    I am trying to Flash Cyanogenmod 11 to my Samsung Galaxy S3 but I'm stuck at installing the custom recovery. After following the instructions on the Cyanogenmod wiki I got the following error after performing step 8 (On the computer, open a terminal (or Command Prompt on Windows) in the directory where the recovery image is located and type:
    heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img --no-reboot).

    Code:
    C:\Users\fergus\Desktop\Heimdall Suite>heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img --
    no-reboot
    Heimdall v1.4.0

    Try turning the phone off and pull the battery for 10 minutes. Then try the process again.

    You may want to download Root Checker from the PS and verify that your phone is indeed rooted.

    My phone is not rooted. I am using this guide and it says at the very start that rooting "is neither recommended nor necessary." Do you think I should root it anyway and try again?

    Rooting is a personal decision and for those who want more access to their device. Why do you want to install a custom recovery?
