Install CWM Recovery 6 on T-Mobile Galaxy S5 G900T – Complete Guide

How to Make ClockworkMod Recovery Permanent on Galaxy S5 G900T

There is an auto recovery restore system built into stock firmwares so that after playing around with a custom recovery, you get back to stock recovery and never lose that access. However, for those who want to get rid of this, can follow the easy steps below.

Your phone has to be already rooted to perform this. Simply rename or delete the following files from /system directory. These files overwrite the CWM recovery with the stock one.

/system/recovery-from-boot.p
/system/etc/install-recovery.sh

  • When I boot my phone into Download, the steps you have above does not show the construction Android robot and a triangle. I get “Warning!!, A custom OS can cause critical problems in phone and installed applications. If you want to download a custom OS, press the volume up key. Otherwise, press the volume down key to cancel.” When I press the up I get a green Droid with the word “Downloading”. Then I open ODIN, plug in my phone and only get a blue bar, it never turns yellow…
    ANY IDEAS???

  • I’m attempting to do the same thing. After booting my phone into download, it’s giving me the dummy warning. It tells me my phone’s in ODIN mode, however, ODIN on my pc never registers as “yellow” it shows it as blue, in fact. I’ve tried to still flash cwm onto my phone in this state, and it’s showing as an ‘invalid binary’. Any help would be appreciated
