Update 25/12/2018
Beta build released.
Current status - (Tested working)
Treble supported


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.

NOTE: ON 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.



*****INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:*****


Flash with ODIN in the AP slot.

1. Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
(Hold POWER + VOL DOWN + VOL UP)
2. Load the file below into the AP slot, uncheck AUTO-REBOOT and hit start.
twrp_3.2.3-1_a750_251218
3. After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately force reboot to recovery. Do NOT let the device boot to the OS.
You should now see TWRP recovery.
4. Flash the RMM bypass zip
https://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=4481843&d=1524258795

NOTE: FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE STEPS ABOVE IMPLICITLY WILL RESULT IN STOCK RECOVERY REPLACING TWRP AT FIRST BOOT.

5. Reboot to TWRP (Do not boot to the OS yet)




*****OREO ROOT INSTRUCTIONS:*****



NOTE: To mount data it is necessary to first *FORMAT* (not wipe) the /DATA partition using the FORMAT DATA button under the wipe options.
PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING ON INTERNAL STORAGE AND FACTORY RESET THE DEVICE, SO BACK UP ANYTHING YOU WISH TO KEEP.
Continue with the instructions below to prevent the data partition becoming re-encrypted.

1. To root I suggest downloading and installing the latest Magisk as this is a currently supported project, SuperSu is no longer getting active development.
https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445

2. Copy the Magisk zip to a Micro sd card then install with TWRP.

3. Enjoy your rooted device.


DEVICE TREE: soon


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




Credits: Me, Teamwin, @BlackMesa123 for RMM bypass zip.

Please note I don't own this device and spend a lot of my free time bringing these builds for you to use and benefit from.


FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED PLEASE.
THANKS.

Hey. Does it work well? I wanted to install myself. but it seems to me that this is not a complete instruction. Does OEM unlock need to be enabled?

No matter how complete an instruction is, if you don't bother reading it in the first place it's not going to make any difference. :rolleyes:

As clearly posted in the OP:

Tried with the new TWRP.img but I'm having a Bootloop on the Samsung Boot Screen.

Help :)

Take your Time !!
Can you tell me which firmware build number you are running and if possible a screen shot of your device screen while booted to download mode?

Can you try this build, it's built with the kernel from the latest source available - A750FNXXU1ARIC.
Be aware OEM unlock must be enabled and you MUST boot to TWRP immediately after flashing with ODIN. Do not boot to the OS.
In TWRP immediately install Magisk.
Same bootloop at the Samsung screen
However i use heimdall not odin so I have to unpack the tar file and flash the recovery image. i also use it to flash the stock recovery and it works perfectly
Does using it make a difference?
Edit: my phone is A750FNXXU1ARK2
A750FXXU1ARK7 Was my build number

Can you flash the bootloader from A750FNXXU1ARIC and see if it boots twrp?
