    It is not booting into CWM or TWRP recovery. It boots into android recovery. Any ideas how to fix?

    So I followed the instructions for TWRP (I’m using safestrap) but afterwards when attempting to boot I get past the initial samsung logo and safestrap boot logo, then my phone vibrates twice and reboots doing the same thing. Is anybody else having this problem?

    I installed this and have been really impressed — I figured there’d be lots of FCs and random reboots, etc., but so far it’s very stable and smooth. NFC doesn’t seem to work, at least on my device — you can tick the box to turn it on, but the payments tab in the settings is disabled, and NFC doesn’t seem to be operational, but that’s no biggie.

    The only real downside I’ve noticed is battery life. It’s significantly worse than my previous ROM (PAC Man), possibly getting 1/3 to 1/2 less time on a charge. That alone is enough that I’m thinking of switching back. Does anyone know of any compatible kernels that might help?
