I saw twrp-3.6.0_9-0-jflte.img being available by now - but when I try to flash it an error occurs "Size of image is larger than target device".

Looking at the size of the images, the previous version really is smaller.

twrp-3.6.0_9-0-jflte.img: 10,03 MB (10518544 B)
twrp-3.5.2_9-1-jflte.img: 9,88 MB (10362896 B)

Ideas?

- Decompile the .img file
- Remove languages that are not useful except English
- Recompile
- The .img file is less than 10MB
- Flash and enjoy

Although this might work, the file provided to download from twrp website remains too big, right?

So this isn't a go-to solution for everyone. I think @ripee should check that in any case, because that error will hit anyone trying to flash the Image as-is.

when booting in TWRP recovery normally it ask for my PIN/Password but since some LOS updates it stopped working, i can enter recovery and do everything.
You need to reset your lock screen/security settings, like if you used PIN and fingerprint, change to e.g. pattern (will save your fingerprints), then back to PIN and tap on PIN needed to boot phone, blue button at the lower right side of the screen. Done.

    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.

    Code:
    * [B][U]Your warranty is now void.[/U][/B]
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or your getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    TWRP for Samsung Galaxy S4 (Qualcomm)



    How to flash TWRP with Odin
    1. If your phone is turned on normally, turn on Advanced reboot in Developer options and select "Download" from the Restart menu. Alternatively, power it off and press the Power, Volume Down, and Home buttons simultaneously. When the blue screen appears, release all 3 buttons and press Volume Up.
    2. In Odin, import the appropriate twrp.tar file for your variant with the "AP" and press the "Start" button.
    3. Pull the battery as soon as your phone vibrates.
    4. You can then boot directly into TWRP by pressing the Power, Volume Up, and Home buttons simultaneously. Release all three buttons as soon as you see the boot screen ("Samsung Galaxy S4").


    How to flash TWRP within a previous version of TWRP

Alternatively, power it off and press the Power, Volume Up, and Home buttons simultaneously. Release all 3 buttons when the boot screen appears ("Samsung Galaxy S4").
    2. In TWRP, tap "Install" then "Install Image".
    3. Navigate in the folder structure to the location of the appropriate twrp.img file for your variant and tap it.
    4. Select the "Recovery" radio button.
    5. Move the slider to the right to flash the TWRP image.
    6. Tap "Reboot System" or, alternatively, tap the back arrow 3 times to return to the main menu, then tap "Reboot" and "Recovery" to reboot into the TWRP image you have just flashed.

    the screen issues from twrp are fixed but changes are not pushed. i guess @ripee will have to cherrypick the new commits (when they are pushed) and rebuild/release again the build
