Custom Recoveries

This is the most recent list of recoveries for the SCH-i535 Verizon galaxy S3. I will be keeping this up to date to make it easier to find the most recent recoveries for our device.

Installation
CWM and TWRP are .img files and are easiest to install from EZ Recovery or Flashify apps from the play store. EZ-Recovery Flashify
Philz is installed by either using odin to flash the .tar.md5 file or by flashing the zip in recovery.
Safestrap is installed through an application.

I don't hold any responsibility of what happens to your phone due to flashing these.

Clockworkmod Recovery
Clockworkmod 6.0.4.3 - 10-21-13
Clockworkmod 6.0.4.5 - 1-1-14

Clockworkmod Touch Recovery
Clockworkmod Touch 6.0.4.3 - 10-21-13
Clockworkmod Touch 6.0.4.5 - 1-1-14

TWRP Recovery
TWRP Recovery 2.6.3.0 - 10-21-13
TWRP Recovery 2.6.3.1 - 11-24-13
TWRP Recovery 2.7.0.0 - 3-08-14

Philz Touch Recovery
Advanced CWM Recovery
Philz Touch Recovery 5 - v. 5.15.0 - CWM 6.0.3.7 - 10-21-13
Philz Touch Recovery 6 - v. 6.15.4 - CWM 6.0.4.7 - 2-13-14

Safestrap Recovery
Only use on VRUCML1 base! Modified TWRP with sdcard partitioning ability for custom roms on locked bootloaders.
Safestrap Recovery - TWRP 2.6.3.1 - 1-10-14

Updating the Update-Binary

If you receive a status 7 error when flashing a zip in recovery, pull the update binary from the latest CM nightly. This should be resolved in Philz Recovery as it automatically works around it, but may throw errors in the latest CWM recovery.

Here's how to replace the file:

Unzip the folder
Navigate to META-INF/com/google/android
Replace the older update-binary with the newer one
rezip

This will allow files to flash on the newer recoveries until all developers update the binary on their own zips, or a fix is in place.

I want to thank @andybones for giving me this idea, and giving me permission to make an updated thread.
I also want to thank all the developers of these great recoveries.

I don't always have time to check and see when these are updated, so if someone could reply to this thread or PM me when there's an update that would be great. I'll provide a link for it and update the thread.

I used flashify to upgrade my recovery from TWRP 2.5.0 to 2.6.3 just fine.

Flashify works fine, I just recommend ez recovery because the interface is very simple and it's made for flashing recoveries only.

It's also made for this specific phone model only and it flashes recoveries more reliably and without any hiccups that I've seen with other recovery apps. I think it's very well made despite it being over a year old.

For some reason when I've used ez recovery, it didn't change my recovery version.

I thought it was me. Mine did the same thing. I don't know if it flashed it or not.

Sometimes it does that, I usually flash from my internal card and that fixes the problem, try moving the file and try again.

You can tell it was successful because it takes a second to flash, if it doesn't work the notification flash successful will come up instantaneously.

It doesn't even show up from the internal SD card when I'm in recovery. I've tried using ez and flashify and both say the same thing but same results. I've even tried downloading it from the website and it won't even download the img file

Some browsers don't download the file properly, I use Chrome and it works. You should be able to move it to your internal SD card, find it by hitting the ellipses next to custom, and flash it.

If you still can't do it, there's a tar file on their website that you can use to ODIN flash.

Prolly just do it that way. Will it erase my ROM and all that or will it be safe? Haven't ever reflashed a recovery after being rooted
