THANK YOU
McFy, amazing contribution!

i got a new a3 (2017 sm-a320f) and wanted to flash twrp. since there is [no official release][1], i came across your unofficial release, which is the most up to date i could find.
i am on a macos box, still trying to figure out what is the safest and easiest way to flash the bootloader ([odin is only compatible with windows][2]) and whether i should unlock the bootloader... but once i do, i am definitely going to give your build a try and report back.

searching the net i couldn't find how one contributes his code to the twrp upstream. could you please share any details you have on it as i would be happy to see your code changes being pushed to the twrp upstream for others to enjoy it.

I would at your place look at jodin3 for mac, after having installed it, it will be the same than for the windows users, tick AP box select twrp and hit flash, think to disable OEM on developper settings

thank you for the reply!
from what i understood, jodin3 has issues flashing "large" files and no one provided any quantification to what is "large" so i thought i better use [heimdall][1].
if you worked with jodin3 and you were able to flash twrp, i will head and do that.

@McFy, could you please relate to my question on how can we merge your code changes into twrp code base?

Maybe, but twrp is not a large file, large file would be a rom, what do you mean by merging my change to twrp code base ?, I didn't edited source code twrp, just build it for a3 2017

For me Odin gets stuck at: NAND Write Start!!

Complete log:

<ID:0/006> Added!!
<ID:0/006> Odin engine v(ID:3.1101)..
<ID:0/006> File analysis..
<ID:0/006> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/006> Initialzation..
<ID:0/006> Get PIT for mapping..

<ID:0/006> SingleDownload.
<ID:0/006> recovery_a3y17lte-050318.img
<ID:0/006> NAND Write Start!!

When I use my existing TWRP, it doesn't see the image file (.img and .tar, both do not work). What am I doing wrong?

UPDATE:
Oh my bad, I found out in TWRP I have to press "Install image" to actually see the image file.

And you have to flash the .tar file in Odin. It seems you tried the .img file.

in case something goes wrong, i wanted to be able to flash stock recovery.
the stock firmware (rom) that i have in hand, does not contain a recovery image, at least that is what it seems to a samsung device newbie like me. these the files that i do have within the firmware archive:

Code:
AP_A320FXXU2BQI3_CL11883096_QB15086315_REV00_user_low_ship_meta.tar.md5
BL_A320FXXU2BQI3_CL11883096_QB15086315_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
CP_A320FXXU2BQG4_CL589129_QB6977370_SIGNED.tar.md5
CSC_OJV_A320FOJV2BQI3_CL12328718_QB15071626_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
HOME_CSC_OJV_A320FOJV2BQI3_CL12328718_QB15071626_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
so if there is no way to only flash the stock recovery, i am afraid of bricking the phone...

@McFy: i am sure you could shed the light on the matter - what is the best way (if there is such) to flash only the stock recovery?[COLOR="Silver"]
