TWRP Recovery 2.7 On The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE N7505
When it comes to custom roms and flashing different zip files using a recovery, TWRP is considered one of the best of what’s available. TWRP is easy to use and it has the advantage of allowing you to select all the files you want to flash in one shot, installing them automatically one-by-one. This reduces the effort as you don’t need to go back every time you want to flash a file.
TWRP can also make a back-up of your current ROM that you can restore afterwards if something happens to the ROM you installed. The interface is also simpler then the other popular custom recovery, CWM.
In this guide, we are going to show you how to install TWRP Recovery 2.7 on a Galaxy 3 Neo LTE. Before we begin, make sure of the following:
- Your device is the proper model. Check by going to Settings> About. If the model number is SM-N7505, go ahead. Don’t use this guide with any other device.
- You have backed up all your important messages, contacts and call logs.
- You have backed up your mobiles EFS data.
- You have enabled USB debugging mode.

Note: The methods needed to flash custom recoveries, roms and to root your phone can result in bricking your device. Rooting your device will also void the warranty and it will no longer be eligible for free device services from manufacturers or warranty providers. Be responsible and keep these in mind before you decide to proceed on your own responsibility. In case a mishap occurs, we or the device manufacturers should never be held responsible.
