If using the dd method (I'm on a mac) how the heck do you install TWRP? The address on the TWRP download page and the TWRP app don't exist in the latest Samsung ROM.

Original thread

I downloaded the tar file and flashed with Odin 3.07

Here is a picture.

Thanks. Do you know how to modify twrp so it identifies as SM-T900? I don't want to modify the updater-script every time I flash (if I can help it).

I've got an SM-T900 running T900UEUANK1_T900XARANK1_XAR I successfully rooted using CF-auto root via odin. I'm trying to install TWRP so I can flash a new ROM. I can not get TWRP to install at all no matter which of the four compatible versions I try weather I use Odin or the TWRP manager app from the play store. I get this with Odin

<ID:0/003> Added!!
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

The TWRP manager just fails to flash TWRP.

Any Ideas?

Switched to Odin 3.09 once I figured out that AP is the same as the old PDA button(WTF?) Anyway I got this now:
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> There is no PIT partition.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

Success at last. Turns out that my USB 3 ports on my PC are jacked. Switched to the front 2.0 ports and it worked in about 10 seconds. I'm in TWRP now. Next step is to flash a custom ROM.

Hexbug, thanks for your Info.
I am an little concerned about this Hint at CF: "UNLOCK BOOTLOADERS - If you have locked bootloaders, flashing one of these will probably brick your device..."
What does this mean?

FYI, for those having issues getting TWRP to work with their Tab Pro 12.2 - here's some news you can use: bigbiff (who's been heading up the TWRP Q&A and Development Forums for the Samsung Tabs has just pushed out TWRP- tar, zip and img files for the Tab Pro 12.2 SM-T900 (v2wifixx).
I downloaded a copy from the TWRP website. I just got a SM-T900 a couple of weeks ago with the NK1 build. Successfully (and painfully) rooted it using - Last night I downloaded the new TWRP- img file, installed using Flashify - made a Nandroid backup - located the backup on my internal SD (about 3.6 GB !!!)- and copied that over to my ExtSD card -- No problems at all with this latest TWRP revision.

HOWEVER, I have not yet installed a different ROM and then tested the RECOVERY mode of this latest TWRP that is WORKING . . .
