It works! Except for one problem... Whenever I use keys, or flash/backup, it moves with one part goin right and you see it on the other side, before it goes to normal and does it again, a lot of times
And now it does not boot to ROM, keeps rebooting to recovery :(

EDIT: I fixed it. I had to reinstall the firmware with Odin, and BTW my phone is an I8260L, where can I install the recovery safely?

Hard bricks can be "cured" only in some rare cases. Flash TWRP or PhilZ CWM recovery and try entering it. It should work if your key combo is correct.

Having problem with boot loop to recovery since last night. Already apply deloaper using CWM, but the result is different now (i have experience this before). The Galaxy Core won't boot. Just go blank after two short vibrate. Keep trying boot it up by removing battery and boot, now I got two long vibrate, flashing screen (black still), then nothing.

Last thing I tried was using Odin to reinstall CWM. I already did it twice. I can not go to CWM recovery, strange... Now I am stuck at screen showing something with 'GT-i8262.' Leave the phone for some minutes, still at the same screen.

So, I am now both unable to enter recovery mode and stuck at normal boot process.

Any suggestion guys? Any way I can use Odin to reflash stock ROM? (I was using custom ROM, CM 11, I don't remember which one though).

Thanks,

dC

    VIDEO
    Hey i have just made a video and for people who have problem understanding the steps i have uploaded the video and it will help you clearly understand the steps.
    :cool: :cowboy: :fingers-crossed:

    2nd METHOD

    If the above Method didn't work for you because some people are experiencing problems with the above method for the latest firmware so you can try this method which shall work.

    Things Required
    1)A Rooted Galaxy Core
    2)CWM.zip File(In Second Post)
    3)Uni-init APK(In Second Post)
    4)A Mind


    Let's Begin


    1) Download and install BusyBox.
    - Open and install BusyBox.
    - Done!
    2) Copy »Uni-init v1.0.apk« to internal memory and install Universal Init.d.
    - Please see HERE the entire instructions.
    3) Download and install Android Terminal Emulator.
    - Open Terminal and type following commands:
    PLEASE TYPE THE COMMANDS CAREFULLY OTHERWISE YOU CAN BRICK YOUR DEVICE
    Code:
    su
    cd /storage/sdcard0
    sh cwm.sh
    - Done!
    4) Switch off the Phone completely.
    5) Press and hold »Volume up« and »Home«, then press »Power« while "Volume up" and "Home" are held.
    - Use »Volume up« and »Volume down« to navigate items and »Power« to select.



    3rd Method
    First Download Flash_zip from the second post and unzip it in the ADB Folder so the folder where adb files are present you have to unzip there. Now Also Download the recovery.img file from the second post and again place it where the adb files are there.So,The 'flash_image' is within the attached zip file! Use the file within the zip file, NOT the zip file itself.Put the recovery image and the flash_image on the root of your C drive.


    Let's Begin
    (make sure you're in the command prompt and have changed directory to where the adb file is)

    adb push c:\flash_image /sdcard/
    adb push c:\recovery.img /sdcard/
    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount, rw /system
    cp /sdcard/flash_image /system/bin
    cd /system/bin
    chmod 777 flash_image
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13

    Firmware Recover

    Finally! CWM!

    One question sir, what if I didn't succeed just in case how to recover my device? :p
    Thanks

    If u didn't exceed then you will need to Recover Your Stock Firmware. The only problem is your all data and apps would be deleted so i advise you to take a backup of your all apps by either Titanium Backup Or Through Apps Backup And Restore So that if even any thing goes wrong you will have backup of all your apps. I will make a video guide on how to recover STock Firmware.
