[Q] Play branded firmware, failed backup, what next?
I bought sgs2 few weeks ago, had some fun with stock and samsung apps, then I decided that some changes would be nice
found this great forum, with all knowledge and I have to admit I'm overwhelmed and kinda lost.
rooted my phone with Doomlord method (zerg rush exploit), worked like a charm, installed Titanium Backup, that went smoothly too. From what I understand that didn't change flash counter so I can unroot and keep my warranty in case of hardware problems, am I right?
Then I installed ROM manager and here is where problems started, when I click Flash Recovery it's downloading some file, but when I boot to recovery mode, there is info about e: failed to verify whole-file signature and I can only reboot. If that failed, what did it exactly do with my stock firmware and flash counter? please forgive my noob questions, it's my first android device, I'm reading and learning, but it's a lot to process.
I have branded Play (polish provider) firmware (2.3.3, XWKE7) and I can't upgrade it, cuz I can't backup stock firmware with CWM, I'm afraid to flash without backup in case I need take my phone to samsung.
I would love to at least upgrade to 2.3.5 or try some nice custom roms you guy cook here so skillfully but need some advice
any info will be greatly appreciated
