Unofficial release -TWRP recovery for the Galaxy A3 SM-A320F/FL/Y, Exynos7870



Update 11/9/2017
TWRP 3.1.1-1 MM build released.

Current status: BETA

Features:

MTP
ADB
SEANDROID warning fix
TWRP and Kernel built from latest source
Factory Image flashing(see below)
NTFS support
F2FS support >> To be added
TWRP Official APP support

New feature available in TWRP v3 is system image backup and restore and factory image flashing (see TWRP changelog for details)
Basically this means factory images from the official firmware can now be flashed with TWRP instead of ODIN. I have extended this feature to include BOOT, RECOVERY, SYSTEM, CACHE, HIDDEN and RADIO(MODEM) partitions.
This feature can be found under INSTALL >> INSTALL IMAGE >> select image to flash >> select partition.
NOTE: To flash the modem, first it needs to be renamed to modem.bin.img




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 3.10.7 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: ON SOME ANDROID 5.1.1/6.0 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-a320f_11917


To Root:
Flash the latest SuperSU release with TWRP:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...2-05-t2868133/

To disable forced encryption and mount internal storage:
(Note this MUST be flashed after SuperSU if you intend to root)

1. Boot to Twrp
2. Format Data partition using FORMAT DATA button under Wipe options.
(Note: This will wipe the internal storage)
3. Check DATA is mountable.
4. Install SuperSU (if root is required)
5. Install boot image patch below.
6. Reboot

Boot image patch

If anyone has successfully installed this, I'd appreciate if they could post the recovery.log so I can look it over.
Log can be pulled in twrp under ADVANCED/SAVE RECOVERY LOG or on a rooted device go to cache/recovery/last_log

Thanks.

I'd love to test this, but first I have to figure out why flashfire isn't working for me.
It only restarts after 20 seconds or so of white text and black background scrolling down, but no backups are written, only a log.

It's already confirmed working I just need someone to post the recovery.log.
40 downloads since posting but no-one willing.

Hello, thank you very much, it worked for me. It was important so I can make a backup of the system. How can I post the recovery log? If you give me the procedure I'll do it.

Thanks, you're the only one to have made the effort!
You can save the recovery log from TWRP if you go to ADVANCED> SAVE RECOVERY LOG or you can boot to android and go to cache>recovery>last_log.
Please don't post the output here, post as a file or save the output on pastebin.com.

Thanks.
