PLEASE PLESE HELP ME.
HI...
I m new at XDA.
I was installing custom rom on my Galaxy S2 GT I9100G.
I rooted it and checked root status by an app @Playstore IT SHOWS MY PHONE HAS BEEN ROOTED.
Then I copied omnirom and gapps on external sd card and tried to install them after formatting and wiping cache.
Its shows an error with status 7.
NOW MY PHONE HAS BEEN STUCK AT RECOVERY MOOD.

I TRIED TO FLASH VIA ODIN BUT .zip FILES ARE NOT RECOGNISED BY ODIN @pda.

PLEASE HELP ME ...

odin uses .tar files not zip files, Try unzipping the .zip you got, be sure its for your device only.

What recovery are you using? This is usually fixed by installing the latest recovery. I recommend TWRP 2.7.0.1

DO NOT flash any custom roms via ODIN. Odin is only for stock roms.

So, flash the latest TWRP for your phone via Odin and try to reflash the custom rom from TWRP.

And don't worry, as long as you can boot in recovery or at least download mode, you're fine

Edit: I searched a bit for a newer recovery for your model and all I could find was this page http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...l-v16-t2275275
Try following the instructions from there to get a newer recovery

V5 is too old to work with the latest roms. Use the information from this link to flash a newer recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...l-v16-t2275275

http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23189362627841104 - CWM6
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23189362627841105 - TWRP
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23189362627841103 - Philz

Use the instructions in the first link.

Do not attempt to flash custom roms with ODIN.
Odin is only for stock firmware.
