    Since there isnt a thread in these subforums on this, I thought I would post a guide here as well. Its a pretty easy install, just follow the directions.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for bricked devices in any way -- Flash At Your Own Risk (as always)!!

    Things you will need (click to download):

    Samsung Drivers
    Odin + OPS file for the R720
    Clockworkmod Recovery Tarball

    Instructions:

    1. Boot you phone to Download mode (turn power off, unplug battery, put battery back in, then hold the camera button (MUVE) at the same time, insert the USB cable into your phone).
    2. Press volume up to confirm download mode when prompted.
    3. Extract "Odin+OPS.zip"
    4. Open Odin
    5. Click the "OPS" button, and select the R720 OPS file (SCHR720.ops)
    6. Then click "PDA" and choose the CWM tar you downloaded (admire-cwm.tar) -- DO NOT EXTRACT IT!!!!
    7. Click Start
    8. Your phone will reboot once the flash is complete.
    9. Then to boot to recovery, hold Volume Down+Back+Power until CWM starts.

    Hope this guide helps.

    I've repeatedly tried this , and the one package method but niether will work for me. ODIN says pass but my phone never reboots. Any thoughts on why this could be? Since I don't have cwm, I'm still on original 2.3.4 rooted and debloated.
