THAT is when I learned I was using tools for the Galaxy S2 S9100 - NOT the SGH-I777 that I have.
The issue at hand is now that I realized my mistake, how do I proceed from here? I can't get the phone into any kind of recovery mode, and since I went the wrong way to start, I'm looking for the best advice... should I go backwards and make it stock to start from scratch, or can I proceed forward from here?
I did the same thing less than a month ago (only I used his AT&T version.) I'm guessing your wifi doesn't work, correct?
To fix my problem I utilized the info posted by creepyncrawly here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...27&postcount=1
I chose 2c to fix the phone, which had to be followed by booting into e3 and doing a factory data reset to get rid of the wifi issues.
To install clockworks mod and gain recovery options again I used the same thread by creepyncrawly and chose option 3c, which I used with Entropy's Daily Driver (currently running the latest version with no issues!) You can find that here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...28&postcount=1
I'm now free to make my nandroid backups and flash custom roms to play with at will, hope their work helps you too!
