READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY!
1.Your phone warranty will be void after this tutorial!
2.Any small mistake and your phone is bricked/bootlooped!
3.All of your data will be lost so back it up somewhere

(Fixed the tutorial my bad.)

Hey Guys Im Back! Thank you for the support and how it blew up. I have tested this on Android 10 UI 2.0 and it works better then ever!
Also installed lineage os : https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a10/development/rom-lineage-os-a10-a105f-t4078093

So i tried using afaneh92's tutorial which will be linked here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a10/how-to/magisk-root-galaxy-a10-series-t3963822
Which lead to me bootlooping or softbricking and my storage was reduced from 32 gb to 16Gb so i decided to work on my own method!

Credits go to afaneh92 for the Twrp!

BEFORE YOU START YOU SHOULD HAVE
1.Samsung Drivers installed

3.7zip Installed
4.A data transfer cable
5.A Proper working brain
If you have all of those lets start!

B: Download TWRP and 2 other important files
1.Dial *#1234# and it will show the AP and some others, focus on AP paste it on google and get the download for it

Download the twrp file here : https://mega.nz/#!OU1WhSDZ!vQz5K1wpqBhg0hCD59aziaHPxFlUsT_2WG8SgT8p6iY
5.After you got everything open the .tar archive and extract vbmeta.img, boot.img and you should already have recovery.img on your Desktop
6.Grab all the 3 .img files and archive them into a .tar using 7zip, Now continue to step C,

C :Unlocking The Bootloader and Getting Into Download Mode (THE PART WHERE YOU RESET YOUR PHONE)

3.Press start and let it do its thing
4.After your Phone has rebooted you oficially have TWRP installed
5.If you want to know hoe to root go to step E


E: Installing Magisk
Since magisk is counted as the best rooting option rn i will be using it in this tutorial(Sorry supersu fans)
1.Install Magisk Manager
2.Press on Install (first one) then press install again and after that press Install Zip Only
3.Then go into Twrp by doing the steps below
3.1.Turn off your device
3.2.Hold vol up and power button untill you see TWRP logo
4.Press install
4.1.Find magisk-v20.4(20400).zip
4.2Swipe right on the bottom to flash it then press reboot system now.
5.Now you have TWRP,Root and Magisk Congratulations!


What happens if something goes wrong.
1.SV Error Device 1 library 0 - You installed the wrong firmware look for the right firmware.To check go in recovery mode and look at the A105XXXXXX and then look for a download. Remider AP->AP BL->BL CP->CP HOME_CSC->CSC
2.vbmeta.img error - you have the wrong vbmeta.img file. Redownload the original firmware and take out the right vbmeta.img next time you try flashing. Reminder AP->AP BL->BL CP->CP HOME_CSC->CSC
3.A blue screen telling you to use samsung switch emergency update. That wont work so just flash the original firmware and try flashing twrp again.
4.When i try to boot in it gets me into TWRP - Thats just because that your data is corrupted and to fix it while in TWRP mode press wipe then swipe after its done press Reboot To System. That should be a fix
5.My internal storage is just full of weird numbers and I can't download anything on it! Go in TWRP then wipe,press advanced wipe, click on internal storage and data, swipe. That should fix the error
6.Boootlooping or Bricked! Installed corrupted firmware or the recovery was f-ed up. Then install the right firmware and redo the steps!

Press on app? I have nothing in odin saying that, do you mean ap?


Edit: guess not....i'm bricked, stuck on galaxy logo, device not recognized by pc, holoding power button wont force reboot, nothing lol.

Edit2: can force reboot holding volume down and power but instantly stuck on logo again, cannot power off or enter download, nothing...bricked. Followed this guide to the letter. I assumed when you said app in odin you meant ap since there is no app button. My bootloader unlocked then I went to flash in odin the tar i made with patched boot and vbmeta, along with recovery linked. I used matching firmware to what my A10 has also. Would not mind if i could get back into download mode, but that looks impossible now.

Edit3: Managed to get download mode but had to be so quick...hopefully I can reflash stock now.

Im sorry for that and yes i meant AP.
If you wanted to reboot you had to hold vol up vol down and power at the same time and you sure that you unlocked the bootloader and used the right firmware?
Also tell me the AP and from which source have you downloaded it :laugh:

I have a Samsung galaxy sm-a10. I've tried everything here, even combination files. The error I ALWAYS get is 'failed flashing ROM... OEM lock'
Of course I have unlocked OEM in developer options, but still I get this error in the bootloader.
Any ideas?

    The corruption was my side, I was using a download manager, but when I downloaded through chrome it was all good. As I said, schoolboy error on my part for not checking md5. I used sammobile site for the firmware.
