[Q] Cyanogenmod 11 Update from CM 10.2 bootloop my galaxy s2

I used for the first time cyanogenmod with their one click install and i was able to flash CM10.2. (Galaxy sII - i9100)
But from the moment i understood that i was not going to have a fm radio again i decided at least to flash the newest CM version.
And that was what i did...
i flashed CM11 and the suitable version of gapps for the rom and after that i reboot my phone.
From that moment and until now my phone is in a constant bootloop in the CM logo screen!

Are there any ideas how to overcome this situation?

I tried to install again CM with their one click installation from the download screen but CM respond that they did not support my devise!
Imagine that i tried to sideload CM10.2 but nothing happened.

Please any help would be really appreciated!

You need to flash it with a KK compatible CWM. Search the ROM threads for a link to one.....and follow ALL the instructions.....

Hi!
Step 1: Pull out the battery just to make sure that the phone is completely powered off and then charge your battery for a sufficient amount of time to ensure you have enough charge. You don't want the battery to die during a flash.
Step 2: Press and hold (Volume up + Home + Power) buttons simultaneously till you see the "GT-I9100" splash/logo at which point let go off the buttons, your phone will boot into CWM Recovery, it'll be KitKat compatible since you're coming from CM 10.2
Step 3: Now follow THIS VIDEO STEP-BY-STEP to install CM11
Step 4: Enjoy your brand new KitKat powered S2 & hit Thanks if I helped you
Regards,
Omkar

If he's coming from 10.2 the CWM WILL NOT be compatible (10.2 is a JB build and the CWM will be for JB builds). He needs to flash a KK CWM as a first step.....he DOESN'T need to remove his battery or watch non XDA videos....or any of those other steps.
What he DOES need to do (in this order) is......
1) charge battery
2) flash KK CWM
3) reboot recovery
4) do the wipes
5) flash ROM
6) flash gapps
7) reboot....
THAT IS ALL

Half knowledge is dangerous buddy, get your facts right first. If you have a doubt, flash the latest cm10.2 nightly and check the recovery version, it'll be greater than cwm 6.0.4.3 which is the what makes it kitkat compatible recovery. Your wife is wrong and about the video, I bet he'll find it more useful then what you have written. What do you mean by "do the wipes"? You're helping him or confusing him even more? Either tell him the complete thing which wipes you're talking about or don't, at all. And let him decide what he needs to watch and what he doesn't. And when someone else is trying to help too, let them, don't be a jerk.

Jerk?........
Who are you to call me names....
All you are trying to do is to increase the number of views on a video you posted to YouTube.
And what if the OP is running an older 10.2?......he'll more than likely have an older CWM.
The method I detailed removes the un-necessary over complication of flashing an entire ROM just to get an updated CWM.
And finally, about the wipes......
If the OP reads the flashing instructions in the relevant thread, he'll know EXACTLY what I mean. So don't harp on at me about giving half the knowledge.....this site isn't about "spoon feeding" it's about providing information and pointers to XDA resources that will allow people to get more confident on their own through reading and learning.....
Oh yeah...and feel free to comment on my sig again......you obviously have nothing else to add......

1) My comment about signature and my language was inappropriate. It was immature on my part, I'm sorry.
2) OP posted this query YESTERDAY, so there's no way he could be running that old a build of CM10.2 with CWM 6.0.4.2 or lower.
3) And I posted those videos to help as I myself and many others prefer video tutorials to text guides. Sorry if my videos offend you.
Kind regards,
Omkar
