This recovery is an older port. For a source build version see this thread

UNOFFICIAL CWM 6.0.1.2 non-touch
NOTICE: I am not responsible for your device!

NOTE: This CWM was ported from VZW SGS3

I have successfully ported CWM to our device. It is NOT an official release, nor is it built from source.. I'm still working on that one. BUT, for now, we have this. This has been tested on my device. I've successfully made a backup, wiped everything, and restored. Device is still alive

YOU MUST BE ROOTED!

How to flash:
1. Download CWM 6.0.1.2 to the root of your SD Card -- *old thread*
2. From Terminal emulator or ADB do the following:

From ADB
Code:
adb shell
su
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
reboot recovery
From Terminal
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
reboot recovery
Congratulations! You should now have a functional CWM recovery.

Once you got custom, NEVER accept an OTA!. Verizon released an OTA for the SCH-I705 that makes changes to recovery, boot, and aboot, THIS WILL MOST LIKELY BREAK YOUR ROOT AND UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER! DO NOT ACCEPT!

TO RETURN TO STOCK RECOVERY
Follow the same procedures above, except flash this recovery instead of the CWM recovery.
*Old thread*


Thanks to:
ruben00 - for helping me out with repacking
invisiblek - for his mkbootimg cmdline values, they worked!
Whoever built the GS3 recovery I ported.. Can't remember for the life of me.

Good work. Wish I could test.

Wonder if mobile Odin would work to flash this like on the other gt2 models.

I've been really busy and haven't had a whole lot of time this week. I've also moved most of the work to PMs between a few people.

Yes, using titanium you can freeze SDM.

Green icon with a phone and up arrow. Freeze or uninstall with titanium and verizon won't know what hit em.
