TWRP for all S20 Series (z3s)

Installation procedure

IS MANDATORY TO BE ON ANDROID 11 DUB5 OR NEWER FW BEFORE FLASHING BR 3.1 !!!

Dirty flash of BR 3.1 over BR 3.0 is ok.


0) Backup ALL your important files to PC, ext drives, etc

1) Download and copy the BR v3.1 ROM zip into your external storage or USB stick if you're encrypted

2) Download DUC7 stock FW for your phone model and unpack in your PC

3) Boot in download mode (Vol Up + Vol Down + plug the USB cable connected already to PC) and load up Odin on PC
Please use standard USB to USB-C cable (not USB-C to USB-C) otherwise you will get issues flashing FW in Odin
Turn off Auto Reboot in Odin

4) Select files BL, AP, CP & HOME_CSC (keep data)
**do not start flash yet

5) Get a copy of Ian's latest TWRP (twrp-z3s-3.5.1_10-A11_x_ianmacd.img) and rename it to recovery.img. Add this recovery.img and the attached patched vbmeta.img to a twrp_vbmeta_patched.tar file using 7zip.
**rename the attached vbmeta.img.zip to vbmeta.img (don't unzip it)

6) Add the above twrp_vbmeta_patched.tar file containing the TWRP + patched vbmeta.img into the USERDATA slot in Odin

7) Uncheck the auto reboot option in Odin and start the flashing

8) When flashing completes (keep usb plugged in !!!), hold Vol Down + Power buttons and then as soon as the screen goes black hold Vol Up + Power buttons to boot to recovery
*be warned first time you boot into recovery it will initialize and then reboot so just keep the buttons Vol Up + Power buttons pressed longer
**if you boot in stock FW, your data will be encrypted and you'll need to wipe your data before flashing BR 3.1

9) When boot in TWRP, wipe your data if you're encrypted, flash BR 3.1 zip and then reboot to system

10) After the first boot, install Magisk Manager canary if necessary; when you'll start Magisk Manager for the first time, reply with YES (agree to reboot) after MM have setup your root environment
*after reboot, go to Magisk Manager settings and toggle On MagiskHide

10) Enjoy....


1. Backup to PC all your important files: documents, pictures, contacts, SMS, etc. BEFORE starting to flash anything
2. If you have issues booting the ROM, try the clean flash
3. Starting with Android 11, to boot into TWRP you need to use a USB cable connected to PC (same as DL mode) or a USB stick
4. If you like my work, consider buying me a coffee (PayPal link)

Disappointing, I followed your directions to the letter and I have a soft bricked 985f. I have tried to flash 3 times now. I flashed and it goes all the way to pass but then when I try to boot twrp it sits there. Yes I'm plugged in to my pc, even tried multiple cords and ports and clean install, never can get to twrp. Gotta sleep, hopefully it doesn't burn in overnight since I can't shut it off.

I used the vmbeta.img and the ianmcd recovery, i made them into a tar with 7zip and I renamed it to recovery.img before combining. I even copied and pasted the name you said to name it. Could we get a link to the correct twrp?

I agree it has to be the twrp, but I got the one mentioned off of telegram the twrp telegram by ian.

    Downloaded and installed the ROM, running nicely (y)

    I did have a lot of issues flashing the stock ROM and TWRP/vbmeta files.

    First Odin was handing on flashing super.img, but I used a different USB port and cable (as well as Odin 3.14.1_3B Patched from the Odin thread on XDA). I have been unlucky in the past with my S20+, with port/cable combinations, so I was ready for that...

    The other issue was the TWRP/vbmeta files. I tried with the attachment in the OP - and others in this thread - but after flashing successfully I could only reboot to Download. That is, it wouldn't enter TWRP, despite Odin having given the OK to both the recovery and vbmeta image flashes. So I created this, making sure the files inside the .tar file werre recovery.img and vbmeta.img, and it finally flashed OK.

    A poster described first compressing these files to lz4 and then tar-ing them, but that just gave me an file verification error in Odin at the beginning of the flashing process.

    So, if you are having difficulties with booting to TWRP after flashing in Odin, try this file in the UserData slot

    How is it done if I want to go back to stock? Is there any procedure before doing it?

    I tried to do it with ODIN in bootloader mode but it stops in the process ...

    I appreciate your help, I have an S20 SM-G980F

    PD: will someone have the original PIT file out there too? thnks
    I faced the same problem. For me, only ODIN 3.13.1 worked. I used USB-A to USB-C cable directly connected to computer. I got the stock rom using frija 1.4.3 (use correct CSC!). I also used the CSC file (erase data) when flashing, not the HOME-CSC.

    Hello everyone, this thread it's not so active, so I recommend you to switch to the Telegram group, there are many people that can always help you, even with the smallest problem, so you don't have to be a guru on installing custom roms.
    About this ROM. After 2 days of usage I can say that it's a good ROM and I recommend it. I wanted a ROM that's based on the Samsung ROM and this is what I was looking for. What's the difference between the Samsung ROM and this ROM? Well, this it's debloated and it's helping you with the battery life( let's say 10-15% more, not so much, but this it's Samsung fault, not the dev one), it's much faster than the original ROM, and overall I really like it.
