HI,
these may seem like dumb questions--apologies, if so--
not too sure what difference between the Wipe Data System cache 1 and 2 is??
Also, would it be alright to use Philz [ Wipe Data/System/Cache] scripts and then Flash a ROM in Recovery--or must we do it using ODIN from Download mode--as stated in the Thread earlier??

If you want to flash a ROM, you have to be on a safe kernel. What is your device?

Sorry for delay--
o
Using S2 19100--with Biftor v.5 and Dorimanx 7.44
But just wondering about using the wipe before going to Samsung Leak--XLSJ or XLS8--Deodexed, or Non-Deodexed.
Not that I don't like V.5 [ though, at the moment my fav. Biftor is 4.7] but haven't tried a Stock Samsung recently.

Well you are already on a custom kernel so it should be safe for flashing and wiping.
Try LSJ ROM with PhilZ LS8 kernel. Good combo apparently.

Thanks--I will follow your recommendations,
and I should use the Sammy Wipe from Philz, also??

BTW--I read somewhere that, if on Dorimanx 7.44, or other Dorimanx, we should enter the STweaks settings and use
'Restire Home Key For Other Kernels'--before changing to a new Kernel--correct??

I would do it this way:
Get Philz LS8 (zip), put it on extSdCard, flash it from current recovery, reboot recovery, go to Philz Settings and perform /Clean before flash new Rom. Now flash LSJ. After that boot into (now stock) recovery and flash LS8 kernel again. Done - On JB, rooted, safe kernel and Philz CWM recovery:thumbup:

Thanks--will give it a go--I am just trying the new Biftor 5.1 and so far I'm pretty happy with it.

Thumbs up This saved my phone from a stuck in boot process.

Thank you! Samsung_Wipe_Data_System_Cache_2.0-signed got my phone back. GT-N7000 with stock ICS 4.1.2 ROM started with a reboot loop after unlocking it. Reflashing the stock ROM made it get stuck in boot. Applying this and reflashing the stock ROM made the phone work again.
