is the most up-to-date, and straight-forward method that I'm aware of for the I777, I highly recommend it.
Once you're rooted and kernel'd, and can tell us what android version firmware you're trying to get to, we can better suggest which custom kernel to flash prior.
Sorry for not elaborating. The stock ROM (the one i'm on now) thats flash-able through odin, is pre-rooted.
I got it from this thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1286432
But other than root, its completely stock gingerbread, Stock kernel, Bloatware, ETC. I'm trying to get to at least jelly bean or higher. I was on the shoshock rom before I decided to revert to the factory rom to test some things out. The signed package thing you mentioned makes sense because signature verification fails whenever i try to flash a different kernel. But it wont let me flash any of the jelly bean ROMS either (refer to my first post's error).
I visited the link you provided, and want to give the method a try. But mobile odin lite has been giving me constant trouble. it keeps saying I need to install another ad on in order to flash stuff and when I hit OK, the link takes me to my browser, but doesnt direct me to the web page that provides the ad-on download. Where do I go from here?
