HI

I have Galaxy s2 with android 2.3.5. I want flash OMNI 4.4 rom on it..but before that I want to flash latest CWM recovery on my S2. And also my S2 doesn't have root access So the problem is

Can I flash latest CWM recovery when my S2 have android 2.3.5. ? or should I update official ICS from OTA before flash ?

(I'm planning to use ODIN to flash CWM)

thanks
Step 1 - flash CF kernel which is appropriate to ur baseband with Odin

You can flash CWM and then the custom ROM now itself, without upgrading to ICS. Just make sure you flash the correct rooted kernel for your baseband version. Don't directly flash any CWM or use ROM manager. Good luck!

 





Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 | ROM: Omega v23 - XWLSN - 4.1.2 | Theme: Crussader's JB Reloaded v1.07 | Kernel: PhilZ v4.93.6 | Baseband: I9100DDLS9
Life's kinda busy. So you won't be seeing much of me. Still I'm available via PM.

And you can't search for this why exactly ? You've been here more than long enough to know how things work.
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 !
Probably the best thread ever posted on XDA
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 ?
Donate to you ?? Bahahaaaaahahahahahahaaahahaha !!!

Flash Gustavo's kernel first and then follow instructions on the omni thread for flashing as a first time user.

Search around and you will find everything here itself.

I'd suggest flashing the latest stock rom via Odin, ms1 I believe. Then flash philz kernel. Then boot into recovery, (while your new rom cwm zips are on your SD card) format system, preload, data and cache. Then flash the omni rom zip, and the correct gapps, and any other mods you would like.
