Lineage Recovery is a minimal recovery that works.

Guide:
1. Unlock your bootloader and disable AVB (Guide Thread)
2. Go to download mode
3. Put the TAR archive to AP slot in Odin and click start.
4. Reboot to recovery via recovery key combo.

Magisk (ef9d077c) is included. To flash it, use Apply update - > Choose from root, then go to .builtin folder.

Working:
Standard recovery functions
ADB root shell access and sideload
External SD card access
Userspace fastboot aka "fastbootd" (use Advanced -> Enter fastboot or "reboot fastboot")

Side note: Use flash.jesec.io to sideload. (Sources).

Not working:
Encryption/Decryption (Internal storage NOT accessible)

My english is not good.
My phone is SM-G9810,i did all 4 steps,but when i entered the recovery mode after all steps,it was still samsung official recovery mode,not Lineage Recovery mode.
I am sure that bootloader is unlock and I also flashed the vbmeta_disabled.tar file(but i didn't know whether this step worked or not,when I finished flashing the tar file,my device rebooted into RECOVERY mode automatically but it didn't prompt "You have to reset your device to factory settings" this tip,i did reset to facotory settings manually)
please help me,thanks!
I also want to know how can I re-enable the Android Verified Boot again,thx!

I read through forum but could not find answer can SM-G988n korea variant with snapdragon be rooted and used with sprint. I believe 5g will not work because it only supports 5g n78 and sprint uses n41. Please can someone tell me if 4g lte will work with sprint looks like a few supporting lte bands are diffrent does that matter will it work?

    Via recovery key combo? tried using Volume Up + Power - phone boots into regular android recovery. SM-G9860. Thanks.
