    Default Galaxy S2 is (almost) dead. Only Download Mode

    Hi all,

    I tried to charge my GS2S and it went dead. Well, almost.

    It's stuck on the welcome screen. Won't go to Recovery Mode, but still goes to Download Mode.

    I've followed the instructions on here [link]http://www.theandroidsoul.com/clockworkmod-cwm-recovery-samsung-galaxy-s2-gt-i9100-android-4-4-kitkat-compatible/[/link]

    But got a "failed" result. I've tried three times at least and I get "failed" again and again.

    Any idea what could be wrong and how do I get around it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you actually have ClockworkMod Recovery installed on your phone? If not, I'd try this guide: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Also, remove your battery, lay it flat on a table, and see if it can spin freely. If so, it's probably going bad (bulging in middle), and needs to be replaced.

    Try using a different cable when installing CWM

    Thanks for the warm welcoming!

    I didn't have the ClockworkMod Recovery installed on my phone before it went dead.

    I can't get to Recovery Mode so the guide, which seems pretty good, can't help me. Wish I was in that situation.

    Will try another cable.
