TWRP 18.104.22.168 for the Samsung Galaxy J5
Hey everyone. I have decided to build TWRP recovery for the Galaxy J5.
First I would love to thank @bhattjunaid for testing this since I don't own this device, @celta1976 For managing to get this working on Locked bootloader models and his Instructions (Instructions In 1st Comment of the post), @serdotlinecho For the instructions how to fix Bootloop into TWRP (Instructions in 1st Comment of the post) and TeamWin for the amazing sources that are still supported.
DISCLAIMER : I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE VOIDING YOUR WARRANTY OR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR DEVICE EVEN THOUGH NOTHING SHOULD GO WRONG IF YOU DO EVERYTHING RIGHT! KNOX WILL BE TRIPPED. ALSO... I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WW3 OR A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK
Ok, Now to the interesting part
Already tested on:
- Galaxy J500F Working
- Galaxy J500H Working
- Galaxy J5008 Working - Instructions in 1st post of this thread! - (Locked bootloader)
- Galaxy J5007 Not tested yet
- Galaxy J500G Working
- Galaxy J500M Working
- Galaxy J500N0 Not tested yet

Note : This should work on all models. However, just to be sure, if you own a J5 model that has not been tested yet, please post a confirmation below
- Brightness slider
- PC mounting (but adb should work)
- Reboot into recovery mode from/via TWRP not working

Here are some notes before you start :
Make sure you enabled the unlock bootloader option in the developer's settings.
THIS WILL SET KNOX TO 1
