CyanogenMod is an aftermarket firmware for a number of cell phones based on the open-source Android operating system. It offers features not found in the official Android based firmwares of vendors of these cell phones.

Prerequisite:
1. Make sure you’re running ICS bootloaders. If you already running ICS then you’ll be fine. Follow this guide to upgrade to ICS.

Step 1- running a proper working ClockworkMod-Recovery
Since i9100g not officially supported by CWM, we need to use CWM that already built into the kernel (custom kernel). Download one of this kernel (from xda):
GB – 5.0.2.8
ICS – 5.5.0.4
ICS LP7 – 5.5.0.4

-Boot into Download-Mode using Volume Down + Home + Power
-Start ODIN and choose “GT-I9100G_XX_ClockworkMod-Recovery_X.X.X.X.tar” as PDA (no repartition)
-Connect your Phone and start flashing
-After reboot you can easily root your device using SuperOneClick

Step 2-Flashing CyanogenMod9
Get CM9 nightly build from http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?device=i9100g. Since Google Apps were taken out from CM9 ROM, you can get it from here.

– Copy GApps and CM9 ZIPs to your internal SDCard
– Boot into Recovery
– Flash CM9 zip from internal SDCard
– Flash GApps zip from internal SDCard
– DO A DATA WIPE / FACTORY RESET (otherwise your device will be stuck at boot)
– Reboot
