I was looking for this for a long time and finally found it embeded in a thread here at XDA and thought it would be helpful to have a clean thread.

1) Download correct Clockworkmod (touch or regular as you wish) for your device from http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager

2) Place it at the root of your sdcard and rename it recovery.IMG

3) Download and install terminal emulator from the play store : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roidterm&hl=en

4) Run the terminal and

type: su (press enter)
Then type: dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18 (press enter)

Don't mess up the command or you WILL brick your phone.

5) Enjoy your Clockworkmod.


Note: I don't take any credit for this.

If you mess up the block or partition number you MAY not mess or brick your phone, you will BRICK it for sure

Odin?
Wouldn't it be easier and safer to use the Odin program to load Clockworkmod? Less chance of bricking the phone?

The easiest way I've found is to root the phone via Odin, either with Chainfire's autoroot or Mr. Robinson's root 66. The results are pretty much the same but Chainfire's method won't wipe your phone.

After that install ROM manager from the play store and use that to flash CWM, or install Goo Manager from the play store and use that to flash TWRP.

Good write up and I'm not knocking you, but for noobs its better to use odin. Its a ton safer.

EDIT: I meant Odin, not fastboot. I work with a lot of devices and I forgot about it being a Samsung device. Oops.

rom manager didn't show the att s3 in the list... wasn't able to flash with it.

the problem with using odin is that odin only lets you flash .tar files.... cwm for the att s3 comes as an .img and therefore odin doesn't want to flash it.

i found the easiest way is to root (follow steps in this thread), install MOBILE odin pro (tpb?), and flash the recovery.img through mobile odin pro.
