  1. Hello androidinfotech. I have a question. After rooting and twrp on Samsung Galaxy A6+ Android 10, does fingerprint and lock screen password work?
    We had a serious issue with android 9. A developer at xda saved us.

    • This version of TWRP works. It will not break security. But it is better to take the complete backup before the first boot.

  2. Hi selva, ” After Getting Added Message Select, AP/PDA Button, Browse for the Firmware file selects it ” browse and find TWRP-A6-Plus-2018-a6plte-a605-Q.tar. Is that right, or should I flash to the default factory?
