    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 G780F.

    Download & Guide:

    Or:
    - Go to Advanced > Terminal, type: multidisabler.​
    If vendor complain about free space left on device, will attempt to resize vendor. and it ask to - Run multidisabler again!.​
    - Type: multidisabler again. will see - Finished. when done.​
    7. Go back to Wipe > Format Data > type yes.

    What about AVB? Guides said to disable that for Magisk as well, but most of us have managed to flash Magisk with Odin just fine without following AVB steps. Are they still necessary?
    If you can boot to system after flashing TWRP, then no need to flash vbmeta_disable.tar

      Be careful - the Samsung Android 11 firmware update which includes OneUI 3.1 again provides a new and incompatible kernel and therefore another TWRP would be needed (which is not available atm).

      If you try to use the one for OneUI 3.0 it leads to a boot loop - which happened here...
      --> you have to use the original recovery part from Samsung's firmware in that situation
      I reflashed that on my phone, so I currently don't have a TWRP (until afaneh92 gets the newer kernel source code from Samsung and is able to build a new TWRP for that new kernel ;))

      What I miss in the story: are the TWRP versions with newer integrated kernel compatible with the older firmwares (e.g. is TWRP Android 11, OneUI 3.0 working for Android 10 firmware versions?) or do we need a special TWRP version for each firmware?

      Having the same issue, cannot disable AVB on Odin
      Unlock bootloader first then check kg state in download mode its must be checking not prenormal.
      And this work only on android 10. Not yet ready for android 11.

      I could root it, what doesn't work for me is TWRP I'm on Android 11 One Ui 3.1
      That's what I mentioned above - the version with OneUI 3.1 brings a new (incompatible) kernel with it - so the TWRP must be based on the same kernel sources of this kernel - but currently they're not available - so at the moment there's no TWRP for this...

      @afaneh92 asked Samsung for the corresponding sources, but that takes some time...

      BTW, I also use the version with Android 11 / OneUI 3.1 - with magisk root, LSPosed framework and some special patches - it works very well (without TWRP) :)
