Root Working ClockWorkMod v6.0.3.6 for Galaxy Centura


Jun 6, 2013
I have a pretty sweet working ClockWorkMod for the Centura now on my road to a custom ROM. It's version, it's got a whole bunch of features and whatnot. Just boot your device into download mode by powering it on with the volume down button pressed. Plug it into your computer and flash the image using heimdall.

I wrote a more detailed guide to flashing this custom recovery on the github page I created for my ROM project. Here transcribed
How to put your device into Download Mode/Bootloader Mode

The first thing you’ll need to do is put yourself into download mode so you can flash a new recovery image to your device. You can’t do this with adb reboot bootloader, you have to trigger the physical switches to enter Download mode.

  • First, unplug your device and turn it off. Make sure it’s totally shut down before you continue.
  • Press down the volume down button and hold it. Don’t let go until after you’ve completed the next step.’
  • While still holding the volume down button, press the power button and turn the phone on. When the phone vibrates, stop depressing the power button.
  • There will be a screen warning you about the dangers of flashing your device. Think about it then do it anyway. Press volume up to confirm and enter Download Mode.
  • Plug your device into your computer in order to get ready for the next step.
How to flash a recovery using Heimdall

Once you have your device in Download Mode, the next step is the use of heimdall to flash a recovey.img to the device. It’s pretty much just the one step after you get your device into download mode and plug it in.
Windows Command Prompt Instructions:

Consider using Linux Mint Debian Edition.

  • From a Windows Command Prompt, navigate to the directory containing the desired recovery.img.
    dir C:\path\to\recovery
  • and flash the recovery by invoking Heimdall
    heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img
GNU+Linux Terminal Instructions(Should also work for OSX)

  • From a Linux terminal, navigate to the directory containing the desired recovery.img.
    cd /path/to/recovery/
  • and flash the recovery by invoking Heimdall
    heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img

This recovery won't work without a flash image and Heimdall doesn't flash .img's. I already converted the .img to .tar.md5 and successfully flashed it via ODIN but it still boots to stock recovery. Anywho phone is too slow so i just rooted the couple i had and left it at that.
