Samsung Galaxy S Advance Gets its First Custom Recovery

When a device is first rooted, it usually doesn’t take very long for a custom recovery to appear as well. In many cases, root and recovery are released simultaneously. Of course, sometimes it takes a little longer than usual to get something working on a device and thus users may have root but no easy way to install things like custom ROMs, custom kernels, or modifications that could make the device even better. For Samsung Galaxy S Advance owners, after a long, long wait, you now have a custom recovery.

XDA Forum Member diego-ch, along with the help of other developers, has released a kernel that also packs the latest TeamWin Recovery Project recovery on it. As with most Samsung devices, the way to install the kernel is through either Odin or Heimdall. A word of warning: Installing the kernel will increase your flash counter. Aside from having a functional custom recovery, the kernel also adds CIFS support. If you’re a Galaxy S Advance owner and you’ve been looking to flash some easily, check out the original thread.
