Did you do a FULL wipe (data/dalvik/partition) before flashing to stock ROM?

With power off... Hold volume UP button + Home button + Power button and see if you can reboot into Recovery. You may then be able to select wipe for cache/dalvik and under Advanced.. partition wipe. You should then be able to boot up and restore your app's/data via Titanium Backup (if you have it).

1. You will need to sign into your Google account to re-sync Contacts, Calendar, etc.

2. You can press my "Thanks" button until your finers bleed.

3. Go and sort your "friend" out who said you did not need to wipe.

4. Read up on everything to do with rooting, ROM's, flashing and restoring... before you do it!

Sorry, I don't use BetterBatteryStats, Juice Defender or Task Killers. I tend to find that most of them are a waste of time or use more power than they save.

The only thing I do when I flash a new ROM is to re-calibrate my battery using BatteryCalibration, free from the Market. See here:-

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.nema.batterycalibration&feature=sea rch_result

Are you not going to root your phone now that you are on stock ROM?

You could try booting into Recovery, (you know how to do that), and using the volume key, go down to "Advanced" and press the Home key. Then you should have a menu that contains, "Wipe Battery Stats". Navigate to it with the volume key and select it with the Home key. Then reboot you phone and charge it until it is 100% charged + half an hour. This will reset your battery calibration to your new ROM. It only needs to be done if you change ROM's.

Hope this helps.

See... that wasn't so hard.

The world is now your lobster!

You can download Titanium Backup Pro, Battery Calibration, etc; etc:

Go onto the SGSII ROM forum now and start reading about custom ROM's etc.

You are obviously rooted as you have SuperUser and Titanium Backup Pro is functioning.

Hi guys,

I was running the latest version of VillainROM and after trying to flash stock kernel and rebooting, I am getting a BOOT LOOP at the VillainROM startup screen. I tried connecting to Odin in download mode but ODIN is not recognizing the phone. (I can get into CWM recovery and Odin download modes, but odin is not recognizing the phone!)

Please help out. I forgot to take backups using CWM before installing the kernel and now I am not able to connect to the PC either. Is there any way of flashing back the old kernel/ROM using external memory card? Will the device be recognized by Odin if I use a USB jig? Any suggestions? I would be really grateful! Thanks.

PS - Wiped all my cache (Including Dalvik cache), formatted SD card and still stuck in boot loop!

Hopefully you still have the original Villian ROM .zip file on your SDCard (not the external sdcard).

Just go into Recovery mode > install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sdcard... navigate to your original Villian ROM zip and install it. Reboot after installation.

Hope this works.

Reflash the CF-Root kernel - it sounds as if the CWM Recovery hasn't installed correctly.

The link Ironass provided above the video is the kernel. Reflash with Odin and you should be good to go.

Hi Slug,

Odin is not recognizing my phone :-( It was recognizing it before. Suddenly it stopped recognizing the phone!

Ironass, thanks for your advice above on the boot loop - nice and concise cheers. After i took the battery out and rebooted into recovery I wiped user data and cache and it stopped the boot loop. now i'm going to flash cfroot again (rooted a couple of weeks ago and tried 2 roms but neither as stable or smooth as stock).
