I'm trying to Install CyanogenMod on my Samsung Galaxy S III, while using this guide http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_i9300

For that end I need to install a new recovery mode.

Everything seem to work fine, until I'm trying Manually reboot the phone into recovery mode, the newly teamwin recovery( (Flashed with heimdall ), when I try that (holding vol up+powr+home in the download mode after flashing the new recovery mode) it gets me to "downloading do not turn off target" screen. if I reboot and try again the "vol up+powr+home", this time it gets me to the stock rom recovery.

How can I boot to the teamwin recovery after flashing it with heimdall ???

I have GT-I9300 with stock Android 4.3 not rooted!

    Flash again and this time boot directly into recovery. Don't let the OS have a chance to overwrite it.

Problem solved. Full Process to the solution can be found at AndroidForums. Basically, it seems it was a broken download (image file corrupted): I downloaded a fresh image from twrp.me and repeated the installation process, now everything works.

  • Thanks for self-answering the issue – but please, do as beeshyams suggested.
