Odin cannot detect your phone...?

1) Do you have the Samsung USB drivers installed?
2) Which version of Odin are you using?
3) Try switching USB ports.
4) Try using another USB cable.

1.Drivers auto install when i plug in the usb cable.
2.I used many odin versions from xda and google
3.I tried at all the usb ports of my pc
4.The usb cable is fine

Any other way to change cmw (downgrade) without odin or pc?

If u have recovery.img file then place it under the /sdcard directory like : /sdcard/recovery.img.

Now goto terminal emulator & type:

su

Quote:

flash_image recoveryonly /sdcard/recovery.img

wait for a while until new line is displayed. Now u should have a new recovery.
Switch off ur phone & press & hold Home & Power buttons together to check if it's installed properly. In case u can't access new recovery, then normally switch on the phone(yes u can still switch it on...) & repeat the above procedure again in terminal emulator & now it will definitely work.
For me it took two tries to get it

Hope this helps...!!
