    Just wondering the best way to install TWRP on this device. I can't seem to get it to go into recovery mode by pushing the buttons, but I can get there by doing it from an app that I got from googleplay. I checked out TWRP Manager, but was not sure if this was a safe way to do it. Thanks

    The bootloader is locked, so you can't install a custom recovery. Check AT&T, Canadian Bell, Rogers, Telus, Virgin Samsung Galaxy S 4 - XDA Forums to see if there's a Safestrap for that phone. (It works like TWRP, by trapping the boot process and running a modified version of TWRP.)
