Did ODIN tells "PASS" in green after the twrp flash?
" Once the setting up of Odin is done as per your requirements, click Start and the flashing process will be started. Your device will start automatically after the process is finished, and a “Pass” notification on green background will be shown on the top left corner."
Perhaps not real flashed because some errors (check the text log for succeed 1 / failed 0 - means OK )?

Hi

i'm also getting the stock recovery screen. If you select "load from external storage" then at least i can see the SuperSU zip file to install. But installing that did not root the phone when i do a "root checker" test

I had the same problem with a J320FN. Solved by means of a factory reset before installing TWRP (EDIT: maybe factory reset wasn't the key for a successful flash of TWRP, but unflagging the "Auto reboot" option in Odin should be):

- enabled debug mode and oem unlock from developer settings
- (probably unnecessary) reboot in recovery mode (standard recovery), factory reset + cache clear
- switched off, then booted in download mode (VolDown + Home + Power)
- started ODIN on PC, loaded TWRP with "AP" button, unflagged "Auto reboot" option in Odin
- flashed TWRP
- switched off the device by pressing VolDown + Power for few seconds
- rebooted in recovery mode (VolUp + Home + Power), TWRP started
- flashed SuperSU

Hope this helps
Aldo

Unsure if the F and the FN are the same but I'm using 3.0.2-1 on FN...
Hello, I was wondering if supersu and xposed would still work if i flash stock recovery back?
Root is now systemless and xposed is in the system files.. Most likely you would..

Once you have done the installation of twrp, you can try using POWER,HOME and VOLUP (Instead of VOLDOWN). This could be the problem if you are pressing volume down it still brings you to the stock recovery.

Volume DOWN is for download mode..

I have this problem: link2sd does not work, the system does not allow link2sd to recognize the ext4 partition on start-up, I have to restart a second time.
I execute the guide for the root and the phone is ok.
Where is the problem?
