    [​IMG] [SPH-L710][CWM ADV.] OFFICIAL PhilZ-Touch Recovery 6.0 [11.24.13]

    Confirmed working for Sprint, VM, and Boost Mobile variants

    Disclaimer: I am not responsible for what you do with your phone. Please flash at your own risk [​IMG]

    I can not take any credit for this, only sharing a GREAT resource that was shared with me. Please be sure to thank @Cnexus for letting me link his SPH-L710 PhilZ OP and of course, @Phil3759, for making such a great recovery.

    For those who have yet to experience PhilZ Touch Recovery, it is a CWM-Advanced Edition that adds all the features you could ever miss in CWM. It is a well proven recovery for many phones

    Main thread + features + install instructions + dev support(Phil3759):

    Install Instructions
    1. Flash using your current recovery and then do a "reboot recovery" to get into Philz Touch!

    I've been using this for a few days now. I'm very impressed. I like it better than TWRP but maybe that's just because I'm used to CWM.

    Smart move JD making this thread! I had to add the specific page for CNexus's post to my bookmarks I've been referencing it so much, and got tired of looking for it every time I needed to include a link.

    FYI, this recovery has been added to the "Working ROMS/MODS/KERNELS/MODEMS/ECT for the Boost S3."

    This thread has also been added with the original post. :)

    This thread is for the d2spr versions of the recovery, and I am not familiar with your phone or ROM. Now that the disclaimer is out there, generally speaking, I would try downloading the zip again, check md5, reboot to recovery, wipe cache, dalvik, and flash again. If that doesn't work, then try a full wipe. But this is not the correct forum for you device, so if it doesn't work, please seek out the forum for your device. Thanks :)

    I couldn't agree more bro. With the huge differences between devices, it is highly recommended to stick to your devices section. Many have ended up with bricked phones by venturing outside of the carrier sections.

    Thankfully Boost and VM are compatible in most areas. I wish I could say that about AT&T but sadly that isn't the case.

    I just wanted to jump in here and say that I have finally decided to go with Philz Recovery and love it.

    Trying to flash the new versions wasn't happening with the version of TWRP I was running. Philz to the rescue! :D

    I'm having problems with Titanium Backup seeing my sd card, and was reading that people reet permissions and it fixed the issue.....is there a way to reset permissions in philz recovery? I checked and could not find any such option.

    philz touch 6.12.8 d2spr is up...

    Also, the "download" link in the Op (this thread) is outdated...

    The XDA thread has not been updated to reflect yet but the updated build is there.

    Just a heads up, there's a new version of Philz out. You'll need it to flash KK roms... Don't forget to keep your recovery up to date! You can find the new version by heading to the main thread in the OP.

    Would that be a reason I got a error message when I rooted my galaxy s3 this past weekend? Everything went without a hitch until it came time to flash the stock ROM and I got a error message and it wouldn't let me flash it. Thankfully I had the cyanogenmod 11 Rom and pa Google apps already on my SD card so I flashed that. As of now though I have no nandroid backup on my SD card because I just went right to a custom Rom lol. I guess I'm asking is there any known issues flashing that stock mk5 Rom?

    It could have been your recovery. What was the error message?

    Yeah, Philz has lots of great features. I use that between every ROM to make sure I start fresh with no conflicts :) But I might mention that was probably post #4 you were looking at bro LOL
