This feature can be found under INSTALL >> INSTALL IMAGE >> select image to flash >> select partition.




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


Instructions:


Flash with ODIN 3.12.7 in the AP slot.
Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
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 + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding POWER + HOME.
You should now see TWRP recovery.
NOTE: FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE STEPS ABOVE IMPLICITLY WILL RESULT IN STOCK RECOVERY REPLACING TWRP AT FIRST BOOT.

NOTE2: THIS DEVICE USES DM-VERITY, ANY CHANGES TO THE SYSTEM PARTITION COULD CAUSE THE DEVICE TO BOOTLOOP. IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO FLASH THE BOOT IMAGE PATCH BELOW.

NOTE: ON 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_3.1.1-1_sm-g615f_26817


To Root:
Flash the latest SuperSU release with TWRP:

I Tested the recovery on my J7 Max and it's working perfectly after flashing the "Boot image patch : no-verity-no-encrypt_ashyx".
one thing i want to tell that the recovery bootlooped(Rebooting the system or Shutting down and again powering on boots into Twrp) the first time i booted it but after flashing Magisk 14.0 and the "no-verity-no-encrypt" patch it works fine.
I've attached the recovery and kernel logs.
Also add a Warning for users to backup their data as i lost all my data after flashing (

and

Thank you for building a TWRP for my device
If you have free time can you please try to build LineageOS for J7 Max

Yes when I have the opportunity, but be aware twrp device trees are no good for building LineageOS or other custom OS systems.
