Once odin pass and device reboot, screen goes black then press vol up and power immediately and release power at logo. Or stock recovery will restored.

I did wonder if I might have to do something like this, thank you :)

Ok, I have seen this before on other same sun devices, but Im not able to mount/browse my external SD card. I can obviosuly work around the issue, but would like to be able to access/mount the ext. SD card.

I have the European version of the G781B on Android 11. Following your guidline it worked well.
Unfortunately there are 2 issues:

MTP is broken. The phoneis not correctly recognizedby the PC and files cannot be transfered.The phone however, is reconised by ADB. The latest Samsung drivers are installed on the PC. The driver says: further actionis required.

Backup in TWRP is not possible. See attached screenshot.

Any advice for remedial actions?

I think you still encrypted! flash multidisabler then format data and type yes to disable decryption.

After changing manually the line in fstab.qcom and wipe data I'm ending up in a bootloop. I can only boot into TWRP.
Trying transfer of multidisabler.zip by adb push ends up with: sdcard is no directory
Clean new flash or any other solution?

Sorry for these noob questions

Push file to / through adb
And set right permissions fstab after edit and check its not empty.

Thanks for the hint.
Thats what I've tried with no effect.
With too much uncertainties left I started again at square one, flashed ROM with odin and following afaneh92's instruction in post one it now turned out all fine.

Good work by afaneh92(y)(y)
