You don't need much expertise, my friend, to do this. Maybe some knowledge on how to use makefiles and C, but not really required.

I have updated the Android Kitchen to 0.196 to add support for this device. I created that ROM above successfully using the kitchen.

Cool,

- download and install 64-bit Ubuntu to a PC or virtual machine,
- find out how to get CM7 or 9 on a fast 64-bit PC (takes few hours to download!)
- grab my source from Github and copy under /device/samsung/sgs2hdbell (You don't need the Android SDK to extract the kernel and mounts from recovery.img/boot.img since it's already in my folder)
- add a new device entry under /vendor/cyanogen/products (just copy from one of the other devices and edit it),
- add out/host/linux-x86/bin to your PATH variable in ~/.profile
- find out how to build CWM.
- read up on .hidenandroidprogress file to fix CWM long file name issue with Samsung devices in Nandroid, or else edit /bootable/recovery/nandroid.c function yaffs_callback to return NULL at the first line.
- find out how to use 'tar' and 'md5sum' to convert the final recovery.img into a recovery.tar that is flashable in Odin

I can help as required.

WHere did you read this? Cos I also read it had something to do with not having /datadata or /dbdata
mentioned in the mount point entries. However, none of these are listed as mounts on the device.

Also, we are building CWM (which is part of the CyanogenMod recovery source files) but not a CWM7 ROM. As far as I know CWM 5.0.2.8 is the same as on CM9. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong though.

Found this Info onfixing permissions.
http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...tml#post716109

What if we used a different version of CWM? an earlier version?

Seems that the Galaxy note SGH_i717 had similar problems with a CWM bootloop, read the forums at the bottom.

Wonder if we could find out the fix??

Yeah I saw that comment for the guy not being able to boot up. Thanks for the info on permissions.. I did try earlier to fix permissions but made no diff. I just want it working without having to do any hacking afterwards.

Maybe I will start fresh with CM9 and build it again? I have CM7 now.

From looking, the recovery source looks unchanged, but I guess you never know between libraries etc...

Found something strange, If i reboot into your CWM, if i dont touch anything and just press the reboot system button, it will boot the system everytime, just tried it about 6 times.

Also just flashed my own version of the bell Rom and it rebooted first time out of CWM and started the system up??!! what the hell strange!! Mind of its own
