I am new to rooting Android. I tried using Odin 3.10 to root my Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. I successfully flashed CWM (Odin displayed pass message). However when I restart phone in Recovery mode, it shows Android with an error symbol, and then loads the stock Recovery.

I am trying to flash CM12. What's the issue, and how do I fix it because I want to root my phone.

Before you flash the recovery, untick the Auto Reboot option in ODIN. Then flash the recovery. After flashing in done, reboot your device directly to recovery mode from download mode bu pressing Vol up + Power + Home button together. Now you will see the CWM recovery is booted in your device. Now you can reboot normally and your CWM will be installed.

    The question is about CWM, not TWRP. This is the kind of mistake you'll make if you paste your other answers without paying attention.

  • sorry about the mistake. I will be more careful. But my answer is correct. This is the way to install custom recovery in samsung devices when this problem is occurred. Commented Apr 30, 2016 at 13:42
