IMPORTANT:
PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS POST BEFORE FLASHING ANYTHING TO YOUR DEVICE.


WHATEVER YOU DO BEFORE FLASHING ANYTHING MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DEVICE AND HAVE THE STOCK FIRMWARE TO HAND JUST IN CASE, DOWNLOADED FROM SAMMOBILE OR UPDATO.
THIS WILL TRIP KNOX AND MAY VOID YOUR WARRANTY!


Instructions:

Flash with ODIN using the AP slot.

1. Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
2. Uncheck Auto reboot.
3. Load the respective file below into the AP slot and hit start.
4. 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.
Failure to implicitly comply with step 4 will result in stock recovery replacing TWRP at first boot

NOTE: Since android 5.1.1 it is necessary to enable OEM Unlock.
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER ‘BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK’ WHEN FLASHING.

IMPORTANT! This device enforces dm-verity. ANY modifications or even mounting system will put the device into a bootloop. To prevent this TWRP will ask at first boot if you want to keep system ‘Read only’ or ‘Allow modifications to system’. If you choose to keep ‘Read only’ you will have to flash TWRP at every boot to recovery.
If you choose to ‘Allow’ then Magisk needs flashing below to disable dm-verity.

Follow the instructions below to disable dmverity, forced encryption and mount internal storage(DATA):

MARSHMALLOW AND NOUGAT ONLY!:

1. Boot to Twrp

5. Reboot
