Trouble rooting S2 I9100 - keeps crashing PC
New here, so apologies for any noob mistakes...
I'm trying to root my new S2 I9100 - I followed the guide on this site, even watched the video and read it in full before starting. I've located the correct kernals (KI4, have tried all 3 varieties), and everything works until i start to run Odin 3.
it connects, I click start, and about 5 seconds in I suddenly get a blue screen with white text saying
"A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to protect your computer.
And a bunch more text below, including
*** STOP 0x000000FE (0x00000001, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"
"Beginning Dump of Physical Memory"
After Which it restarts my PC. I have tried reinstalling the drivers (just reinstalled Kies), ran windows update, then ran out of ideas. Thankfully it hasn't bricked my phone - I have to remove the battery to restart it (stuck in "ODIN MODE", with the android robot and "Downloading... Do Not Turn Off Target!!" in the centre), but it seems to work by using recovery mode once I put it back in.
Oh, and I did enable USB debugging mode, but only after the first crash (didn't see it in the video).
Any help which could be provided would be great, I'd love to root it but can't seem to get anywhere with it (and, like I said: noob, so apologies if I take a bit to catch on).
