Thanks, Pistacchio, I downloaded the CF-Root kernel but haven't used it yet. I rooted my phone with insecure kernel and just left it like that.
If you happen to have the stock kernel for the XWKI8 upload it, if not, mine works just fine with the insecure one.

Or, is there any other custom kernel that I might flash? Does anyone know?

Well, if you don't want official, you can consider Siyah or any of that sort

The kernel's name is XXKI3 Stock Kernel, but unfortunately, I don't have it... Not even stored in my laptop

My SGS2 is stucked in a strange way. I was trying to install Darky's rom from DarkysOTA tool, it restarted my phone into recovery and flashed it then restarted but since that it wont boot. instead of boot animation it shows pixels that appears slowly and becomes brighter and brighter. same thing happens even if i tried to go to Recovery mode or Downoad mode.
Please help me. i cant even go into recovery or download mode. I dont want to loose my SGS2.
Thanks.

ONLY FLASH WITH RE-PARTITION TICKED AND A PIT FILE IF YOU ARE SURE
THAT THE FLASH WILL SUCCEED.

Which means that you CANNOT have a damaged USB, corrupted drivers and such.


When recovering from a soft brick, it is recommended, not mandatory, to have Re-partition ticked with a .PIT file. So you must be extra careful when you are using a .PIT and Re-Partition. And obviously, the red box is the one where you can't and don't want to mess with

But where are the files going, you say?

.PIT -> PIT
CODE -> PDA
MODEM -> PHONE
CSC -> CSC

Mmm, you seen to have either corrupted GPU drivers or your GPU died (never seen any case of that, but it's always possible).

Can you like get in Download mode? Doesn't matter if it shows on screen or not, if you can, you can try to flash the fw anyway... But first, tell me if you can or cannot get in DL mode, we don't want to bork your device

Could anyone please link me to villianROM 1.1? cant seem to find it anywhere..the link seems to be dead. The v3.0 is the zip file which i cant flash in stock recovery.

EDIT: Any other custom rom that i could use? All attempts to get rid of the bootloop using these methods have failed and custom rom is the last option
EDIT 2: Found VillainROM but its not helping It flashes successfully in ODIN just like stock rom but the phone just reboots and gets stuck in bootloop again. Can some1 plz help me out here?
