Angry [HOWTO] Flashing CWRecovery to i9000m & upgrade to ICS AOSP 4.x ROM from any version

Seems like there's little or no love for the i9000m here since I've left this section of the forum.
I'm still getting a lot of PMs by members of this section.
Apparently a lot of people had their questions gone unanswered, so here it is at last.
If you have the i9000m or any of the i9000 variants that have the extra letter, all you need to do is flash a stock i9000 ROM with Odin

...think about it, after all chances are if you want to install CWR, you'll be flashing Custom ROMs that are made for the i9000

so, why do it the hard way when resources for specific models like i9000m or i9000b are so hard to come by, instead do it the easy way use the i9000 resources that are available everywhere

Requirements:
ICS flavour to choose from:
Odin flash back to stock in case sheet! happens
Flashing Root and CWR via Odin:
  • Boot into Download mode (3 buttons salute)
  • run Odin
    choose only these 3 parts
    PIT = 512
    PDA = CODE_I9000XXJVP_CL264642_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.m d5
    CSC = GT-I9000-CSC-MULTI-OXAJVP.tar.md5
  • flash it (Start)
    note: you do not need to change your KG3 modem for Canada
  • wait for it to finish rebooting, and skip all those steps in the 1st time phone wizard
  • reboot back into download mode again
  • close your previous session of Odin
  • run a new session of Odin
  • select PDA
  • select CF-Root-XX_OXA_JVP-v3.7-CWM3RFS.tar
  • flash it (Start)
  • it will reboot again
  • Congratulation! if all went well you should see these in your App drawer screen


  • to make sure it actually works, go into CWManager, and select ClockworkMod
  • select reboot into recovery
  • if all goeswell you should be inside the orange ClockworkMod Recovery v3.0.0.5

Flashing ICS AOSP ROM

if you followed all the above to this point, might as well have fun and load ICS, but first...
  • in CWR make a Nandroid backup of your stock JVP with KG3 modem
  • in CWR select backup and restore
  • select backup in the sub menu, i'll take about a minute or two to complete
  • it will automatically go back to the main menu in CWR when it's done with the backup
  • select mounts and storage
  • select mount USB storage in the sub menu
  • now copy & paste the ICS ROM to your phone, and optionally the Google Apps, face unlock, etc
  • select unmount
  • select +++++Go Back+++++
  • select wipe data/factory reset
  • select wipe cache partition
  • select install zip from sdcard
  • select choose zip from sdcard
    in my case i installed these:
    - ICS_4.0.1_r1-Beta2-i9000.zip (AOSP) or teamhacksung_galaxysmtd-ota-eng.BUILD7.zip ("CM9")
    - gappsv5.1.zip
  • optionally you can also install
    - face-unlockv5-final.zip
    - FuguModICS_GT-I9000_update-Beta2.zip
    - bd-ics-bootanimation-flashable.zip
  • after the flash it will reboot on its own, let it do its ICS magic

Enjoy!

Default Troubleshooting

if your upgrade to ICS fail
do not despair...
just repeat the Odin steps to get back to KG3 stock + CWR
and flash another ICS build

also if you see the dreadful Phone-Warning-PC screen of death

just hold the 3 key salute buttons to go back, with the USB cable plugged in, to go back to Download mode and flash back to KG3 stock

Read the forum rules. Treat all members with courtesy and respect.

Its helpful to specify exact nightly version and avoid saying 'latest' which can be mis-interpreted.

Could you elaborate on what issue you had? Was it the recovery version 3e which was failing the file verification signature check?

Thanks!

I've had a similar issue with ClockworkMod's ROM Manager, see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8#post19867108

I am currently on rooted Stock KG3. How would I get to KG3 stock + CWR, mainly for CWR?

Thanks.

I've spent mega hours trying to understand what is Samsung's Recovery 3e relationship to kernel, whether clockworkMod will install and replace it (considering the signature verification)? And does a flash back-to Stock via Odin return it to 3e?
I've been down the same path. Locking it down is a douchey move. When we try to flash CWM on UGKG3 (I have the same) it does not replace the original recovery. This recovery only works with signed packages which we don't have. You can find a file called recovery in 2 places on your phone. Under / and under /system/sbin. These need to be replaced by one which does not check for signatures. Something similar to what is described here. But our file system is different. I haven't poked around further but I think we can downgrade the entire system to a stock Froyo and the install CWM.
Let's work this out.
