For those of you that prefer CWM over TWRP, today is your lucky day. CWM Recovery has been officially released for the Tmobile Galaxy Note 2.



Instructions for flashing via mobile Odin:

I'm not responsible if you bork your phone. If you are unsure of what you are doing, simply download and install directly from ROM Manager.

1) Always create a backup
2) Download the recovery of your choice (Touch or Non-Touch)
3) Download and install Mobile Odin from the Google Play Store
4) Rename the recovery imagines to "recovery" without the quotes, and copy to your phone (internal memory or extSDCard)
5) Load up Mobile Odin and grant SU permission and download files as instructed to update for this device.
6) Simply select "Recovery" and browse to the recovery.img file on your phone.
7) Scroll down and select "Flash Firmware"

That's about it.

If you want to flash via terminal use the following command

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
ALL CREDIT GOES TO KOUSH. Check out his site here

CWM Touch v6.0.2.5
CWM non-touch v6.0.2.4

I was hoping for official CWM recovery for our Note II variant and voila, here it is! No more needing to install the GT-N7100 versions!! Hopefully, these bugs get fixed soon.

And that's why you shouldn't "hurry up and be the first one to post" something before even testing it's functionality.

That version of CWM is intended for the international Note II (GT-N7100) and not ours. Even though it works with our phones (running 6.0.1.9), it'd be more preferred to have a recovery that supports our variant version.

Version 6.0.1.5 was for the international but it worked on ours as well and mounted everything correctly.

Not everyone uses CWM. Now you are aware that Koush is building for our device. I appreciate your negative comment...

I was providing useful information.
