  • When I hold down the Volume down + Power button together, I can see the Samsung logo and the phone vibrate but after that the phone just goes black. I keep holding for another minute but nothing happen.

  • Also when I try to download the CWM Recovery.tar file, it is actually the “Express-OUDHS-CWM.exe”, so it is wrong file. Not able to open it in the Odin. Any help please . Thanks much.

    • The “.exe” file can not be seen in the Odin. Only these extensions can be seen: “.tar,.md5, smd, .gz, tgz”. Please look again. Thanks much.

    • Yes, bro you are right odin supports only .tar.md5 files but this Odin is automated, You just need to connect your device in download mode and Open Odin, then Just click Start,, you don’t need to choose a file or something else. When you opened Odin, connect your device click Start..

      Hope you got it. (h)

  • THANK YOU!!! i didnt think it was gonna be that simple. I used to use TWRP but its UI wont work with my EXT4 format 64gb card, and nobobdy made a CWM recovery for this phone. also ODIN 3.7 was easy as long as you unclick the auto reset box, and find a download for the hard to find .TAR M5D…1 year later i decide to check up and BAM. THANK YOU.
