hello all,  ive scoured xda forum's also youtube vids  and theres alot of conflicting answers,   where  am i at  phone  i9100 xxplx  baseband,  i have just rooted this with chainfires exynos tool,  so i dont have a cwm installed to install  say syra   and jellybam

Am i on the right track?  i have codexz 5.5 cwm  do i flash this with odin?    then from a cwm boot  install the kernal/syra  ?   then do the jellybam from same place?

i thought if help came from a nzer  it may be better and less conflicting       Many thanx  phil

if you are rooted then most of the hard stuff is done, sorry not on S2 anymore so not sure but just find chainfires CWM version and flash that no need to use odin then choose the Rom you like the most and follow the instructions. If you are coming from ICS to JB you may have to flash stock first but just read up on the Rom you choose first as they will say in instructions. Choose one of the more popular ones like Wanam or Omega as they have good support

Can't stress enough about doing a backup so when you have CWM recovery back it up that way you can always go back also you can try most custom Roms

my mistake yes you do need to flash by Odin.

Don't worry the most stressing part is the first time so if you have done the reading, as you seem to, then just follow instructions and you'll be fine
