thanks amirTor for replying again

jus wantd to know if the process is similar for the help u had given me for installing neat rom coz i ran into a lot of problems and m still facing problems of connectivity (wifi not connecting)and issues with the neat rom (superfast battery drainage) as i flashed it the 2nd time again (AOSP NeatRom v 2.8) using the guidance u had given me for my phone although ur hints for installing were spot on but i m having problems .

thats y i had to ask again i didnt want her to face the same problems as mine .

so if the process and the files are the same that is required then if u suggest i go ahead with the cyanogen mod or omni rom i will start installing it

awating ur response

thanks

Weird, you're the first I heard who has complains about Neatrom (did you try to install the lastest 6.8 version?)
Anyway, the process is the same for all custom roms, the only different is that philz recovery was updated from 6.7.9 to 6.14.5

i have tried with the philz 6.04.5 which u had suggested for me while in my inquiry for my phone.well shortly today i got frustrared and tried installing the neatrom v 5.7 for samsung galaxy s2 gt i9100 well it was a wooping big file almost 738 mb but that also installed as per ur instructions and read aurthor sale post on how to install but now the problem i am facing is after completely installing everything the first boot as per the neatrom v 5.7 aurthor should be around 10 min but for me it jus shows the neat rom animation screen again and again and the phone jus keeps getting hot from the back i cant seem to get into the main screen well looks like i m done for i guess

the steps i followed for the neat rom v 5.7 (4.1.2) instalation are

1-copied both the neat rom v 2.8(4.4.2) and v 5.7(4.1.2) zip files ,gapps (AIO_gapps.4.4.2.build.2.1), philz_touch_6.07.9-i9100,zip ,CWM-KitKatCompatible-i9100,zip files to the sd card

2- flashed odin v 3.09 with file PhilZ-cwm6-XWLSZ-OJC-5.15.9.tar,md5 and got philz recovery installed

3- then installed philz_touch_6.07.9-i9100,zip from sd card to update philz touch recovery to 6.04.5( it shows the 6.04.5 after updating)

4- the wiped system clean for new rom installation, wiped cache, wiped delvik cache form advanced settings, formatted /system &/preloads from mounts and storage

5- installed the neat rom v5.7 (4.1.2)and it installed everything

but at the first reboot it jus keeps flashing the neat rom circle animation and that it jus keeps flashing that again an again i waited for like 25 min on that screen and then felt the phone heaating up from the battery back side on my hand so i switched it off completely

i dont know wat steps i did wrong or did i miss something i kept reading through all the various post and cant seem to get a solution for it

is the philz touch recovery 6.15.4 compatible for the galaxy s2 gt i9100

plz if there any solution for the problem i m facing plz i need some advice

Flash the lastest 6.14.4 from here: http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_A..._Edition/i9100
and try again after wipe (you're doing anything as should).

Few questions:
Does Neatrom installation log mention any errors while installing?
Maybe you should try to disable neat's boot animation (possible as part of the aroma install)
Are you trying to install this version: http://goo.gl/qRDYgf ?

If still no go, describe your actions at aroma installer, or try asking at rom's thread, perhaps they'll better aswers.

BTW- does kitkat version work as should?
