    I am stuck. I have rooted the device but I cannot seem to download the supersu program correctly. The file does not appear as a whole program it looks like this folders to be extracted. When I extract them they are still just folders.

    ive done it and after a 5 se it said pass . now on the tab it says downloading dont tun off target . so i shall just let it be there untill its dne ?

    I used this method and it worked and I did use the file from goo as listed in the above post. I also used odin3 v3.07 as it was the only way to uncheck auto reboot (version 3.09 will not let you uncheck auto reboot).

    Make sure you use the .tar extension open recovery file from goo. Also, after you hit the Start button let it do its thing for a while until you see Pass. I was too fast a few times and unhooked /rebooted and it did not work. On the third try I walked away and when I came back it said PASS.

    After it says pass…disconnect the cable and hold down the Power, Volume Up and Home buttons together until you see the Samsung logo then let go of the Power button only. The system will boot to TWRP recovery. In the future to get into TWRP that is how you do it. If you only hold the power down and power it will open the stock recovery download page.
    I flashed TWRP version using this method with no problem. Good luck

    The method may be correct, but the supplied files are wrong. The “techerrata” source has the wrong or bad images. I spent the last 2 days trying to figure this out, until i searched and found the sources from “” — These work.

    I did this, but still see the “Android System Recovery “
