Downloaded the CWM. Install it where with what instructions? There are NO instructions anywhere.
COMPLETELY lost here.
And is the phone to be plugged in at all times etc etc?
I think I maybe in over my head here. I am notan idiot with this stuff but this is either to vague or I just dont get it at all and I am better off leaving well enough alone. Someone should make a video. I will donate!
This is right off the OP how to use ODIN
- ODIN INSTRUCTIONS -
- Samsung drivers must be installed on your computer- Samsung Drivers- http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ow...SGH-S959ZKATFN
-Download Odin 1.85- Odin3-v1.85.7z and unzip.
-Put your phone in Download Mode - -Power off, Hold volume down button, Plug in USB connected to computer, Hit volume up when prompted.
-Open Odin folder, Click Odin3 v1.85.exe, With your phone connected the box under ID:COM should be yellow (if it's not you missed a step earlier), Click PDA, Select the file you downloaded earlier, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE- MAKE SURE AUTO REBOOT AND F. RESET TIME ARE THE ----ONLY----- THINGS CHECKED----- AND RE-PARTITION AND FLASH LOCK ARE ----NOT---- CHECKED....., Press Start (It will take a few minutes to load everything do not touch your computer or the phone during any of this, after the phone re-boots it may take a few minutes to load back up leave it alone until it has fully started up and at the home screen). You should get a green PASS message in the top box.
As for your zip file you dont unzip it and it goes on the root of your sd card which means directly on there dont make a new folder or put it in another folder on there just put it on the sd card.
As for being in over your head if you feel its too much to take in right now its probably best to read up on it more and maybe watch some videos on youtube to learn some more before you proceed.
