Step 6. Run the ODIN program by double-clicking on it.  For Mac or Linux, you can  use JODIN instead.


Step 7. You should see a box in blue with a random COM number.  If you do not see this, you don’t have S6/S6 Edge Windows drivers installed, download S6/S6 Edge Windows drivers, run the driver program and you should see it.


Step 8. Choose “AP” then select the TWRP TAR file you downloaded earlier.


Step 9. Hit “Start” then IMMEDIATELY hold down the Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together.

Step 11. Choose Reboot->System and if it asks you to disable overwriting of recovery (or something along those lines), say YES.  That will disable your OS from overwriting the TWRP recovery you just installed.
