On booting to recovery using the key combination, my phone got stuck at the TeamWin splash screen and won't go beyond it. Now it just boots to that screen when using the normal key combination as well instead of Android. Anything I did wrong or is there any other issue?

I was using Magisk with stock recovery prior to flashing this. Going to flash the stock ROM again using Odin and try this once again.

Edit: Since all reboot options now lead to the TWRP splash screen, there doesn't seem to be a way to get in to download mode. Most likely seems that I have to let the battery drain out. A word of caution for anyone else trying this out.

have you formatted data? and rebooted directly to bootloader?

when stuck on spash screen means data is encrypted.

I had removed all accounts and formatted data/cache partitions before flashing the TWRP file. However, the first time I missed booting immediately in to recovery and the OS started booting instead. So, I rebooted in to recovery and it is stuck on the TWRP splash screen since then. So, did the half boot in to the OS result in encryption of the data partition once again?

Tried just about everything but still stuck on the splash screen. I don't know when the battery will run out now but do hope that I will be able to get in to download mode once it does so or otherwise I think I got myself a brick.

no needfor battery to drain, just Press volume up + down + power with USB plugged in and when the phone turn off release power and keep pressing up/down buttons. and you'll be directed to download mode

Thanks, that's the combination I was looking out for. I did that combination without the USB connected and used some other combination when the USB was connected. After a fresh ODIN flash, I was able to boot in to TWRP without any issues, so great job with the recovery.

Update 1: After powering off the device, it is now only booting to stock recovery, no sign of TWRP. Selecting the 'Reboot to system' option in stock recovery results in a "cannot load android system" and "data may be corrupt" message. Selecting "factory reset" option in stock recovery booted me to Android.

Update 2: Booted to system after the factory reset and powered off. Now the phone won't go past the Samsung logo with the message "only official binaries are allowed to be flashed"

wipe data again and reboot to bootloader and flash twrp again, once youre in twrp.. mount system... open file manager and go to system/system and rename recovery-from-boot.p to recovery-from-boot.p.bak.
i forget to mention that.

dont forget to flash the decrypter before booting.

I had to first boot in to the OS and check for updates to register the device with the OEM unlock option enabled once again before the "official binaries only" message disappeared. Thereafter things worked out fine as per your instructions and I have permanent TWRP. Will try out Magisk-patched TWRP later and post the results.
