Yes.
Welcome to XDA.

Please go to your device's forum using the search your device box from site. type samsung galaxy s2 and choose your device from the options. Look for the stock odin firmwares thread there. Download the one from your region, see the instructions given on flashing there. If you don't understand the instructions, check out youtube videos for that.
Odin is a easy process and just needs instructions to be followed correctly.

And inform us here when you recover your phone again.

Hi guys! as you can see I am new here
I posted a question in a old thread whose topic was similar to my question but no one answered(cmon! i followed the rules!!!)
This annoyed me a lot, those who preach these rules dont bother to help those who keep it up, I am glad a thread like this is here.

So here I am with my question:
I own a samsung galaxy grand


So i installed the Cyanogenmod 10.1

But I am unable to make calls, it says turn off airplane mode, which i did, rebooted and all

here is the weird part:
I CAN receive calls from other phones but cannot make calls because my phone is still in airplane mode even i removed it from airplane mode.

So can anyone help me?

Hi,
Make sure you close samsung kies when you try to use odin.
As for flashing anything from odin, you will need to boot into download mode (vol. Down + power + home) after switching phone off. Then press vol. up, you will see a warning, first and after that comes the downloading screen.

Now make sure drivers are installed correctly, open odin, and now connect phone with usb cable, wait for some time till it shows a yellow box saying COM : ID xxx , something like that and now you can flash relevent files through relevent options. Wait for pass (green) signal and you're done.

That seems crazy, if it shows flight mode, you should also not be able to recieve calls. Seems a problem with the rom. Try wiping cache/dalvick cache /data from cwm/twrp and see if it fixes the bug. If not contact the rom developer or flash another/stock rom and reflash CM 10.1 to see if the problem persists.

Also welcome.

You can use task maneger or just uninstall it if it isn't needed as such.

Well, I have gone through your thread. Please can you confirm if it is same result with different firmware? If the problem still persists, please take your phone to service centre. Act as dumb and don't let them know that you have tried rooting. They will get it fixed for you.
