If you are in Locked bootloader , install CWM Recovery once again and now it should work........

< I Hope u once installed CWM Recovery in Stock rom to Install your custom Rom >

Hey bro one tip: remember CWM mode is in kernel.you need to install a kernel to enter in CWM mode. If you have unlocked bootloader dont need install CWM app. Put on the search bar "how to install kernel"
Press thnks if I help to your mind.

look man :

You are on locked bootloader . also when you flash this Rom you format your System through CWM . so your CWM gone .

Solution . if you don't want to Flash it every time you flash a new Rom Unlock your bootloader and install a custom Kerne like LuPuS or Kappa or any Kernel in Development section

if you will still locked . flash it every time you flash a new Rom

Hope this helped

I have Asylum ROM on my GT-N7000 and i was thinking of using SLIM. do i need to restore my GT-N7000 back to the factory ROM before i can use the SLIM ROM on it?

Thanks
