I installed the latest Cyanogenmod 10.1 nightly on my S2 - it's like having a new phone. So awesome.

I'm running it as well. Other than some video playback quality issues it's brilliant.

So Joker I'm interested in your comments on the i9100t telecom update thread. I use a i9100t on 2degrees with fast dormancy turned on, I am interested in possibly flashing they update via odin, and test the modem to see what it is like and change back to the dopl4 if required. My real question is, is it possible  to change back to the official telecom rom if it is released and would that then allow me to update via kies from then on?

Anything is pretty much possible with these phones...

I'm currently running 4.2.2 Tongue Out  http://www.slimroms.net

We're about to release a 2nd stable build (tomorrow morning NZDT)... cunningly called build.1... (the team decided to rationalise the build numbers... mostly just to confuse people I think Wink)

But I digress... to answer your question, on the i9100, the kernel (includes recovery), ROM and modem are all effectively separate... you can flash kernel+recovery and it doesn't affect the modem or ROM, assuming of course they are compatible... likewise, you can flash the modem, and not change the kernel and/or ROM.

Doing things in Odin can be a little different tho... as the official updates tend to come as a single file that does Kernel, Modem and ROM all at once...

But that is the cool thing about these phones... you can always get back to wherever you want to be Smile

If they release the official Telecom ROM, there is no reason why you can't download it... SamMobile will be the best place to find it... in their firmwares section, you can get releases for most countries/carriers etc... awesome resource!

Then you can flash it via Odin... and voilà... Stock Telecom ROM as though you had just bought it.  However, I wouldn't expect to be able to update via Kies tho, technically, yes it would work.. BUT the chances of there being an update after this would be somewhere between very very very VERY small and none Sealed

Yes but it will be manual odin flash and you may (unlikely) lose all settings.

Totally up to you. Wanamlite 14.1 is basically stock with root and a few highlights

Thanks for the feedback, will flashing the stock rom up my rom flash counter? Get the yellow triangle thing? My biggest hesitation is that the phone is still under warranty.

Oh totally... there are massive amounts of ROMs available...

Stock Samsung, Modified Stock (like Wanamlite etc), and fully custom AOSP (Android Open Source Project aka. pure Google) based things like Slim, CyanogenMod, AOKP etc etc...

And you can always move from one to the other... Granted, you will probably lose settings and app data, but apps like Titanium Backup (TiBu) can help with that :)

This is why, IMHO, Android > iOS... 


And you can always fix the triangle with TriangleAway! Wink
