Hi to all ,

First thing first, Iím still a noob at this.
And I couldn't find any answer, thatís the reason Iím asking it here

Iíve got a question about my phone. I unlocked my phone before the update to 4.2.2 but now im bored with the stock rom and was planning to put a custom rom on it. When the update came out I followed a tut about how to update to 4.2.2, so I have atm no CWM installed.

In HBOOT it says "UNLOCKED" sow my bootloader is unlocked. But I couldn't find on the internet a clear tut how to install CWM :S. Is it possible with my current stock version?

Sorry for the noob questions (still learning).

Kind regards

As long as the bootloader is unlocked, you can install any custom recovery

Just boot to fastboot mode
then fastboot flash the recovery image

command :
fastboot flash recovery nameOrecovery.img
fastboot erase cache

then you can either reboot or select recovery to make your nandroid backup

You won't lose data when installing recovery.
After recovery is installed, make a nandroid backup before you start anything else.

Bed time ... Have fun
