Unofficial TWRP 3.3.0 For J7 2017
Disclaimer
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this recovery before flashing it!
YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Special features:


Downloads:
J730x - Latest Release

Instructions:
Odin
Download Odin v3.13.1
Download and install Samsung Drivers(if you have them installed you can skip this step)
Go to settings/Developer options and enable OEM unlock (If you don't see developer settings, go into Settings/About phone/Software info and tap "Build number" 10 times to show Developer options menu)
Download TWRP_*.tar
Switch off the phone
Use Home+Volume Down+Power to enter Download Mode and connect the device to usb
Open Odin and untick autoreboot in "options" tab. Also make sure that your device is detected
Put TWRP_*.tar.md5 file into AP tab
Click Start
When Odin shows "PASS", take your device in hands, disconnect the usb cable and press simultaneously the "Home" + "Vol. Down" + "Power" buttons until the downoad mode disappears
At the precise moment the screen becomes black, immediately release the "Vol.Down" button and press the "Home" + "Vol. UP" + "Power" buttons during 10 to 15sec to forcefully enter TWRP
If it didn`t worked, redo the steps from #1 more careful this time.

TWRP

Optional - Download and flash no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.0 zip to disable data partition encryption
If for any reason you fail to install TWRP multiple times/different methods, make sure you check this thread

@deadeyesystems I noticed you inquired about this working for the J7 Refine (sm-j737p) (2018). I have already created a guide for our device, complete with all you need to root & plus our own TWRP recovery. If you have any questions, please post there & I will help you out

My friend thank you and all who made this happen. I was full steam ahead on working with/supporting this effort but unfortunately personal things kept me from it. Now I'm back and couldn't be happier you have a solution for us.
My one issue is that my OS version is I believe "PIE" it is: J737PVPU3BSF6. I'm not sure where I can go from here as I as of this point have not found any matching files on various sites. If anyone has any ideas they are always appreciated.

You can grab the stock Pie files here. Just make sure to extract em from their .lz4 format

I saw that. I appreciate that very much. Thanks again for your time. My side enquiry was about me being on J737PVPU3BSF6 Ver:9 PIE. But I believe that it does not matter since phone is exact it will run the version you made no issues.

When update to twrp 3.3.1-1 ?

Omnirom's bootable recovery repo puts its 8.1 and up branches at 3.3.1, not 3.3.1-1. You can always compile it on your own and release your build under a new thread. But as long as you are on 3.2.3 or higher, you will be able to flash pie roms. Android 10 roms should be good to go, idk if you guys have any 10 roms yet.

    This TWRP is Android 8.1 Ready, when J7 officially receives Oreo this will be a direct flash either via .tar in odin or just update .img inside twrp itself.

    This is also built on updated TWRP trees and all that good stuff. enjoy

    sources are here if anyone wants to modify

    **F2FS support is not there**
