    I tried to flash TWRP to my device and it successfully rebooted into Android with no problems, but TWRP did not install. It now reboots into Android Recovery. I can also get into download mode. Any help is appreciated. It's a Samsung Galaxy S6 on Android 7.0. Please help!!

    I assume I need to flash the stock Android ROM but I don't know how to get that. The model number is sm-920p.

    Xda may be a good place to ask as for twrp to not install might mean something is up e.g. Wrong version of odin.

    For stock rom try sammobile or maybe the recovery mode in kies (although Ive always used the former and odin).

    Go to Sammobile and make an accound.
    Al ROMS on Sammobile are 100% legit and original firmware.
    There's a rom section.
    Search for sm-920p. After downloading the rom, download a program called odin.
    Open Odin an load your ROM in the AP tab.
    Put your S6 in download mode and wait until Odin said it's connected.
    Start flashing. Don't disconnect your device while flashing!

    If Odin said done in a green box, you can launch your Galaxy S6 completely stock.
    After Odin, it's adviced to do a factory reset in recovery mode.

    After you have fixed your device, you need to reroot your device if you want to, and redo all your mods.

    I found it on SAMMobile but the "Regular" download box is grayed out.

    You need to make an account.
    A regular account is free.
    Notice that the download speed is way too slow!

    Yeah, I literally don't care about speed, I just need this file and I'm not paying $16 a month just to download one file.

    If you're oem unlocked and you can access download mode you can probably just flash a recovery via fast boot, easy enough to do. Just google for how to but it should be too difficult. You may have to adb in while in download mode to force it to go into bootloader, but shouldn't he too difficult

    I know how to flash the recovery, I just don't have the firmware file to flash.

    Failing that just grab a firmware, if Sam mobile doesn't work just Google your model number and flash it via download mode but again, as long as it turns on, it's fixable

    I've found the files on SAMMobile and XDA but can't access the download from either. SAMMobile is being shitty about free downloads (I don't care about a 15kb/s download speed, just as long as I get the file) and the user on XDA has exceeded their OneDrive download limit.

    There is maintenance at the servers of Sammobile right now.
    My apologies, I wasn't aware of this. Right now, only premium members can download.
    I hope you can try later.

    As soon you're managed to get your firmware, just do what I tell you before.
    Your device can be fixed for sure!

    All the links from Google lead to SAMMobile. If someone with a premium SAMMobile account were to be nice enough to download this file for me that'd be great.

    I don't, I'd like the Nougat ROM. (Also I have a Boost Mobile/Sprint phone so I don't think an SM-920V ROM will work. It's an SM-920P)
