Phone [Q] S2 i9100 PROBLEM!

2 days ago i decided to root my samsung galaxy S2 i9100, after i rooted the phone i got a yellow triangle at the boot up screen which i then used triangle away, then my battery started to die very quickly it gets to 50% the screen flickers and then dies and tells me i have only 1% battery life.. i read that it could be the kernel, i was using siyah i think thats how it spelt so i then flashed the philsZ kernel and recovery.. thats has done nothing i still get the screen flicker and shut down at 50%, any ideas off what this is? is there a fix? do i have to spend any money to fix it ect, thanks.

Back to completely stock first to test, if problem persists new battery, if problem still persists replace USB board/port.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

okay, one more question.. when i put my phone on charge, the charger is loose in the port it still charges fines but i have to either place the phone on a surface of hold the charger in so it doesnt fall out i have tried other chargers and its the same with them, the port looks fine from what i can see the charger is just loose, so any ideas on how to fix/make the charger stay in firmly?

Sounds like the board/port is either loose or not working as it should & needs replacing. You could always open the phone up & take a look/make sure it's in its right place. If after you've done that it's still causing problems, KeithRoss39 has a guide in the General section on replacing the board/port - it's quick/cheap (maybe US$15 or less)/easy to do yourself, his guide has all the info you need to get that done.

Edit - If that's happening with different cables, then it's obviously the port (either loose or needs replacing).
