qf8u_20170905_130505.jpg


this version just tested in J5 pro 2017 (android 7).
use latest kernel source from opensource.samsung.com

device tree : github

mtp not work in linux.

Instructions:

Flash with ODIN 3.10.7 in the AP slot.
Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
Uncheck Auto reboot.
Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.
After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding POWER + HOME.
You should now see TWRP recovery.

1. Boot to Twrp
2. Format Data partition using FORMAT DATA button under Wipe options.
(Note: This will wipe the internal storage)

just putting my 2 cents in, this TWRP does not work with J530Y, it installs and boots to system after being installed but trying to reboot when you enter causes a boot loop incase any 1 comes across this and has the same model as me, my only complaint is the, debug? text in the terminal, but thats just a small gripe of mine

what would happen if I flashed this on a frp locked SM-J530F? I assume that the OEM Unlocking is disabled, is it worth a shot or is it just a waste of time?

Can't moun data on SM-J530F (J5 2017) (non Pro)
Dont forget Point 2.(Format Data)
Now boot.img is taking a long time to flash. Trying to flash it in AP slot of Odin.
There is not an option in TWRP to install image.

Mine could not see it as well. Maybe you should convert .tar to .img? After some research i found out TWRP can't flash .tar.
Although, recovery works fine without patching boot.

if u unzip that patch u would get .img and use that in twrp .

I root mine J530F yesterday and install twrp afterwords. It's working, but no 2/3/4G network anymore after flashing one of both.
Not possible to install boot image from twrp app. Also sound problems and brightness troubles.
I am going back to stock rom and wait for a while for a better later version.

I think you have to do the inverse process. Flash twrp and after supersu

Oke I start from scratch again...

Flashed the stok ROM first.
Enable OEM and USB debugging
Flashed TWRP twrp_v3.1.1_SM-J530F with Odin3 v3.12.7 and disable Auto Reboot option.
Important: Reboot my phone holding Vol down, Home button, Power button AND when vibrate, Imminently pushed Vol up, Home button, Power button to go directly into TWRP.
Install Magisk-v14.0 (it fails, but just do it instead of installing SuperSU)
Boot my phone and restore al my apps from the play store include root checker. It has already root acces now :D
Install MagiskManager-v5.3.0.apk and dowload inside this app Magisk-v14.0.zip and choose Update (recommended)
With MagiskManager you are now able to disable root checking apps like SnapChat from root access. So my Snapchat is still working now :D

Hope this will help you.
If so than let me know with :good:
