I recently installed TWRP recovery into a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013 tablet running Android 4.1.1 via Odin. I wanted to install a custom ROM, in this case LineageOS. Unfortunately, I installed TWRP with the check box "Auto Reboot" ticked, this meant I could not boot the tablet into TWRP recovery mode; instead it booted with the default Android System Recovery.

I then read this question which provided the solution to this issue.

What I had to do was reinstall the same TWRP TAR file in the same method but with the aforementioned check box unticked. I employed the same methods but what it returned was:

<ID:0/003> Added!!
<ID:0/003> Odin engine v(ID:3.1203)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..

5 to 10 minutes later...

<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

I tried using a different TWRP TAR file but I gave me the same result.

How else should I reinstall TWRP and how should I install it correctly?

  • Odin does not understand .zip files. You need to feed it the TWRP .img – Grimoire Jun 19 '17 at 13:28
  • I was mistaken with the file extensions. I'll edit the question now. Also, I am not familiar with flashing in IMG format. How would I do this? – Pradana Aumars Jun 19 '17 at 14:23

Using the correct version of TWRP solved the issue. In this case, it was twrp-

In my previous attempts, I had used the incorrect versions of TWRP for my specific device: twrp- and twrp-3.0.2-0-lt03wifiue.img.tar.
