Hi guys I am having a lot of trouble, I am trying to get ICS on my phone, but I don't have CWM, first I did some stuff with odin, and got a soft brick, luckily I returned to stock and am back. I am root, I tried flashing cwm but it won't stick, and I can't flash the zip in the stock recovery. Is there a way I can flash this with Odin?

You have root? No need to use Odin then. Use Mobile Odin; it's much easier, and it won't trip the flash counter.

Can you link what exactly you are attempting to flash to get cwm.

On the i777 recovery is part of the kernel so to get cwm recovery you should be flashing a kernel with cwm.

I can't use a cwm flashable one because I don't have ics, so I am going to need a tar.

You can use any of these - you just have to use some kind of archive manager and extract the "zimage" file (the zimage is the kernel) from the zip you download from this thread. Put that zimage on your phones sdcard (note there is no file extension on the zimage file) and you can flash that with mobile Odin.

Also I have not read through the op in a while but I think entropy included at least one straight Odin flashable kernel download link, but like I said above you can extract the zimage from any one of his links and that can be flashed in mobile Odin.
