Did I brick my Galaxy S2 ?
I'm a little nooby at all this, trying to learn better.
I started with a fully working, Galaxy S2, which I rooted ages ago. I did a factory reset on it, then the phone would not boot - it goot stuck at the Samsung Logo. (Probably due to the battery running out during the new user set up).
So I installed slimbean ROM 4.3 build 1 (put it on the SD card, installed by holding volume up+ power+ menu button).
After that, it still won't boot. This time, it got stuck on the SlimBean logo, instead a Samsung Logo.
So I installed Siyah-v3.3.2-CWM kernel. Now, after the first boot screen, it goes blank (no ROM boot screen).
Umm. Maybe I'm making more of a mess. But the most important thing is that I understand how this all works. Please don't send me to a guide, I've already read lots (they make a lot of assumtions about knowledge level, and are often really wordy which muddles things up in my mind.
I probably installed the wrong kernel for the version of slimrom I have.... hopefully I didn't brick the phone. (It still boots to the initial samsung logo, then shows the ICS Siyah Kernal screen, then it goes blank).
Help ! ?
