Default How to upgrade recovery on Galaxy player 5.0??

HI,

I have a galaxy player ( YP-G70CW - international ) that has had an Eryigit Rom installed for quite some time but it has never been very stable for me and constantly crashes and freezes! last week i decided enough was enough and i have decided to try some of the newer roms out now but for some reason i cant get anything to install from CWM recovery, i just get install aborted and error messages.

From Reading through the forum i have seen a few times that my ClockworkMod recovery v5.0.2.7 maybe outdated but cant find anyway to upgrade to Clockwork Mod v6.0.4.4 on the YP-G70....

Does this sound like my problem? is there an updated version of clockwork for the GP5.0? can any of the newer roms be installed by Odin? i have no issues installing things from Odin, should i be using Odin to upgrade to something else before i go to a 4.4 rom?


any help anyone can give me would be amazing, thanks in advance guys and girls

The thing that most people don't understand about recovery on the player 5.0 is that unlike a lot of other devices, recovery is in the kernel image. Ipso facto: flash a new kernel, get a new recovery.

If your trying to get to KitKat, I suggest that you install an android 4.3.x ROM first. Make sure to read all of the dev's installation instructions and notes before flashing...
  • Simply because "A" precedes "B" doesn't necessarily mean that "A" caused "B"
  • Let's work the problem people. Let's not make things worse by guessing.
  • I don't care about what anything was DESIGNED to do, I care about what it CAN do.

Thanks very much for the reply, thats great information to have, I thought that would be the case but couldn't find anything in stone if you know what I mean.

anyways, no matter which kernel I install the CWM recovery seems to be the same, which kernel should I be installing, I have rj's custom kernel r14 right now, any suggestions?

Thanks again
