Default Installing CWM

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!
Matt

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

Retired:

Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 : AOKP 4.2.1
HTC Touch Pro2 | ROM: Valkyrie 6.5.23115TR2.5

Download md5.tar file and uncheck auto reboot on odin
My Devices: Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) (LTE), Samsung Galaxy Tab S (SM-T805) (LTE) and Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) (Int). Love to all Googy Max kernels and to Philz Touch Recovery. <3

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

I am using Odin 1.85. I still get the seandroid not enforcing error, however I did manage to boot into CWM once after it said the error.
HELP!?

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.
