  2. Then, for step number two, you are going to have to move the CWM archive to the root directory of the phone’s memory card. What comes after this, you ask? At the end of the moving process you will have to unplug the phone from the computer.
  3. Step number 3 tells you that it’s best to shut down the phone and restart it into Recovery Mode. For that you must select at the same time the following keys: Volume DOWN, Home and Power. You must keep the buttons pressed about 5 seconds.
  4. For the fourth step, we advise you to enter the handset intoStock Recovery Mode.
  5. Step number five requires you to select Install zip from SDcard while you are in that mode we just mentioned.
  6. The sixth step needs you to select the CWM archive.
  7. Step number 7 will need you to choose that archive and, once the process ends, get back to the Main Menu of the Recovery and opt for Reboot system now. The end.
