[Q] n7100 not accepting custom roms
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction with this, I have a uk vodafone n7100 note 2 on 4.3 and as ive had it 2 years i thought i would put a custom rom on it.... ive done this before with other phones and had no problems so i did some research and decided on the latest phoenix rom
I started by putting Philz recovery and Dr Ketans tool kit on it for root etc.... then followed the youtube instruction video for phoenix rom and all went well with the fill wipe of the phone and all the cache wiping as instructed but when i got to the rom install (from external sd) i started the install and the phone said something along the lines of installation aborted and said " (bad) " which i assumed meant the rom was corrupt so i tried from some mirrors and got the same result so i wiped the phone and caches back to square one.....
Then i though i would try the Dr Ketan v7 4.4.2 rom which gave me the same result (bad)
Next (after wiping etc) i tried the DN3 latest rom which actually installed ok according to Philz, ok i though and it rebooted, the "samsung note 2 gt-n7100 " splash screen came up then changed to the next "pulsating samsung logo" screen and it stayed like that for 40 mins at which point i tried a reboot and again stuck in the same place .... I have also been though the whole process using TWRP recovery too incase there was a conflict of some kind......
I have now had to get my phone working using sammobile stock rom (which for some reason installed in german even though it was uk vodafone rom) as i use my phone as my alarm for work etc.... But i really would like to be on the phoenix rom... I have re-installed Philz and tool kit again and phone is running fine at the moment on this strange stock rom.......
Can anybody see what if anything was done wrong ??
(sorry for the lengthy post but ive spent the last 10 hours searching the forums for answers)
Thanks in advance for any help offered
