How to install CWM recovery on Samsung Galaxy S4 SCH-I545 [Guide]

Galaxy S4 [1]If you are sick of using the stock ROM that comes with your device, you might be interested in installing CWM recovery on Samsung Galaxy S4 SCH-I545. WIth a custom recovery, we are able to take a factory reset just like we can with a stock recovery, but we can also do much more. One of the most popular tasks to perform with a custom recovery is flashing a custom ROM. The Galaxy S4 has many custom ROMs available; thus you should install CWM recovery on Samsung Galaxy S4 SCH-I545 to take advantage of those ROMs.




  1. Once you know you have root access, open the Google Play Store.
  2. Sign in to your Google account so you can download apps from the Play Store.
  3. Search for the ‘ROM Manager’ app and install it just like you would any other app.
  4. Launch the ROM Manager app.
  5. Choose the ‘Flash ClockworkMod recovery’ option from the main screen.
  6. Select your device from the list of compatible devices. Keep searching if you cannot see it because we know this device is there.
  7. Continue to follow the on-screen commands and agree to flash the CWM recovery on your Galaxy S4 I545.
  8. Reboot the Samsung Galaxy S4 I545 and you can now use the custom recovery.
  9. Booting Android devices to the custom recovery mode — whether it be TWRP recovery, CWM recovery, or Phil touch recovery — is usually as easy as pressing the Volume Down + Power keys together when booting the device from the off position. If that doesn’t work for your device, try pressing the Volume Up + Power keys.
