    1. is it a box with and android robot?

      Delete
    2. It should display a recovery menu (clockworkmod) instantly after the samsung logo disappear..
      I guess you still not install the clockworkmod recovery..
      If it display a box with and android robot, it is still android recovery not clockworkmod recovery..
      The clockworkmod recovery should look the same like this one..

    3. before connect ur phone with ur PC, you need to put ur phone into download mode.
      To do that,
      first turn off phone.
      second, hold Volume Down + Home + Power Button for a while and release power button as soon as samsung logo appears..
      then, it will give a warning bla2.. just press volume up to continue..
      your phone now in download mode when it shows DOWNLOADING at the screen..
      now you can connect ur phone.
      good luck

    1. you need to hold Volume up + Home + Power Button for a while and release power button as soon as samsung logo appears to get into recovery mod.
      If you still dont install CWM, it means you still have android recovery (default) and to get into recovery mod, follow steps i mention above and if it just blank, touch menu button(beside home button) and the recovery menu should appears

  14. what is CLOCKWORKMOD?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it is a more advance recovery mod for android..
      by default, you get an android recovery mod [default recovery]..
      Clockworkmod is one of more advance recovery mod [better than default android recovery]
      If you want to go to recovery mode:
      Turn off your phone, hold Volume up + Home + Power Button for a while and release power button as soon as samsung logo appears. Press menu to display the list of menu.

    1. pull out your battery for 10min and make sure it's not too hot.
      put your battery back but dont turn on the phone.
      charge your phone until battery is full.
      now, you can install CWM

    1. you want to use method 2 right?
      if using method 2, just put the recovery.img file in internal sd.
      then use android terminal emulator (u can find it in market) to type the code given in the post.
      done.

      Delete
    2. yeah it works man...but i think i didnt tick the usb debugging..what is the worst thing that could happen..??

      btw i want to upgrade my android 2.3.6 to 4.0 using cyanogenMod 9...is it adviceable...have u tried it ??

      r u malay..??

      Delete
    3. You can install CWM without tick usb debugging? I think nothing will happen since you successfully installed cwm.

      Yes. I once tried CM9, camera and some others function didnt work. But if you are a gamer, It's really the rom that you looking for. No lag at all playing HD games on CM9.

      Yes. Im malay

      Delete
    4. i've downloaded all the file needed for the cm9...i want to try it..but if anything goes wrong how do i recover my rom..??
      besides CM9 what is the best custom rom for overall performance..?? i am not really a gamer for the time being so that i can save more battery...!! :D thanks...

      Delete
    5. If you want to restore your previous rom after flash cm9, make sure before you flash cm9, you already make a nandroid backup.
      Enter CWM and go to backup and restore. Make a a backup to external sd. If you want to restore it, just choose restore from external.
      Best rom which can save more battery is Bionic cow V2 (For me).
      Longer battery life better than other custom rom for me.

      Delete
    6. yeah i've noticed about that rom...but i dont really understand all the antuntu, overclock kind of stuff setting..can u teach me how to install and used the rom..?? so far how long does your battery last...??

      Delete
    7. Download Bionic cow V2 and follow the steps in the post.
      It is really easy to flash a custom rom.
      My battery can last for about 2 days. (A few videos and some music. Call and SMS.)

      Delete
    8. thanks for ur help man....i will inform u later whether it works or not....n bangga ada orang melayu macam kau...!! keep it up man...
