My brother's S2 broke, so I can't get detailed specs as I can't get it to boot. This is what I would like help with.
Phone: Samsung S2 GT-I9100
Carrier: unknown, possibly UK Vodafone
What happened: Phone failed to boot one day, stuck on a screen saying "firmware upgrade encountered an issue (yada yada, fix with Samsung kies)
Action taken: Odin and stock ROM download, repeated attempts and fails at flashing.
Conclusion: After comparing boot sequences and Odin flash logs to my S2 and the internet, NAND RAM
failed, unable to flash/read ROM.
Solution: You guys. Is it possible to boot custom/stock ROM from an external Micro SD card without any reliance on the NAND?
Thank you for any suggestions/help you may have.
