    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 S20 FE 5G G7810, G781B, G781N, G781U, G781U1 and G981W.

    Hello ,
    Okay I just tried to install twrp. So the installation went well but the concern is that it does not recognize my sd card and therefore cannot access the multidisabler and magik files to continue ....

    I also tested by putting everything on a usb key and the same problem .....

    You can push them through adb to any place like root / or /data
    Also you can use external sd!

    Try to copy files to sdcard while you booted to system!
    USB OTG will be fixed next build.

    Your idea to connect the pc to the phone to seem to work. Twrp recognized the twrp file on my disk and I introduced the 2 files. And there it worked .... Thank you very much for the idea.

    Silly question but can I still install OTA updates if I unlock bootloader/flash custom recovery or root the phone? And will stock recovery flash every time I install OTA update?

    Thanks in advance

    Flashing multidsabler make some changes to system and vendor. So no OTA, Flash full firmware instead.
    Is there magisk that we can root? Any guides on it please.
    Flash magisk zip in TWRP or patch boot.img using magisk manager and flash via odin.

    Hello ,
    This update can be installed directly or must first be installed the 1st version. I ask this question given the size difference between the 2. Thank you for your answer .

    Yes can be flashed directly, You can see in changelog that we moved to gzip format, that explain the size difference.

      @afaneh92 just checking in to ask what if any sources to you want / need to help you ?
      I'm on the Samsung open source site now and downloading a zip for G781BXXU2CUD1 but I've no idea if it's kernel sources inside (280mbs ish). another page I saw here mentioned using the inquiry tab to submit a request.

      if you can tell me exactly what you want I'll more than happily put in a request for it, I'm sure others would too.

      I'll edit this later and add the zip files full name that I've downloaded and if you want that I'll put it mediafire or similar.

      SM-G781B_SEA_RR_Opensource.zip is the archive name, taken from clicking on G781BXXU2CUD1 which matches my current baseband and buildnumberView attachment 5299763
      I will start working on the new kernel source soon.

      @QRCode please consider making a thread about the exact method it required, resources needed and your experience with it.
      this sort of thing will be useful to others. particularly of interest is the features that don't work currently.
      I'll do my best still testing everything compiling my data etc

      Always use latest
      After hours of research and hard effort I have hentaiOS running smooth as butter it's freaking fast Better than the bloated one ui I'll continue testing changed the phone completely and I have my 120hz enabled as well so it's like slicing butter

      Guys! This is not root or magisk thread.
      The instructions for TWRP in OP, Don't mix with magisk instructions. And dont tell me that disabling vbmeta not required when you already disabled it by patching AP.
