Installing CWM, Making a Backup and Rooting on the Galaxy R I9103:

All you need is:

Completely Switch off your Galaxy R I9103 (wait for vibration to confirm switch off)
Switch on in Download mode by pressing Vol Down + Home Button + Power button simultaneously
You will see a warning for installing custom firmware, just confirm it by pressing Vol Up and enter in download mode.
Start ODIN software on your PC
Connect your Galaxy R I9103 to your PC via USB cable
Now you should see "Added" in ODIN message box, if not please check and install Samsung USB drivers again.
Click on PDA tab and browse to the ".tar" inside the CWM file
Don`t change any other option in Odin, make sure Re-Partition is not checked
Press start button and you will be done within 2 minutes and Odin will show as Pass.
Now your mobile will reboot automatically
CWM Recovery is installed.

You can remove the yellow triangle by

1) Flashing back to the original Kernel

2) resetting the binary counter using USB Jig (Check Ebay for "USB Jig Samsung Galaxy S2" and Youtube for instructions)

The yellow triangle is just a warning that you have flashed insecure kernel and i see no danger in that.

Can use CheckFUS to download the European firmware. See this thread.

Yes..Use the ODIN and PDA option to flash the firmware..

You mentioned you will sent phone to service.
Your binary counter will not be reset even though you flash the original firmware.

See if you can buy a USB jig. It might be handy for you always to unbrick you device, in case u brick/semi-brick it.

You can also home make USB jig from a spare micro USB cable. See instructions here. But be careful of the terminals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rdn5GoRjhn0

The main function of the Yellow Triangle, is to show to Samsung Service that you did something that violates the warranty.

So Samsung Service can tell you:
"You have to pay to repair this device, you have violated the warranty."

Hi,

I installed the CWM and made a backup of the ROM, but when I try to install the SU file (Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip) I get this error (see attached file).

MD5 Mismatch from both locations; the MD5 I get from the files is "fc462fa0630379edbe10006b1d19d9b1"

Thanks a lot
