[Q] Problem flashing custom recovery
I have tried different versions of Odin to flash TWRP or CWM recovery, with no luck so far. Although Odin says it successfully flashed custom recovery, the phone still boots into stock recovery.
Here is what Odin said:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> GT-I8190_CWM_184.108.40.206.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/009> Odin v.3 engine (ID:9)..
<ID:0/009> File analysis..
<ID:0/009> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/009> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/009> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/009> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/009> RES OK !!
After this, when I reboot my phone into recovery, I would see stock recovery
displaying the following message:
# MANUAL MODE #
-- Applying Multi-CSC --
Applied the CSC-Code : CNX
Successfully applied multi-CSC.
The background image is a robot lying on the floor with a big exclamation mark.
I repeated flashing for several times, with the same result. I didn't enable any option except "auto-reboot" or "F. reset time".
I tried flashing CM11. But the phone will not boot and stuck at boot animation.
I received this phone today, which I purchased online. It is I8190. I was assured that it is unlocked.
Please help me!
