How to install TWRP Recovery on Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6
Do you want to install TWRP Recovery on your Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6? As you can see, here we are to help you and you know that so many advantages are waiting for you!
However, we want to be clear about the fact that you can use this post only for the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6 version. To be more precise, your device’s model number has to be SM-G920P, so don’t hesitate to check the version of your device under Settings> About Device menu.
So, you have been warned that you must not attempt to use this guide with any other Galaxy S6 version or you risk soft bricking it (if not even worst).
In other cases, you can use our guide on How to Flash TWRP Recovery on Various Galaxy S6 Versions (China, Korea, T-Mobile, US Cellular and more) from here or the tutorial for installing TWRP Recovery on the International Samsung Galaxy S6 from here.
Before you can actually start the installation process, you must make a backup of your data and check the battery life, just to be sure that your smartphone won’t turn off in the middle of the operation. Even more, don’t forget that USB Debugging should be enabled from the Developer Options section and that Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6 won’t turn off during the procedure (so, charge it now).
To be clear right from the start, this is not an official procedure, so it will void the warranty of your device (here we have a solution for this problem). And yes, you can use this guide on how to install TWRP Recovery on Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6 only if you are an advanced Android user.
We are not responsible in case you lose any of your precious data in the process or after or if you brick the handset. Are you ready for that? Do you assume the entire responsibility for the result? Then, enough with the talking and let’s start!
