Key Points to Note
- WanamLite Android 4.1.2 XWLSD ROM and the instructions given in this guide are applicable for the international variant Galaxy S2 I9100 model only and will not work with any other device. Verify the device's model number by navigating to Settings > About Phone.
- Verify that the correct USB drivers are installed for the Galaxy S2 on the computer. Download Galaxy S2 I9100 USB drivers.
- Backup important data and settings on the phone using one of the recommended custom recovery tools such as ClockworkMod (CWM) or TWRP, which creates a complete image of your existing phone set up. Avoid using either Samsung KIES or ROM manager for data backup as they lack flexible options.
- Make sure that USB Debugging mode is enabled on the phone by navigating to Settings > Developer Options (if the device is running Android 4.0 or later) or Settings > Applications > Development (if the device is running Android 2.3.6 or earlier).
- Ensure that the device is factory unlocked (not locked to a specific carrier) and has at least 85 percent battery charge.
- Do a Dalvik cache Wipe before continuing from the recovery mode.
- Samsung KIES will not recognise the phone after installing the firmware, as it is a custom release.
- Verify that the device is rooted with CWM recovery pre-installed on it.
