    so, i have the SGII, GC01, Rooted, with the agat kernel...

    what i wanted to do was, install CWM to in stall a custom ROM, which was said that CWM is needed.

    i try to flash CWM (many versions i chose EPIC 4G TOUCH)
    i takes it, but reboots and its gone...

    is there another kernel i can odin over that has CWM or TWRP with it?

    IMO the cwm kernel for gc01 agats1.40 is a bad cookie, reason why is because when ever i type on the keyboard or use for vary long extended times it causes a huge lag and the vibratior just goes haywire. It does this everytime. Even listening to music. I'm on gc01 deblaoted and deoxdex it doesn't matter what mods i have installed it still causes this. Though this has nothing to do with your question i just thought i post this for any other poor soul to know before they flash the kernel

    You can't just install another recovery on this phone. The recovery is tied to the kernel. Follow the instructions that are in the thread post for the ROM you wish to install. if it states to use something like el26 or el29 then you need to flash that kernel and boot into its recovery.

    As for kernels for TW JB, I chose to stick with the kernel from Garwynn. It has shone to be quite stable and it is easy enough to enable init.d support if needed.

    Flash Cm10.1 on there, it comes with CWM, you can replace it with TWRP if you feel like it.

    Download Mobile Odin Lite from the Play Store or XDA. Download Agat's v1.3 (stable version, get the .tar file)-here. Flash with Mobile Odin. It will reboot and you'll have a custom recovery.

    Agat's v1.4 is still being ironed out with test versions, he no longer has the device. Use v1.3 it is stable and allows for under/overclocking and undervolting. Best kernel for TouchWiz IMO. Garwynn's is good too, they worked on the source together.

    thanks for the suggestion, but im on gc01 i hate going back...
    from stock to rooted kernel w/recovery i used SXTP_Agat_GC01-v0.5.0.tar

    its stable...only issue is 4g areas, theres no 4g and it trys to get back 3g but brainfarts and reboots

    i get excellent speeds on 3g and boost's on 4g

    i dont much like the AGAT recovery, but the kernel is stable for me
    (i just popped a small marble sized zit on back of ear...ive been growing it for weeks,have to go clean it now)

    0.4.1 of the Garwynn one has CWM if you prefer that.

    am i blind...i googled that kernel...i see mention of differences..but no actual page about it...or a link to download it

    i did see it was used in a GB27..

    is this Garwynn one GC01 ?

    i found what your talking about, i think,

    but thats what i used. so the GC01 must be agat recovery, the older one GB27 must be with CWM

    now time to watch world war Z

    You do know that GC01 is just the boost labeled version of the same ROM GB27 is. The kernels can be used on each other. Except for labeling (in the kernel info under about device) the kernels are the same. Here is the link. Look carefully on the link you will see the link to the previous versions of the kernel he did for GC01.

    To make things clear for you the GB27, GC01 etc is the build number to identify ROM type it is meant to go with (ie TW JB or TW ICS etc), and is not the version number for the kernel.
