Disclaimer:





By flashing this recovery you take full responsibility to whatever happens on your device. The developer will NOT be held responsible to whatever happens on your device. Of course, the recovery has been tested but whatever happens on your device will not be held against the developer.







What Is CWM Recovery ?

CWM recovery is a way that enables you to flash a custom rom , customize your rom and can save you from bad situations. To Be fully in control of your android device you need a recovery and this is one of them.
CM Nightlies install with no problems.

How To Install CWM Recovery ?

Only DD method



You need to be rooted before you continue.

1. Copy recovery.img to the root of your internal sdcard and choose either method below

a.Via PC :



Make sure that your device is on usb debugging mode (also ensure you have Samsung adb drivers installed).

Plug your device in your notebook/pc and open Terminal/CMD.

Copy and Paste the Following Commands :

PHP Code:

adb shell

dd
if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p10




make sure that the partition is mmcblk0p10 or you will brick your device !

now you can reboot to recovery (volume up + home +power) or type reboot recovery via Terminal or CMD and enjoy CWM 6.0.4.7







2.On Phone :





First Download Terminal Emulator From the Play Store.

Start Terminal,

Type the Following Commands :

PHP Code:

su (you need root acess for it )

Then

dd
if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p10




make sure that partition is mmcblk0p10 or you will brick your device !(guys with fat fingers stay away, use your pc !)

now you can reboot to recovery (volume up + home +power) or type reboot recovery via Terminal and enjoy CWM 6.0.4.7

Can somebody confirm if restore works fine?

Earlier version was fiving fc after the restore. And you will have to factory reset it.
