Unofficial release -TWRP recovery for the Galaxy A7 - SM-A710F/FD/Y/M Exynos7580

UPDATE 14/4/2016: TWRP 3.0.2-0 released.
https://twrp.me/site/update/2016/04/...-released.html

TWRP is now v3.0.2-1

SEANDROID warning fix

New feature available in TWRP 3.0.0-0 is system image backup and restore and factory image flashing (see TWRP changelog for details)
Basically this means factory images from the official firmware can now be flashed with TWRP instead of ODIN. I have extended this feature to include BOOT, RECOVERY, SYSTEM, CACHE, HIDDEN and RADIO(MODEM) partitions.
This feature can be found under INSTALL >> INSTALL IMAGE >> select image to flash >> select partition.
NOTE: To flash the modem, first it needs to be renamed to modem.bin.img

F2FS support added.

Internal SUPERSU root option removed. This is to prevent boot loops on 5.11/6.0 devices


You flash this at your own risk. Please ensure you have the stock ROM to hand downloaded from SAMMOBILE in case of problems. This will trip the knox counter.

Instructions:


Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
Uncheck Auto reboot.
Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.
After flashing immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding the other buttons.
You should now see TWRP recovery.

PLEASE DO *NOT* DIRECT LINK TO THESE FILES. PLEASE LINK TO THIS POST


To Root:
Flash the file below with TWRP:
DO NOT LET TWRP ROOT YOUR DEVICE IF IT ASKS. USE ONLY THE FILE BELOW:


https://download.chainfire.eu/969/SuperSU/

DEVICE TREE: soon


NOTE: ON SOME ANDROID 5.1.1 DEVICES IT IS NECESSARY TO GO TO:
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
AND ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.

FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED PLEASE.
THANKS.

Hi Ashyx,

Saw that you posted TWRP for both A510F and A710F, any chance you could compile for the A310F too?
It would be very much appreciated!

Cheers

How is stock recovery going to rescue you from a bootloop?
For that you need a custom recovery like twrp to simply make a backup first.
