The T-Mobile version of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 can now be installed with a new version of TWRP recovery. The new release is including support for Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, which means that now TWRP recovery can smoothly run on the latest Android built. Thus, if you want to tweak your T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3, now there is nothing to stop you from moving forward.

When updating your Note 3 with an official built of Android OS (though Odin of course, as if your phone is rooted or installed with a custom ROM, you cannot receive OTA notifications) everything is restored back to stock. That means root access is revoked, factory and default restrictions reinstalled and also stock recovery added even if a custom recovery image was previously ensured. So, after updating your T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop OS your device will be returned back to its initial state.

But, since now a new TWRP recovery software was released, you can safely flash the same on the new Android system. Thus, afterwards you can use Chainfire’s SuperSU root exploit for rooting your Note 3 on Android 5.0 Lollipop and for completing many other custom procedures.

If you want to install this new TWRP recovery release, then all you have to do is to download the recovery file on your computer. Then, use Odin and flash the file on your Note 3, just like you would do with a general Android update. Do note though that you are about to complete an unofficial operation, so you will lose your phone’s warranty.

Well, that was all for now; do tell us if you need our assistance as we can develop a proper step by step guide from which you can learn how to install TWRP recovery on T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3.
