Hello,


thanks to Sattarvoybek from 4pda we've got a working TWRP for the S7!!!

Install it by dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery
or Flashify ...

(only if u've got root! )

Yes ... it's confirmed to work! ... installed it on my S7 ...

1st: root your phone ... best way from my point of view ... kingo 4.8 (oldie but goldie ... working!) + 'kingo to supersu 1.3' (Alternative: Replace_Kinguser_with_SuperSU-v2.0) - you will need adb-access for this ...
2nd: Install it by dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery (adb again, su mode)

(See attachments)

Regards

1. activate dev.options by tapping 'build no' (about this phone) 7x ...
2. inside dev.options activate usb debugging/adb
3. install: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2588979
4. connect your phone and open a cmd prompt/terminal
5. adb shell ... then u enter ur phone and can do funny things in there

More detailed tutorials are around ... but ... are u sure, that u need a recovery?! - what's ur plan?

hey, it would not hurt to have a recovery that isn't the basic one.
as for what i need it for, the basics, flashing apps that won't install and stuff like that. also backing up the phone if i need.

The short process is:

root - change to supersu (the howto is inside the zip) - download the recovery and save the file to ur sd - execute the dd copy without!!! typos ... (check it twice)
Try 'Replace_Kinguser_with_SuperSU-v2.0.zip' first ... there's some memory that this on was easier ...

adb reboot recovery (inside a cmd/terminal - phone connected)
should show the magic ...

why would i switch from kingroot? it's better than SuperSu.

It has many restrictions, installs a lot of crap to ur phone and many root-dependant programs will ask for supersu to work ... beside that I'm not sure, that u will be able to flash the recovery with this 'limited' root (maybe someone has some experience?!)

Beside that u could circumvent the dd -thing and check if kingo is 'enough'/capable by using Flashify + the recovery.img.
Never tested it ... but it's supposed to work (no warranty!) :P

Let's say that 'there's one ring to rule them all' ... and it's called 'chainfire supersu' ... which became kind of a standard and many apps especially ask for it (foldermount f.e.).
Kingroot has kind of some funny effects (google it) - that's one of the reasons most people like to change it to supersu - on the other hand kingroot does a great job for rooting phones ... that's the reason many people get into using it ...

Anyway ... please let me know, if flashify manages the installation of the recovery!
