Steps to install ClockworkMod
Step 1: Download and extract the following files:
Step 2: Power down your device completely before booting back up in Download Mode. This is achieved by holding Volume Down and Home simultaneously, before long-pressing the Power button until a message appears prompting you to tap Volume Up.
Step 3: Launch Odin3 v3.07.exe as extracted in Step 1, ensuring that you do so as an Administrator on Windows.
Step 4: Connect your S4 to your computer, ensuring that an "Added" message pops up in the bottom left-hand area of the Odin interface. If you don’t see the message, try another USB port, and failing that, check the relevant USB drivers are installed.
Step 5: Open the cofface_I9500_cwm_recovery_en_new.tar file you extracted in Step 1, ensuring you’ve also checked the PDA checkbox. Also, you’ll need to make sure that the Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are checked. Make sure that Re-partition is unchecked, or your device could become permanently bricked.
Step 6: Hit the Start button in Odin, and the flashing process will commence. Once CWM recovery has been successfully flashed, your device will reboot, and a message "Pass" should confirm as much by appearing in the left-hand side of the Odin interface.
