Team Win Recovery Project 3.0.2-1



This is for the International SM-N930F/X, Duos SM-N930FD, and Korean SM-N930K/L/S Exynos models only! Do not flash on Snapdragon models!

WARNING #1: Flashing a custom recovery to your device will trip the Knox warranty bit on your phone. Check with your mobile provider to see if they will still cover warranty on Knox bit triggered devices. If you understand this risk, continue on.
You generally don't have to worry, as it's incredibly hard to brick a Samsung device, and physical damage warranties should be exempt from Knox triggering.

WARNING #2: The Galaxy Note 7 stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
SOLUTION: Follow the full rooting steps below, in order, to allow system modifications without the risk of a boot loop!

WARNING #3: When using custom kernels on the Note 7, never turn off developer options or OEM unlock. If you do, you will lose all your data and have to flash a full stock firmware restore to use your device again!


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, and root your device.

DOWNLOAD

You can find the device page here:
http://teamw.in/devices/samsunggalaxynote7exynos.html

There is a download link there, as well as instructions on how to flash it.

I highly recommend using Odin 3.12.3+ to flash when possible.
You can find a zip containing Odin as well as Samsung's Mobile drivers here:
https://build.nethunter.com/samsung-tools/

FULL STEPS FOR OBTAINING ROOT

Follow these instructions until someone nice comes along and makes a video from them (without ads):
  1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
  2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
    You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.
    Do not ever turn off Developer Options or OEM unlock. Doing so will cause your device to refuse to boot and require a full factory restore.
  3. Extract Odin_3.12.3.zip to your computer.
  4. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
  5. Download a .tar image of TWRP for gracelte.
  6. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] + [Power] buttons while your device reboots.
    Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.
  7. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot and disable Auto-Reboot, then press [Start].
  8. Hold [Volume Down] + [Home] + [Power] to get out of Download mode and immediately swap to [Volume Up] when the screen blanks.
    If you don't see then TWRP boot splash try again from step 6.
  9. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
    By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow the next step you will be unable to boot!
    If you are going to root your device and follow the rest of these steps, then it is safe to swipe right and enable modifications.
  10. If you want to be rooted with SuperSU:
    Download the latest SuperSU by Chainfire.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the SuperSU zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.

    If you want to be rooted with something else or just want a bootable system:
    Download the latest Samsung Anti-Root Protection Removal zip.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the samsung-antiroot-removal zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    This zip will allow you to flash SuperSU versions earlier than 2.77 and use other rooting methods.
    It uses a hex pattern (by Chainfire) replacement method in the kernel that simply disables the anti-rooting protection.
    It will also disable the status bar notification about unauthorized changes.
    It includes the functions of the no-verity-opt-encrypt zip.
  11. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
  12. Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.
* MTP, known as Media Transfer Protocol, is the same way you transfer files from your PC to your device when booted into system.

For the current note 7 series, @jcadduono will be the primary maintainer. I will subscribe to this thread however, I will be getting the n930fd. Good job @jcadduono!

I am away from PC but will try later tonight or tomorrow. Meanwhile any N930F users face any issue or got bootloop after testing here is stock recovery and kernel based on N930FXXU1BPH6 to fix bootloop

http://devhost.xda-developers.com/cHao

Flash it with Odin for AP tab
I have faced this y'day while modifying CF auto root and experienced that it may fail initially to flash soon after Odin log showing Initializing - Fail
Repeated attempt should work.

Yeah Samsung has so far only released APGK and not FD's BPH6. I don't know if the S7 bootloader changed that happened in BPH6 on G930 also applies to N930FD though, so this might work for N930FD just the same as N930F.

Whats the status on Canada/US models?
I have an N930W8, waiting patiently for root ^.^

Also, I remember having pretty bad wakelock / deep sleep problems with the Note 5 root, has that issue been figured out for Note devices? I remember having to use a modified SU and Dr.Ketans deep sleep fix in order to have my Note 5 sleep properly. Just wondering if this is still a thing or not ^.^

Awesome! If you have the time, join #twrp on irc.freenode.net and upload recovery.log for us from the build. We need to make sure everything is detected and pointed to the right locations, as well as features working.

Here's a checklist if you want to go through it for us as well:
Code:
Blocking checks
[ ] - Correct screen/recovery size
[ ] - Working touchscreen
[ ] - Backup to internal/microSD
[ ] - Restore from internal/microSD
[ ] - Reboot to system
[ ] - ADB & ADB shell
[ ] - Flash zips in Install page
[ ] - Flash boot.img/recovery.img using Flash Image in Install page

Medium checks
[ ] - Flash zip with ADB sideload
[ ] - UI colors (red/blue inversions)
[ ] - Screen goes off (and back on :))
[ ] - EXT4 support (wipe/format/restore to)
[ ] - F2FS support (wipe/format/restore to)
[ ] - exFAT support (wipe/format)
[ ] - NTFS support (wipe/format)
[ ] - System, Data, Internal Storage, microSD card, and Modem/Firmware/EFS (if applicable) partitions listed in mount/backup choices
[ ] - Decrypt encrypted /data
[ ] - Correct date
[ ] - MTP read/write
[ ] - USB Mass Storage read/write
[ ] - Set brightness level

Minor checks
[ ] - Reboot to bootloader
[ ] - Reboot to recovery
[ ] - Power Off
[ ] - Battery level
[ ] - Temperature
[ ] - Encrypted backups
[ ] - Vibration
[ ] - Screenshot
[ ] - Resize data partition
Use pass or fail in each box.

Data encryption/decryption will most certainly not work. :P

They will never receive TWRP support and it's unlikely that they will ever see root either, unless an engineering boot image is leaked similar to what happened with the S7, but being stuck on an old kernel for the rest of your devices life just to root is kind of crappy. Do advise selling it and buying an F or FD Exynos model.

Ok I can confirm - TWRP works
Root - No
Root didn't work may be because of I have updated to latest base PH6 and believe this base have some changes and issue reported on S7 on this base as well
Before this Y'day I have modified CF auto root based on PH6 recovery and sent log to CF as well tested file from CF as well. According to @Chainfire he is aware of this and he will first fix S7 issue and probably this should fix for us as well.
So game started and have to wait till new magic from @Chainfire
Again thank to @jcadduono and @bigbiff for great work. Again Thank you very much to all involved to this project behalf of N7 community.
Here attached logs.
PS : Very busy today and just arrived from out, couldn't resist to test. Will report more details later
Regards
Dr.Ketan
