I am having trouble installing twrp and root j730g and I am using the latest software version. Can you help me to install twrp and rootUnofficial TWRP 3.3.0 For J7 2017
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.
J730x - Latest Release
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)
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
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.
Download TWRP_*.img, push it into phone storage, choose install image in your current recovery, navigate to downloaded *.img file, select it, select to flash as recovery.
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

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.
@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
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.
Sorry, where is the download link for *.tar or *.img file?
When update to twrp 3.3.1-1 ?
ThanksOmnirom'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.
Guys I have a J7 2017 J730F which was sent for service which lasted 3 whole months , no gmail password is remembered so I cant get through the setup menu. Cant flash 8.0 Rom via odin of course and cant flash TWRP cuase it says " Only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed (RECOVERY)"
what can I do? Thanks[/QU
Got this problem too(
- built from Pie kernel source - built in full 64bit mode - updated TWRP source to 3.3 - Full F2FS Support - fully compatible with all Oreo roms
