[Q] My Galaxy S2 only accepts official ROMS, no custom rom working please help

Hi there,

I've got a huge problem.

After having tried the official Samsung ROM (2.3.5, I9100XXKI3), I rooted my phone using CF-ROOT 4.2. That works perfectly.

Then, I've downloaded a custom ROM.
I've put the .zip file at the root of my phone.
Then, I have rebooted in recovery mode.
I've done a data/cache/dalvik wipe.
I've done a "install zip from card", using the zip file of the rom.

The script says everything is allright... but after restart my phone stays blocked at the same point : the Samsung Galaxy SII logo with the yellow triangle.
Nothing more.

I've tried 4 different custom roms and it does the same with all (Cyanogenmod, MIUI, Litening, Revolution).
With the Cyanogenmod, it's a bit different : i have the same issue but it also seems to loop reboot...

The only ROM that works is the official Smasung ROM that I install using Odin.

Any idea of what I can do to fix this ?
Any idea of what I'm doing bad ?

Many thanks

PS : I would love to install a MIUI.

PS : I've justed tried again to install MIUI, and now, after rebooting after the installation from CWM, the phone goes to Recoverymode by itself and says :
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log

Try Cyanogen. I've heard a few things about installing from zip twice. After it's finished the first time, install from zip again. No guarantees off course.

You could try flashing an earlier official Rom first then cfroot then Custom Rom.

Read somewhere that you need to factory reset if you're downgrading which is possible since you're going from 2.3.5.

First of all, many thanks yo you all.
@meranto : Already tried and the only thing it does is a boot loop.
@aceofclubs : Good idea. That's what I'm trying right now.
@Henrywcy81 : flash twice : see above. Downgrade : again, good idea

Any advice on which Kernel I should use ? Could it be a kernel problem ?

Many thanks guys.

Wow I've just tried to downgrade and WOW.
Never had so much error messages.
I loose root but everything crashes just after the first Samsung Galaxy SII logo.
I have a lot of error messages saying that the phone can't mount partitions.

Sounds bad :S
