I have flashed the recovery.tar using odin by following this tutorial http://www.droidiser.com/2012/10/how-to-root-samsung-galaxy-s-duos-install-cwm.html

but after this,when I try to boot into recovery mode by pressing volume up+volume down+home+power key simultaneously,it shows samsung logo followed by cwm recovery icon but then it just goes off and boots up normally.

what am I doing wrong ? please help...

I had to release the buttons just after samsung logo and not after seeing cwm screen


Sometimes you need more tries to go back into recovery. If it does not work, you might have to re-flash the proper .tar file with Odin.


Some of the latest Samsung devices do not boot into recovery on a phone reboot. The device needs to be shut down before. You need to hold Volume Up + Menu Buttons for a few seconds. The power button only triggers the phone startup, do not hold it.
