Just to test the returning to stock method. After a successful stock flash via Odin I got caught in a boot-loop. The 'S' logo at boot runs for a few seconds, then returns to the 'Samsung Galaxy SII T989D' then back to the 'S' logo again, etc, etc. Any ideas why?
To add; I was able to reflash Mr. X's Telus ROM and have a working phone again so at least I don't have a brick.
I followed your instructions below:
1. To install the stock rom file you will need to first extract it. Use the password above
2. Launch Odin. Press PDA and Select the stock recovery file (tar.md5 file) folder you extracted. Make sure re-partition is NOT selected (see the pic above).
3. Restart your phone in download mode as before (see above how to do this) and wait for the yellow com
4. Press Start and flash back the phone to original state
