  1. The file you need is actually openrecovery-twrp- Will be near the bottom of the list on the website provided.

  2. My phone will not root…I have done it twice…Teamwin and Super user appear to be well functioning files…anf I seem to be performing the process correctly…but titanium backup says that I am not rooted.

  3. Thank you so much. Worked great. I couldn’t find the twrp tar file at first… Windows libraries trying to help again…. not! I have Titanium backup installed now… Now on to the wonderful world of ROMs!

  4. Worked Perfectly! Had a little trouble booting in recovery mode but got it to work on third try, remember to release the three buttons as soon as you see the first samsung menu.

  5. Has anyone encountered this? Everything is the same in the about device area. I Downloaded all the files opened ODIN get the TWRP get into the download on my phone then it shows this on ODIN.
    Enter CS for MD5..
    Check MD5.. Do not uplug the cable..
    Please wait..
    I wait nothing happens Odin is all greyed out and I get a (Not Responding) in the header.
    I tried re-downloading everything still the same any ideas?

  6. Thank you so much Kim! I have been trying to root my phone for about 3 months now. Bricking it a few times (2 soft 1 hard). I went on several site and tried their’s, paid $20 for Root Android Pro (just for them to give directions on how to root using ODIN – I already did that), and now finally yours was the finally the one that worked.

  7. I’ve tried two different ways and neither has worked. When I press UP and DOWN volume and the power button together it never goes to a Teamwin screen it just buzzes.

    1. I had this problem, just hold down the power until it starts to boot up, release the power but keep holding volume down and up for a bit longer.

  8. i rooted my i717 with above method. and after having it restarted its Wi-Fi stopped working. Wi-Fi on/off key becomes inactive.

    then i went to superSU and clicked “full unroot” but my Wi-Fi never started working again.

    leads would be greatly appreciaated.

  9. Actually, it I time it right, I see the Samsung Logo go by, it don’t get any buzzing, and the techwin screen is visable for 1 second. then it starts buzzing
