I've taken a backup of the apps etc, but the phone isn't rooted. This is the wonder of ODIN.

Hi world. I have a pretty stock Telecom i9100 and want to flash it with a ROM to get OTG support for a USB keyboard. Any ROM suggestions (prob a kernel issue but I understand most ROMs change the kernel)

GT-i9100T
Android: 2.3.3 
Kernel: 2.6.35.7-i9100TD0KH1-CL443486root@DELL141 #2
Build: Gingerbread.D0KH1

I may be wrong but I think OTG is out of the box on the S2. You do need a OTG cable which are cheap as chips.

I have a OTG cable and the phone is not recognising the keyboards I have tried. Reading around it seems that the firmware needs to provide support.

Also, not much luck with memory sticks, I get a message saying that they require too much current...

Not going well, and hence the call for a better ROM.

The newer WanamLite builds look like they include the AOSP clock app rather than the Samsung clock app. Like you, I far prefer the Samsung one.

I've uploaded the Samsung clock app to here. Download it, then use a root-capable file manager (e.g. ES File Explorer) to copy it to your phone's /system/app folder.


The download link doesn't work for me :(

That would be IIS returning File Not Found errors because it doesn't know how to handle .apk files. Stupid IIS.

I've just made the necessary change on the server. The link should be working now.

Hi guys im after some EXPERT help, done the most noob thing EVER.  :|

After running Darkys hood droid on my SGS2 for 4 days it was running bad, decided to flash another darkys kernel to see if i could get it going any better (battery life was meh, wasnt as good as my previous version of GB)

It got stuck at the SGS boot screen and couldnt flash via CWM cause i couldnt get a rom on the internal SD, nor the external SD (was just saying file not found)

So i cranked up Odin and reflashed what i thought was my Gingerbread rom on my computer which was infact......

Darkys Rom 10.2 :| 

plugged in my phone and put it in Download mode and hit start, it said starting Pit please do not turn off target etc, but the odin progress bar didnt load, so i exited Odin.

I have NO download mode now, and i do have a Jig from my SGS1 but im plugging it in and download mode is not functioning.

Are the Jigs the same between the SGS1 and SGS2.

Has someone got another Jig i could try.

Terrible terrible nub story i feel embarrassed explained.

I need helped not mocked :D

guess my fones fudged, cheers for listening.

I had one, since misplaced, and used on my S1 and 2 so assume they are good for both. I did read somewhere on darky's about putting on wrong rom but can't find the thread. I'll keep looking.

Really to sorry to hear this - you certainly won't get any mockery from me. . . . .it must've been an awful feeling when you realized what you'd done.

Sorry to say I think you're hard-bricked - if you flash a different device's ROM, then everything gets written to different addresses on the NAND, so the bootloaders are wiped, and re-written in the wrong place, which is why you can't get into download mode even with a jig (they're the same for both the i9000 and i9100 IIRC).

In short: either take it back to your retailer, and tell them it died while you were using Kies, or check out JTAG repairs on youtube.

Good luck, and let us know how you get on! 




Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone - kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.

SGSIII
ROM: WanamLite v1.3    Kernel: Ninphetamine v1.1.0   Modem: DXLEA

SGSII (Now belongs to SWMBO)
ROM: WanamLite v12     Kernel: Siyah v3.3.2   Modem: BVLPB

SGS
 (Cat's chew toy)

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

Like others have said, you will need to send your phone back to the factory to get fixed, or use one of the jtag services.

The jog is the same for i9000 and i9100.

Damn...
