  1. Thank you so much. It worked on GT-S7562 India. But I find to enter clock-mode recovery procedure, i.e. pressing buttons, critical, and before that removing battery thing. I mastered it by the time now. Its all right. Thank you for your precious help. No other tutorial from anywhere on the internet worked on my phone except this.

    • I think your phone is bricked which means the motherboard or your phone need to be replaced.
      you can try buying a jig and use it to boot to download mode to flash the stock firmware 😀

  10. hii i rotted my s duos and installed cmw recovery but now i want to unroot my galaxy s duos and remove cmw recovery so please please help me soon

  11. I spent a good 2.5 hours trying to brung up CW recovery. Vol-up, home, and power only powers up the phone.

  12. Just confirmed again (tried 10 Cycles). I have CW recovery installed, and I have the triangle during boot. Otherwise my phone is normal.

    Vol-up, home, then power is the same as pressing power alone. My neighbor tried it on his phone (also purchased in Singapore in the last two months), and it behaves the same.

    All the tutorials on the Internet give the same advice a you do but the information must be out of date. Judging from the posts on other sites i am pretty sure something ha changed in the bootloader. I am guessing that models of the Galxy S duos can not be rooted this way.

    If I use Odin to put back the original recovery will the triangle go away? I will take my phone to a professional and pay to get it rooted.

    I have rooted two Samsung Galaxy Note, but cannot root the Duos.

  13. I did some more expiriments. I rooted two other models. Pressing vol up-home, and power brings the phone up in the CW recovery mode as expected. Still cannot do so on the Galaxy S duos.

    Now I cannot connect any phone to Odin. The drivers fail every time. I tried uninstalling Kies and re-installing twice.

  14. Disclaimer:
    I’m not responsible if something went wrong on your phone(Usually nothing goes wrong), you’re doing this on your own responsibility. Rooting your phone will void your warranty so don’t root
    your device unless you know what you are doing.

    EVERY THING EXPLAINED ABOVE IS CORRECT
    even i went thru lot of sites noting worked acc to steps as they have mentioned, but this post made me to root my Samsung gt-s7562 perfect ,

    Note : VOLUME UP + VOLUME DOWN + HOME + POWER = JUST POWER UP AND LEAVE ALL BUTTONS BEFORE SAMSUNG LOGO FLASHES ON SCREEN to get into Clockwork Mod recovery ( HAT SYMBOL APPEARS)
    Suppose
    If the ANDROID GREEN SYMBOL Appears then don’t do anything , just wipe the data of ur phone as shown in screen, press restart on the screen, then switch off ur phone and repeat the STEP 1: ODIN process ( remove the battery just as it start vibrates) i think battery removing process makes perfect to appear ( HAT or ANDROID Symbol) what we need is HAT symbol for this process

    IMP: simple mistake shown in other blogs so only we have encountered problem while rooting
    most of the blogs they have guided POWER BUTTON TO select the file
    &
    HOME BUTTON to return back
    this is where most of the user finding difficulty to root as per the giude

    SWITCH HOME BUTTON TO SELECT FILE & POWER BUTTON TO RETURN

    • I have flashed recovery, removed the battery, heald down vol-up, home, and pressed power 82 times now. The phone only powers up as though I pressed power alone. The trick does work on older phones like the GN. I have verified that it does not work on three recently purchased GS duos.

      The driver on my laptop quit, so I had to switch computers. It still does not work. I will try both vol-up and vol-down tomorrow as I am unable to locate a pro that will root my phone.

  15. I just noted, on another site, that step 2 should read “hold down vol-up, vol-down, home, and then press power. You omitted vol-down. Vol-up, home, and power is te same as just plain power.

    I have been re flashing and repeating your steps since the 14th. I have a flash count of 82 now. I will try what I learned tomorrow at te office.

      • Repeating your post will not make vol-up, home, and power do anything more than power on the phone.

        This whole site is just complied from elsewhere, and reposted. Only the text is reworded a little. All the screen shots are copied. I think the photographs are photoshopped.

  16. Success! At step 2, I held Vol-up, Vol-Down, Home, and pressed power. it worked on the first try. My flash count is now 83, because of bad instructions. I will locate “triangle away” to fix the counter later.

    • Sorry i will add these buttons to the instryctions although i trued these buttons on the Galaxy S duos and worked i will add that now!
      Thanks for reporting..

  17. Hmm, last post did not now.

    I managed to get the drivers work. I succeeded on my 83rd attempt. The difference is I held down vol-up, vol-down, home, then pressed power. I was able to start CW recovery. the instructions say to hold vol-up, home, then press power. That works on older phones I guess, but not the latest Galaxy S Duos. Now my phone is rooted! It only took 83 attempts.

  18. I used This method nearly 12 times but after Intalling it . In Recovery mode every Time It Show Sd card Not Mount .mr Intenal Card Also Show Unable To Mount …backup Also Not Work Aftet Intalling recovery.tar File ..i Removed battery also At Exact Time nearly 12 times But It Is problem In Recovery Mode Again…tell Me How To Solve It

  19. I always get into android recovery mode. I power off my galaxy s duos,press vol. up + home button+ power button and I don’t get into clock work mode in my galaxy s duos

  20. hello sir,
    i am using sduos i am trying to root the above steps using odin.first step is succecfuly done. but second step does not see recovery mode only see a warning symbol.i have lost my waranty.binary count is 3 i am trying to root in 3 times.i cant claim the warranty please sir help me…can you help me root succesfuly or reset binary count.

    • you need to press volume up+volume down+home button+power button. do it simultaneously then after the phone vibrates, let go of all the buttons.

    • and i tired this step “You need to go to “Mounts and Storage” in your recovery ,then choose the option “mount /sdcard”.I hope that Helps. :D” but i did not work

  21. After doing the above procedure in my s duos when i go to recovery mode there I found only following

    Android system recovery

    reboot system now
    apply update from external storage
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    apply update from cache

    and after applying from external storage its shows
    E: failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed

    Not like your screenshots.. Please help…

  22. It worked well. At first, i mistakenly re-started the phone before running CWM and it couldnt complete the installation. So i started all over. It works well, i rooted so i can moe some apps to extCard. It worked.

    Just that i dont like the YELLOW TRIANGLE i see at boot up, its scary 😉
