I installed the following CWM:
forums.techdiscussion.in/showthread.php/1382-How-to-install-ClockWorkMod-Recovery-in-Samsung-Galaxy-Y-S5360-Easiest-Method

and rooted it. Is there anyway I can do both these tasks? I've not installed Cyanogenmod or anything like that

you dont remove cwm

cwm is a recovery and there are two types

1 - tempory cwm - this is a zip file you flash in stock recovery to get to cwm recovery - You need to flash this zip every time you enter stock recovery in order to get to cwm

2 - perminant cwm - you replace your stock kernel with a custom kernel that replaces stock recovery with cwm recovery - therefore you no longer have stock recovery as it has been perminantly replaced by cwm



in order to go back to stock recovery you need to flash a kernel that has stock recovery instead of cwm recovery build in



with the root there are unroot zips - just do a search



to kill two birds with one stone you could just flash stock rom via odin - this will wipe everything from the phone and put it back to day you first switched it on - therefore it will have stock kernel which has stock recovery and it wont be rooted
