    Hi everyone, I tried to install CWM 6 on my Galaxy S5830L to be able to install a custom ROM. After upgrading to CWM 5 (which worked fine) and then installing v.6, the phone no longer boots into recovery mode; it shows a Samsung screen which fades into white and then turns into a blue screen. I thought about reverting back to factory recovery or somewhere which lets me try again to upgrade to CWM v.6 but I'm new at this and now when trying to flash it from Odin having the phone in download mode, it freezes on "SetupConnection" and fails after a while. I ran out of ideas by now.

    If it were me I'd read up on,"Unbricking"your phone and perhaps use,"Kies" to install a stock rom.Backup your SD card data if you haven't already.
    You could also read up on using an OTG cable,which might help :)

    Personally I'm still on a stock Gingerbread 2.3.6 rooted and my own customizations and even though I have some custom roms I've not yet felt the need to install any of them as I can't see anything they would give me that I don't already have :smokingsomb:

    First of all what you are suggesting is not possible for him because he is unable to use Odin, so flashing a recovery or fresh firmware is not an option.
    Kies does not install roms, it only upgrades stock non-rooted roms and this is if an update is available, and this is if that crap software actually works.

    Personally i hate stock roms, they are slow and look terrible. There is a serious lack of features and customizations with them, although with the xposed framework a lot of those could be solved now but it still doesn't take care of the performance bit. Although if you are comparing battery life then stock is the best.

    On another note, his rom is fine, only the recovery is broken, and he is not the only one with that problem, this is a new recovery and there are a lot of people getting this bluescreen problem. Actually the recovery in itself is working fine, its the screen that is not showing the recovery menu and shows just a blue screen.

    Vargas7, if you use the volume keys then you can try to flash things with this recovery, you just cannot see the menu so you will have to guess the number of key presses and try to flash things.
    Try this->[How to][Guide] Use CWM6 despite the Bluescreen - xda-developers

    Another way is for you to use the cwm manager app and try flashing old recovery through it.

    If none of this helps then try posting in the xda link i gave you before.
    You need to have atleast 10 or 20 posts before you are allowed to post in the developer section, so go and ask/answer some questions in some non-dev threads and get enough posts to be eligible to post your problems in the cwm6 thread. You can post reviews in application threads and easily gain the required posts.
    Look into the reason why odin is not working for you, because the recovery problem should not be interfering with odin, there is some other thing that is troubling you to flash cwm5 via Odin.

    Thanks for the update and I see your point/s.I have no love for,"Kies" either.

    This little tip might help,
    Method 2.
    ***in case if you are unable to boot in download mode then
    Try Volume Down + Volume Up + Power on to boot in download mode
    Or

    1. Remove battery
    2. and press volume up + volume down +power on
    3. now without releasing buttons insert battery
    4. Once you are in download mode you can flash firmware using Odin
