Hi everyone,

This is my first post in this forum.

How do you install CWM Recovery 6.0.4.5 on a GT-i9000 running 2.3.6? The best I can do is install 3.0.0.5 and only because it comes with a root. Why do I want to know? Because apparently I need at least 6.0.4.5 to install SuperNexus 4.4.2 KitKat. Please tell me how to get 6.0.4.5 unless it isn't needed. Please also include links to any files I need.


Thanks

Hi Android

Have you managed to get E2 recovery mode on your GT-I9000?

If not then you wont be able to much as it seems E3 recovery is installed by default and you need E2 or you wont get get certian options.

And if you try to update anything you'll get tge stupid E signiture failed message.

To be honest im a noob when it comes to all this and cant get past the E2 thing i softed bricked my phone but managed to do a recovery.

People don't seem to be very chatty on here idk whats up?

On the i9000 recovery can not be flashed separately from the kernel, they belong together. Your way would be to backup EFS as the first thing, then flash step by step CM9, CM10.2 and then you will have CWM 6.0.4.5 and be able to flash your KK rom.

BTW Mackay ICS CM9 2014 is a lot faster and smoother than JB and KK roms for the i9000.
