Not sure if anyone's encountered this or not (could be old news for all I know), but I just recently bought a used SGH-i800, and loaded this ROM onto it. Love the ROM, but everytime I loaded all my apps onto it, allowed Google Play Store to update, etc., I would ALWAYS lose CWM for some reason.
Turns out, if I DON'T UPDATE the SU Binary in SuperUser, CWM remains loaded and accessible. Whenever I update the SU Binary, the icon for the CWM app stays in my app drawer, but the app no longer loads, and I cannot reboot into CWM Recovery, only the stock Android recovery.
I completely stumbled onto this by accident, but I'm happy I discovered this, because it's been driving me crazy for several ROM reinstalls now.....just thought I'd share in case someone else was sharing in my frustrations.
To anyone in the know: I'm taking a wild guess here, but was the behavior I observed occurring because the latest SU Binary is meant for ICS and not GB??
