What is TWRP?
Oh come on, you know what it is - don't try to fool me!
In case you're serious, though...

Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, root your device and more.

Read more about TWRP here: https://twrp.me/about/

How to flash and setup it completely?
- First, make sure your phone isn't RMM Locked.
- Download Odin3 v3.13.1, Samsung USB Drivers, latest TWRP's tar for your variant, latest no-verity-opt-encrypt zip and my RMM Bypass zip.
- Go to Settings App, Developer Options and enable OEM Unlock (If you don't see Developer Setings, go into About phone>Software info and tap "Build number" 10 times to show Developer Options menu).
- Do a backup of all your important data and files in your phone.
- Shutdown the phone. Once it's off, Power it On in Download Mode (Press and hold Power, Vol + and Vol - buttons together)
- Connect your phone in your PC, open Odin3, go in Option section and untick "Auto-reboot". Once that click the "AP" button and select the TWRP tar you downloaded before, then press the "Start" button.
- Once Odin3 finished to flash the recovery (you should see a "PASS" message), force reboot your phone (Press and hold Power and Vol - buttons together) and once the screen is off, press and hold Power and Vol + buttons together to boot in TWRP.
- Once TWRP is booted you first need to decrypt your /data partition. To do so touch Wipe>Format Data and follow the instructions in screen.
- Once it finished go back at the home screen and touch Reboot>Recovery. TWRP should be able to mount your data partition. Now copy the no-verity-opt-encrypt and RMM Bypass zip you downloaded before and flash them (touch Install and select each zip to flash it)
- You're now able to reboot to your OS without re-encrypting /data partition and without RMM Prenormal lock.

TWRP isn't built for a specific OS since it's totally separated from OS, so it works on all of them if there aren't significately changes in bootloader/kernel. Even if it was, mine is compiled with latest Oreo kernel source code and based on omniROM 8.1, so...

I lost mobile network?
Hi all. I have an unlocked A8+. I rooted when I had Nougat. I installed the oreo firmware from Columbia and the phone works great. I like the enhancements. I followed the instructions to install the new twrp. Took a bit but got magisk working and root explorer but had issues with busy box and titanium bkup. No biggie. The issue I had is the when I went to send a text I got an error and then I noticed I had no signal. So I checked and low and behold I had no mobile networks in the connections list. Does anyone have a clue as to why it disappeared? Did I miss something? I tried it 2 times with the same result. And help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. OEM unlock is enabled as well as USB debugging enabled also.
