I'm trying to put cwm on my sisters phone and I've tried the one click and the odin ways to install it. For some reason it just reboots and does not install. I've followed the instructions but can't get it to work. Any other ideas?

Default CMW and Root

I'm trying to put cwm on my sisters phone and I've tried the one click, Terminal Emulator and the odin ways to install it. For some reason it just reboots and does not install. I've followed the instructions but can't get it to work. Any other ideas? I think it maybe because the root on her phone is no longer working. The SU app is still there but not being recognized.

You have to use Odin if the version is 2.3.6. The update killed the one click method previously used on 2.3.4. Go here ---> link and you should be fine. Any questions let me know.

Are you familiar with pushing the recovery.img file to the recovery partition through ADB??

EDIT: Also did you make sure her phone had unknown sources checked and under development was her USB debugging checked?? Those would have to be done when using ODIN to flash stuff to the phone at that point...

Hey madroxide, I'm going to put this into the all things root section.. I know it's technically not about rooting but it is the section for CWM things as well and you may find more help there..

As for CWM not installing..

The one click method will only work for 2.3.4 roms

The odin method will work for all versions of the TU, but please make sure you are doing a battery pull after odin puts your phone into a reboot. In all version of 2.3.6 there is a file that will run a script and reinstall stock recovery over that shiny new CWM install you just loaded onto a phone.

So the process is..

1. Odin CWM onto phone.
2. Wait for Odin to reboot phone.
3. Unplug phone and pull battery asap.
4. Put battery back in phone.
5. Turn on phone and boot into CWM before a regular boot.
6. Flash a file to get rid of that annoying script that erases CWM.

What I did is: as soon as I pressed start with odin I took out the battery cause the phone will stay on with just the power cord. Then waited the whole 3-5 minutes that it took odin to fully complete then unplugged it that way there was no chance of script running. Then immediately booted to cwm and flashed a rooted rom.
