I've tried everything on the internet to root my phone and followed the exact procedures – but when I try to install CWM or
.tar files through Odin mode, I seem to always lose my recovery mode:
Pressing volume up + home button then power button won't work to boot to recovery mode. It just displays a very small red exclamation point at the topmost left of the screen and the logo at the center of the screen then it will turn black, then back again at the logo with the (!).
I still can open my phone but can't boot to its recovery mode and still not rooted. Good thing, there is a way to recover my recovery mode by reflashing my Android's stock ROM through Odin mode, which works 100% in reflashing back my recovery mode. I do, still, have to factory reset my phone after reflashing through the newly flash stock ROM.
Now the question is, how can I ever root my phone?
