Confirmed working on a T-Mobile variant Samsung Galaxy S II (SGH-T989)!!

Took me a while to get the proper hardware-specific configuration, but I was able to do it. ^_^

I had to use some of the info here ( - reason: "the default ramdisk offset is 0x01000000 while our phone needs 0x01400000."

To turn on framebuffer logging (where you see the kernel text scrolling by during initial boot) add this to the kernel cmdline:

console=tty0,115200 fbcon=rotate:1 fbcon=font:VGA8x8


Here's my command line after re-gzipping the modified initramfs:

./mkbootimg-sg2x --kernel boot.img-kernel --ramdisk ramdisk.gz --cmdline "console=tty0,115200 fbcon=rotate:0 fbcon=font:VGA8x16 androidboot.hardware=qcom msm_watchdog.appsbark=0 msm_watchdog.enable=1 loglevel=4" -o --base 0x40400000 --pagesize 2048
