First of all, I would like to say sorry if I'm in the wrong thread. As I don't know where else I can ask for help. I got a Galaxy SII given by a friend, BUT, it is a japan version which is ISW11SC. I looked at it and I realised that it was a wrong kernel flashed. I got a factoryfs.img for this model somewhere off a website. But again, I am not so sure about, if I'm gonna flash the .img back using odin under PDA, will this bring the kernel back to stock? Or it's not included? I will appreciate any great great help given to me. If possible, any insecure or rooted kernel meant for ISW11SC or a compatible one to be use.

First of all, you are in the wrong forum

Normally you should be able to flash the original kernel image or the original firmware via Odin and you should be good to go.

As far as I know, your phone seems to be similar to the Galaxy S II HD LTE, which is powered by a Qualcomm CPU and Adreno graphics, the model's name is GT-I9210.

I tried to find a compatible ROM, but had no success. Do you know someone who has the same phone? He eventually can perform a ROM dump.

Another baffling post. Why on earth does anybody think its ok to post crap like this in dev sections?

Ask questions in questions forum..
Post general topic in gen forum..
Post developments/reference in dev forum..

How hard is that to comprehend?

This isn't specifically at you slackerz, this is more at n00bs in general. I just cant understand why people find it so hard to read forum titles or take a look at forum for a few seconds before deciding that this forum looks nothing like what I should be posting my random post in.

the zImage contains the kernel, but I'm not quite sure how to create a tarball from that. I used to flash kernel images with odin mobile, but that isn't very helpful in your case. Try to google a tutorial on creating tarballs, or aybe someone else can give you advice on that!

If your zImage includes the initramfs, you're good to go; the tar of a kernel is just a tar archive with zImage inside, nothing special.
