If you’re fed up with your Android phone’s stock ROM, why not try flashing a custom ROM to your mobile phone? There are plenty of custom ROMs to choose from for your Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-T989. ROMs such as CyanogenMod 9 or AOKP offer pure Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for your mobile phone. You can also try the fast and beautifully designed skin of MIUI ROM. But, before you take your first step into flashing custom ROMs, we should make every flashing procedure safe by installing ClockworkMod Touch Recovery.
This software is used to create backups, restore previous ROMs, and safely flash ROMs, mods and hacks to your mobile phone. What’s even better with ClockworkMod Touch Recovery is that you will no longer need your phone’s physical buttons to navigate and select commands on the recovery menu.
Read on to learn how to flash ClockworkMod Touch Recovery 184.108.40.206 for the Galaxy S2 T989.
For those who want to use the ADB or Terminal Emulator method, you will need the following:
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22
Good job! You have successfully flashed ClockworkMod Touch Recovery 220.127.116.11 to your Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-T989. You can now flash ROMs to your device but always play it safe and make a backup before you try anything. That backup could save your phone.

I have attempted to follow the steps above for installing ClockWorkMod Recovery. I have installed Odin 3 and downloaded the recovery file. When I connect the devise as instructed, it shows that it is connected and when I add the recovery to the PDA section a click start, it fails every time. Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong. Am I missing part of the setup?
Ok, so I was finally able to get ClockWorkMod Recovery installed and I then began the process of downloading all the files for the the Jelly Bean ROM. All was well until I tried to download the darkside.venom cm10 kernel. I doesn’t seem to exist anywhere. An ideas on how to proceed from here
