    Hey guys
    I think I f'ed up my galaxy s2 (I9100) completely.
    I followed a guide and tried to get android 4.4 to work on my phone... flashed rom via odin, restarted the phone and wiped data/factory reset and cache partition like the guide said.
    now to my problem... phone starts directly into cwm recovery (v5.8.1.8) and I have no clue how to get back to "normal"
    I have to admit I dont really know much about android and custom roms and stuff like that (wp user who just has a galaxy s2 to toy around with)

    I really hope someone can help me and thx to everyone trying

    Welcome to the forums. What ROM did you try flashing? The best way to try to fix this is to load a custom ROM for your exact model onto an SD card and flash that through CWM.

    That looks like the right ROM. But you need the whole file. The 2 links at the top are what you need to install. Odin most likely won't be able to do this. But you can install the ROM with CWM.

    I dropped the files onto my sd card but there is no restore from external sd card option in the backup/restore section

    You would want to install from SD card

    Sorry about the delay. I've grown to like TWRP. It's much more widely supported than CWM, even though CWM was first. As for messing with the code in the ROM, I have never tried that; Always been leery about doing things like that.

    As for if you are using the right ROM, I am pretty sure you are.

    I tried out deleted the asserts command like in the mentioned thread... looks like it worked for a lot of people but i still got status 7
    still dont know what the exact problem was but I ended up flashing this rom
