Install Touch Clockworkmod Recovery on Galaxy Grand Duos I9082 (CWM)

Samsung released Galaxy Grand Duos earlier this year. And as expected, within a few days it becomes popular among the people due to its eye-catchy features. Since this device is running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, Samsung has decided to upgrade it to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. But as per the sources, it is unlikely to receive Android 5.0 update.

    • Viraj SK

      First of all, root your device. Then follow these steps:

      1) Flash CWM through Odin (Un-check Auto Reboot option)
      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):


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

      Tell me if you need any further assistance…

      Hello Ratish & others have the same problem,
      I had this problem too.SO I did this -as I’m going to say- and it worked: When you lunched Odin, do as just as before but only thing you should change is to omit the “Auto reboot” check box. Then click “start”.When that finished, hold “up volume,Home & power button” then it goes to may help you!
