    Why TWRP ? Why not some rooted firmware which keeps warranty safe ?
    TWRP is a custom recovery. It has many more functionality than stock recovery! if something goes wrong while flashing something you can always make a backup use this recovery which can be restored when things get messed. if mess is of large extend you can always flash stock firmware.

    Instructions
    Follow the instructions carefully.


    Step 1 :

    • Install Samsung Drivers and connect your device to PC. let it install drivers and if its updating let it update. your device drivers should be perfectly installed without a single failure.
    • Link to Samsung Drivers

    Step 2 :

    • Download Odin 3 you can use 3.07 or 3.09
    • You can download Odin from here
    • Download the TWRP Recovery

    Step 3:

    • Turn of your device and go to odin mode [ Vol down + power + home button (all at the same time) ] release it when you see Galaxy E5 Logo
    • Press vol up to confirm

    Step 4:

    • Now that you are in Odin Mode connect your device via USB cable.
    • Now open Odin3 3.09 or 3.07 that you have downloaded.
    • If there is a pop-up like Installing ADB drivers let it get finished it usually updates.
    • Make sure the COM : xx (xx is usb port number it can be any number so dont worry about it,just verify COM is lit up)
    • Now select AP and browse to where you have .tar file and select it
    • Make Sure only Default Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time is ticked and nothing.verify twice only these 2 are ticked.
      Untick Auto Reboot if you are installing recovery for first time!
    • Click Start and wait for the process to end. DO NOT Interrupt during this time.
    • Once it says PASS. BOOT INTO RECOVERY USING VOL UP + HOME + POWER BUTTON.
