TWRP 2.8.7.0 for the Samsung Galaxy J5

Hey everyone. I have decided to build TWRP recovery for the Galaxy J5.

First I would love to thank @bhattjunaid for testing this since I don't own this device, @celta1976 For managing to get this working on Locked bootloader models and his Instructions (Instructions In 1st Comment of the post), @serdotlinecho For the instructions how to fix Bootloop into TWRP (Instructions in 1st Comment of the post) and TeamWin for the amazing sources that are still supported.

DISCLAIMER : I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE VOIDING YOUR WARRANTY OR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR DEVICE EVEN THOUGH NOTHING SHOULD GO WRONG IF YOU DO EVERYTHING RIGHT! KNOX WILL BE TRIPPED. ALSO... I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WW3 OR A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK

Ok, Now to the interesting part

Already tested on:

- Galaxy J500F Working
- Galaxy J500H Working
- Galaxy J5008 Working - Instructions in 1st post of this thread! - (Locked bootloader)

- Galaxy J500G Working
- Galaxy J500M Working

It works fine on SM-J500G too. But I have to flash the stock firmware after flashing twrp with odin on my rooted device. My device cannot boot into system, keep booting into twrp every time I reboot from twrp menu. After flashing stock firmware and and re-flash twrp, my device can now boot into system when I choose reboot from twrp menu. Thanks for the twrp tar file.

So if I understand correctly... You restored a old backup but it didn't restore the apps. If that's the case, did it say any errors when you tried to restore
