ONLY FOR Qualcomm SM-G9650
Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

This will trip knox to 0x1, your phones warranty will be voided, flash at your own risk. Also, this process will wipe your personal data!

HOW TO INSTALL:
0. Make sure you enabled developer settings by pressing the build number several times and have the OEM unlock enabled. Also make sure you run CROM from the galaxy apps store to unlock the bootloader.
1. Boot into download mode by pressing: bixby, volume down and power
2. Download the latest Odin version, open it
3. Download the recovery file from below and put it into the AP tab
4. Untick "auto reboot" in odin and flash the file
5. After flashing, boot into twrp. Make sure to NOT allow system to be modified till you disable dm-verity! (otherwise your phone will be stuck at bootloop).
6. In order to fully and properly root, you will need to flash my kernel found here and flash Magisk.
7. To disable encryption you need to flash this RMM_patch+forceencrypt_remover.zip for pie or multidisabler.zip and forceencrypt_disabler_q.zip for Android 10 and format data. (can opt out of the forceencrypt_disabler if you want but internal storage will be inaccessable)

You have no idea how much pain and suffering you have saved me. And the fact that you don't even have a device makes it all the more awesome. Thank you!

I saw that and seriously thank you so much!! There will be a Qualcomm section opening soon for Snapdragon variants. I have SM-9600 already in there for TWRP. I need to update it I know. I will get to it this week. I also need to get the devices officially supported and forked over to TEAMWIN that will get done too when I can get the time.

Best regards,

Greetings, this are AWESOME NEWS!!!

I have a Mexican S9+ (From Movistar, SM-G9650) and I already OEM unlocked the phone: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ts78hdnp4j9jffu/1OEMUNLOCK.jpg?dl=0

When I run CROM, I get the following error: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ftrpjn0uj9w9dew/1CROMERROR.jpg?dl=0

I tried disabling my Samsung Account on the device and I still get the same error, what else can I try in order to succesfully flash TWRP?

Keep up this awesome work, travis, you are the best!!! =D

Edit: This is the "Download Mode" status:

SYSTEM STATUS : Official
FRP LOCK : OFF
OEM LOCK : OFF
WARRANTY VOID : 0x0

Edit: I think I have the answer...

I can't find the CROM Service in the Galaxy App Store on my firmware (ZTO, Brazil). Even tho I'm OEM unlocked and I installed the CROM Service apk, I still have that issue, so the main question here is:

On what Galaxy App Store the CROM Service is available to download? I believe that if I install that firmware and download the CROM Service directly from the original Galaxy App Store, the program will succesfully unlock my phone.

Can anyone please help me with that question???

Best regards!

CROM give me an error.
Dev Options > OEM unlock (restarted and factory reseted the phone after that).
Now I need to wait one week?

That is great news. Looking forward to it :)

Is adb still not working in this TWRP version? It does not seem to work for me

I believe your device is already OEM unlocked, the only difference is that when the option pops again, it will show the option as unlocked.

We need a fix for the CROM Service unlocker, I really need to fix this issue. If you find something, please let us know.

Best regards!

I'm in the same boat, OEM Unlocked, but CROM does not work, it just fails. I do not know if we have to wait until we see the "OEM Unlock" in developer's options and them we can run CROM.

If you check my post above, you can confirm that "that" doesn't affect the CROM Service at all: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ts78hdnp4j9jffu/1OEMUNLOCK.jpg?dl=0

As I stated, I believe that the CROM Service only work if you download it directly from the Samsung App Store (and not just install the APK that is posted here).

The CROM Service app is not listed at least in my App Store (As I said, I'm currently using the ZTO firmware), so maaaaaaaybe if we flash another region firmware, it will work! The real question is... what firmware do we install??? CHC??? (Open China).

Please help ussssssssss!!!

So, flashing a chinese firmware will not fix it, right? D=
