    got the pass message but the phone is not going into CMW recovery mode.
    Tried flashing twice.. tried it with md5 removed also. Doesnt go to CWN recovery mode.

    After the successful writing of NAND it still boots back to android system recovery mode.

    • Abhijit_Guha@admin says

      We haven’t tested it with windows 8 , so not sure if it gonna work or not. But it should, so give a try.

    • Abhijit_Guha@admin says

      There is no specific way to uninstall CWM recovery file once it is installed.
      But you can always replace (permanent) it by installing the Stock Recovery file again ;)

      Yeah.. I am also facing the same problem with my device. I din’t get any error messages while installing CWM with odin. but i couldn’t get the
      CWM while reboot my device. Instead it is showing Android system recovery 3(e). Can any one help please?

      • Partha Deb says

        Are you upgrade your phone 4.1.2 to 4.2.2 ? If so, then download CWM for 4.1.2 and try agian. If you use CWM for 4.2.2 it will give the problem. I faced the same. But using CWM for 4.1.2 the problem solved……. try it….

    • pradeep says

      I’m having the same issue please help. I tried taking off the battery too after odin installation but with same result. please help.

    Hi. I tried to change the file name but still not working, and not sure what to do. I downloaded the file with my linux pc, and it has the ext md5 but when I copied the file to a pc with xp on it this ext is not there, only .tar. Anyway tried it several times again and it’s still not working. Also I downloaded the latest firmware from sammobile, even though I have the latest updates from samsung, I tried to flash the firmware from sammobile but it was a non starter, odin didn’t recognise it. After this I tried downloading all the files again with the xp pc, and the latest odin. Again no md5 ext on the windows pc, ran it all again, and still nothing. Now I’m angry really. It makes me think of the monopoly (not quite so much now) that microsoft have in the computer industry.Who are these people that say we are not supposed to root a cell fone that we own. If it is based on linux why don’t they keep to the principles of linux? I just don’t get it.

        • Abhijit_Guha@admin says

          Hi Pijol, almost all the android device comes with a Stock Recovery pre-installed. So I would say removing S3 CWM recovery is as easy as Grand Duos.

          All you have to do is flash back the stock recovery from ODIN.

    Hi, I followed the guide and didn’t get any error messages when installing cwm but it did not install. In fact I tried it several times, on my friends windows machine. Then I tried it on another friends windows machine and it’s the same. I installed the drivers on the pc. Reboot it, open odin and put the cell into download mode with debuging enabled and plug it in. Got a blue light, run the program and see the blue line slowly move across the screen of the cell. All looks good, no errors but it does not install. After, I reboot the cell into recovery and look for the install from zip but I don’t see this option, in fact all the options are exactly as they were before. Same appearance, everything. One thing that I have noticed though is the writing at the top of the screen that says odin mode, – on your picture here at the top of the screen yours says odin mode with blue writing. On mine the writing is red. I have the updated firmware from sammobile to 4.2.2. The cell was bought in the philippines. Any advice most welcome. Is there another way of rooting it?

    • Abhijit_Guha@admin says

      Once try removing the md5 from the file name, I mean rename it to CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar & flash it.
      Nope there is no other way to root galaxy grand. You have to install cwm recovery then only you can root it.

    After installing the CMW when I tried to find the SuperSU via the CMW menu it said the sd card cant be mounted.
    I have a Sandisk Ultra 64gb sd card
