Team Win Recovery Project 3.4.0


Exynos ONLY.
In NO way it is compatible with Snapdragon variants including but not limited to American(U/A/T/P/V), Chinese(0/8/6), Hong Kong(0), Japanese(SC-*), Canadian(W) variants.


Special Notes:
1. DON'T FORGET TO ENABLE "OEM UNLOCK" (located in Developers options).
2. KNOX will be tripped once you flashed custom binaries to your phone.
(Your warranty may be voided. However this may not affect you if your country forces Samsung to provide hardware warranty regardless of software status.)
3. Samsung Firmware OTA (aka System Updates) will no longer work once you flashed custom binaries.
(You can flash custom ROMs if you want to keep the OS up-to-date.)
4. All apps that use KNOX like Samsung pay, Secure Folder and maybe more will no more work

Is it compatible with super img. partitions? Does it mount /system, /data, etc?

I could only wrong as recovery, in which I had created a tar that did not contain the vbmeta.
It doesn't start for me, German N986B, it gets stuck in the screen.

I didn't got the TWRP to Work so next thing i did was :
OEM Unlock
Unlock Bootloader
Factory Reset (because of unlock bootloader)
Setup Device and install Magisk Manager.
Download Stock FW
Extract Boot.img
Put Boot.img on to phone.
Patch boot.img with magisk manager.
extract output file name it boot.img.
Create TAR file of boot.img (boot.tar)
Flash TAR file with Odin AP slot.

Now Succesfully rooted

Sigh... when we only got the Exynos variants here in Korea, TWRP was only released for Snapdragon. Now that Snapdragon is released in Korea, TWRP is only available for Exy XD
Still, job well done~
