New SGS2 2.5.11 - unfortunately, the process has stopped

Mar 28, 2012

I have huge problem :-/ I had version 2.4.20 before and suddenly (today) my phone kept rebooting on and on, couldn't stop it.
So I thought I would solve this problem if I download 2.5.11 version. I did that, copy to SD (over card reader, cause I couldn't do it over phone), I've cleared dalvik and partition cache and install new zip version.

Now I have new problem after installing 2.5.11 version. When I turn it on, I need to enter code of my phone (that's ok), but it doesn't read my SIM card (to ask me for PIN, to log on to network).. and it keeps showing me alert "unfortunately, the process has stopped" and I can't do anything.. even copy catlog and send it over wi-fi or something.

I could only make screenshot (see attachment)

What to do?

I have the same issue however not 100 percent of the time. I had to keep rebooting until it works again. Wiping cache and dalvik cache does not help.

This is true but I just offered a suggestion as I do the same thing every week but at least it eliminates 85% of the headaches caused by not properly flashing the rom (though it may work for some just wiping the cache/divak as each phone is different) the other 12% are the know issues with MIUI, like lag on the lock-screen with old wallpaper sometimes appearing,moving apps to ext.SD and the other bugs but that will be corrected in time, the other 8% is caused by me..trying new things.. but would you rather try what I suggested and see if it corrects your problem or live with the fc's. :rolleyes:

well "thanx" for advice ..
I did format system and I did factory reset. Now when I want to install zip from sdcard I'm getting error:

-- Installing: /sdcard/MIUI/

Nandroid backup in recovery? MIUI Backup? There's a lot of tools to make a backup before wipe.

This error:
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-I9100" ||    getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-I9100" ||    getprop("ro.product.device") == "galaxys2" ||    getprop("ro.product.device") == "galaxys2" ||
E:Error in /sdcard/MIUI/
means that you either do not have the right device to flash or.. after you wiped /system you don't have build.prop in /system so the getprop function fails. It tries to read the file which doesn't exist.
If so you can try disabling assert scripting in recovery (just search for this function) or... you can open (but without unpacking!!) and open file /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script in text editor (Notepad++) and delete first 2 lines:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-I9100" ||
      getprop("") == "GT-I9100" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "galaxys2" || getprop("") == "galaxys2");
Save and put file back to zip. This should allow you to install zip.
