[RECOVERY][UNOFFICIAL] TWRP for Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G (Snapdragon)

Search This thread
But do you know of anyone who has succeeded in flashing , booting and using a Gsi on this phone?
because that is my only reason to even unlock the bootloader.
There are no aosp roms for this phone as you know and like one custom rom for sd8888 variant, so im depending on GSI flashing.
If you put out a guide on how to flash Gsis on this phone, it'd encourage people to unlock the bootloader otherwise, its less worth it for magisk and kernel tweaking

Step 1 flash gsi to system and format data and reboot.

Is there a key combo to boot from stock recovey to download mode after installing the vbmeta_disabled.tar. After wiping data in stock recovey I always end up at setting up the phone.

Thanks

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 Note 20 Ultra N9860, N986N, N986U, N986U1 and N986W.

many many thanks i was just gonna try it,
the reason i wanted to do this is because due to an android update my SM-N986B has green tint and no way to solve this issue and i though installing this TWRP would help.
even so many thanks for your kind confirmation

    Note:
    To disable encryption manually:
    You need to replace fileencryption=ice with encryptable=ice only in userdata line (maybe rest lines) in vendor/etc/fstab.qcom
    To avoid stock recovery restoration manually:
    Rename system/recovery-from-boot.p to recovery-from-boot.p.bak

    How do I unlock bootloader on sm-n986w? OEM unlock is not in the dev option list
    US/Canada devices has no oem option. Can be unlocked via some services. I cant discuss here in xda because I didn't got approved yet to post. You can try to contact out of xda.

    What's the difference between this and mental? I know his is featured rich.
    Ability to flash system img for gsi etc..
    You still can use fastboot to flash GSI
    Most fixes he took from me and Im not interested in features that can be flashable zips.
