[Help] / [Q] : Samsung Galaxy S2 (I9100G) - Stuck after Jelly Bean Update attempt
Android OS downloaded an update file of Jelly Bean which I did not want to install but it kept coming back after pushing it forward.
Today, by mistake, I accidently pressed the Install button and the phone is now stuck at boot up screen.
I am (was) on ICS.
I tried connecting the phone with Samsung KIES, but the phone status shows as "Connecting"
I have downloaded ODIN and I would like to go to any rooted firmware (preferred). But I am not sure if I can root from this situation. I may have to recover to boot properly and then root, as I do not want to lose any data.
However, I have never done it and I get confused on which firmware to download for my phone based out of India.
The details I could fetch under the phone battery are :
Model : GT-I9100G
SSN : -I9100GGSMH
FCC ID : A3LGTI9100G
Can anyone direct me to the file URLs to download to recover from this position ?
Any thread giving a detailed procedure will be appreciated. I would not like to wipe the existing data over the phone, hence I have not tried the factory reset.
I have gone through :
>> Will this ODIN version work on my S2 model ?
Also, I do have an external SD card, if possible, can I load any rooted / normal firmware through it ?
Thanks a lot for all your help !!!
