Team Win Recovery Project 3.0.2-1



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 S6 edge+ stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
SOLUTION: Flash a root such as SuperSU or phh-superuser. You can also flash [url=https://build.nethunter.com/android-tools/no-verity-opt-encrypt/[/url].



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/samsunggalaxys6edgeplus.html

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

I highly recommend using Odin to flash when possible.
You can find a zip containing Odin as well as a link to Samsung's Mobile drivers page here:
https://idlekernel.com/flash-tools/

FULL STEPS FOR ROOTING YOUR DEVICE
  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.
  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 your device variant.
  6. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] 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 without touching any other options, then press [Start].
  8. Hold [Volume Up] + [Home] buttons near the end of the flash, and keep holding them until you are in recovery.
  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 step 12 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. Only if you want your internal storage or data partition to work in TWRP:
    Go to [Wipe] -> [Format Data] (not advanced wipe) -> type "yes".
    WARNING: This will wipe your internal storage, disable encryption, and factory reset your phone!
  11. Go to [Reboot] -> [Recovery].
  12. If you only want a bootable system partition or readable data in TWRP:
    Download dm-verity and force encryption disabler.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    ** If your internal storage is encrypted, you will need to use adb sideload instead.
  13. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
  14. Wait up to 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.

https://idlekernel.com/twrp/zenlte see 3.0.2-1, should be built soon on official, whenever someone confirms that everything is working ok

this includes:
adb shell
brightness slider
installing zips
formatting partitions (as ext4 and f2fs)
not crashing
backup & restore works for each partition
mtp
vibration
otg storage
whatever else you can think of checking

check on both L and M bootloaders, preferably quote my list with Y(working)/N(not working) in front of issues, and give recovery.log

welcome to xda, don't say you'll do things, just do things, it makes people think that they don't have to do it because someone else will do it eventually, slowing things down for everyone.
