Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Code:
 * Your warranty is now void.
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or your getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* 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.

Supported Models:
Galaxy A51 5G A516U, A516U1, A516W, A516V, A516B, A5160 and A516N

Hi nice to see we finally have a way to unlock the bootloader. I noticed your sources are based on andriod 10. Do you plan on updating it to andriod 11 or should they already work? The A51 5G is currently on 11. I'm interested in testing with compiling roms since I own this device.

Hi, the android 11 bootloader is not unlockable yet, not tested but most likely.
I can update my kernel in twrp but its useless.

Update: It seems that the File Manager is 'Read Only', unless I'm missing something. There was no option to remove the 'Read Only' permissions. I am able to install zip files like normal.

Hi, just wanted to let you know this worked fine for me. I unlocked my bootloader early last year, so I had no issues. I haven't tried everything in it but everything I needed worked.
My phone details:
Model: SM-A516B/DS
Android Version: 11
One UI Version 3.1
Baseband: A516BXXU4CUE3
Security Patch: 1 April 2021
Bootloader Status: Unlocked
Root Method: Magisk
