Looking to download TWRP recovery for your Samsung phone??… then yes, you are at the right place. Here is a list of TWRP recovery for Samsung phones. Here you will find several officially maintained TWRP recoveries and several TWRP recoveries built by individual developers for almost all the Samsung phones.
What is TWRP recovery??
TWRP stands for Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is a custom recovery for Android phones, which is an open source project. Team Win project started on porting of CM7 for HTC EVO 4G and later settled to work on a custom recovery project which is now TWRP, one of the leading custom recovery available to date covering a wide range of available Android phones and Tablets.
Why do you need TWRP recovery for your Samsung Phone?
With the help of TWRP recovery, you will be able to install a wide range of custom ROMs available for a particular device. It’s for sure, an Android device won’t get the latest Android update after 2 or 3 years of its inception. If you need to have the latest Android running on your phone, then you need to install a custom Android ROM like Lineage OS, CyanogenMod, Resurrection Remix ROM etc. and this is not possible without a custom recovery like TWRP recovery.
In addition to installing custom ROM, the TWRP custom recovery has some more features as compared to any other stock recovery. Here are few features of them:
– Touch screen support
– Current ROM image backup and restore
– F2FS filesystem support
– MTP support (You can access files while using TWRP recovery)
– ADB sideload installation support
– Many more other features

How to Install TWRP on a Samsung phone:
The TWRP recovery for a Samsung phone may be in two file extensions: .tar or .tar.md5 and .img
– Following is the guide to install a TWRP on Samsung Phone with .tar or .tar.md5 extension using ODIN (a third party Windows Application) [THIS IS THE EASIEST AND DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY BOOTLOADER UNLOCK]
– Following guide is a generic guide that applies for all .img extension files:
Install TWRP using fastboot [THIS GUIDE REQUIRES THE BOOTLOADER TO BE UNLOCKED ON YOUR PHONE. THIS WILL TRIP THE KNOX ON YOUR SAMSUNG PHONE AND MAY VOID WARRANTY]
That’s all my friend. The above list is not complete and will be updated when more and more devices are made available with TWRP support.
