You can't brick through Odin, unless you disconnect during flashing the radio. You have actually more chance of bricking your phone during a kies update as its buggy and crashes out quite a lot;(

Cyanogen mod is android in its purest form built purely from open source. Its then tweaked to add special menus and options to give it an extra edge. Also it gives the latest OS to the masses earlier. The desire HD has only just got gingerbread, cm has given gingerbread to the desire HD for about 6 months)) this is its beauty

Hello,

Is cynogen mod available for the galaxy s2 yet ? So in essence CM is better than stocked android on the galaxy s2. If i am understand correctly I can use odin to root, update and get a better and newer version of android before it is officially out. This is awesome. Whats the downside, do i need drivers, does it drains the battery etc, will i still have touchwiz ?

Don't listen all this tech oriented guys. If before you use your iPhone as-is, you don't need any kind of Odins, firmwares et cetera. Samsung Kies found any official updates, and with two mouse clicks you can install this on your phone. Thats all.

Samsung Galaxy II have very impressive tech parameters, but really disappointing with software. It is reason why people looking for another ROMs flashing this trough Odin and so on, but still no one from this ROMs don't resolve all problems and bugs..
And keep in mind - in case of failure - you can brick your phone and/or loose guaranties..

And I agree with qwerty warrior..

Just look at custom ROMs features. Lag fix, lag fix, lag fix..

For example - I have been using HTC Desire Z & HTC HD - and HTC original soft is much more better then Samsung. Not ideal, of course, but much better! But Samsung have better hardware and screens..

I do not want to discourage people from learning! No! I only ask to do it gradually and safely! Each with a time can begin to flash the phone and use custom ROMs, but not the very next day after switching from iPhone to Android.
