Team Win Recovery Project 3.0.2-4



This is for the International SM-G930F/FD/X, Korean SM-G930K/L/S, and Canadian SM-G930W8 Exynos models only! Do not flash on S7 edge or Qualcomm models!

WARNING #1: Flashing a custom recovery to your device will trip the Knox warranty bit on your phone. Check with your mobile provider to see if they will still cover warranty on Knox bit triggered devices. If you understand this risk, continue on.
You generally don't have to worry, as it's incredibly hard to brick a Samsung device, and physical damage warranties should be exempt from Knox triggering.

WARNING #2: The Galaxy S7 stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
SOLUTION:
Follow the full rooting steps below, in order, to allow system modifications without the risk of a boot loop!


WHAT IS TWRP?

Oh come on, you know what it is - don't try to fool me!
In case you're serious, though...

Team Win Recovery Project is a custom recovery for Android devices.
It allows you to back up and restore your data, flash custom ROMs to your device, repair broken file systems, and root your device.

DOWNLOAD

You can find the device page here:
https://twrp.me/samsung/samsunggalaxys7.html

There is a download link there, as well as instructions on how to flash it.

I highly recommend using Odin to flash when possible.
You can find a zip containing Odin as well as Samsung's Mobile drivers here:
https://build.nethunter.com/samsung-tools/

FULL STEPS FOR OBTAINING ROOT

You can follow this video by Max Lee if you'd like: How to Root Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge! [Exynos ONLY]
Otherwise, follow these instructions:

  1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
    Transparent.gif
  2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
    You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.
    Transparent.gif
  3. Extract Odin_3.12.3.zip to your computer.
    Transparent.gif
  4. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
    Transparent.gif
  5. Download a .tar image of TWRP for herolte.
    Transparent.gif
  6. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
    Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.
    Transparent.gif
  7. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot and disable Auto-Reboot, then press [Start].
    Transparent.gif
  8. Hold [Volume Down] + [Home] + [Power] to get out of Download mode and immediately swap [Volume Down] to [Volume Up] (continuing to hold [Home] + [Power]) when the screen blanks.
    If you don't see then TWRP boot splash try again from step 6.
    Transparent.gif
  9. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
    By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow the next step you will be unable to boot!
    If you are going to root your device and follow the rest of these steps, then it is safe to swipe right and enable modifications.
    Transparent.gif
  10. If you want to be rooted with SuperSU:
    Download the latest SuperSU by Chainfire.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the SuperSU zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    You will need an external SDcard for this method, if you don't have one you will have to use adb sideload to install SuperSU.

    If you only want a bootable system partition:
    Download the latest dm-verity and force encryption disabler zip.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the no-verity-opt-encrypt zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    Note: This does not disable the forced encryption on Bxxx firmware, only Axxx firmware due to a change in vold by Samsung.
    Transparent.gif
  11. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].
    Transparent.gif
  12. Wait 2-5 minutes for your device to finish setting itself up.
* MTP, known as Media Transfer Protocol, is the same way you transfer files from your PC to your device when booted into system.

is it possible to upgrade TWRP from Within TWRP or only by ODIN ?
I have installed TWRP 3.3.1.0 and want to upgrade to the newest 3.5.2_9_0
because i want to make a FW upgrade from TeamExyKings (Android8) to Lineage17.1 (Android10) and dont know, if i can do this with the old TWRP or if a should upgrade TWRP first.

Hi, whenever I boot into twrp it says storage is 0 and I have no drives. To install a rom I must always format data and then my storage returns. I can't flash magisk etc after installing a rom because as soon as I boot up it says storage is 0 and there's no system to install upon. Any ideas?

To install ROms I must use my SD card.

    Hey guys :) :highfive:

    Some may know me, some probably not. It's not important who I am BUT I found that our device tree for TWRP builds is damn outdated (based on MM).

    I don't know if you faced this issue already, but some people couldn't mount /data partition in TWRP even though they removed encryption. Why this happens?

    Explanation:
    Samsung added quota support in their oreo update for the /data partition. Means a TWRP update with proper quota support is needed to get this new feature to work. Till now, many developer simply disabled this feature again on their kernels (so they can mount /data without issues on the old TWRP).

    What I did:
    I updated the tree with the latest files, kernels and so on. Including the above mentioned quota support.

    This TWRP version works on stock and supported oreo kernels. Older kernels (which removed quota to fix mounting problems) won't work here. Please advice your kernel developer to update his kernel with the changes :good:

    Download:
    Img file (flash via TWRP)
    tar.md5 file (flash via odin)

    If you have a G930P, G930V, G930R, or G930A (aka the US Snapdragon models) your bootloader is locked. I will not be making TWRP for your device - it simply cannot happen. Sorry.
    Update: G930T users can expect TWRP for their devices as soon as T-Mobile convinces Samsung to unlock the bootloader - I already have a fully complete working build ready.

    You know who you can blame?

    THE DONALD!~~~~~~~~~~~~
    or Obama, I dunno, blaming Obama is getting kind of old guys, sorry.

    3.3.0-1 from ivan's 8.1 sources

    Changelog from 3.3.0-0:
    Remove force quota and fix encryption on aosp

    twrp-3.3.0-1-herolte.img
    twrp-3.3.0-1-herolte.tar

    twrp-3.3.0-1-hero2lte.img
    twrp-3.3.0-1-hero2lte.tar

    The official sources are getting old by now, so ivan rebuilt the herolte and hero2lte device trees.

    I need someone to test 3.0.2-3 for me which should solve the BPH6 and APG8 bootloader issues, and maybe charging while off out of recovery, and possibly a few other bugs.

    Please join #twrp on irc.freenode.net.
