It also allows you to take a Full Nandroid Backup and restore it later, one-click image file flashing, and remove bloatware, overclock and underclock. Using TWRP, one can easily clean Wipe, Cache, and Data after flashing any image file to reflect the changes and rectify minor errors due to cache.

Step 3: While the device is turned off, press the ‘Power+Volume Down+Home’ buttons simultaneously, which will put the device into the Download Mode. If this key combination doesn’t work for your device, then search for the key combination for your device in Google.

Step 4. Now, connect the Samsung device to the computer through a USB Cable. Then navigate to the folder where Odin files were extracted, right-click on the ‘Odin’ executable file, and click ‘Run as administrator’.

Step 5: The interface should display something like below with ‘ID: COM’ mentioned, and carefully check the interface below.

Step 6: Notice the ‘ID: COM’; there is a blank space underneath, which turns blue after the device gets recognized. The device should be recognized if your computer has the correct drivers installed.

Step 7: Next, what we need to do is to click on ‘AP’ and then go to the firmware archive, locate the .tar.md5 file, and select the same after clicking on ‘AP’.

Note: There is a PIT section under the Re-partition. Do not place any file under the ‘PIT section’, and ensure that ‘re-partition’ is not checked. Just tick/ check the ‘Auto Reboot’ and ‘F. Reset Time options.

Step 8: As soon as the TWRP (.img) file is loaded into the AP Section, the process can begin to start the flashing or installation. Ensure you do not touch the USB cable while the flashing process runs.

Step 9: If everything goes fine, then at the end, you will see the message ‘PASS’ or ‘RESET’ in green colour, indicating the TWRP flashing process has been completed successfully for your device, and it now has TWRP Recovery. At this stage, the device would reboot automatically. Don’t panic; this is normal. Now, you can disconnect the device from the computer.
