  1. 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?

  2. 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 It turned out that my CWM was just outdated.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!

  3. 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!

  4. To get Google App Store back, you have to install Google Apps back on the device. You do it the same way that you installed the custom ROM. Just remember to get the Gapps version for the version of android 5.0 or 5.1 etx

  5. Flashed the rom successfully, But from booting i am receiving msgs that play store not working. tried to flash different gapps but no result.. Unable to download anything from Google play store and failed to sync with google. not even able to add google account.

  6. well I run wipe data comands now I am not able to boot my phone i already have the custom rom and installed its recovery mode but not able to install this rom from sdcard getting md5 does not have contents

    please help
