Man, why didn't anyone tell me there were two versions of the Att sgs2? The I777 and the I727! I downloaded the kernel for the wrong phone and Odin'ed it to my friends s2. He saw AKOP on my phone and wanted it on his.
I searched skyrocket in the search bar and found Att galaxy S2 skyrocket development, skimmed over the tuts, basically the same procedure as our phones. Downloaded him CWM recovery and his ROM, went to flash it and kept getting a red failed instead of a pass! I said, well that's a first. I went to turn on his phone and a message came on saying firmware failed blah blah blah.
My heart sank. No boot, no recovery but download mode still worked, I knew all hope wasn't lost.
After an hour of reading around the forum I glanced over to his phone with the battery off, I noticed it said sgh-I777 and looked at the ROMs and noticed they had sgh-I727 in the titles.
I googled xda sgh-I777 and found the right forum, thank god I finally found a tar to fix his phone. He's rocking AKOP now and couldn't be happier. Im just glad I didn't brick him.
I am phatman and I am a flashaholic
