How to Flash a Custom Recovery on the Samsung Galaxy Fit (GT-S5670)

Installing custom recovery bestows your device with special powers that the stock recovery denies, even if your device is the aging Galaxy Fit.  You can flash custom ROMs (which should bring newer Android versions to your device and other features), make backups for safekeeping and plenty of other things depending on the custom recovery you are installing.  This guide below help you get that custom recovery (ClockworkMod Recovery to be specific) on your Samsung Galaxy Fit and get flashing custom ROMs in no time.

III.  Installing ClockworkMod Recovery on the Galaxy Fit

1.  Power down your device.

2.  Extract the file you downloaded above to a folder on your desktop.  This folder should now contain three files:  Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.42.exe, CWM_rfs.tar, and BENI_v1.0.ops.

5.  From the extracted folder, double-click on Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.42.exe to run the tool.

6.  Tick the One Package checkbox under the Option section.  The One Package button should now become active.

7.  Click on the One Package button, navigate to CWM_rfs.tar location, select it and click on Open to load it on to Odin.

8.  Click on the OPS button, navigate to BENI_v1.0.ops location, select it and click on Open to load it on to Odin.

7.  Hold the Volume Down + Home keys and power on your device to put your device into Download Mode.  Connect your device using a USB cable and Odin should now recognize your device and light up the ID:COM field yellow to signify this.  If not, reinstall the proper drivers and try again.

8.  Click on Start.

Once the device reboots, you should have ClockworkMod Recovery installed on your Galaxy Fit S5670.
