Download the stock recovery and any TWRP from the internet for your device. Downlaod carliv image kitchen and extract your stock recovery. Copy recovery.img-kernel and “recovery.img-kernel_offset”to any location in your pc. Now take the TWRP for your phone that you download but it's not WORKING. Extract it in the same way using carliv image kitchen. Form this extracted TWRP of your device delete recovery.img-kernel and “recovery.img-kernel_offset” and replace it with the file you copied from your stock recovery in the first step. Then repack this image and flash it. BTW is your bootloader unlocked?

Yes, my bootloader is unlocked (if you mean to ask if i have checked OEM/USB debugging in developer mode), I unlocked it first time i tried to run TWRP.
By "repack this image and FLASH IT", flash it using Odin, right?
My current TWRP is unaccessible

Use md5 firmware extractor


Open carliv.bat batch file.
Copy your device’s stock ROM’s recovery.img and paste it in the “recovery-resources” named folder that is located inside the unzipped folder.
In the Carliv Image Kitchen window, type in R and press enter. Next, type 1 and hit enter again.
Type 1 to unpack the image file that you downloaded earlier.
If you get a message, “Your image is unpacked in recovery folder”, you have successfully unpacked the image file.
Now open the recovery folder in the Carliv unzipped folder. Look around for a folder named “ramdisk” and other files.
Create a new folder somewhere and name it “stock” (you can name it anything you want). Copy and paste all the contents from the “recovery” folder (ramdisk folder and all 10 other files).
Next, delete the recovery.img file that was left behind on the “recovery-resources” folder before.
Also, delete all the contents in “recovery” folder.
Copy and paste the custom recovery image file, the TWRP that you want to port into the “recovery-resources” folder.
You will need to repeat the same steps as before.
never delete the custom recovery image in the “recovery-resources” folder.
Copy the “recovery.img-kernel” and “recovery.img-kernel_offset” from the stock folder and paste it to the TWRP which you extracted in recovery folder in carliv image kitchen . Overwrite it to replace existing files with the same name.
In the Carliv Image Kitchen window, type 2 and hit the enter key.
A message notifying that the image file was repacked will appear. You can view it on the output folder named “output”. This is the brand new TWRP ported image file.
Copy the newly made image file from the “output” folder and paste it to a new folder. Rename it as you want with any name of your choice. Hope it helps. If you are still stuck I'll do it for you

The stock rom i downloaded has multiple .md5 archives. And [AP_A 750...] has inside a recovery.img.lz4 file
Should i download other stock rom? Or use this as .img.lz4

Btw, the tutorial "How To Extract Files From a TAR.MD5 Stock ROM" isn't working anymore. his MyBB forum doesnt work. (MyBB has experienced an internal error and cannot continue.)

Following this guide has booted TWRP on some devices. Please make sure you are on android 10
thx,thx,thx for the support!. I have done the carliv protocol but in the end the new compiled twrp failed in Odon. Maybe the new image converting to ,tar is the culprit? after that i tried to do the method in the video but twarp was 3 seconds visible and then back in bootloop!. i shall DL the magisk 20.3 edition. maybe that makes the difference'I bought this A7 last monday after a HUawei, that has no posibilities whatsoever for twrp or root, but in this Samsung I totally surprised that it, untill now, is so umbeatable, albeit unlocked!

i had done this with z7 myself already, but to no avail, but: i began, in a moment of despair, with Odon to try all the .tars i had collected sofar , to flash and when i flashed PBRP (it was not the first time) it worked!!!. after a week the gizmo do have a recovery, that is not stock! Little new prob: By rebooting system he bootloops (for a change!) in bootloader mode.
