How to Install TWRP 3.2.3 Custom Recovery on Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
Do you want to install the latest TWRP 3.2.3 Custom Recovery on your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus? Be sure of the fact that I am here to help. A TWRP custom recovery will allow you to install custom ROMs and enjoy various advanced options such as formatting the system partition or making backups, so I know that this is what you dreamed of for a while.
Note though that TWRP is currently only available for the Samsung Exynos variants, which means this phone having a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor will not be able to work with this recovery.
You may clearly try flashing this recovery on a non-supported Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus variant by yourself, but all at your own risk. And even if you play by the book, installing a custom recovery may void your device’s warranty.
