[SIZE="4"]
TWRP 3.2.1-0 Released

Dec 9, 2017

TWRP 3.2.1-0 is out now for most currently supported devices.

What's new in 3.2.1-0:

* minui fixes (cryptomilk)
* Better android-8.0 compatibility in ROM trees (Dees_Troy)
* Fix missing library in android-8.0 (nkk71)
* Fix inconsistent SDCard naming (DevUt)
* Default to TWRP restore instead of adb backup restore to fix restore on fresh TWRP boot



Update 02/02/2017
TWRP 3.2.1-1 NN build released.
Current status: Beta


Features:

MTP >> not working
ADB working >> to be confirmed
SEANDROID warning fix
TWRP and Kernel built from latest source
Raw SYSTEM image backup
NTFS support
F2FS support >> To be added
Twrp app support




You flash this at your own risk. Please ensure you have the stock ROM to hand downloaded from SamMobile or updato.com in case of problems. This will trip the knox counter.


Instructions:


Flash with odin in the AP slot.
Put your device in DOWNLOAD MODE. (POWER +VOL DOWN +VOL UP)
Uncheck Auto reboot.
Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.
After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + VOL DOWN
As soon as the screen goes blank change to POWER + VOL UP
You should now see TWRP recovery.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE ABOVE STEPS WILL RESULT IN TWRP BEING REPLACED BY STOCK RECOVERY


NOTE: ON SOME ANDROID 5.1.1/6.0/7.0 DEVICES IT IS NECESSARY TO GO TO:
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
AND ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.


DOWNLOAD:
TWRP_3.2.1-1_sm-a530f_020218


To Root:
Flash the latest SuperSU or Magisk release with TWRP:
SUPERSU - https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...2-05-t2868133/
MAGISK - https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...mless-t3473445

To disable forced encryption and mount internal storage (/DATA):
(Note this MUST be flashed after SuperSU if you intend to root)

1. Boot to Twrp
2. Format Data partition using FORMAT DATA button under Wipe options.
(Note: This will wipe the internal storage)
3. Check DATA is mountable.
4. Install SuperSU (if root is required)
5. Install boot image patch below.
6. Reboot

Boot image patch
no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx
