I installed the latest nightly build (cm_galaxys2_full-88.zip) on my phone yesterday night and restored the all the apps through Titanium Backup. Everything was working fine until this morning I tried to create a backup using CWM recovery in Rom Manager. The phone shut down and has since been stuck on the initial boot screen (one with the Samasung galaxy S2 logo). It does not boot into recovery mode using the button combinations. I can only get it into download mode but Odin does not recognize it as I thing i forgot to enable USB debugging.

I have tried removing the battery and rebooting and also tried to access it through odin a number of times. But nothing seems to work.

What am I missing here ?

take out the battery, hold down BOTH volume buttons, and plug in the usb. The phone will turn on in DL mode, and odin will recognize it.

if odin doesn't recognize it, it's likely that you installed heimdall and overwrote the odin drivers. you can try to uninstall them, and reinstall odin, but it was less frustrating for me to use a laptop that didnt have the heimdall drivers on it.

just flash the recovery files, you don't need to flash back to stock rom.
