Hi guys,

I own both a Galaxy S2 and Ace2. I have already installed CyanogenMod on the S2 and I am about to do the same on the Ace2 using an unofficial release. I have noticed differences in the procedure between the two devices and I would like to understand these differences.

On the S2 you first need to install a custom recovery (ClockworkMod) using Odin before flashing the Cyanogenmod zip. The reason for this is the stock recovery will recognise that Cyanogenmod is a custom ROM and will not permit it to be installed directly.

However on the Ace2 it seems that you can install Cyanogenmod directly from zip using the stock recovery. Does the stock recovery on the Ace2 not have the ability to recognise custom ROMs or does it simply not care?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know about recovery recognision but I know that installing Custom ROM on Ace 2 is easier than on S2. You just need to flash the zip with Cyanogenmod but sometimes Custom ROM's need newer recovery so then you must install temporary CWM recovery to flash that kind of Custom ROM.
