Unhappy [Q] Help: Bootloop after upgrading CWM

Hi all,

For backup purpose , I tried to upgrade to the latest Recovery_CWM_6.0.4.7_I9100.zip using Install Zip from an older CWM of my Samsung Galaxy S2.

And I'm in big trouble because after installing the clockworkmod recovery the phone won't boot anymore. It's stuck on "Galaxy SII - GT-I9100 - SAMSUNG" splash screen

The CWM works and gives this log:
I:Can't partition non mmcblk device: /devices/platform/dw_mmc//mmc_host/mmc0/mmc0

I can mount partition and accessed it from my pc.

I wiped cache and dalvic cache without more luck.
There is no vibration on boot either.

As my data aren't backup yet, I don't want to wip them out with some ROM. Did I miss something?
Any hint about what I should do to have the phone boot again would be greatly appreciated!



Cheers

@GalaxyS2u did you flashed the right cwm/kernel for your rom since they are included in one boot.img? If you cannot flash an new rom anymore in the recovery or reflash the kernel /recovery then you need to flash an kernel/recovery in odin. Try an odin philz kernel if there is one else flash siyahkernel with odin.

And that partition thing is that even an valid partition ?
Backup your data first in recovery then try my things i suggested. I still think that the reason why it doesnt boot is because you flashed the wrong recovery/kernel.
Are you on stock btw? I suggest to try to flash philz kernel if you are on stock.

Thanks a lot for your hint . That saves my precious!
I can manage to come back to my old CWM recovery with a flash of siyah with odin.
The new CWM works only with a new ROM and not with my old stock. With this experience, I am even able to upgrade to the KitKat version.

Viva this model and this community!
