---------------------Warning!-----------------------------------------

This CWM recovery is for SGS4A (int'l) ONLY. Does not work on SGS4 from AT&T as it has a locked bootloader.
Please refer to this thread for a bounty on the bootloader.


---------------------Instructions for flash with ODIN---------

  1. Download ODIN 3.09 from here.
  2. Download CWM recovery from here.
  3. Extract the zip so you have the file CWM-Recovery-gt-i9295_v1-2.tar.md5.
  4. Restart your phone while holding the Volume Down button as the phone is booting.
  5. Press the Volume Up button to continue past the warning.
  6. With the phone attached to your computer open ODIN and press AP.
  7. Choose CWM-Recovery-gt-i9295_v1-2.tar.md5 and press start.
  8. Reboot system

If you already have another version of CWM recovery installed, you can alternatively download CWM-Recovery-gt-i9295_v1-2_zipFLASH.zip and flash it through CWM recovery.

As always, I take no responsibility in case your phone blows up.

When im right, and you had a custom recovery from chainfires Auto-Root, you can flash my flashable zip. It makes it mouch easier. I cant test it, but i mean it sould work.

I'm sorry,but I'm not sure what you're saying... What zip? What is easier?

EDIT: Ah, now I think I get your post. You might be able to flash with the twrp manager, but the twrp recovery UI itself doesn't work, which is why we need to flash cwm in the first place.

I think this is a recovery. I made flashable Zip of yours/this. So you can flash it through the recovery which you get from auto root. Or did the recovery from auto root doesnt work? If not, forget what i post.

CF-Auto-Root included not an Custom Recovery for installing ZIPs or so.

You can make a tar for flashing over Odin!? But not with a ZIP .... if the CWM works... you can flash newer version over the cwm!

I have made on tar for flashing over Odin... untested!!! I wait for my deveice so i can not test it!

Its the Recovery from Thread Opener!


@LeJay from where you got this Recovery?






Unpack the ZIP once.. then but it in Odin to PDA and flash it!

MPORTANT: Flash this file at your own risk. I or the XDA assume NO responsibility for any failed flashes or bricked phones.

Compiled it myself. Kernel is the prebuilt from stock. It's a bit hackish, but it does the job while I try to get CM running.
