Hello all.

Hopeing i can get some help with my old telus t989d. I recently upgraded to an S5 and am going to give my phone to a friend. problem is that i rooted the device right after i got it and havent touched or updated anything in years. It is still on the very first firmware that it came with Android version: 2.3.5 kernel: 2.6.35.11.

My first question is do i need to update the recovery it is currently running CWM v5.0.2.6 and an extreamly old version of superuser.
Second question is can i do a factory wipe and flash a new ROM like CyanogenMod 11.0 or do i need to update the stock firmware first.

thats all i can think of right now. thanks in advance for any help

Odin flash the 4.1.2 firmware.
Odin flash CWM 6.0.4.4 or newer( or TWRP 2.6.1.0 or newer).
You shouldn't have any problem installing CM11 after you do those things.

Unless your friend is into rooting and what not, I'd definitely give it to him with stock 4.1.2 installed.

Otherwise there will always be some glitches.
