since google has recently released their official new android version , aka , kit kat (4.4) , many devs have also started to port and make new roms for our beloved galaxy s2. but . to flash such roms on our device , i9100 needs to run the proper and compatible recovery which can run the kit kat custom roms . i searched a lot and also found a few people stating in a few posts , about the required recovery . i have done no efforts whatsoever . thank the guy (max lee @ galaxys2root.com ) for extracting the kernel/recovery from cm10.2 and making a flashable zip . attached the file below .
Copy the .zip file onto your sd card and flash it from your cwm.after flashing , reboot your recovery and ... voila ! you'll be running cwm recovery v6.0.4.5 ! thats just about it folks ! thanks a lot for your time .

Press thanks if i helped you .

Guys,to be honest,why in the world google has stopped the support for SGS2 back to 4.1.2 ? running custom ROMs on 4.2 or 4.3 shows us that the device is supporting greater versions of the Android. I just wonder...I got my SGS2 after i compared this phone with an iPhone 4 that i owned. After i saw that SGS2 is way better,i trade my iphone for s2. This device need more official support in my opinion. sorry if i post this a bit off-topic.

In terms of capacity yes its capable but the overall reason is MARKET STRATEGY by the manufacturer. OT.

Market Strategy is why I switched from IOS to Android. Apple and his main product sucks big time,Iphone 4 is less performant than an average android phone ( i keep telling iphone users that an huawei phone can beat an iPhone easy ) so whatta hell ? I understand that every manufacturer needs to make money,but shutting down the support for a 2 years phone in order to promote your latest devices is just unfair. THANK YOU XDA FORUM FOR EXISTING ! :victory:

Its still better and popular than any other 2 years old phone and even many latest phones. Samsung should not stop its development just because its a two years old phone its still a powerful, popular and capable device so it deserves more updates

you can find the latest cwm recovery in any latest kk rom available for our device ... the one i attached is an earlier version of cwm ... or you can flash @ Gustavo's kernel for cm11 , slimkat , or omni .. which i think i has the latest cwm recovery ( v6.0.4.7 )
All the best !
