    Start with the basics TCTTOM - did you put the phone into download mode? Do you have the appropriate driver? (I assume you do since you used "oneclick")

    "Oneclick" rooting does not come with CWM if that's what you're implying.

    is there another way to root my phone that comes with cwm i used one click and now im trying to flash with odin however odin is givin me a hard time. this is my first time flashing anything so there is a strong chance i am doing something incorect.

    I have...

    downloaded drivers
    rooted with one click
    downloaded the cmd files and odin
    Unziped them
    put stick.zip on sd card
    shut off phone
    put phone to yellow downloading screen
    opened odin
    pluged in phone (and now odin is recognizing phone again)
    i put the HROARK_SPHM820..ops file in the ops areaand the HROARK_CWMv5_SPH-M820_Odin_1P in the one package area
    I checkmarked the one package
    than i clicked start (with the sd card out of the phone)

    now it starts the process and contines for 15 minutes with next to no progress

    Have you tried re-downloadi ng the cwm package? Your ownload could b corrupt. And Odin is currently the only way to install cwm
