After all the problems i had with my Wifi using ics (arco) i decided to downgrade to stock rom but with the new baseband hoping to solve the prblm. I downgraded according to "the-e"'s guide using ODIN but, i didnt flash stock recovery because i thought i would still have CWM recovery.

Now that i want to root, the "Box" comes up when i reboot but it just restarts and doesnt enter recovery mode~ i have no recovery. I tried using ODIN again, but it cant find my phone, it says "please connect phones". Even kies says my phone is incompatible!!?

What do i do?

When using odin you have to put your phone into download mode and then plug it into the pc while opening odin. Do you did that?

I cant enter download mode?! The page comes where i have to press the volume up button but that doesnt bring any reaction. neither does volume down (which is supposed to restart the phone).

If not mistaken, we will lost CWM and it may go back to stock recovery if we flash a stock ROM, by the way did you manage to enter into stock recovery?

If yea just download the Zip-file from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1317394 to get root

Some guides related to CWM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1867870 & http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1924846

Hope it helps

Good luck
