Peculiar that it seems to flash twice.
 
Thanks pal, I tried that last night, flashed back to stock 4.4.2 using Odin 3.09.

Altho the download I found for it only seemed to have one tar file. Not sure if I need a BL tar too.

Still no dice tho dammit :(
Try samfirm_reborn to get multiple part ROM.
There you have to check "binary nature" (or something like that) and "automatic decryption".
 
OK so the github here seems to host what looks like an ODin replacement. I'm guessing, I looked at 2 files.

BUt are you saying i should use this instead of Odin? I thought you were showing me somewhere to download the stock ROM
No replacement, just a tool to download stock ROMs as multiple parts versions. SamFirm_Reborn_0.3.6.2.zip is what you need.
Unpack the .zip and start the .exe.

Ok so the latest update is that I still cannot flash TWRP recovery. I just end up at the usual download recovery.

However some information has changed on the screen since I revert to stock:

The CURRENT BINARY changed to Samsung Offical after revert and the SYSTEM STATUS: Official.

ANd following a Odin 3.09 flash of TWRP 2.8.3.0 the CURRENT BINARY has changed to Custom.

FLashing seems to be doing something, but now aht I want :(

if I'm allowed to ask, any recommendations for a stable yet as modern as possible custom rom?
I have lineage 17.1 andd was goingto give that a whirl....

    @radioshed I've flashed my T325 again not to long ago, after I had to return to stock. So I know bootloader isn't locked.
    Did you take care to boot directly into TWRP after flashing it via Odin?
    If you let it reboot automatically the stock recovery gets reanimated.
    Uncheck "auto reboot" in Odin and do it manually.
    I never use anything else but Odin and read that TWRP app isn't recommended to use.
    Know nothing about flashify.
    Rooting stock isn't necessary as you're going to flash a custom ROM anyhow.

    Yea I had auto reboot off and booted into recovery when Odin finished.
    Looked just the same. No TWRP :(

    Not sure what else to do
    Which file did you take and where from?

    Rather than using Odin to flash TWRP and then that for a customrom, can I just use Odim for the rom?

    If so which box do I use in Odin?

    Thanks for your response btw
    Odin can not flash custom ROMs

    I have the cf auto root for the t320 which I downloaded. That worked tho

    I got the tar file for TWRP from the TWRP website, the apk too.

    I've tried both to flash the TWRP recovery but I still seem to end up with the original recovery screen
    After flashing turn it off and reboot with button combo.
    Perhaps you were not fast enough when rebooting directly after flashing. I sometimes need to flash TWRP several times.
    You've put it in "AP" didn't you?
