Thank you very much for providing support to the Galaxy A5. Installed with Flashify, tested on my A500M single SIM and running smoothly.
I tried other versions of TWRP 3.0.2 and always bootloop in the recovery. A greeting.
 
Should I get the "-0" or the "-1" file? Ex.: "3.0.2-0". Btw, I have already twrp installed I think 3.0.1-1 if not wrong but I want to update the twrp version through windows, will it wipe my data of just update the bootloader?

the -# is not a twrp sources update, it's just a "release counter" of my builds, for example if i upload a new twrp build, i name it from *-0 to *-1
Also you don't need windows to update. you can go in twrp and advanced->terminal then run these commands:
$ tar xvf path/to/recovery.tar
$ dd if=/path/to/extracted/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
and then reboot

It works on my SM-A500F. You finally fixed the Brightness bug that has been with every version of TWRP for the Galaxy A5 (2015).

Zonik ported the same recovery version (3.1.0-0), however it shows "RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING" every time it boots up. On this port, it only shows when you boot to the recovery. Overall great job! :)

Btw 3.1.1-0 is now officially released. Would be nice if you ported that if you had the time ;)

@DeadSquirrel01 Hi Sir, just use the odin to flash it in ap section? No need to uncheck the option?

2. And also is that you tried to flash the supersu zip for rooting? I need the root on my 6.0 at A500F.

wee, new update is now out.
Changelog:
update twrp to 3.1.1
Support formatting system/data/cache to f2fs
Note that not all roms support f2fs, so, before using it ask to your rom's developer.
Also, that option will wipe the entire partition. So, if you choose to convert userdata partition to f2fs, it will also delete everything in /data/media/0 (/sdcard) which is not deleted in normal /data wipes.

The link to download it is the same, just choose the 3.1.1 one
