    So, I own 2 devices with custom ROMs all flashed onto them. (One is running Android 4.4.2 and another is runing 5.0.2)

    So, I decided to take an old GT-i9100G and attempt to flash Android 5.0 onto it.

    Unfortunately, the CWM recovery that was installed was unstable, and would result in a reboot back into the ROM. I attempted to flash another recovery with Odin, but that bricked the phone on startup. I reflashed another kernel and it booted up fine, but restarts randomly, making it unusable for more than a few minutes.

    So, I've downloaded the stock firmware from SamMobile, and tried flashing it, but for some reason, Odin flat out refuses to detect the phone. Even if it's in normal or download mode. I tried the Samsung USB cable and even the one that came with my LG G3. No dice. USB debugging is enabled too.

    Any help is much appreciated. I really want to bring this phone up to date as it's the first Android phone I've ever used and it holds a special place in my heart.

    Yep. I installed a custom ROM on an S3 GT-i9300 not too long ago.
