and that changeeees ... yeah right nothing. I am on CM since a CM9 nightly and never had your problem. so that changes .. yeah again nothing. if your recovery is ****ed it is ****ed. doesn't matter what you had running before. if you REALLY can't get into recovery, flashing with odin is the only way.
Yup, i know, if Odin detects the phone, there's still hope...
got the MLO write failed using I9100GXXLSR_I9100GXEFLSR_XEF posted in forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s2/development/collections-official-firmwares-kernels-t2199288
(btw, sammobile website is so buggy i can't download, thanks to Ryuinferno for backing up those files
what happened next :
- found another pit file (for larger apps partition), flashed it OK
- flashed JB bootloader OK
- battery went dead, couldn't even enter download mode, lol
- borrowed a full charged battery from a workmate, and then the same stock rom I9100GXXLSR_I9100GXEFLSR_XEF flashed OK
- installed back 20140416 : lots of Force Closes, unusable
- flashed back 20140415 OK
Am i the only one with problems on 20140416 ?
