Hi, I've tried searching throughout Google, but I cannot seem to find an easy way to install CM 10.1. Every site has me downloading a ton of zip files, moving them, renaming, extracting, rebooting multiple times, etc.
My phone is rooted with (I believe) an unlocked bootloader. I followed the instructions here () to install CWM, booted into recovery mode, but didn't see anything special regarding CWM. There were a bunch of options, one of which was "Backup," so I'm doing that now. Is there a specific way to be backing up the phone in recovery?
Once this is done, is there a simpler way to install CM 10.1?
Now that the backup is finished, I can say that all it says on top is "Team Win Recovery Project v220.127.116.11" with the time and battery level. Icons are Install, Backup, Mount, Advanced, Wipe, Restore, Settings, and Reboot.
I'm running 4.1.2 - everything is stock right now. Thanks so much!
Hey I did did exactly what you looking to do with installing CyanogenMod after I rooted my gs3.
All you have to do is simply download android 4.2.2 gapps zip to a certain folder that you know (or move it to a folder after you download it) also download the CyanogenMod 10.1 version specific to the Verizon gs3 from here
Then all you have to do is go into TWRP recovery mode and click install and find the two zip files in the folder you had them and then you have done it!
