As I mentioned, the TWRP recovery is currently version 3.0, so you can get the flashable TAR package called twrp-3.0.0-0-herolte.img.tar.

As you know, the file you got is a TAR package in format. Yes, we can install it by using Odin over a windows computer.

While you can get a detailed guide from the above link, there is also a simple installation guide for you, so that you can not jump to another page if you have experience with TAR installation.

Simple Installation Guide

TWRP.Recovery

By the time, the TWRP Recovery has been installed on your Galaxy S7, but this is not all, because your phone won’t in fact boot to system normally. Barring unanticipated circumstances, you will get a prompt information prompting you to allow or reject system modifications, confirm it, then you will get dm-verity, on this you need to root your Galaxy S7 or flash a dm-verity patching file, otherwise you can not normally reboot your Galax S7.

(Options 1) Root Galaxy S7

(Options 2) Flash dm-verity Patching File

At this point, if you just want to normally reboot your Galaxy S7 to system, you should normally only flash a dm-verity patching file, you can get it from here that called no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip.

  • Transfer directly the dm-verity patching ZIP file you downloaded to your Galaxy S7 through MTP without leaving TWRP Recovery mode
  • From TWRP Recovery mode, Install the dm-verity patching ZIP file your transferred
  • Once the installation process is finished, reboot your Galaxy S7 by going to Reboot and System
  • Please wait for the rebooting is fully completed, it takes about 10 minutes, so please be patient and wait
