If you are a Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro (GT-I8552) smartphone user and want to install clockworkmod recovery on your phone or root/unroot your phone just follow this tutorial. Without much any other introduction, let we go directly to the process. But before that don’t forget to follow the given below prerequisites.


Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro Root, Unroot
1.Before trying anything newly on your phone, you must have a backup of your data’s, so that if anything goes wrong you can recover them.

2.Then charge your phone battery fully, otherwise it will get switched off due to low battery.

3.Next enable the USB debugging option in your phone by following the path “Settings > Developer Options > USB debugging”.

4.Download Samsung USB drivers of your device and install the same on  your computer.

Disclaimer : Follow the given below procedure at your own risk. I would not be held responsible for any damage that occur to your device.

1. CWM Recovery:

1.Remember that the Odin flashable file must be in .tar or .tar.md5 format only.

2.First download and extract the Odin v3.07 file from this link. Run it as an administrator.

3.Next switch off your device and connect it to the computer with original USB cable. You should see a blue rectangle with COM:xx and saying it is added.. Now put your Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro (GT-I8552) smartphone in the download mode. To enter into the download mode, you need to press Volume Down button, Home button and Power button simultaneously, when it vibrates release the Power Button but keep pressing left ones.

4.You should have a triangle with an Android janitor while it is saying download. Now press the Volume up button to continue the process.

5.Next go into the PDA section and select your .tar file (CWM Recovery).

6.Do not check any option there (The F.reset time and auto reboot options are checked by default). So, just uncheck the auto reboot option.

7.Next click start button. When it is finished, it will say that “Res OK” in Odin.

8.Once you have seen the message, remove the USB from your phone and remove the battery and put it back and go to recovery mode.

9.To go into the recovery mode, you need to press (Volume Up button, Home button and Power button simultaneously).

That’s it. Now you will be in recovery mode.

NOTE : Don’t click the reboot recovery in advanced option in CWM recovery as it will cause bootloop. Also don’t do factory reset from phone settings. Only do factory reset from CWM recovery and if you got bootloop for any reason just flash CWM recovery again.

2. Rooting Procedure:
1.Go to CWM Recovery (Press Volume Up button, Home button and Power button simultaneously and when it vibrates release Power button but keep pressing the left ones).

2.Next select and apply the update from SD card (select the first option).

3.Then choose or and press yest to apply the update.

4.Now click the Reboot option.

That’s it. Now you have rooted your phone.

3. Unroot:

1.Go to CWM Recovery (Volume Up button, Home button and Power button simultaneously, when it vibrates release Power Button but keep pressing the other ones).

2.Next select the update .zip and apply the update from SD card (select the first option).

3.Then choose and press yes to apply the update.

4.Now click the reboot option.

That’s it now your phone is unrooted.


When you restart your phone, you will get yellow triangle warning. To remove this, just download the “Triangle away” app by chainfire. It will also change the status from official to custom (only in the Odin mode and not in Settings).

    when i press the power button of samsung galaxy grand quattro, it starts with a yellow warning and goes to cwm recovery mode.. what to do? home screen is not displayed

    • Well this means you’re stuck in bootloop and now you need to flash official frimware(stock rom) via odin.

  4. nani obing says:

  5. My home button is not vibrate when m press.what to do my phone model is Samsung galaxy grand quttro

  6. Does this really work?

  7. first should i root the mob with kingoroot or should i CWM first..??

    • Installing CWM is a different process. Root your device first and then install CWM. Once done, you can install any custom ROM made for your device with the help of CWM.

    I am unable to connect to iball dual pendrive to samsung galaxy grand quattro….this pendrive is easily connecting in other mobiles…plzz give me solution asap…:(

  9. Endroyed on XDA says:

    I was able to root my Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro / Win (GT-I8552) following a guide by someone else which is similar to yours. One instruction on early part of the guide I followed is that the device has to be turned off after being connected to the PC and ‘Added’ on Odin. And then the USB has to be unplugged afterwards. After this part is where going into the device’s “Download Mode” comes next.

    Do you know why we really have to turn the device off after being “Added” on Odin, and before entering “Download Mode”?

    Is “not turning off and unplugging the device before going into the Download Mode” the reason why some people following this guide are stuck in the recovery? Sorry for the question but I am just curious why the this guide no longer requires a shutdown and disconnection.

    Thank you, Sathish!
