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 S21 Ultra G9980, G998U, G998U1 and G998W.

US/Canada bootloader unlock thread:

If anyone wants to get unlocked and rooted hit afaneh92 up he is awesome and he helped me get my s21 ultra snapdragon unlocked and rooted and installed TWRP which is something I really never thought would be possible because I have always knew in recent years that only the international versions of samsung phones would be able to be unlocked so hats off to everyone involved for offering their services and hardwork!

@jmac052002 - I think I am going to follow your advice. I really miss my Nexus 6 for the ease of flashing. Samsung is a great phone but not very flash friendly. Cheers

Hello, will this method work with HK version of SD?
Also once this is used and went well, can i flash Dr. Rom?

@afaneh92 - I am in the process of getting all files needed for my S21. Can you point me to the best Magisk for my phone? I have the p3q, Vbmeta_diabled_Rtar , as well as Odin v3.14.4. I think all I am going to need is the drivers. Everything neatly in one folder. Cheers

    This is what I get when I try to back up data partition. Also says this when I try to copy system files in TWRP.
    Just ignore it, will fix it in next build
