FAQ
Q: Can i use this recovery with other firmware then mentioned in compatibility?
A: Only with same Android version and only if you don't plan to boot rooted with TWRP (some kernels deliver root prebuilt in kernel), or Rollback protection will kick in and you won't be able to pass the lockscreen.

Q: Where do i get vbmeta.img?
A: From here, download the one you need according to install instructions.

Q: TWRP can't mount data partition, what to do?
A: Make sure you formatted data partition.

Q: Phone is not booting even after 20 minutes
A: Try to reboot. If still not booting, make sure you flashed multidisabler zip / formatted data partition.

Q: How to format data partition?
A:

Q: Phone is showing only Samsung logo
A: Try to reboot. If still not booting, consider installing an older TWRP build or a more recent firmware. If you still don't succeed, post here some details about your device and previous firmware and we might be able to help.

Q: Why do i need to format data partition?
A: Because old firmware encrypted your data partition and new rom can't decrypt and use that content / root needs access to data partition to place misc files / phone not booting after flashing root until data partition gets formatted.

This isn't a ROM, this is a custom recovery / TWRP

And yes, It is possible that you lose access to banking apps with root

Hi everyone, after flashing the twrp twrp-3.5.0_9-2-d2s.img.tar, I entered Twrp and it works very well, I rebooted and then tried in various ways to re-enter Twrp, both from off with vol Up key + power key and both restarting by holding down the vol Up keys + power key but I can't get back into Twrp. Only by going first into download mode and then from there by pressing vol down + power button immediately changing to vol Up can I enter Twrp, what should I do to go directly to Twrp? Thank you all.

Is your device on Android 11? Samsung has changed access to recovery on this device. To enter TWRP use this app:


I also think I haven't read where, that having a type c headset connected, and you want to get into recovery with those combinations should work (I haven't tried it, I use that app).

@corsicanu I wanted to restore my DTB and DTBO files so I installed https://github.com/corsicanu/9825-bootloaders_and_modems/releases FUBD-twrp-flashable.zip and since then I got bootloop. Im using DrKetan ROM, I tried reinstalling it dirty with AP BL CP and formated /system before. But it bootloops on bootsplash... What I did ROM? Is clean flashing the only way to recover?

Edit:
Nevermind I got it booting again with another kernel. I hope I don't messed up something in the system.
