Hey. Im brand new to this forum and to Android aswell since i came from Iphone. Yea im a noob and sorry if you notice bad english
So i received my SGS2 some days ago and after researching about root/custom roms and stuff, I decided to start with rootin my SGS2. i download Odin3 1.85 and superoneclick, i also liked litening rom v1.1 and downloaded that too.
So i turn on "USB debugging" and turn off the phone to enter "download mode" and when i try to connect to Odin, nothing shows up. And Windows bar tells me that usb is not recognised. But... flash drive/transferring files and connecting to Kies works just fine. Please help me, ive been sitting over 24 hours with this issue and ive restarted/uninstalled installed pretty much everything over and over again (kies/drivers/device) not windows though. Why wont Windows/odin recognise it in download mode???

And if possible, is there a way around to install litening rom??

This is driver issue.Try to find on kies an option to install the drivers again(i am not in front of my pc).Of course phone on and untick usb debugging

This is a driver problem. The Gadget Driver fails to get installed properly.

Make sure Windows Update are set to automatically find drivers for your devices.

I myself faced this problem. To rectify it I'd to try the same thing on a different machine and it worked flawlessly there.

The problem you're facing is that the Service Mode drivers are not getting installed, hence Odin is unable to recognize it.

Other possible fixes include, trying on different USB Ports, downloading Samsung PC Studio.

In kies, i think in the tools menu, there is a install drivers option. This will fix the problem im sure. Not sure about pc studio having the same.

fyi, i reinstalled windows and updated everything and the driver connection issue is solved now. I should have done this from the beginning instead of freaking out for several midnight hours lol thx for the help everyone, hopefully the rooting and flashing process should happen painless now
