Samsung - S2G Flashing Custom ROM Not Possible!

Galaxy S II Q&A - xda-developers - forum.xda-developers.com
Hey guys

I'm trying to flash my S II I9100G with cMIUI, which doesn't work. The phone gets stuck during booting right after the installation. I've been messing around with this problem for a couple of hours by now, been googling a lot and yet I have not found a solution.

What I did in order to flash the ROM:

1) I installed the latest German stock ROM (ICS) using Odin.

2) I followed this tutorial (root using SU-BB-Installer.zip and flash CWM recovery kernel 6.0.1.2 via kTool): So far everything works fine. I have root access now.

3) Downloaded the cMIUI 2.10.19 zip from

4) When I tried to flash cMIUI from Recovery and toogle signature verification "on", it told me "signature verification failed". I ignored that message and installed it anyway.

5) Installation ran smoothly. After finishing it, the phone wanted to reboot. It now got stuck in the booting screen. I can not get the ROM booted.

I don't think it's cMIUI-caused, because I tried to flash a clean CM10 and still had the same problem (even though it didn't fail signature verification). Here are some more things I tried:

- installed clean stock ROM via Odin, again. Then followed all above steps exactly as described above, except for using Odin for flashing CWM Recovery instead of kTool

- again, clean stock ROM. After rooting, I then tried to install cMIUI via ROM Manager v5.5.2.3. Unfortunately, ROM Manager doesn't identify CWM recovery and keeps asking me to install the Recovery-System with ROM Manager. When I try that, there apparently "is no official CWM Recovery available" for my model. So, ROM Manager is no option

As described in the following thread, I can not use the ClockworkMod Recovery 6.0.1.2 kernel on aosp based ROMs like cMIUI and CM: So that probably is the cause of my problem. Can you tell me what kernel I can use, instead? Or is there another way to flash that ROM? Via Odin, for example...

Thanks for your help in advance. Very much appreciated!!

Regards,

Daniel
