I've got a Galaxy S that I want to use for Cyanogenmod. I went through the

Android 2.3" while my phone had Android 2.2. The result is that it just
flashes on the kernel boot screen.
I flashed my Galaxy S2 on Sunday. I had to do it twice(!) before
Cyanogenmod would boot properly, so maybe give that a try first.
I don't see why the original Android version matters - you wipe system,
data, cache, ... anyway.
I can still get into download mode so all is not lost
In that case nothing is really lost.
I tried getting other zImage files from the above, I tried the 2011 March copy
of Android 2.2 from the "America Australia Samsung I9000 Firmwares" section of
I also tried the 2.3.5 from the above. Neither worked.
Any suggestions on what I should try next? The phone came from Optus and was
running Android 2.2 when I got it.
The Android version in this case doesn't matter, as it flashes every
last bit of the phone. What's important is to get the right Version
according to your phones reginionality.
Did you by any chance write down the letter codes of your original
firmware before you started flashing it?
Maybe it's not the Australian version.
I bought my S2 at crazysales.com.au and got the german version.
If you don't know your original letter codes, I suggest asking the folks
and cyanogenmod if they know how to find it out anyway.
One last question - after flashing back one of the "original" firmwares,
could you still access ClockWork recovery? If so, you're phone is not
back to its original state yet, otherwise it would do a Samsung factory
Hope that helps!
