Hi,

I had CWM 5.0.2.6 and CM 10.2 installed.

I thought I could upgrade CWM to v6 for future kitkat builds, but now and followed the "How to Get it" instructions.

But now both is not working, I can not reach the recovery and CM is also not booting, every time after the Samsung boot logo comes a blue screen.

Hope someone can help me :/

I tried to go back with odin with this tutorial from androidforums (guide-how-unbrick-upgrade-downgrade-your-sga-gt-s5830), but it seems that some driver is missing. I installed kies before, so the driver should be installed.

EDIT:
kies reinstall worked, passed flashing, but now it ends in a boot loop.

ok, data and cache wipe worked
my modifications are gone, but I am happy that the phone is booting again

Info 2 Same here...
This same thing happened to my old ace when installing a Galaxy s3 rom based of CM 10.2! I could boot in to CWM fortunately, and flashed another working rom. Just be careful, when the bluescreen thing happens the screen on mine also went red. I was very, very scared. And somewhat felt unsafe using ODIN. I mean red is a dangerous color, right?

Also i managed to get the rom working. It needed a EXT4... lol. Maybe what happened to you? Dunno. Stay away from an error you have fixed.

I do not know that the red color means, maybe someone else?

On my side the blue screen appears after flashing another CWM version and not another rom, my CM10.2 worked with CWM 5.0.2.6 fine.

It is a great rom. It offers awesome performance, battery and sound quality. Wait untill you try it... NO more things on your to do list!

The best part is it's swap kernel. The ace is far to slow, no thanks to the 280MB ram, so swap helps. Also their is alot of optimizations for our adreno 200 and single core cpu tweaks work amazing! Put it on top of your to do list man!

CWM works despite the bluescreen. Follow this guide to flash roms:

But always remember - swap is destroying your micro SD card.

True, but i try and set it at only use 20-30% of the time. And that's is true, i have seen a massive degree drop in it's performance. Luckily enough i recently got the new nexus 7
