    I get status 7 errors when installing and the installation is aborted.
    Deleted the first lines in the updater script as found on YouTube where the model checking is done. Still no luck.
    Any ideas?

    Camera HD recording not working on this rom on I9100. any suggestions to fix this?

    I solved the problem with the status 7 errors. See my former post. It turned out that my CWM was just outdated. Upgraded to the latest version for the S2 with KitKat support and after that all went smoothly.
    My battery live increased with at least 50%. Nice job!

    Any ideas how to change the save location for the camera. It is now saving to internal memory. I reformatted the sd card with SD card formatter. I can mount the sd1 card in CWM. I can access the card when the S2 is connected to my computer, but nowhere I can find a setting like in KitKat to change the save location!
