You need to update recovery. I'd say the best bet is twrp 2.6.1.0. Though I haven't flashed my s2 in awhile....maybe a newer version is better? Last I checked 2.6.1.0 was best.

Then the newer ROMs should flash fine.

Make sure to follow the ROM flash instructions to the letter.

I'd say nandroid first....but you'd have to flash twrp first, then do it. But I'd have Odin and a stock 4.1.2 image ready just in case. In fact....I'd Odin 4.1.2 first. Then flash twrp and root. Nandroid backup after. Then flash ROMs.


Read up good though....I'm not there, so I don't warranty this advice. Lol.

Good luck.

Sent from my N5, N7, Moto X, G Tab 3 or S2.....
