IF YOU ARE FLASH STOCK FIRMWARE WHICH IS UNTOUCHED IT CAN ONLY BE FLASHED USING ODIN OR MOBILE ODIN CANNOT AND I REPEAT CANNOT BE FLASHED USING CWM

If you just want to root use the ExynosAbuse guide.. Just install the app and follow the instructions

Im sorry if that's what it seems like I doing but I not.. Im just trying to tell them how to install CWM get Root and flash Roms.. Earlier this person ask me about fixing lag and i told him about flash a Custom Rom could Fix that.. I was assuming he was having trouble with that process. If its a problem i was delete my simple guide...

No issues was just clarifying bec there are many who are not expert and will try to do that.

If you flash using ODIN you do not need to root

I agree the best method to root is using the exynos exploit patch

First, thank you for this thread. Made the whole process easy.

One thing I've noticed is I cannot mount my external SD in CWM which is a pain with a 16 Gb device. Any ideas why this would be?

Thank you.

Why do you want to mount the ext SD card if you want to do it to take a back up there is an option in the backup and restore which will allow the back to be done on the ext SD card

The problem is I can't get to the SD card in CWM. Right now my only option is to back up to my internal. When I select the option you mention it says it failed to mount.

As well when I flash a ROM it has to be saved in internal for CWM to see it. Since I have such limited memory (16 GB) using the external SD for CWM would be a huge help.

Hope that clarifies it a little.

In recovery for Backups.. by clicking backup and restore the (top options are for the internal sd card) and using the (Bottom options are for the external sd card)..

In recovery for zip files on sd card... by clicking install zip from sdcard the (Top option choose zip from sdcard is for Internal) and the (bottom option choose zip from external sdcard is for the one you put into the tablet)

If this doesn't work something my be wrong with your external sdcard or try installing another version of cwm because mines work.. Im using CWM v6.0.2.3-touch
