    Hello admin.. wen m moving to clockwork mode by pressing volume + n menu key n power key.. n getting android recovery mode e3.. I need cwm v6.. how to get dis..???

    • Abhijeet

      First un-tick the Auto reboot option from Odin. After the CWM is flashed, exit Odin and remove the battery from your device..wait for 1 min..then simultaneously hold down volume up, Home botton and Power button..

      • imti

        ya its working now.. i installed GENNXT ROM.. supperbbbb its working hea

        • Abhijeet

          Glad to know that…:)

  • Mohamad

    I installed this rom on my i9082l and my cellphone dont make calls. It receive calls, but can’t do calls. What is wrong?

    • Shreyas

      Sometimes there are some bugs present in ROMs.
      Flash the latest release ans check whether it is fixed or you can wait for bug to be fixed.

    • Abhijeet

      You must have wiped the folder that stores your phone’s IMEI(International Mobile EquipmentIdentity) number. Thats the reason you can’t get the network signal. First of all restore your original ROM and then backup a folder named “efs” only after rooting your Android device. For that you just need to copy that folder from the root location of your phone’s internal partition to external sd card through an app like root explorer and re-install the CM10.1 ROM

      • Danilo

        I have the same problem as Mohamed, my i9082l is from brasil i recieve calls but dont do. and i didnt make the backup from the stock. i aint have the stock firmware could you please help me fixing the calls, or how to reset to the stock 4.1.2 and if u have the link. thank you so much.

        • Abhijeet

          Use the app called galaxy toolbox available on google playstore to backup the “efs” folder. So during flashing even if you wipe the data, your IMEI no will remain safe in that folder and you will get the required network signal.
