    I think I've rooted my avant and I'm trying to install twrp recovery I run through the steps in Odin everything seems fine Odin says Pass, I boot into download mode and the stock recovery shows up...what am I doing wrong..? the program I rooted with was CF-auto root, I do have SUPER SU in my device so I'm assuming I did root it right...? Any advise would be great

    Uncheck auto reboot in Odin. Load the Twrp tar, press start.
    Once it says pass, unplug the phone and remove the battery.

    Then reinsert the battery and hold volume up, home and power.

    Are you letting it boot up when you are doing the battery pull, if so don't.
    Where did you get Twrp is it the one by shabbypenguin on this forum?

    What's the android version & build number?

    I'm at work replying so i will answer it just might take a bit

    That's another thing...supersu was on my phone as an app. I opened it it said the apps installing if it takes more than 5 minutes reboot and try again. I rebooted and Supersu is gone. I've flashed cf-auto root, and it doesn't show up again. Basically it disappeared.

    I rarely use CF auto root...
    There is a Twrp on this forum that works perfectly.

    Google search Twrp Galaxy Avant.
    Then add the last three of the build number.
