From this post, you could download the TWRP Recovery for all the Samsung Devices and then install it via ODIN Tool. First off, we will be listing the official TWRP recoveries. The thing is not every device from the Samsung OEM currently has an official TWRP Recovery. In that case, we have managed to get our hands on those devices unofficial builds. TWRP Recovery or Team Win Recovery Project is the most widely used custom recovery for Android.
Well, every Android device does come with its own stock recovery, so what is the need for a custom recovery like TWRP? The thing is with stock recovery, you could clear cache, data, or install via Sideload, and that is it. The stock recovery isn’t designed to carry out advanced functionalities. This is where the TWRP comes into the frame. With a plethora of functions, it has become every tech enthusiast’s need, rather than a luxury. Let’s check out some of the reasons that could further support this claim.

Advantages of TWRP Recovery
There are quite a lot of noteworthy features that the TWRP recovery brings in with itself. Here are just a few of them:
- Installing a plethora of files including flashable ZIP files, IMG files, Custom ROMs, Modules, frameworks, etc.
- Taking a complete Nandroid Backup: This does not only includes all the app data but also each and every device partition. In the case of a soft-brick or bootloop, you could easily boot your device to TWRP and restore this Nandroid backup. It will bring your device back to normal working condition.
- Wiping Partitions: You could also wipe off various device partitions including the system, data, cache, vendor, etc.
- Mount: TWRP also allows you to mount various external drives including Pen Drive.
- Advanced Functionalities: It also holds some advanced functionalities like ADB Sideload, File Manager, Fix Recovery Bootloop, among others.
While these are indeed some pretty important features, every side has two coins and so does this one. There are some associated risks with TWRP Recovery as well. Here are a few of them.

Disadvantages of TWRP Recovery
- Some OEMs only allows for installing official OTA updates via stock recovery. You cannot flash updates via a custom recovery like TWRP.
- Flashing a custom recovery like TWRP is itself quite risky and might lead to a brick or bootloop device if you end up flashing an earlier build or messes up even a single step.
- Unofficial builds always bring up some uninvited risks as well. And in the case of Samsung, most of the devices have unofficial TWRP support. The reason being the closed-source nature of the Exynos chipset.
