Phone is a SGH-I747M. Was rooted. Tried to put a custom rom on it. Something happened. Now it loads to CWM-Recovery v5.5.0.4. I can't view the files on the SD Card. I have tried mounting the card from the menu. Still nothing. Please help. I think I can save this phone, but I just don't know how.

  • This situation can occur if you accidentally flash recovery to /boot, probably best to return to stock with ODIN/Kies and start over.

    Odin is only used with Download Mode. Put it in Download Mode. Mar 20, 2016 at 18:48

1 Answer 1


Here is the Procedure:

  • Make sure latest Samsung USB drivers are installed on your PC.
  • Download Odin v3.07 on your PC.(Some SAMSUNG devices require Odin v3.04).
  • Download Recovery.tar, download link. This link Provides CWM Recovery.

Follow the Steps:

  1. Run Odin v3.07 on your PC as an administrator.
  2. Switch off your device, go to download mode (volume down + home screen button+ power button), then press volume up to continue and connect to your PC.
  3. When Odin recognize your device, click PDA option(Do not touch any other options) and navigate to the recovery.tar file where you have downloaded it.
  4. Select recovery file and hit START.

The flashing process will complete and Odin will show a PASS button with green background, your device will be rebooted. After flashing the stock recovery file your phone should boot normally without any problem.

Now before you flash a new ROM –

  • Make sure you have enabled USB Debugging on your device
  • Make sure you have latest Samsung USB drivers installed on your PC
  • Wipe cache partition and wipe data/factory reset before you flash a ROM

Above Procedure is Adapted version. Original Work.

And if you want Original Samsung Firmware. Download Kies from Samsung Website which can put Samsung Firmware on your phone. See This.

  • Nicely done, a significantly better answer than your first revision, and probably the correct one. I will upvote it!
