[Root] Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-i9082 with CWM Installation

Now root galaxy grand Duos GT-i9082 with CWM Recovery installation. Samsung galaxy Grand is a newcomer amidst the prestigious galaxy series. It has come with amazing features as well as awesome hardware configuration. Samsung galaxy Grand has also been voted as the top selling smartphone in 2013 so far.

Recently one of my friends asked me to suggest a good Android phone so that he has to purchase. Within no time, I advised him to grab Galaxy Grand and he is extremely satisfied with the super cool smartphone. Thank God. Since Galaxy Grand is a new phone, I didn’t get any device on my hand to test drive it in order to try with the rooting procedures.

In fact, I may be getting one soon. So, here I explain how you can root and install latest ClockWorkMod along with it. Frankly saying, this method isn’t tested on my behalf but this cannot be wrong. Am I much confident? Yeah, I’m.

The rooting procedure has been invented and explained by a cute guy from XDA developers. So the chance of getting troublesome mode is less.

How to Install ClockWorkMod on Samsung galaxy grand Duos GT-i9082

Well, basically the rooting procedure is divided to 2 steps, installing CWM Recovery and getting rooting access from the installed CWM. So our first concern is to install the CWM Recovery prior to direct rooting.

Here we go. To proceed, you have to download 3 important files now.
1. Download ADB driver file from here

2. Download Recovery from here

3. Download latest Odin 3 from here

Fine. Assuming you’ve successfully downloaded those 3 files. Keep it in the desktop itself for faster access.

It’s time to enter into recovery mode. You may do the following procedure.

Turn off your device and go to odin
mode [ Vol down + power + home
button (simultaneously) ]. Release it when you see the logo. Now Press vol up to confirm.

Got it right? Connect your phone to PC via PC mode.   Now open Odin3 3.04 that you have downloaded.

Install ADB drivers and you might be in the Odin software now.

* Make sure the COM : xx (xx is usb
port number it can be any number.)
*Extract the CWM-touch_i9082_
chotu.tar.zip !

*Now select PDA and browse to where you have extracted CWM touch_i9082_chotu.tar.md5 and
select it.

You may look at this screen shot to confirm

Click Start. Done, you’ve installed CWM Recovery in your Samsung Galaxy Grand without any glitch, haven’t you?

Now as the second part, we’ve to root our device.

How to Root Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT – i9082

Actually, CWM simplified our job. You can now root your device with the following procedure. It looks like installing a custom ROM. Believe me, it’s the simplest procedure.

1. Install Super SU update file from here

2. Switch your phone into Recovery mode by pressing home button + power button + volume down simultaneously.

3. Choose “Install ZIP from SD” by navigating with the volume up and down keys.

3. Scroll down and select UPDATE-SuperSU- v1.05.zip

Hey buddy, where’s the party? You have rooted your device along with ClockWorkMod recovery.

Now install various exciting custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, AOKP etc to boost up your Grand to a “Grand” phone.

Also, you can request here via comments if you need any sort of ROMs. As per requests, I will be posting the ROMs for galaxy Grand then.

Don’t hesitate to ask any doubt/request to me, I’m younger than you and happy to help. :-D

    Hello,
    I have some questions :
    1. Does this actually works?
    2. Are there are any risks?
    3. Can I unroot if it is rooted?
    4. The odin 3 download link is redirecting to s4 rooting page

    Thanks

      Hi Sai, the rooting procedures that I post here are tested under my guidance or I’m witnessed the steps. That’s why I don’t post all rooting guides here, I know it’s easy to publish random posts about rooting even without seeing the phone. But here I keep your trust and you may go for the procedure. Thanks for commenting. Let me know if you’ve any other queries and I will be updating the link shortly. Thanks.

      • Chandan says

        I have installed and tried 5 times and counter also shows 5 count, but when entering recovery not able to find the CWM, I am getting original recovery screen from Android. Odin says passed but CWM is not installed it seems. I have read in different forum people have these problems but not getting the solution, u need to do something for us to resolve this issue. It seems the latest firmware is not letting CWM install. I am sharing few details of my phone, please check and reply soon with solution. The below information is from the section after entering Setting-> About device:

        Model Number – GT-I9082
        Android Version – 4.1.2
        Kernel Version – 3.0.31-1088096
        Build Number – JZ054K.I9082XXAMCD

        WAITING FOR SOLUTION.

          • Chandan says

            not able to find any difference, can u pls guide what you have updated, all links are same.

          • Chandan says

            Now I have by ready other forum, I have used below method, it seems on every restart Android reinstalling their original recovery and overwriting CWM Recovery, to avoid this I have followed below steps ( as per reference with other forum:
            Firstly, you need to copy FixRecovery Zip file and SuperSu file on SD Card, then you follow below steps.

            1. Flash CWM Recovery with Odin ( I have used 3.07) with selecting only option “F. Reset Time”
            2. After finishing the flash operation, do not reboot your phone, instead take out the battery directly from the phone.
            3. Restart the phone in Recovery mode ( Volume UP + Home + Power button ), you will definitely get the CWM Recovery.
            4. Select to install from SD and select the Fix Recovery Zip File you stored and install it, it will remove the action to reinstall original Recovery done on every Reboot.
            5. Go Back, Select to install SD once again and this time choose, Super SU and install.
            6. Reboot your phone and you have successfully rooted and installed CWM Recovery.

            Hope, it will help others.

            I have one point to understand, after installing SuperSu I am not getting SuperSu App icon in App drawer.

  5. praxxs says

    I followed your steps, I am stucked in the final steps where I should choose to install SuperSU from sd card. I can’t see this option in my phone. I’ve the up button to choose custom rom and down button to cancel. When I choose the up button I get nothing except the android logo + Downloading… + Do not turn off target !!

    Can any one please help?

    • says

      Let me know where you actually struck at? Did you complete the whole procedure and missing the Super SU app or haven’t completed the rooting steps?

    • says

      Ya , you can root without CWM recovery. But in order to use custom ROMs and many other tweaks, you must have any recovery like CWM or TWRP.

    Hi Sir, I saw online posts about Cyanogen Mod and its cool features. I have installed CWM-touch_i9082_chotu.tar on my grand through Odon3, but when I choose, install Cyanogen from SD card, it says installation aborted (robot dies) . .please help

    • Sayantan Mahato says

      Try to install the normal version of CWM (rather than touch version) as it will be quite genuine and stable and then try to flash CyanogenMod

      • Mrittunjoy Chowdhury says

        I have tried the normal version (Chotu.tar) as well as philz touch recovery and then chose install from zip, then selected the custom rom, it reboots and gets stuck at samsung logo..

      Hey .. I dont want this crappy build. Kindly tell me how to install Cyanogen Mod11 on my just out of factory brand new I9082 Galaxy Grand. Thanks !!

      • Sayantan Mahato says

        Hi Mrittun,

        To install CyanogenMod, you have to flash the file either through CWM or TWRP. If you don’t like CWM, go through TWRP. Though, CWM is more easy to use.

        Thanks,
