Hello,

I have ported TWRP recovery to Samsung Galaxy A5 (SM-A500)

It's currently tested on European FU variant, but should work on other variants too that have Lollipop bootloader.

* How to flash via Odin:
1 ) Boot your device into download mode
2) Start Odin (I recommend 3.10.6), put the recovery package in AP tab - uncheck "auto reboot"
3) Flash (if it gives you error about md5 mismatch, make sure it is properly downloaded and remove the .md5)

NOTE: you can also extract the recovery.img from the package and flash any other way you want, for example, with an app called Flashify

* Download:

What do you mean? I have no problems booting into system from recovery. However, I've had received a report that if you turn off and turn on the phone it will boot into recovery instead of system.
But there are no issue when rebooting.
Give me a step-by-step list of actions you perform, so I can try to reproduce the problem.

NOTE: If you have problems like that, boot into download mode, it will reset the recovery flag and you will be able to boot into system.

To start the system must switch from recovery. At each restart instead to boot the system starts the recovery. (Sorry for my english, but I am Italian).

I guess you need to have stock lollipop flashed as base for this recovery to work
