    Any chance of a CWM Recovery for the Galaxy Note II LTE GT-N7105…?



    • Some said this version also work on N7105.

      • Jerzy

        It doesn’t work on the LTE version.

        • Hmm… You can try to consult the person who said it work at XDA Forum.

  • Jerzy

    Find me a link and I will.

    In the meantime, I have paid for the premium version of ROM Manager…and it doesn’t work.

    In fact, not only doesn’t it work, but there is no support for the Note II LTE GT-N7105. Only 3 Recovery files are offered for download and none of them is right for this phone.

    • Link is at the article.

      By the way, ROM Manager does not work on custom CWM like this (only work for official CWM). Can you boot into CWM?

  • Jerzy

    Yes I can.

    Dear Jayce,

    the file i downloaded was option 1 (CWM Recovery (flash via odin ā€“ tar format). but once after i extract the zipped file, i cant found the tar. file , instead a img. file … help please.

    • Hi Teng, use 7-Zip to extract.

  • Kim Jun Hong

    Please I need help. I rooted my phone (Galaxy Note 2 N7105) and not it has no network, unable to detect simcard. I think I messed up my phone’s firmware or baseband. How am I to restore the firmware or baseband?

    Thank you!!

    • Hi Kim, you need to install back N7105 firmware. Hopefully, it can solve your issue.

      • Kim Jun Hong

        Thanks so much for your reply! Sorry to ask. but how do I install back?

        • Install it with Odin.
