Hi all, I am having great difficulties installing CWM recovery on my i9507 after I rooted my device with CF AUTO ROOT.

First I used this guide but got stuck with the .dll error when trying to run Heimdall. Even after I installed Visual Studio many times!

Next I tried flashing with Odin but only got a seandroid not enforcing error every time I did. I can still run my phone fine and my Knox warranty has still not been tripped.

I hope someone can help!

Just flash it with Odin and uncheck auto-reboot before flashing.

Ok. Thank you! I will report back here and see what happens. I don't think that I had auto reboot checked though.

That's normal. Everyone has that when something is flashed to the phone.

How come it doesn't work then? It just turns off afterwards.

I just realized that I was holding down the power button as well as the home and volume down for too long. The power button kept turning it off! I feel so stupid!!!!

Does each flash overwrite the last one or will I have like 10 unused recovery files?

seandroid not enforcing error means you have a custom recovery with a stock rom. Not compatable.
