Hey everyone. I decided to revive my S2 but I ran into a problem and I can't solve it. I lost count of threads I read and I still don't have an answer. Can someone guide me step by step how to flash CWM and ROM to my SGS2 (i9100)?

At the moment I have stock ROM flashed using Odin since all my tries to flash latest CWM and ROM ended in a bootloop or I didn't even manage to flash anything. If I try to flash CWM through stock Android recovery, it says "Signature verification failed". I flashed Dorimanx kernel using Odin to get the recovery but then I couldn't flash ROM because it said "E: Can't mount sd card". I tried flashing Resurrection Remix ROM.

I have no idea what to do because everytime I think something new, I run into these 2 errors. It would be great to get some help.

Ignas.

I downloaded the kernel from here: http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_A..._Edition/i9100 but I get this error: E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip (Status 7). Above this, in the yellow font, it says This pacakge is for galaxys2, i9100, GT-I9100, GT-I9100M, GT-I9100P, GT-I9100T, SC-02C', devides: this is a ' '. How can I fix this?

Kernel not just recovery.
I think you need to read the thread before flashing away and possible bricking you're phone.

Rooting and installing cwm is basic stuff. Bricking is common place too.

Do you mean this http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_A...on/i9100/Stock (Download doesn't work) ? I can't find any other links there for the latest version.

I'm not really scared of bricking my phone since I won't use it without flashing it correctly anyway. I have flashed it few times successfully in the past but now I can;t do this and it's really annoying. I flashed my friend's phone without any problems but I can't do that for myself.
