Before you proceed, take a note that CFAR may sometimes prove unstable for Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. This means that after flashing with ODIN, the device may reboot a few times and may also take around 5 minutes to boot. So you may see some inconsistency at first. If the device still doesn’t boot, then something has gone wrong, and you should probably reflash your stock boot.img and recovery.img or simply restore the full stock firmware onto your device.

If you don’t want to use the Odin method, then FlashFire is a new Android application that can flash almost any file on your device right from your Android device without ever connecting to PC. It can flash files like like TWRP, SuperSU, stock firmware, OTA, etc.
