Thanks for the tutorial buddy! Is it possible you can walk me thru it? Even though I'm kinda lurking here for quite some time, still some things are alien to me. I hate to say this, but, can you spoon-feed me the instructions in doing so? Would really appreciate your help!

Thanks!

Hi.

I just got also a Grand 2 G7106, and does the same thing - chinese menus instead of recovery mode. Found a video on youtube that explained which single item does, and most are only a bunch of tests, and one for factory reset, but still with this same issue.

I also would like to know how to use odin without entering in download mode.

Hey buddy, try using SRS root software if you wanted to root your phone. If you're lucky enough that its not the G7106znuank1 model, then it can be rooted thru it. Otherwise, you'll be stuck like me. lol.. good luck!

looks like i am stuck with you guys too. Have the same Samsung SM-G7106 . I tried using ODIN to install CWM. Despite Odin saying that it is PASS and device rebooted itself, when i try to go into recovery mode (CWM) it goes into default Android recovery mode instead with (write protected) ... i tried TWRP too using ODIN and it is not working. Tried both Odin 3.09 and 3.10

If you're still looking for a way to root your SM-G7106, I managed to do it with the KingoRoot app.

super simple process. It's based on Chainfire.

I should mention this was with: G7106znuank1
