Hey Guys,

I just rooted my S2 and want to install: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...ghtly-t2604068 however it says that I "Must be at least once on stock ICS or JB before attempting!".

I don't know how I am supposd to upgrade my 2.3.5 so that this is possible...

Any advice?

Since you're rooted, install Mobile Odin Pro from Play Store, then download the 4.1.2 firmware for your I9100G by googling the term "offcial 4.1.2 stock firmware for I9100G" and downloading the zip file associated and extracting the .tar file that comes inside. Then, extract the .tar file to your SD card and go to Mobile Odin Pro app and choose to flash the extracted .tar file. It takes some time but it should update your phone to android 4.1.2 and then you can install a custom kernel for your 4.1.2 firmware which supports CWM recovery. I recommend PhilZ kernel which comes with CWM. Note that you need CWM 6.0.4.5 and above to flash a KitKat based ROM (such as Cyanogenmod 11 in your case). There you go, your phone will run the ROM you asked for and much of what I mentioned can simply be googled here and there for more details. Good luck

No problem at all buddy, I am glad to help you This link seems working http://www.mediafire.com/download/eu...ODDLS3_INU.zip (mediafire link) I also found some mirrors over here but no all of them are working http://www.mirrorupload.net/file/0PQ8FEAL/ Anyways, go for Mediafire, it includes the file I told you about
EDIT: Wait a minute, what is your model number? If it's I9100, download this torrent file and use Bit Torrent to download the contents of the .torrent file. If it's I9100G, just use the links I provided above

They didn't have them either, I used Kies to update to 4.1.2 and rooted by flashing CWM-SuperSU-v0.97.zip and it worked fine.

I've now got to find a rom that I like, originally I liked the look of the cynanogenmod 4.4 rom but im looking for a rom/kernel with the best battery life :/

If you need a 4.2.2 Touchwiz ROM, try Revolution Rom UX build 2 by tutangigi, and use stable dorimanx kernel v9.43. SuperNexus 2.0 is good too if you like stable Vanilla AOSP Android. As for Android 4.3, I used SlimBean 4.3 build 2.2. Good luck

A lot of various continued development and support for older roms in the s2 area which is odd to see.

I'm looking to pretty much maximise battery life, the dorimanx kernel looks to be the right kernel for me but unsure elsewhere.

What's better on battery 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4? Does ART in 4.4 help battery wise?
