Hey everybody! Got a little problem. I am trying to i stall CWM via ROM Manager premium on my rooted Galaxy S4 so I can make a nandroid backup.

It downloads fine from RM fine and says it's installed, but when I boot into recovery, I get the "no command" message for like a second then the android stock recovery takes over. Any idea as to what I'm doing wrong? This is really aggravating. I also tried uninstall and reinstall RM but CWM is still there but not booting. I followed all the installation instructions to the letter and it's not working.

Did you read this thread that's stickied to the top of the general section? You can easily soft brick this device doing what you tried to do.

I didn't read that. Thanks for the heads up! Soft bricking is exactly what I am trying to prevent. I just want to make a nandroid backup.

Scroll down in the OP of that thread and you'll see a link to another thread by k1mu called something like "Customizing your Galaxy S4- what's possible and what's not", that will give you info more specific to what you're looking for. Tapatalk won't let me link it for some reason. Good luck
