are u 100% sure that by ur method of flashing stock i9100 rom and i777kernel my phone will work..cause i don't think both these firmware and kernel of different phones will work together...
Look. If you are gonna flash a stock I9100 ROM den you sure will brick it. And by stock I mean pure stock straight from Samsung. And if you flash a CUSTOM stock ROM you wont get a brick as far as you have ported it to SGH-I777..to my knowledge. I have done this.
And I would suggest you to flash an AOSP ROM.
And porting the ROM is nothing like "specially mod the rom". You just have to replace a few 'modules' which are in the system/etc/modules folder(M not sure if it is in etc or usr folder) and flash it off. You dont have to change any keylayout file as u want the buttons to work same as on I9100. Please google "How to port an I9100 ROM to SGH-I777". Its pretty simple process.
And make sure you flash a SGH-I777 kernel after u flash the I9100 ROM.
