THIS PAGE IS FOR THE SAMSUNG GALAXY SKYROCKET SG2 LTE: MODEL# "SGH-I727" FOR ATT & "SGH-I727R" FOR ROGERS.

THIS IS NOT THE SAME PHONE AS THE FIRST GENERATION SG2 I9100, FLASHING ROMS/KERNELS/RECOVERIES FROM HERE WILL HARD BRICK THE I9100.

The Skyrocket Has Four Main Partitions > Recovery - Radio - Kernel - System.
All Custom Roms Only Have The Kernel And The System , Which I/We Refer To As "The Rom".
No Custom Roms Include The Recovery And/or Radio Other Than Full Stock Firmwares.
The Recovery Is A Seperate Standalone File/partition And As Such It Is Not Tied/linked/combined To The Rom And/or Kernel.
Samsung Made The Skyrocket Very Easy To Flash Custom Roms And/or Root The Phone
There Is No Bootloader To Unlock.
The First And Foremost Thing You Need To Do Is Install A Custom Recovery TWRP - HOW TO HERE.
Once You Have TWRP Installed Then You Can Install/Flash Roms, Radios, Kernels, Recoveries, Root The Phone, Etc.

Newbs B4 You Flash Or Are Having A Problem:

We Can Tell By Your Question That You Havent Done Any Of The Above And You Might/Will Get Flamed.
WE DO LIKE TO HELP BUT PLEASE DO ABOVE FIRST
Once You Know What You Are Doing And Are Stumped At A Certain Problem, Post In The Q&a Forum.
Problems And Questions Are To Be Posted In The "Q & A Forum" Not The Dev Forum !! Unless Its Directly Related To A Particular Rom, Then Post It In The Thread For That Rom If The Dev Allows Such Questions.

|Read This b4 posting | THE MOST Common Questions Answered HERE |

Do Not Ask For A Which Is The "BEST" Rom Or Any Adjective Thereof For A Rom As The Mod Will Close It, Read About Them In The Dev Forum And Decide On Your Own.

3: STOCK FIRMWARES: ODIN FLASHABLE - FULL/COMPLETE/ STOCK
HOWTO RESTORE TO STOCK USING ODIN .. By Vincom

THESE ARE EXACT COPIES OF ROGERS AND ATT STOCK FIRMWARE'S w/STOCK RECOVERY, RADIO, KERNEL, BLOATWARE AND ALL.
YOU CAN FLASH ANYONE OF THESE TO EITHER ATT OR ROGERS PHONES.
USE 7-ZIP OR WINRAR TO EXTRACT.
YOU WILL NOW HAVE 2 FILES UNZIPPED, ONE IS THE TAR FILE WITH A MD5 EXTENSION(do not change the name) WHICH YOU USE WITH ODIN, THE OTHER IS A DLL WHICH WE DONT NEED:
NEW: GOTO SAMMOBILE.COM/FIRMWARES ENTER I727 AS MODEL
YOU NEED TO CREATE A FREE ACCOUNT B4 DOING THAT
NOTE: DEC 2013: SOME FIRMWARES ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON SAMMOBILE SO IM HOSTING A FEW OF THEM AS NOTED BELOW:


3a: STOCK FIRMWARES: twrp/cwm flashable untouched stock roms



4: RADIOS/MODEMS
RADIO aka MODEM aka BASEBAND=Amss.bin & Mdm.bin.
The Radio Does Not Get Wiped During A Cwm/twrp Wiping Process.
The Radio Does Not Get Backed Up By Cwm/twrp Backup(nandroid) Method.
For Custom Roms The Radio Is A Seperate Flashable File And Is Not Included In Any Custom Rom.
What Ever Radio You Had Before Flashing A Rom Will Still Be Your Radio.
What Ever Radio You Had Before Restoring A Backup Will Still Be Your Radio.
Flashing A Full Stock Firmware W/Odin Will Replace Your Existing Radio (Amss.bin & Mdm.bin) And Ril/Csc Files.
Ril And Csc Files Do Get Backed Up & Restored Through Recovery.
Some Flashable Radio Zip Files Come With Ril And/or Csc Files - Since They Are Restored And As Such May Improve<>Impede Functionality Of A New and/or Existing Radio When Restoring A Backup.
Afaik Mohan_kr's Radios Do Not Include Ril/Csc Files.
Roger's radios are RAT Unlocked, which means the Network Mode in settings will work.
ATT radios are RAT Locked, Network Mode changes will have NO effect.
ATT And Rogers Customers Can Use Each Others Radios
Flash Radio Twice W/out Cable Plugged In
WHAT IS RIL: A Radio Interface Layer (RIL) is a layer in an operating system which provides an interface to the hardware's radio and modem. AFAIK every rom has it.

WHAT IS CSC: Only Included In Stock Firmwares And Afaik Is Not Included In Any Cm Based Roms.

i727(r) freg's:
2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
4G Network LTE 700 MHz Class 17 / 1700 / 2100

4G=LTE ON CM - ON CM AND ITS DERIVATIVES, AOKP, AOCP, PARANOID, ETC, THE 4G ICON IS THE LTE SIGNAL.
ROMS BASED ON STOCK AND CUSTOM GB & ICS can use GB, ICS & JB RADIOS.
ROMS EQUAL TO/OR GREATER THAN CM 10.2 MUST USE JELLYBEAN (JB) 4.1.2 RADIOS.

FOR UNLOCKED PHONES TO BE USED ON CARRIERS OTHER THAN ATT/ROGERS: DEPENDS ON RADIO/MODEM YOU ARE ON AND THE FREQUENCY AND APN'S(for data & mms) REQUIRED BY YOUR CARRIER.

5: RECOVERIES
HOW TO INSTALL A CUSTOM RECOVERY
ZIP FILES >flash within your current "custom" recovery
TAR.MD5 > flash with odin - use if on stock recovery but will work on any recovery, stock or custom - auto checks integrity(md5) of file before flashing it.
TAR > flash with odin, DOES NOT auto check integrity(md5) of file before flashing it - manually check hash b4 flashing.
IMG > use adb or read this or this
fyi - once u have twrp/cwm installed via odin its easier to just use zip method going forward.

thanks i had already put it in.
but I'm thinking to not even put stuff thats old or unused or even ics leaks, with two official stock ics's out dont see the point of keeping the leak based roms around(unless i hear otherwise) on the main page and just link it to another post so this will be for more relevant developments and less cluttered.
and i might still link some good old gb roms on the main page as it seems users still like gb
what u guys think, good or bad

im still waiting on the mod, i dont want to waste my time with this if he says no

I would put the all Roms still being developed in the op. The old or unused info just leave them out. Some of the Rome built from releases are still being worked on like the Embryo rom. All the root info and some of the gb roms keep also. Just my 2¢. Great job so far.
