    Everything except for what you stated in the OP seems to be working. I just factory reset my phone and restoring my nandroid backup now to double check that. when you do a factory reset it reboots into recovery and gets stuck in the recovery loop also. this time only took a second to get back going. will let you know shortly.

    EDIT : I did a full Nandroid backup. Factory reset phone( Had the recovery loop issue upon completion) . Restored Nandroid backup and everything is completely restored. Now I feel like a kid at Christmas !

    I'm going to follow this thread as this is the best news for this device in quite some time.

    Due to my job, I can hardly find time to participate on the forum, but new things like Twrp for this device was a gift!!!

    When I used it on my device it would not let me even get through because I presume the touch screen was diabled. I had to flash my firmware again. ****ing sucks

    That's strange. Do you have the Straight Talk variant ( SM-S920L ) ?

    They are not the same. You have to find a recovery for your specific model. Flashing recoveries and roms to a phone they are not designed for will cause a lot of problems ( Possibly Brick your phone ).

    No, what I mean is that I got the right recovery for my model (SM-G360T) and I mean that both devices look the same

    Ok. I just didn't want people to get the impression that this recovery doesn't work. It works fine on the SM-S920L ( Straight Talk) other than what the Dev has stated as bugs .
