NOTE:
There is a possibility of damaging the Android-system (bricking)
Flashing causes a violation on the warranty policy of Samsung
I will not be responsible if you brick your phone
Sorry for my bad English
Good luck


1. Download and install driver for Samsung Galaxy W from HERE

2. Enable USB Debugging in Setting-Application-Development



3. Connect your phone to PC to make sure that the cable is working

4. Disconnect and unplug your phone

5. Download Odin 4.43 & Ancora.ops & recovery-clockwork-6.0.1.2-ancora.tar.md5

Odin

Ancora.ops

recovery-clockwork-6.0.1.2-ancora.tar.md5

6. Open Odin

- Click on the OPS Button and select the Ancora.ops file

- Mark the options: One Package, Protect OPS, Auto Reboot

- Unmark the option: Reset Time (Sec)

- Then load the md5 (recovery-clockwork-6.0.1.2-ancora.tar.md5) file with the One Package Button

- Put your phone into download mode (turn off your phone first, then hold Volume Down + Home + Power Button for a while, release the power button when you see 'Samsung' and continue pressing the other two buttons)



- Phone will show some screen, continue, then plug in your phone through USB cable (it may look for the latest driver through Windows Update so please enable your computer's Internet connection if possible)



7. Wait for a few minutes (it will reboot by itself after it is done, so, do not panic and do not press anything until the home screen appears)

8. Done

ATTENTION: If you want to flash CWM5, just change the ancora.tar.md5 for CWM6 to the one for CWM5 (download from here ), all the remaining steps will be the same

hi @MyDeSTiNaTe

I think this thread needs Frequently Asked Questions.. (FAQ)

1. Does it needs root?

2.etc..

and better you ask forum moderator (you know juzz -Justin-) to make this thread as a sticky thread

and screenshot



this thread is important isn't it?

Hey dude, really glad to hear from you, I am quite busy for my studies recently, and my English is pretty limited to write a complete FAQ, do you mind to write the FAQ for me when you are free? Just edit it in your previous post. Thanks in advance dude, really hope you can help in it, take care.

UPDATE: I had added some screenshots

@JAZMY

reboot to CWM.. turn off, then turn on by pressing vol up + home + power.. you will see SAMSUNG logo, you can release those buttons..

then use:
- home button : to select
- vol up : up
- vol down : down
- power button : go back

before backup, you can select your backup format, tar or dup.. with tar, you'll get the files larger, but there's only 11 files there.. and faster for copying to pc.. for dup, smaller backup (but if you want to do many backups, if just one backup, of course larger).. but hundreds of folders and files, and of course slower for copying to pc

how to select:
- backup & restore ~> choose backup format ~> tar or dup

then go to:
- backup & restore ~> backup or backup to external sd card..
- wait for progress
- back, reboot system now

if you want to move your backup to your pc, just take the "clockworkmod" folder in sdcard or external sd to your pc.. rar or zip it recommended due file safety, but do not compress to high, better do not compress (compress level = store)..

THIS THREAD IS JUST FOR ASKING ABOUT FLASHING CWM WITH ODIN, NOT ABOUT BACKUP OR ETC..

THIS IS AN OFF TOPIC POST.. WANT TO ASKING, MAKE A NEW THREAD ON GENERAL SECTION, OR ASK IN ASKING THREAD..

SORRY @MYDESTINATE

I HOPE THIS IS THE LAST OFF TOPIC POST

@JAZMY I HAVE ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.. BETTER DON'T REPLY

Correction, Galaxy W Forum moderator has been replaced, it is now being handled by Jotha, Juzz has been promoted to a senior moderator, and this thread do deserve a sticky

How about flashing using adb?
