    My first post can be deleted if necessary, upon inspection of the data i realized my txt editor cut off quite a chunk on the original link. Here is a new link with complete infos. https://hastebin.com/omiwoqocif.xml

    Np for me :p , i don't know why the community is so aggressive to me, they just want everything for free I'm not forcing anyone to do anything, i consider it as a small donation for the time i spent working on it and they are free to get it or no :)

    Do not use Odin to flash anything, samsung only. The link is linking files used to create a recovery i believe. Useless to non devs. Pls be careful doing things with the bootloader unlocked Mr. Nextel69. At least until there is a publicly available twrp.

    Unlocked bootloader yes, twrp no. Will have to wait till someone makes one that's freely available (I read that there's a recovery but there's a charge for it) or someone to get it, upload it, and share it here (would be sick!!)

    Information about the phone such as partitions, build infos, ect. Necessary to compile a recovery option for the phone.

    There are hundreds of Android devices.

    Developers and contributors step up for the devices that they own or have a vested interest in, e.g., a friend or family member has something and needs help.

    Custom recoveries have been available and have evolved because of the open source approach - contributors are transparent with their work so that everyone down the line can benefit.

    TWRP didn't hatch itself overnight. The supporting codebase is downloaded for free precisely because of the communities that have worked before us. And that codebase is huge.

    It's work to build a custom recovery - real work.

    But it's open source. When you choose to work with it, you respect the licensing and the community approach.

    It's not personal and it's often thankless - and often fun and rewarding anyway.

    If you know how and someone wants to learn, and you have time, you pitch in with pointers. They take the baton and pass it on to the next newcomer in turn.

    I've developed software for a living for over 30 years. I've been contributing to open source off and on since the 90s - going on 20 years. Like others, I'd love to win the lottery and charitably contribute to the development of all of the hundreds of Android devices. But I haven't won that yet so I can't.

    I don't apologize for not having a vested interest in every device or for ignoring this one. I do my bit when I can.

    I think it's fantastic that you have ported TWRP for this device. Bravo.

    But by violating the trust inherent in open source, you have created a vested interest in others to protect the greater good.

    My friend that is how we got here. :)

    Please take the next step and publish your source - just as the sources and methods that you used were published before you.

    It will save everyone a lot of needless hassle. :D

    But if not, that's fine too. I will of course have to be considered a supplier and charge you $50 for any of my code or methods used in your TWRP port and get others to do the same and you'll have to raise your price to a few thousand dollars. Wait - that's downright silly. :D

    See how it works?

    Many thanks and many thanks to all offering to help. We will get back to you if we need to see more. :)

    And we very well may - too soon to say.

    We now have the critical information for the complete storage layout and much of the device architecture.

    We make no promises other than to try our best and keep you posted. Please remember that our time is limited so any expectations for time to completion will not be possible - and that's normal.

    As we progress I'll be happy to show you how it's done.

    One of my phones is running a custom rom built by a friend who is a psychologist. He got bit by the bug a year ago. The phone I'm using has a custom mod by a guy who was a barrista when he started. Open source is open to everyone who wants to learn how to give back. :)

    I love to learn. And if I could give back that's fine by me. I'm no crab when it comes to showing love on projects such as these.. Thanks..

    This reminds me of a Clint Eastwood Movie. "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly".
    Fortunately the Good looks to prevail.
    I know a developer that put all his passion in to his work. So much so that he is currently facing eviction, but he would never consider charging for something that is free and he thoroughly enjoys doing.

    Trump is our Commander-In-Chief and our country is more divided than ever. Should we despair? No, for it is Black History Month and is shaping up to be a special one indeed. Yesterday was 2/5. Brady won his 5th Superbowl Championship. Beyonce is pregnant with twins (2) making her family a family of five (5). So in addition to these blessings to the world, I give you THIS... Android and our love for it, can reunite us... lol
    P.S. Can someone please give these a try and post on the forum if they work. I haven't even unlocked my bootloader yet bc my laptop is acting up.
