Hey Everyone! I'm new to the forums so greetings to everyone and thanks for having me!
My phone is rooted. i rooted it installed the app and then flashed the original kernel back to the phone.
I just ''tried'' to install ICS onto my S2 but it failed.
I plugged my phone and in kies prompted me to update the firmware as i expected, so i agreed and clicked continue.
It proceeded to do its thing and downloaded fine and started to install to me phone. the insulation screen had finished and i got a message telling me
"insulation failed try emergency recovery" so i wrote down the code and clicked continue. It also failed telling me to unplug my phone, take out the battery, turn it on and plug it back in. now when i turned the phone on i got a -yellow triangle- in between a phone and computer. so i pluged in into the pc and emergency recovery popped up and prompted me to plug my phone into a usb 2.0 port. so i unplugged it changed the port and again prompted to run emergency recovery so i ran it and it failed again.
So now the phone is stuck on this screen with the triangle and phone/computer doing nothing.
*i can get the phone into download mode*
- -I was thinking to flash the original ROM back onto the phone but now i cant turn it on to get the kernel number and the other details i need. i foolishly deleted the folder with all the files i used to flash my phone a few days ago (oh the beauty of hind sight)
- -I've tried hard reset (as a last resort) but i can get into that option (holding up volume. home and power for a few seconds)
- -Is it possible for me to install a custom ROM onto my phone with out the rooted kernel installed? (but the phone has the rooted app )
If i could install a custom ROM so i can remove my Data from the phone and then reset it to the original settings
*or if need be ill keep the custom ROM*
Any advice would be great.
Thanks for reading
