Installation Step:

From stock rom
  1. Download Odin v3.13.1 (Recommend 3B path version)
  2. Download and install Samsung Drivers (if you have them installed you can skip this step)
  3. Go to settings/Developer options and enable OEM unlock (If you don't see developer settings, go into Settings/About phone/Software info and tap "Build number" 10 times to show Developer options menu)
  4. Download TWRP_*.tar
  5. Switch off the phone
  6. Use Bixby Key+Volume Down+Power to enter Download Mode and connect the device to usb
  7. Open Odin and untick autoreboot in "options" tab. Also make sure that your device is detected
  8. Put TWRP_*.tar.md5 file into AP tab
  9. Click Start
  10. When Odin shows "PASS", take your device in hands, disconnect the usb cable and press simultaneously the "Bixby key" + "Vol. Down" + "Power" buttons until the downoad mode disappears
  11. At the precise moment the screen becomes black, immediately release the "Vol.Down" button and press the "Bixby key" + "Vol. UP" + "Power" buttons during 10 to 15sec to forcefully enter TWRP
  12. If it didn`t worked, redo the steps from #1 more careful this time.

Failed on SM-N9500 TGY Hong Kong latest stock ROM

Failed on the latest stock ROM SM-N9500 TGY Hong Kong N9500ZHS5DSI1.

TWRP installed via odin v3.13 with success but it failed to boot up. The boot screen showed "custom" and a symbolic lock on it. It kept rebooting.

Appreciate your help.

Try to change the Bootloader to the Chinese version one, i.e., flash Stock ROM (TGY) but use Chinese N9500 BL, it should work that way.

That didn't work either.

The CHC loader N9500ZCS5DSJ3_N9500CHC5DSJ3_CHC was flashed together the rest of TGY as suggested. It kept rebooting and failed to boot up. The download screen showed "Qualcom Secureboot: ENABLE". The others were all OFF. Any idea?

Appreciate very much your help ...

Try to use BL from earlier versions and see how it goes...

Hello, does anyone know whether Stock SJ3 can be rooted or the BL is locked?

Will definitely give it a try. BTW, the OEM unlock went missing. Any way to get it back? What particularly version of BL you would suggest?

Many thanks again ...
