This is for International SM-G900H Exynos models only!

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.

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.

  • Flashing of sparse images - On select devices you will be able to flash some parts of factory images via the TWRP GUI (by HashBang173)

Ohh Sorry mate I will look into this,
Is there you get flashing error or flashed succesfully but still you are on old recovery?

When i flashed, it'd say something like Successfully flashed TWRP 3.0.0 and then end the installation but still remain on TWRP 3.0.0.0, it wasn't that big a deal since Odin works wonders, thanks for the update! :D

Is this problem you get after this recovery flash or you trying to root first time?
I had twrp by Fevax and rooted. Lost recovery and root after update via kies. Was Planing to flash twrp again, saw your post and flashed your version of twrp. Your version of twrp flashed successfully but unable to root my device. I switched back to TWRP by Fevax and able to root :)
Thanks anyway

Strange...
Will find the problem but I am thinking that I have not faced this & I think 40 people are downloaded & no one is reporting other than you so waiting if any other report.
