  1. I tried flashing CWM through Odin, its not working.
    Thats how recovery looks with provided CWM.

    So i flashed back to default recovery, and only tried to install through default recovery.
    While installing it i got some errors which i could not capture.

    I checked to see if phone was rooted, but its not.
