Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum but not to AF. I spent a lot of time in the Samsung Transform Ultra forums with guys like MavrikMeercat and Chevanlol360. Great guys, but I have moved on to the GS2 and have some questions. A friend sent me his s2 when he upgraded to the s3, it came to me soft bricked with some issues. I have since been able to get it going and flashed the stock ICS 4.0.4 file. My question is this. Do I need to keep the phone unrooted until I activate the service with tmobile (later this month)? It already has a sim card in it, do I need to buy a new one or can they reactivate the current sim card? That's it from me for now, I'm sure you guys will be hearing from me again in the near future. Edit: I odin flashed the stock rom mentioned above and it is going through its initial boot sequence, but it's been doing it for about ten minutes now. All I have is the samsung logo pulsing blue. I know it's doing something, but should it take this long?
