Congratulations on rooting your phone FiveBodyBlade!


What can I say?

I'd like to take the credit for the, "Dummies Guide", but there are those on this forum who know, only too well, that I am as thick as two short planks!

It's really an amalgam of lots of different posts, from all over the web, that I tried to bring together to form as safe a method of rooting the SGSII, for absolute beginners, that I could possibly write.

Before posting the original draft I had to run it by other, more experienced forum members, such as Slug, Hawker and Shotgun84... who were only too keen to point out the errors in it!!!

Thanks to their, and others, help, we arrived at a "Dummies Guide", that didn't actually brick your phone.

Since publishing it, I've updated it constantly to keep abreast of events and to take into account things that people were finding difficult about it. For instance, one young lady PM'd me and said that she did not know how to extract a .zip file. Something I hadn't thought of.

So, what you see now is a culmination of effort and, hopefully a guide that people can refer to, at their leisure, that not only roots your phone but also gives you some ideas as what you can do with it afterwards.

So, on behalf of everybody concerned, thank you very much for your post and good luck with your rooted Galaxy SII.
Did you know that hitting the Thanks button is quicker than typing it and the Search button is your friend.
