I am totally new to flashing phones, so I need your help. My aim is to flash my GT-I9100 (Vodafone UK) with Cynogen Mod Kitkat. Currently my phone has Android version of 4.1.2. I do not have root access to my phone and according to Cynogen Mode wiki, this is not necessary.
Apparently I can't post links before 10 posts, sorry I can't show the links from where I got the instructions.
I have 1st tried to flash a new recovery image so that Cynogen installation would be possible.
1) Heimdall Method as in the Cynogen Mode Wiki Page
2) Odin Method available on the internet.
In both I have been successful transferring the listed recovery images (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) to the phone but in both cases whenever the phone is restarted, the device is stuck with Samsung GT-I9100 logo and yellow triangle. I can't access to recovery mode at all.
I had to go back to the download mode again (luckily this worked) and flashed with the original firmware in each cases to recover the device.
I am also confused about the version of CWM as when I go to the original website, above versions are not listed under Galaxy S2.(Only 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52)
Am I missing something here?
