FAQ's :


Q. I am getting stock recovery instead of CWM touch recovery.Why is that ?
Two reasons : 1. If your firware is updated through KIES the odin cannot reach the block in which the recovery is there.

Solution : Flash any Stock Firmware through Odin and then flash the recovery.

2. Random issue is spotted where the recovery does not flash after the above solution too.

Solution : Uncheck auto-reboot. After Odin says PASS remove battery and re-insert it, Now you can enter CWM !


Q. Why is my download not ending even though md5 is verified?
Solution : If you are using the USB cable which came with the phone please change it , it is damn slow !


Q. COM port is not turning up !!!!!!
Solution : Update your ADB driver or install it properly.


Q. All of the above is correct,then why the hell odin is not flashing the recovery ?
Solution : Try flashing through odin3 v3.07(try googling it for download),then too you can't get it right then the hell demon is in your mobile he'll not let you do this

Hi,

First of all many thanks chotu222.

I have just tested this and I can confirm that it works without any problems !

I have flashed the SuperSU 1.10 zip file as indicated in the tutorial and already installed one app that requires root.

Thank you !

You must be missing something or doing something wrong.

What version of ODIN do you have ? I have used v3.07
Have you enabled the "USB debugging" in android's Developer options ?

Give us more details on the exact procedure/steps that you are doing.

Not sure if I did something wrong, also I had Odin v3.04 I downloaded/used Odin v3.07 afterwards, but that still did not work.

These are the steps I did.

1. I downloaded the ABD drivers
2. Downloaded the recovery from this thread
3. Turned off my device
4. Went to odin mode
5. Connected my usb cable to my mobile
6. The mobile got detected through Odin3
7. I selected CWM through PDA
8. Clicked start
9. Waited till it went succesfull
10. Turned my phone yet again off
11. Tried to go to CWM, but instead I went to Android system recovery

Also dev. options were enabled.

OK, here are some other things that may help with troubleshooting:

- I have the i9105P model (with NFC)
- The drivers installed from KIES tough this should not make any difference.
- The firmware version installed on my phone using ODIN is I9105XXAMB2 downloaded from here: http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I9105P
For the non-NFC version I cannot see a similar firmware version but I see that there is an I9105DDAMB2 version built on 12 Feb

Maybe chotu222 is can tell if the firmware revision on the phone should make any difference.

OHHHH, I'm using I9105PXXAMA2, perhaps it's because of the firmware. Perhaps Chotu might be able to fix this. Thanks.

    To all the poeple still having problem with a disappearing custom recovery, here's what I did to get it to stick, it might also work for you. I used CWM recovery.

    - Follow the recovery install guide until the point where the flashing is complete. Do not restart your phone, but instead go directly to recovery by pressing volume up + home + power, all three at the same time (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=41692376&postcount=90). CWM should start.
    - From CWM recovery, Install SUpdate.zip. Now your phone is rooted.
    - Reboot (via CWM menu). CWM on exit will ask about overwriting flash, just select no.
    - Boot into Android.
    - With a root file explorer, rename the /system/recovery-from-boot.p to /system/recovery-from-boot.p-bak (http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/18932/why-isnt-clockworkmod-recovery-sticking). This prevents the custom recovery being overwritten on each boot of the system.
    - You might have to re-install CWM recovery once more, but it should be permanent now.
