Recoveries and Kernels by Tegrak
A word here .. The recent two official updates (Android 4.0.3 and Android 4.0.4) where followed within 24 hours by new Tegrak Recoveries and Kernels for all three devices. The recovery keeps getting better and the kernel is as stable as the official one. This is a No Nonsense, rock solid product.
This developer deserves a big hand and a generous thank you!!

Donate to the development via this link http://pspmaster.tistory.com/31

Tegrak's latest recovery and kernel builds are posted on the Korean language blog here
http://pspmaster.tistory.com/176. It is virtually impossible to register at tistory atm (a division of Daum but blogging accounts are by invitation only). To comment or ask anything of tegrak, follow @tegrak on twitter.
In order to help you locate things on the Korean site I have listed the content which is currently available.

Scroll down to the bottom half of the page on pspmaster, and find the Bold Headings as listed below. There is a link below each heading which allows you to unfold/fold the previous builds.

PLEASE take care to check the Device code E120 followed by the S, K, or L
The first one here is for the E110S -- the SII LTE (not the SII HD device) --->
Look also at the last code before the .recovery.tar (in the case of the Odin PDA file)
or the .zip (in the case of the flashable zip for the kernel)
This is the FIRMWARE code. Match Device, and Firmware codes with the information found in Settings, About Phone on your Android.
 
This is to help you find your way around the Korean language site (try Chrome) .. or just look out for the ROM version

Galaxy SII HD-LTE - SHV-E120K ~ MIUI V5 by m Bubble XiaoMi-2 MIUI-V5 (miuiandroid) Nexus 7 Carbon ROM

Firmware collection:
Since buying this phone, I have collected links to custom and stock firmware.
If you wish to return the phone to a stock ROM or upgrade from using Odin instead of Kies,
Scroll to the end of this post where you will find tips and links to official Firmware.

If you have read the post about rooting the stock firmware, you are familiar with Tegak's recoveries.
To install CyanogenMod to the SHV-E120K you will need a CWM based recovery.
Flash the CWM-based recovery from ODIN the same way you flash the Tegrak recovery.

CWM Recovery 6.0.36 for SHV-E120K
Required for flashing LeeSL0416 Stable Cyanogenmod 10.1.3 ROM
find the download link at this page

http://m.blog.naver.com/leesl0416/40196603942

Download the tar file and flash via Odin

(Find cwm recovery updates on Leesl0416 naver blog.. links below)

CWM Touch Recovery 6.0.35 for SHV-E120K (by Cholokei)
Find the download link (top right hand side - small green arrow)
Download the tar file (not the first file.zip! Save it to PC and flash via odin

http://blog.naver.com/leesl0416/40194961855

TIP: Use CWM to Backup the stock Firmware which you have rooted using the Tegrak recovery and kernels, or any other Firmware that is working.
Take note that tegrak recoveries change with each Firmware. The result is that restoration of tegrak backups made with older recoveries do not always restore correctly with more recent recoveries.
Note also that the Tegrak backups will not restore in CWM and the CWM backups will not restore in CWM!!

MIUI V5 --
ROM: MIUI 3.8.30 (MIUI V5) by mipp
Android 4.1.2 JZ054K
Devices: ROMs available for the SHV-E120K, SHV-E120L and SHV-E120S
Find m bubble's thread at GFAN.COM (login to see hidden content)
8-30 update update framework, integrating official package, streamlining part of the system app, add some practical app, replacement comes with wallpaper.

Important steps -- >>

1. From CWM recovery, flash the ROM then flash miuiandroid gapps (small) for the Android 4.1.2
2.Outside of China you may have problems logging into Google sites like G+ . to fix this, first alter Permissions (it's an app in the system's folder of the MIUI) .. change to "enable root permissions". Use root explorer to navigate to /system/etc and open hosts file. Open it as a text file and delete all the special content except 127.0.0.1 localhost in the first line of that file then login to all google sites
3. I have experimented with 4G LTE here in Korea and Getting 4G to work requires 2 things
Install Toggle2G ( link here) Check the first 6 boxes. DO NOT check the 8th BOX because this appears to prevent switching to 3G whenever you place a call! Importantly, set the Low Power Network to WCDMA only (3G) and the Fast Network to any suitable option that includes LTE. Test the setup by engaging 4G or LTE and try to place a call - If the call ends, it may be your phone isn't switching to 3G. In this case you might have to upgrade your baseband (or downgrade to a previous baseband). You do this by flashing the latest or a former official firmware (see the end of this post for firmwares)
Unfortunately, Bluetooth doesn't work on the K version

ROMS for ODIN flashing
Unroot: Stock Firmware, grabbed from Kies
Pre-rooted stock: customised ROMS fix SMS issues etc
Other Custom ROMs http://bbs.gfan.com/...518040-1-1.html

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Official + Stock-based customised Firmware - stored at Kingsoft Disk ( kuaipan.cn )

Use this link when you register and help me gain storage capacity

If you don't read Chinese, I suggest using Chrome and/or download How TO use Kaiupan PDFfor help at Kingsoft Kuaipan.cn storage site.

The Stock firmware can be a life saver if your device has started to malfunction with custom roms.
You might also want to use the Odin flashing method to upgrade the stoick firmware, instead of using Kies which is often problematic. I have grabbed firmware from Kies temp folder and share it here for those of you who might need it.

To use odin, you must first install Kies, making sure the drivers are all updated correctly.
Odin should recognise your device when the device is set to Download mode.

Note -- If you are upgrade using Kies from FC02 (gingerbread firnmware) you will discover that Kies first pushes the upgrade Android 4.0.4 [VB28] then the Android 4.1.2 [MD2] firwmare. My advice is to do the same if you flash using Odin. From Gingerbread ROM, first flash VB28 then MD2

Odin flash this UPGRADE ->>> VB28 - as the first step from Gingerbread to Jellybean firmware
SHV-E120K Android 4.0.4 -- SHV-E120K.VB28 Official Not rooted

!!Please check the first listed firmware if you are upgrading from Gingerbread!!

ROOTING procedure
Thanks to a26196030
1. Install the stock firmware (gingerbread or ICS) Via Kies or download it and flash with Odin
2. Find out your device/firmware in the About Phone section (Settings/about phone)
Or enter *#12343# from your dialer
Then get the latest Tegrak build which matches exactly your firmware. Find the recoveries and kernels (and Odin software) here AT pspmaster.tistory
If you haven't installed Odin yet, do so now.
If you are on Linux, then run Odin in Virtual Box.

REMEMBER TO download and flash the correct recovery for your device-FIRMWARE

Save the Tegrak.-Recovery.tar to your PC

Save the Tegrak-Kernel.zip to SDCARD/tegrak/update

Download SU.Busybox.Installer.zip posted in the thread here AT bbs.gfan. Or get it from here - At the Link, Go to File, Crtl+s (Download the ZIP .. NOT separate parts of the zip)
(Thanks to the poster at bb.gfan for the zip)

Save this to your phone sdcard/tegrak/update

3. If you have adb working already, it's easiest to engage your phone to download mode using adb command:
turn phone on - set to USB DEBUGGING mode (Gingerbread: settings/applications/development - in ICS: settings/developer options/)
comnect USB cable from phone to pc, open a terminal and enter ::
"adb reboot download"
- if for some reason you can't use ADB ->>
power the phone off then press and hold VOL DOWN + HOME + PWR buttons simultaneously until the warning screen displays
(Hit volume up at that screen if necessary) this engages Download mode. "Odin mode" should be shown in red at the top

3. Open Odin on your PC (Run it inside VirtualBox on a Linux Computer) - connect the phone to pc - Odin will show successful connection with a yellow block displaying the port number.

4. Click PDA and browse and select the recovery.tar which you have saved on the PC.
*** Double check now that you have the correct recovery to match your device model (E120K - E120S - E120L) This is probably the most important match you should be sure about!! ***
*** The firmware indicated on the recovery tar file name should also match the firmware on your device.
After making sure
Click the Start on Odin and wait ....... ..

DO NOT DISCONNECT PHONE &amp; PC
DON'T PULL BATTERY no matter what! It's safer to reboot the pc if things hang at this stage, but don't risk losing your download mode. Resolve any problems via forums first. Odin will reboot the phone after flashing is completed

5. After automatically rebooting
Open a terminal, type..
adb reboot recovery
Or , power down the phone.
Press and hold VOLUME UP + VOLUME DOWN + POWER
Samsung name displays, release only the power button for a second, the press it again.. Hold it until recovery mode is engaged

6. Use Volume up /down to move then Press Home or power to select ..
Install zip from sdcard. Select Tegrak-Kernel-Build-39-for-SHV-E120K-UE14.zip

Be sure you have selected the kernel that matches the recovery which you flashed in step 4 above.
match the recovery and kernel correctly
for example, if your device is SHV-E120K and you have firmware UE14 (check about phone)
"Build-39-for-SHV-E120K-UE14-Recovery.tar with Tegrak-kernel-Build-39-for-SHV-E120K-UE14.zip" -- correctly matched
"Build-39-for-SHV-E120K-UE14-Recovery.tar with Tegrak-kernel-Build-32-for-SHV-E120K.FA04.zip" -- mismatched

7. Go back in the recovery, move up or down to select the SU.Busybox.installer.zip
Reboot...

8. Install - Tegrak Kernel or Kernel+ ... select "enable rooting"

 

9. Open Chainfire's Superuser application and update your binary or  Chainfire's newer SuperSU app. update superuser binary (select "normal" method)

You now have Root access

Good luck!

The recovery provided will enable backup/restore of system/data etc
Flashing zip from the card also possible.

To flash .. take the recovery and flash with odin
enter recovery mode and flash the kernel zip
Flashing the wrong recovery to your device or mixing the recovery for your device with the kernel for another!

Thank you kindly for sharing this with us! We now have working recovery and a custom kernel. I have followed your procedure and installation went off smoothly.

You can view the screen shots of the recovery here http://minus.com/mPfHif8Y5/1g

Thank you once again :)

Glad it worked out. I merely stumbled on it and didn't even know it was Tegraks' latest builds. There are a few donate application options on the market by Tegrak who is tirelessly developing for Samsung devices. Will take a look at which one I can use myself and then hit donate :)

Thanks for being the guinea pig, Yatin and thanks for the screenshots!!

sorry - I'm a bit lost now :-)
How does this code help us? I assumed it was something I could do to help you but thank you in advance.

EDIT: I suppose latest firmware is available via a tool called "fus" -- there is a thread on xda here -
I shall have to check to see if the Korean Variants are available on there via the non-paid version of fus.
