Steps for Flashing/Installing ClockworkMod Touch Recovery Image for Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy S3Step 1

Firstly, download Odin3 files to your computer and then install the application after getting it extracted.

Step 2

Now download CWM Touch Recovery Samsung Galaxy S3.img file to your Computer.

NOTE: Convert “.img” file to “.tar.md5” file

Now, it should be noted here that we have .img file in our hand, but since Odin can flash .tar file only, so we have to convert this .img file to a .tar file. For Windows, converting an .img file into .tar file is a very complex procedure, so we have prepared an easy solution, following which you can very easily use your downloaded recovery .img file in Odin. For that you just have to run the following commands on some Linux partition to convert your .img file into .tar.md5 file:

Step 3

After converting this file, switch off your phone to enter into the Download Mode. For this just press the Down Volume button, & Home button simultaneously, and while pressing these buttons press down your Power button at the same time.

Step 4

Now start Odin on your PC and then connect your Samsung Galaxy S3 to it through USB.

Step 5

After the successful connection, wait for a while and then you’ll see an ID:COM box with its COM port id will swap into yellow colour.

Step 6

Now under the Odin’s settings, select the F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot options.

Step 7

Now, after pressing down the PDA key/button, choose the above downloaded CWM Touch Recovery Samsung Galaxy S3.tar file.

Step 8

Now click the Start option for initialising the installation process and then wait for the process to get finish.

Step 9

When process completes, you’ll view a text “PASS” in Green colour.

Step 10

After the completion of this process, you should select the “reboot system now” option to restart your device, and then reboot it in the Normal Mode.

Step 11

After this, you’ll have ClockworkMod recovery installed over your Samsung Galaxy S3.

      A total noob question here as I have ABSOLUTELY no prior exeeripnce in rooting etc.Here’s the situation: I’ve purchased a Galaxy Note 8000 in China(I live here for now) and it seems to have a TONNE of Chinese bloatware. I’m going to follow the steps detailed above and inject the European firmware ( if thats the right term). Hopefully things should go well and should not be a problemMy question is this : will this method remove the Chinese apps ( QQ, Ren Ren etc) which seem to have come with the system and install Google Play etc? Or do I have it all wrong and am SOL and stuck with this?Thanks!!
