    • Viraj SK

      Try this:

      1) Flash CWM through Odin (Un-check Auto Reboot option). Disconnect the phone after getting pass message.
      2) Manually boot the phone (don’t enter into recovery yet).
      3) Download Root Explorer app from Playstore.
      4) Now delete these files (located in /system folder):

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

      P.S: In order to delete these files, you’ll have to mount system as R/W (from Read only).
