VIDEO
Hey i have just made a video and for people who have problem understanding the steps i have uploaded the video and it will help you clearly understand the steps.



2nd METHOD

If the above Method didn't work for you because some people are experiencing problems with the above method for the latest firmware so you can try this method which shall work.

Things Required
1)A Rooted Galaxy Core
2)CWM.zip File(In Second Post)
3)Uni-init APK(In Second Post)
4)A Mind


Let's Begin


1) Download and install BusyBox.
- Open and install BusyBox.
- Done!
2) Copy »Uni-init v1.0.apk« to internal memory and install Universal Init.d.
- Please see HERE the entire instructions.
3) Download and install Android Terminal Emulator.
- Open Terminal and type following commands:
PLEASE TYPE THE COMMANDS CAREFULLY OTHERWISE YOU CAN BRICK YOUR DEVICE
Code:
Select Code
su
cd /storage/sdcard0
sh cwm.sh
- Done!
4) Switch off the Phone completely.
5) Press and hold »Volume up« and »Home«, then press »Power« while "Volume up" and "Home" are held.
- Use »Volume up« and »Volume down« to navigate items and »Power« to select.



3rd Method
First Download Flash_zip from the second post and unzip it in the ADB Folder so the folder where adb files are present you have to unzip there. Now Also Download the recovery.img file from the second post and again place it where the adb files are there.So,The 'flash_image' is within the attached zip file! Use the file within the zip file, NOT the zip file itself.Put the recovery image and the flash_image on the root of your C drive.


Let's Begin
(make sure you're in the command prompt and have changed directory to where the adb file is)

adb push c:\flash_image /sdcard/
adb push c:\recovery.img /sdcard/
adb shell
su
mount -o remount, rw /system
cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin
cd /system/bin
chmod 777 flash_image
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13


IF I HAVE HELPED A THANKS WOULD BE APPRECIATED

If u didn't exceed then you will need to Recover Your Stock Firmware. The only problem is your all data and apps would be deleted so i advise you to take a backup of your all apps by either Titanium Backup Or Through Apps Backup And Restore So that if even any thing goes wrong you will have backup of all your apps. I will make a video guide on how to recover STock Firmware.

HIT THANKS IF I HAVE HELPED

Sir, I've done the procedure and successfully flash the cwm, but when I perform the recovery mode (Power up + Home + Power) a Samsung appears on the screen and displaying a warning logo at the bottom and it just keeps on vibrating
When I release the recovery keys, it'll continue to boot in normal mode. Any idea sir?
