This is Chainfire CWM recovery ported for all GT-I9305.


Steps:

1. Download Odin from this post.

2. Download I9305_CWM_Recovery.tar.md5

3. Unzip Odin to your desktop.

4. Copy the I9305_CWM_Recovery.tar.md5 to the same directory.

5. Boot your SGS in to download mode.
(Power off and then press and hold the power + volume down + home buttons at the same time)

6. Connect your phone to your PC using the cable that came with it.

7. If Kies is running on your pc shut it down.

8. Open the Odin application.
(Make sure your phone is detected, there will be a yellow square in the top left corner.)

9. Choose PDA button and select the I9305_CWM_Recovery.tar.md5.

10. Press start and wait. Your phone will be flashed and reboot when it is finished.
(After Odin finish let the device reboot to android at least one time before applying I9305_CWM_Recovery.tar.md5.)

11. When the phone reboot, power it off again.

12. Put the phone in recovery mode.
(Hold down power, volume up and home when the device is turned off and unplugged.)

13. After that you can flash the Root_SuperSU.1.02-Busybox.1.21.0.zip to be ROOTED to any firmware and make a backup and restore of your firmware, also you can now flash any custom rom / kernel made for GT-I9305.


Mirror's:

DropBox-I9305_CWM_Recovery.tar.md5

Many thank's to Chainfire for the CWM recovery and also to mick.wheelz for the successful test's of my ported recovery.

To reset the counter back to 0 use the TriangleWay from Chainfire.


Workaround for those firmwares have boot-recovery.p in system folder and reflash original recovery after reboot.

1). Copy Root_SuperSU.1.02-Busybox.1.21.0.zip and Remove-boot-recovery.p.zip to your device internal memory card.

2). Boot your device in to download mode.
(Power off and then press and hold the power + volume down + home button at the same time)

3). Flash I9305_CWM_Recovery.tar.md5 with Odin with unchecked the Auto Reboot box.

4). After Odin finish do not turn off or restart the device but try to go in recovery mode.
(Press and hold the power + volume up + home button at the same time)

5). Once in recovery, flash the Root_SuperSU.1.02-Busybox.1.21.0.zip to gain root and Remove-boot-recovery.p.zip to delete the boot-recovery.p file and then reboot.

That is a problem with connection from your phone with the pc.

Check the drivers.
Also make sure your phone is in Download Mode.

BEAUTIFUL This is exactly what I thought 1 root should work for ALL GT-I9305. Great work man

Also got confirmation that there is a firmware out there with working FM radio... The user got the phone from Samsung UK direct which is the White version, He has some sort of sponsorship with them...Atleast we now know that I9305 has the hardware for it And devs can work around it, if its not pre-installed

Sent from my GT-I9305 using XDA Premium




And if you look at sammobile and scroll down to all the OTA you can see all the country that will come out. I have a feeling the UK unbranded is the one we want but its not out yet

I think it will definitely increase the counter. I am not sure whether TriangleAway supports this or not...

Yes works and it does increase the counter. But no doubt Triangle Away will eventually support it if it doesn't already.
