Install ClockworkMod ( CWM ) Recovery On Samsung Galaxy S3 T-Mobile
Monday 25th of June 2012
The Galaxy S3 Tmobile has been released and now you can learn how to successfully install CWM Recovery on it.

Also, for custom ROMs to be installed, you will have to root the device and this means that you’ll lose the warranty, which can be restored only if you flash stock firmware on your phone. Rooting the device and installing CWM Recovery along with a new custom ROM will eventually remove all the bloat files from your phone.This guide will teach you how to install CWM Recovery with help from ODIN application and your Windows computer.

Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-I747 (AT&T): Flashing Ultimatum S3 custom ROM - Android Authority
Tuesday 10th of July 2012
Especially after devs have provided a way to flash ClockworkMod Recovery on and root the Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-I747 (AT&T), users will now be able to enjoy custom ROMs. XDA Developers member howtomen has released what is claimed to be the first-ever custom ROM for the AT&T Galaxy S3. It’s aptly named, too: Ultimatum S3.The said custom ROM is based on stock AT&T firmware and has been deodexed, zipaligned, and pre-rooted. But, that’s not the juicy part: Ultimatum S3 is a debloated ROM, which means that stock Samsung apps that many users consider worthless or useless have been removed. The debloating, as expected, results in smaller ROM size and presumably improves performance on an already top-performing, quad-core dual-core monster.Other ROM features include an advanced reboot menu, scrolling wallpaper, a modified MMS app, modified WaterDrop sound, and no boot sound, among others.Check out the Ultimatum S3 custom ROM on your AT&T Galaxy S3 SGH-I747. Our guide will walk you through its installation.WarningsThe instructions for this guide are intend

Rooting the S3 without a custom recover?
Saturday 14th of September 2013
Is it possible to root the Canadian version of the S3 so that I have the root functions without installing a custom recovery? I heard that if I install custom recovery it will stop all official OTA updates. I need root permissions for few apps, but I like the Samsung stock software. Is there a guide on here or some other site or a movie that explain how to root with Odin3 without the use of custom recovery? Thanks.
Confused on returning Virgin Mobile to stock 4.3
Monday 25th of August 2014
So I got a new S5 (yay!).I'm trying to return my old S3 to stock to give away to a friend. I'm confused by a couple of things:1. The phone is currently stock/rooted with Phil'z Custom Recovery.2. It appears that I need to flash the 4.3 firmware using Odin. However, I'm unable to find VM Firmware for my phone. Will this return the recovery to normal? Where can I find this effin' firmware? I've found links for Verizon, Sprint, but not VM.3. Will flashing that via Odin fix Phil'z Custom Recovery? And then I can take the OTA update?I haven't flashed any ROMs. Is there a faster way I could be doing this? I'm basically trying to get the phone to the point at which he can change the number on it.
Won't boot into Recovery
Thursday 04th of September 2014
Since my warranty is about to expire I rooted my Note 3 all fine went trough flashing process like a champ but to flash custom ROM I need custom recovery which I tried to flash using Rom Toolbox which hasn't failed me before used it with S3 and LG Esteem, I used it to flash TWRP Recovery and it went trough but after Reboot into Recovery only STOCK one would boot so I tried again, same thing. Then I tried for the third time but for this attempt I used CWM Touch Recovery....aaaand boned now the phone won't go into Recovery saying:Recovery Booting (In blue font)Recovery is not seandroid enforcing (Red Font)Then the phone reboots and shows the same thing being stuck in boot loop, Download Mode (Odin) and Normal boot works fine, I tried flashing it again as well as TWRP again but nothing helps, whatever I do any attempts to boot into Recovery ends up in the cryptic error and bootloops. Should I flash back to stock or should I use Odin to flash TWRP? Is it kernel related?
