Default fix i9001 boot loop after installing cwm or twrp recovery

this is the only thing it worked for me:

Put this file on sdcard
Load it via recovery with "install from sdcard"
it will automatically reboot the phone

once solved, copy to sdcard and restore this stock recovery.img or don't reboot into recovery again, as it will bootloop again:

from within phone, start terminal emulator and type:
su <enter>
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 <enter>

of course, needs root

Should this be no problem when you start installing one of the recoveries made by the adc team?

i installed supposed "stable" twrp 2.2.1 and it produced bootloop into recovery

donīt know if last twrp 2.4.1.0 or cmw 6.0.3.7 for stock roms will solve it but i won't try, i restored stock recovery.img from a backup i made with "online nandroid backup"

bootloop is veeeeeeery common in i9001, the fix above that worked for me erases (fills with zeros) param partition mmcblk0p14, a partition for temporary commands that non-stock recoveries don't erase before rebooting and cause bootloops
