This recovery is for the AT&T SGH-I437 ONLY! It is NOT for the GT-I8730! Just because Samsung named them both “Express” does not mean they have identical internal hardware!
Some models are compatible, however, like the SGH-I437P.


Downloads

Note: the ODIN-flashable package was not tested; use the flashable image (instructions on how to flash it can be found here). If it’s working for you, please let me know. Thank you.

If direct links don’t work, you can find downloads here.

Note: avoid using the “file system change” feature. Recovery might not boot if you do. I’m currently troubleshooting this issue. Also, it does not detect encrypted /data partition. If you encrypted it, make sure you store your flashable zips in your SD card, as the internal storage won’t be accessible. Everything else should work.

Please test it and let me know if you find any other issue.

If you’re looking for a ROM to install into this device, you may want to check out CyanogenMod 12 😉
