ClockworkMod Install driving me crazy...
I sincerely apologize if this is in the wrong section or has been answered elsewhere.
I am going crazy! For the past five hours I have been trying in vain to root my Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-I757M. The worst part is that I cannot even pass the stage of flashing the ClockworkMod.
I have downloaded Odin and it detects my phone just fine. I click on the boot loader option and select the .tar file. I click start and everything goes just fine. Odin returns a pass and says everything was a success.
However, when I try and boot from the recovery mode (after allowing the device to reboot), it boots to the stock recovery manager every single time. I scoured the internet and found that if you allow the phone to fully boot sometimes it can overwrite the flash. So I unchecked the auto restart button and when the flash is reported as finished I removed the battery and attempted to boot to the recovery. This time I get the “software update error”.
I have 12 counts on the software counter now. I have tried just about every angle and tons of different file variations. I even tried to select the files from the PDA option. Nothing! I have followed at least three very extensive walkthroughs TO THE LETTER, nothing.
Can any of you genius’ out there help me out? Not being able to figure this out is going to drive me nuts.
