    Firstly, to inter recovery mode, you have to press the Home key button (the middle button) while switching on the mobile (it’s galaxy FIT 5670 not 19000).
    Secondly, I had S5670JPKQ7 firmware (original firmware for middle east) & I followed the instructions. After I reboot system, it hangs on “SAMSUNG” logo ant it repeats it over & over again.
    I tried it on S5670JPKC1 firmware also, but the same happens.
    Finally, I want to know the difference between this article & that one:

  35. This is cyanogenmod 9 or isn’t it..

  36. Sir,
    Please say me… To get the warranty back, I need to install the firmware (ddkt1 2.3.6). That’s all na.. Or some other steps I have to go before changing the firmware.

  37. I read in some articles that rooting the phone deletes all the safety programs, partitions and software loaded by the manufacturers like Samsung and makes the device vulnerable and open for Hackers and those trying to get all the secret information from your device. How far this is true and how to prevent this?

  38. Caution: This update is not recommended for network locked devices.
    what does it mean?

    • phones which work only on single n/w is a n/w locked device! like contract phones!

      • -I didn’t understand what does it mean network locked , Does it mean that i need a “Wireless Network That connects to Internet” cuz when i install the clockworkmod – Recovery … the recovery mode on my S5670 Goes Like when i get my Phone Powered on By Pressing Home button + Power button It views the Samsung Logo and Hang up forever which means there is no recovery on my phone now , and when i press ” Volume + button ” + Home button + Power button my S 5670 leads me to a RAMDUMB mode .

        -And if i Ignored this cwm – recovery step and install the Cyanogen ICS 4.0.3 Mod , after it updates successfully … my phone hangs on Samsung Logo too :(

        PS: Please Don’t Ignore I wanna know why my phone get its cwm – recovery not working :(

  39. i have a samsung galaxy fit with 2.3.4 gingerbread version.i found out about the cyanogen mod 7.0 which was2.3.7 and i installed it.after i installed it my phone hung up and when i enter recovery mode all that comes is cant mount cache and data.can i flash it back to stock version.let me know how to do it.
