TWRP has come to the SM-J727P!

In order to install this, follow these instructions:
  1. Enable OEM Unlock in developer settings
  2. Enter download mode (Press and hold home + volDown + Power when powered off)
  3. Using Odin, click the 'AP' tab and select the twrp-3.3.1-1-j7popltespr.img.tar file you've downloaded.
  4. Flash the TWRP image, then hold home + volUp + Power
  5. Congratulations, you are now booted into TWRP!

Remember, on the stock ROM, dm-verity is enabled. What does this mean? If you swipe to allow system modifications, you must flash something that disables dm-verity (such as magisk or a dm-verity disabler.)
Also, on the stock ROM, you MUST format /data before performing any actions, due to the fact that it is force-encrypted by default.

BUGS:
  • None, as far as I'm aware.

So to be clear, do I have to format the phone before flashing any zip everytime?

Nope! Format data once to get rid of Samsung's encryption, then once you flash something that disables dm-verity and force encryption you'll be good.

So format data before flashing twrp via odin then flash magisk or format after flashing twrp then flash magisk? Also will flashing supersu also disable dm-verity?

EDIT: I figured it out, thanks for bringing TWRP to this device! Now lets see who can bring lineage(preferably oreo) to this phone.
