Introduction

Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system, functions often unsupported by stock recovery images. It is, therefore, often installed when rooting Android devices, although it isn't dependent on a device being rooted to be installed.


Installation Instructions

If TWRP Already Installed

  • Download recovery.img from below
  • Copy recovery.img to device
  • Install > Install Image > recovery.img to Recovery
  • Reboot > Recovery
  • Enjoy

From PC

  • Download Odin Flashable Tar from bellow
  • Put tablet into Odin Download Mode
  • Flash Blank vbmeta via Userdata
  • Flash Odin Flashable Tar via AP
  • Enjoy

Working
  • ADB
  • MTP
  • Everything, except decryption of internal data (havent tested)

Bugs
(My tablet is already decrypted so haven't tested this, please advise)
  • OS-encrypted storage (Internal Data) not able to be decrypted in TWRP.

Glad it's working well for you. And to be honest, I've tried a few GSI roms and they work well, like crDroid GSI and CAOS GSI... I've been trying to cook up my own port of a few ROMs also to no avail yet but soon...
How do I install the GSI ROMs because I only get Boot Recovery dtbo vbmeta_samsung VBMeta and Super (system vendor odm product)

You have to use a patch called DynaPatch v1.5. It patches TWRP to be able to install individual images to the super dynamic partition... I don't know if I can post a link but if you Google DynaPatch v1.5 you'll be able to find it, just flash via TWRP and then reboot to Recovery and it will show system, vendor, product etc in the install

  1. Enter TWRP recovery
  2. Select Install – select DynaPatch-v1.5.zip, Swipe to confirm Flash
  3. Select Reboot – Recovery or Turn Power off
  4. One time only to flash this patch except you reflash the TWRP recovery


The images attached are to show that it works.. I show a before the patch is installed and then after its installed... make sure you follow the directions above.

I'm having a problem with stock recovery overwriting TWRP. I have the latest stock, BUJ1, installed. I flash vbmeta and recovery with Odin and boot into TWRP. Format data and reboot recovery. Everything works fine. Reboot to system and go through the setup, make sure developer mode still enabled. Again, everything appears to work. Download the DynaPatch and copy it to the T500 SD card. Turn off the tablet and attempt to boot TWRP. It's gone. Back to stock recovery. What am I doing wrong????

Thats my bad, youll want to use the multidisabler to fix that.. I have added it to the twrp.. once twrp is installed go to Advanced > Terminal and then type multidisabler then press enter. This will disable the stock recovery restoration.

What if I don't have TWRP installed yet but the tablet is rooted with Magisk? Is it okay to flash TWRP from within a running system?

Thanks. That worked but I flashed DynaPatch and then lineage-19.0-20211216-UNOFFICIAL-treble_a64_bvS-vndklite.img in super and it bootloops. Any ideas? Of course this was after format of data and factory reset wipe.
