Hi, is there any data loss with this procedure?
Does the CWM Recovery use any space on the device or card after?

Hi There,

It goes all well for these steps..

How to root ?
-Open Odin 3.07.exe
-Put your phone into Download Mod
(Power button-Home button-Volume down button,at same time)
-When you enter in Download Mod, you should get blue box on Odin 3.07
-Uncheck Auto Reboot option
-Go to PDA and find your recovery, then click on OK
-After you checked everything click on Start
-It should take around up to 30-40 seconds
- When its finished take out battery, put it again

but after putting battery back in.. i cant seem to get in CWM it just get stuck on Samsung Galaxy Screen where it shows model of the phone which is GT-I9105P. And after waiting for 5 min it automatically reboots and phone starts normal. And if i try to goto CWM it takes me to stock CWM.



Any help?


Thanks alot in advance.



Ali
