Hello.
I'v trouble for instaling CWM recovery.
That is what i'v try to do:

-Install CWM from Rom manager
Does'nt work. Phone still boot on original recovery mode

-Install 3e modded recovery before install CWM from rom manager
Doesn't work. Can't copy "recovery" to /system/bin. (Using terminal emulator / root browser / file explorer )

-Install CWM with Odin using this trhead:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2578555
Can't progress: Link for download "2013.04.30-CWM-Synthesis-1.2Ghz.zip" forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=25724638 is broken.

Please help :/
I just want to install a custom rom to get android 4.x

Ps: Sorry for my bad english, english isn't my native language.

If you are on gingerbread or lower, download SGS Kernel Flasher free from Play Store. The CWM Synthesis 1.2 Ghz link is working and this is the one I always use! Select flash zip and let it flash for about 20 minutes and that's it! U must have over 80% battery or you're dead
If still not working, try Odin back to stock with root from this link: U must have Samsung drivers installed on PC first.

Then SGS Kernel Flasher+CWM synthesis!

Ah, sorry, i've forgot to update my post.
Yesterday,
I tried ODIN to get CWM and 2.3 GB beside but my infuse get bricked... (Option C, in infuse 4G dev' forum )
In fact, it was stuck on samsung logo while booting, after the flashing
I've tried one-click unbrick, and, curiously, despite the "successfully unbricked" status, my phone get hard bricked.
It don't boot at all. lol

I laughed...
So...Can i send my phone to service center or something like that ? Or, it's dead for ever ? :'o

PS: Sorry for my english, again. I'll try to do my best.

Does flashing CWM synthesis with SGS Kernel Flasher require modded recovery file in sytem/bin. On my rooted (Framaroot) GB2.3.6 UCLB3 Infuse there is no recovery file in system/bin and all other files in this directory are grayed out .Copy recovery file to System/bin fails even though the file system is mounted RW. Thanks. ff I am in the wrong area, apologies.

No! If you're on stock gb with root, sgs kernel flasher from Play Store basically flashes the clockwork mod (cwm) aka gb recovery on your infuse to allow flashing of roms via recovery! So no need for any additional steps if you have a stock gb infuse 4g with root
