Default Rooting a Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 running Android 2.3.6, Gingerbread version EK02, hardware version D710.10. Is there a program like z4root or Universal Androot (neither of which work) I can use to root this phone. I'm really not confident enough to use ODIN (or even find the right release of ODIN).

Ivan,
I have a new one as well with the same concerns. I just went this route with the root and it worked flawlessly! Do some reading about what apps you can safely remove. My Galaxy is smooth and I have better battery life since I did. No more Sprint crap!

You would be better off posting this question in the, "All Things Root", section for the Samsung Galaxy SII rather than in Android Applications. See here:-

Galaxy S2 (International) - All Things Root - Android Forums

The sticky at the beginning of the forum contains all there is to know about rooting your phone. See here:-

http://androidforums.com/galaxy-s2-international-all-things-root/367935-samsung-galaxy-s2-root-guide-updated-15-43pm-gmt-dec-20-2011-a.html

The best and safest way to root your handset is using the CF-Root method described in the sticky.

Hope this helps.
