I noticed there were parts and fragments of tutorials, but never a fill tutorial. For this phone, so I decided to make one. This tutorial will guide you through the process or rooting your phone, using ODIN for CWM, and Installing a custom ROM. You can also use the STOCK Rom ODIN file to restore if you ever need to take the phone back for warranty issues, or to restore from a softbrick. IF YOU HAVE A BRICKD PHONE, SEE BOTTOM!!!
