Do I need a factory reset of my phone to start the rooting procedure? I think i'm not fully following how i can back up my phone to make sure nothing goes wrong...
Maybe someone can give me a bit more explenation on the back up part?
i'm also a new-bee here.
but i read a lot (atleast that's what i think) about rooting SGSII here and on the XDA forum.
so far i understand, u don't need to factory reset ur phone to root.
the process of ''How To Root'' is given here
Rooting Galaxy S2 - Dummies Guide
or u can check this webpage too
AndroidNZ: [At Your Own Risk] How to Root your Samsung Galaxy S II
and for the back up part of your SGSII, check this webpage
AndroidNZ: [At Your Own Risk] How to backup your Rooted 'Droid - NANDROID & Titanium Backup
before doing anything ''READ THOROUGHLY'' and ''READ A LOT'' on how to root.
but be very very careful when doing this becuz it is ur own decision to root and if anything happens u r solely responsible for it.
all the above links are provided by the modders here in many threads.
have a safe ROOTING.....
