    You cannot flash a kernel via Recovery unless you are properly rooted to begin with. See post #1...

    The only way to root your phone is by using Odin on your PC and the steps in posts #1, #2 and #3 of the Rooting Galaxy S2 - Dummies Guide as I described in my earlier reply to you... which you quote!

    You cannot flash a kernel via Recovery until you have correctly rooted your phone first, which was not the case in your post #669.

    Upgrading only every six months now it seems. Upgraded to NeatROMLite LSS and Siyah 6.0B4 and it's a great combination.

    I found Siyah 6.0B5 didn't go into deep sleep and Dorimanx 8.19 was unstable. NeatROMLite required uninstalling some framework thing from system/app that kept crashing to make it stable.

    Now it's all working fine with great battery life using Ironass's STweaks settings - thanks Ironass!

    I too have found siyah v6.0 b5 less battery friendly than siyah v6.0 b4.
    I'm currently on NeatROM Lite LSW and with siyah v6.0 b5 I was getting max 15/16 hrs at most.
    Just reverted back to siyah v6.0b4 and and it's getting better. Gonna wait a couple of days more before deciding anything.
    I've always been a siyah fan though.

    Agreed avushkaa! :thumbup:

    Both Syd and I reckon that the Siyah 6.0b4 is better than the b5.

    Siyah 6b4 is giving me 2-3% battery drain overnight.
    Whereas it was only 1% with Philz.

    I think I'm going to flash Philz now.

    While what you said sure is true....is it worth the switch? What version are you currently using?
