      Hi,

      I had the same issue. I think it happens either when the wrong recovery image or wrong cm11 snapshot. Some startup memory location gets corrupted.

      I suggest you FIRST restore your devices to factory setting using this tutorial here .
      http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s2/development/guide-fix-unflashable-soft-bricked-t1619571

      This way you can be sure your devices does not suffer from some more complicated ailment (e.g some permanent memory corruption)

      After that you can proceed with the steps in installing CM11. Also ensure that you have the right roms … GT-I9100 is NOT the same as GT-I9100G. !!!

      Regards,

      V.

        Hi! thank you for replying.

        I did what you said now I am on 4.1.2 official ROM but whenever I try a CM it doesn’t work! I had CM10 I tried to install CM11, now I can’t go back to CM10 ( just official ROM that works ) I tried reset/factory settings .. Do you think my phone can no more handle it? or it’s just something missing

        PS: I downloaded CM11 for GT-I9100G

        Regards

          Hi,

          Good to know that you have the right CM11 rom.
          Now, lets troubleshoot a bit.
          At what point did the installation process fail ? Which clockwork recovery version did you use ? Please note that CM11 can only be flashed using a recent clockwork recovery and I recommended PhilzTouch 6.19.13 in the article above.
          The rest of the process should be fairly straightforward.

          Let me know how it goes.

            Hi! Thank you for the fast reply 😉

            The installation go nice with no problems in fact, but when it’s finished I get stuck on samsung logo ( no bootloop = just stuck no restart ). I tried to restart it many times, take battery off .. I use philztTouch 6.19.3 for i9100g ( philz_touch_6.19.3-i9100g.zip )

            I make sure I did the wipe/factory reset

            Regards

    Hi, I tried to follow your steps but I cannot go beyond step 4.C. “zadig” doesn’t recognize my device at all when I am in the download mode. However, when I start it normally, then zadig can see it. what might be the issue ?!
