App Install Method (Requires Root):

Download the Official TWRP App (root required):

Install the app and open it. Agree to the Terms. Select TWRP Flash. Select your device from the device list (s3ve3g) and choose a version. The file will download to your Downloads folder. Browse to and select the file. Tap on Flash to Recovery. Find out more about the app here.

Download Links:

Current and past versions of TWRP can be found at one of the mirrors below:

TWRP Install (Requires TWRP 2.8.4 or higher already installed):

Download the latest TWRP image file (.img) from the download link and boot TWRP. Go to install and find and select the Images... button. Browse to the image that you downloaded and select it. Choose recovery and swipe to flash.

Odin Install Method (No Root Required):

You will need to download and install Odin on your PC. Once you have Odin installed, download the proper .tar file for your device from the download link above. Power off your device. Turn on your device using the proper key combo to get into download mode and attach the device to your computer via a USB cable. Use the PDA tab or button to browse to and select the tar file that you downloaded and flash the device.

Note many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, use Google to find the proper key combo to enter recovery. After typing fastboot reboot, hold the key combo and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.

dd Install Method (Requires Root):

Download the latest image file (.img) from the download link above. Place it in the root of your /sdcard folder and rename it to twrp.img. Run the following commands via adb shell or a terminal emulator app:


dd if=/sdcard/twrp.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

    recovery.fstab: use /dev/block/by-name symlink for /preload GT-I9301I (s3ve3g) and GT-I9300I (s3ve3gds) have different partition tables. /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 on s3ve3g links to the actual preload partition whereas on s3ve3gds it links to the userdata partition. This will lead to data loss in /data if the user tries to wipe /preload on s3ve3gds devices. To fix this use /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/hidden symlink for preload partition.

    s3ve3g: bring up a minimal device tree to allow building TWRP - this allow us to ditch the prebuilt kernel and dt used until now - based on android-7.1 branch
