Yes if the above said options are not there then you need to reinstall CWM as something is wrong also before doing that check you memory card is functional

By default CWM will store on internal memory unless you select external memory card

Default rooting 8013 on stock US JB 4.1.2

I would like to root my 8013 model running the OTA update of JB4.1,2. How do I do this? I tried the easy one you listed, but it failed. So I was going to try the cwm version via rom manager, but there isn't a CWM version for the 8013. Will the one for the 8010 or the 8000 work?
At this point I'm not certain I want to load a custom rom, I just want root! Help.

Usually if it fails it means the file was corrupted.. try redownloading the file..

The option is there just won't work. I will try flashing CWM again in Odin and see if it works after that.

Well. I've just decided to make the leap to CM10.1. (I really REALLY need multiuser) I've flashed Chainfire's auto root, installed Mobile ODIN pro, and SuperSU pro, Triangle Away, I'm in the process of downloading the stock 4.1.2 just in case. I have Titanium Backup Pro so I'm going to do a BU with that. Will the CM10.1 install using Mobile ODIN? I think I'm on the right track (I hope, I hope) Please tell me if I'm missing anything. Thanks for all your great work!

I am not familiar with mobile Odin is never used it but if it supports installation from a zip file then it should BTW Odin will not install CM and hence I do not think it will install using mobile Odin.

Also for CM rom you need to do a wipe before you can upgrade from your existing stock rom so all you apps will go.

I had installed it using cwm installed like a charm the multiuser feature is cool

Why dont you install CWM do a Nandroid back up clean wipe and then install CM

Also do not know what triangleaway will do it will not reset the count until you have the stock recovery and once you install CM the count will increase so you can either install it after you install CM or before you install the stock rom

You ARE quick!!! Guess I'll get with Chainfire to ask some of those questions. Thanks again for your help!

I seem to be having some difficulties flashing any FW to my N8000, running ZCBLL5. I have tried 3 different FW and they all fail, seemingly right at the last step(Radio). I have tried XXCMA1, XXCLL3, and XXBLK2. My main goal is to enable Google apps on the device, as the chinese FW doesn't seem to come with it. Anybody have any idea why this keeps happening? Does odin output any error log? Would i be better off to try heimdall in linux, or does the chinese FW block the install of other? Any help is appreciated
