Default Can't boot into CWM Recovery

Hi everyone,

Since the first day I have rooted my phone I have not been able to boot into CWM Recovery mode. Every time I try the phone simply goes to the regular android recovery. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have flashed stock firmware on my phone and tried re-rooting it twice now and it's the same thing everytime .

As for as my method of rooting, I use Odin and follow this process:
1. Flash desired firmware (eg. PDA: XXKI3| Modem/phone: XXKI3| CSC: OXAKI3)
2. Flash appropriate CF-Root kernel (eg. CF-Root-SGS2_XX_OXA_KI3-42-v4.2-CWM4.zip)
3. Flash the stock kernel to remove yellow triangle (eg. XXKI3 Stock Kernel)

Anyone??

I'm also running into this problem when trying to flash a rom with CWM or do a nandroid backup from Rom Manager (Makes sense cause I can't get to CWM Menu to access the nandroid backup anyway)

Flashing back the stock kernel will remove root. So after doing that you need to flash the zimage from the cfroot kernel. I'm not exactly sure how you do that as i've never removed the triangle.

Have you tried flashing CWM directly?
