Also, if all you're looking for is a rooted stock without a custom recovery then you can also use this:
Link to stock VM ROM for SGS2

If you want a custom recovery, then the link DragonSlayer so kindly posted is a safe bet. If that method fails or if you ever accidentally do something wrong you can always use the Link to stock rom I just posted to get ya back to stock
Good luck! Post if ya need more help. This forum is full of nice people.

Android tablets don't connect to ad-hoc networks by default, and tether apps default to ad-hod mode. There are several ways around this: You can download WiFi Tether for Root Users and change the device-profile to Samsung Epic Touch 4g and the setup-method to Netd. There are a lot of settings in there that you can tinker with. If that doesn't work, you can replace the wpa_supplicant file on your tablet with one that's been modified to see ad-hoc networks. I'd search the xda forums. I found an app that automates the wpa_supplicant replacement, you can try that out if you're brave enough: WiFi Ad Hoc enabler for Android arenddeboer.com
