How to Flash a Custom Recovery on the Samsung Galaxy Stellar

Though the ClockworkMod Recovery isn’t available for our beloved Galaxy Stellar, the TWRP Recovery’s there to help us out with our recovery tasks. The said recovery provides almost same features as the CWM Recovery like installing custom ROMs, Mods, etc. Until the CWM becomes available for the device, you can enjoy the TWRP Recovery and to make your job easy, we’ve put together all the steps to install TWRP Recovery on the Galaxy Stellar. Let’s get the ball rolling.

I. Before You Begin:

1. You must have rooted your device before doing this procedure. Please head to our How to Root the Samsung Galaxy Stellar procedure first, finish it, then return to this procedure and continue.

    Providing a link to “How To Flash a Custom ROM on the Samsung” is perhaps a little misleading since it links to the generic loading a custom rom on an android device. There are currently no custom roms available for the Stellar, at least not on your website.

      The custom ROMs pages are regularly updated and whenever a new custom ROM comes out, we add it to the particular ROM page for that device.
