Samsung Galaxy S2 (Intl) Goes Into System Recovery - Error [Fixed!]

112 posts in this topic

When I want to install CM with the installer, the phone loads down the data, reboots and goes into recovery menu "Android System recovery <3e>". There it shows an error:

E: invalid command argument

E: invalid command argument

# MANUAL MODE #

-- Applying Multi-CSC...

Applied the CSC-Code : DTM

Successfully applied multi-CSC

When I restart my old Android 4.1 shows again.

What can I do now?

Same for me.

I add a picture to show how it looks : https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BY6XAk_IAAAcu3P.jpg:large

When I read this message "Applied the CSC-Code : DTM; Successfully applied multi-CSC", I thought everything would be okay, since the CSC (country code I guess) is fixed.

However, every single time I want to install with CM Installer, I will go through the same error.

Does anybody have any ideas ? Thanks !

I have this same problem. I would assume one of these options need to be selected:

- apply update from ADB

- apply update from external storage

- apply update from cache

- wipe data/factory

however selecting one of them might interrupt the installer process.

any suggestions?

I am having the exact same issue.

Running the installer from Windows 7 onto the international S2 (Optus, if it matters).

I hope this gets resolved soon.

Good day.

I am in the same boat.

Windows 7 x64 and Android 4.1.2 (Stock Samsung)

Looks like it is doing this for everyone. Would like to hear more details from the Devs.

I experienced the same issue. I rebooted my computer, then had to wait quite a while until it installed drivers for the phone. When the drivers finished installing, I tried to run the installer again and this time it connected without any issues (of course then I got the recovery error mentioned in the other thread, but that's a different story :P).

For the record, I got it to work both connecting as Camera and as Multimedia device.
