End of support. Thread closed.

If you get stuck in recovery and can't boot into Android, you need to install the stock recovery to get Android to boot.

Stock recovery flashable zip located HERE.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



READ THIS POST BEFORE INSTALLING ANY CUSTOM RECOVERY


CWM Recovery 6.0.4.8
(TWRP is in post 3, Philz Touch in post 4)

Click HERE for the latest version.

Please report any bugs here in this thread.

Thank you to everyone who has (and still will) help in testing!!!!

Credits go to:
@Unjustified Dev for device and kernel source trees
and of course Koush and the CyanogenMod team


Watch THIS VIDEO tutorial for a step by step visual guide for performing the instructions listed below (thanks @Tomsgt for the video).

Instructions:
1. Download ODIN on your computer.
2. Power off the device.
3. Restart in "Download Mode" by holding the "HOME" button, "Volume Down" and "Power" all at the same time (for about 5 seconds).
4. Hit the "Volume Up" to enter download mode.
5. Start the ODIN exe program. Un-check Auto Reboot. See notes about ODIN below.
6. Connect the device via USB to your computer. Verify the device shows as "Added" in the Message box. If it doesn't show then you need the Samsung USB drivers (just install KIES to get them). Also need to enable USB debugging.
7. Select "PDA" (or AP) then choose the recovery file you want to flash. (Unzip the file you downloaded so that you have a file named "recovery.tar.md5".)
8. Hit "START". Wait for Odin to finish (~10-15 seconds). The message area will display "RES OK" when finished.
9. Restart directly to recovery mode before rebooting into OS.(Hold POWER, Volume UP, and the HOME button all at the same time. When you see the Samsung Logo, let go of the POWER button, but keep holding the Volume UP and HOME until you see the recovery screen).

Notes about ODIN
--Make sure that "Re-Partition" is NOT checked.
--Auto Reboot can be un-checked if CWM doesn't flash correctly on your device. Some have reported that un-checking Auto Reboot fixes this issue. If you un-check Auto Reboot, you will need to reboot the device yourself (refer back to step 9).

After you get the custom recovery working, you can flash the latest SuperSu zip to get root.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Watch this video to learn about the navigation issues and Rainbow Mode: http://youtu.be/iCNdxlNzdBI

If the highlight doesn't move on the recovery menu, the selection actually does change. Go ahead and hit Power to select. If the menu goes blank, just hit Volume Up or Down to get it to reappear.

It appears that the menu navigation issue only happens when you use the button combination to boot into recovery. If you use the Quick Boot app or "adb reboot recovery", it seems to work properly. Only use the 3-button method to boot into recovery.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Flash at own risk!!!!

TWRP is reported to be causing problems for now. Please use CWM or Philz Touch (post 4) for now.

TWRP 2.7.0.1 (unofficial)

Click HERE to download the latest version.

I do not have a T110, so this recovery has not been tested by me. Please report if it works for you.

Same install instructions as above.

After installation, you may experience slow behavior in recovery if you use the button combination to boot into recovery. Using Quick Boot from the play store or any other software method to boot into recovery will solve this problem.

Internal card gets mounted as "/data/media/0".

Please report any issues here in this thread and be sure to include which recovery you are using.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If you already have root, you can extract the recovery.img from this zip and flash it without Odin by using Flashify from the Play Store.

Security is something else. Not software update.
It is a new protection from samsung, generaly with knox from 4.2.2 software and newer!
