    I found a under the Sprint S3 tab of TWRP's website but I don't know what file I need to flash to get TWRP Recovery. Is it the same way through Odin? Can someone direct me to the correct file and how to do it?

    Mobile Odin is money and I don't know what file to flash.

    You would need the tar file to flash in odin or zip file to flash with current recovery

    You can find a flashable zip in the sprint forums.
    Android Phones > Samsung Galaxy S3 > (Sprint / Cricket) Galaxy S3 - All Things Root
    CWM or TWRP

    Thank you :) I wanted to ask though. There's a version 2.6 or so on their sprint s3 page is it compatible?

    I asked because I wasn't sure if it was compatible and up to what version.
    I read that post it became somewhat off topic

    Not to mention this conversation has taken place on in the forum once already in a listing under almost the exact same name.

    So any twrp tar file for the sprint s3 is flashable with Odin? And I read that post before.

    ironically, it is my thread.
    and yes, though of course I cannot guarantee future compatibility.
    Just install 2.5, I have that running right now.

    Thank you. So just use this instead of Odin?

    So find the 2.5 tar from their site and flash it? And to confirm 2.6 does not work?
