot into Download Mode (POWER+HOME+VOL DOWN)
5. Press Vol UP at prompt
6. Connect Usb Cable (ensure drivers are installed)
7. Open Odin and select TWRP tar file (IT IS CRITICAL TO UNSELECT AUTO REBOOT IN THE SETTINGS MENU OF OIN!!!)


8. Start the twrp recovery flash
9. WAIT 2 MIN. AFTER FLASH THEN PULL BATTERY, THEN REMOVE USB CABLE (your screen should look like the screenshot below before waiting the 2 mins)

10. HOLD DOWN VOL. UP+ HOME, INSERT BATTERY, THEN PRESS AND ALSO HOLD POWER BUTTON TO BOOT INTO RECOVERY.... DO NOT INTERRUPT THIS PROCESS. ONCE IN RECOVERY WAIT A FULL 45 SECONDS THEN PULL BATTERY.

Now would be a great time to take full backups of your device.....

Q1: ...

use the copy in the .rar linked above, you will need to put it on your SD card... this process is highly dependent on using the exact files that are in the archive
