  GUIDE: INSTALL CWM RECOVERY ON SAMSUNG GALAXY STAR PRO DUOS

Before you begin with the instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.

  STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.

To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be GT-S7262!

Please know that this page is meant only for Samsung Galaxy Star Pro Duos. Please DO NOT try the procedures given here on any other device of Samsung or any other company. You have been Warned!

  STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.

For help on Backup and Restore, check out our exclusive page on that linked right below.

  STEP 2: INSTALL LATEST DRIVER

You must have proper and working driver installed on your windows computer to be able to successfully flash recovery on your Samsung Galaxy Star Pro Duos.

In case you’re not sure, follow the link below for a definitive guide for installing driver for your Samsung device on your computer.

   STEP 3: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  DOWNLOADS

Download the files given below and transfer it to a separate folder on your computer (just to keep things tidy, that is).

  CWM RECOVERY FILE

DOWNLOAD LINK | File name: recovery.tar (9.23 MB)

  ODIN ZIP FILE

DOWNLOAD LINK | File name: Odin_v3.09.zip (972 KB)

  STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

  Example video: If you haven’t used Odin before to flash a file on your phone before, then we suggest you first watch a video of that to get familiar with the process. The video demonstrates flashing of a Recovery on Galaxy S3, but since the procedure is same, the video will helpClick here to watch the video

Important Note: Backup important files stored on internal SD card of your device, so that in case a situation arises requiring you to do a factory reset after flashing the CWM Recovery, which might delete internal sd card too, your files will remain safe on PC.

  1. Extract/Unzip the Odin zip fileLatest Odin_ v3.09.zip on your computer (using 7-zip free software, preferably) to get the following files:
    • Odin3 v3.09.exe
    • Odin3.ini
  2. Transfer the recovery.tar to the same folder in which you extracted Latest Odin_v3.09.zip (just for your convenience, that is). So, now you’ll have the following files in that folder:
    • Odin3 v3.09.exe
    • Odin3.ini
    • recovery.tar
  3. Disconnect the Galaxy Star Pro Duos from PC if it is connected.
  4. Double-click the Odin3-v3.09.exe file to open Odin.
  5. Boot your Galaxy Star Pro Duos into Download Mode:
    1. Power off your phone first. Wait for 6-7 seconds after display is off.
    2. Press and hold these 3 buttons together until you see Warning! screen: Volume Down + Power + Home.
    3. Press Volume Up now to continue to Download Mode.
  6. Connect your Galaxy Star Pro Duos to PC. Odin window will show an Added!! message in bottom left box. Odin’s screen would look like this:Odin 3.09 - Samsung-Galaxy-Odin-Device-Added-Screenshot
    If you don’t get the Added! message, here are some troubleshooting tips:

    • Make sure you have installed driver for Galaxy Star Pro Duos as said above in ‘Before you begin..’ section.
    • If you have already installed driver, then uninstall them and reinstall back.
    • Connect using a different USB port on your PC.
    • Try a different USB cable. The original cable that came with your phone should work best, if not, try any other cable that’s new and of good quality.
    • Reboot your phone and PC and then try again.
  7. Load the recovery file in .tar.md5 form into Odin as instructed below:
    • Click on the AP button on Odin and select the recovery.tar file (from step 2). Your Odin window should look like the screenshot below:
      samsung-galaxy-star-pro-duos-cwm-recovery-odin-file
  8. Now in the Option section of Odin, make sure that Re-Partition box is unchecked. (Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes remain checked, while all other boxes remain unchecked.)
  9. Double check the above two steps. (Step 7 and Step 8)
  10. Click the Start button to begin flashing, and wait until you see a PASS! message in Odin’s top left box.
  11. When you get PASS! message, your device will restart automatically. You can then disconnect your phone from PC.Odin 3.09 - Samsung-Galaxy-Odin-PASS-screenshot

If you see FAIL message instead of the PASS in Odin’s top left box, that’s a problem. Try this now: disconnect your Galaxy Star Pro Duos from PC, close Odin, remove phone’s battery and put it back inside in 3-4 seconds, open Odin and then repeat from Step 3 of this guide again.

Also, If device is Stuck at setup connection or on any other process, then too, try this: disconnect your Galaxy Star Pro Duos from PC, close Odin, remove phone’s battery and put it back inside in 3-4 seconds, open Odin and then repeat from Step 3 of this guide again.

That’s all. If you need help regarding this, feel free to ask us in comments below.

      RESET is not a problem. It’s a success! Boot into CWM recovery now. Enjoy! To root it now, simply flash the SuperSU file from here: download.chainfire.eu/supersu
      To flash it, download and transfer it to phone, then reboot into CWM recovery and select ‘Install Zip from internal (or external) sdcard’ option to install the SuperSU.

    Guys here is how i rooted just do till odin flash in above steps. But i prefer you guys 1 thing do not select auto reboot option
    when the flash is done (Without auto reboot option selected in odin)
    Just remove your USB attached to your phone (the phone will be still in Download mode)
    Press power Button .. When you have pressed power button (Screen turns off) the very next second when you are holding power button along with that press volume up and home ….
    it takes you to CWM mod ….. 🙂

    That is it…..
