    Who gave you the funny idea ?
    A.)Samsung phones have locked bootloaders
    B.)It is next to impossible to install ClockworkMod recovery
    C.If you do try to install clockworkmod recovery via ROM manager ,all you well get is a sliding decorative brick

    So ,no, you cant install Cyanogen Mod 7 .Even if CLockworkMod recovery worked ,there is no CM 7.0 port for Galaxy 551. .And it is irreversible.

    Try Arkas which is our ROM .Though it is still Froyo ,it is at par with VillainROM.
    Custom framework,custom boot animation,default ADW launcher , ext3/4 support ,overclocked to 667Mhz (default is 600)

    Nope I dont have any video tutorial .
    This is the basic stuff you should know about samsung flashing firmwares
    Back up all necessary apps using Titanium Backup
    Back up contacts to SD card using Export feature

    A.) :-A site where all the stock aka normal firmware 's are available.Download a stock firmware,OPS script,Odin from that place and also the Guide to flashing .
    B.)Take a deep breath ,accept what you are going to do is gonna brick warranty.
    C.)Use Odin ,which is also available on the site ,to Flash the phone according to guide .
    D.)After you have gained confidence to flash go to the root section of this to know more about flashing Arkas

    I've flashed Cyanogen mod 7 beta a on my Samsung Galaxy 551..
    It's really great work and works like a charm
    but ...
    there is a bug in the camera while using any other program that deals with camera like "Camera Zoom FX" or any barcode scanner program ...
    The problem is that the screen is splitted into 2 identical halves separated by a strange line ...
    But when I shoot a photo, it's stored correctly
    On the other hand, the barcode scanners can't detect the codes correctly due to this problem
    Is there any help related to this issue ?
