Hi ironass, i followed the instructions and did a titanium backup post rooting and then followed on to flash the kernel and rom. after that i did a restore via titanium and got all the apps back. but now i have alot of apps in my titanium that aren't installed in my device and shows up in the apps list with a line thru them. can i just delete those apps from titanium? if i decide to unroot and flash back the stock rom, will those apps be installed with the stock rom?

So I'm a newb to rooting and read the whole guide through.

Not had the balls to try it just yet.
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.....

lol sorry dude. Its just a lot to take in if you're new to this. No matter if you've already spent a day reading up about it.

Thanks for the reply avushkaa!

So If I read correct the backups can allow me to reset my phone should anything go wrong while rooting? Or is it purely backup for apps and data?
Is there even a way to restore a root gone wrong? (Is that what they call a bricked phone?)

Sorry if these questions are the noob of noob questions but I'm just looking for answers.
Thx

Posts #1 and #2 of this thread explain, in great detail, step-by-step, with a video, on how to root your phone.

In answer to your question... no Factory Reset is required. If you want to back up your phone, for whatever reason, you can do so via Samsung Kies and watching the tutorial or by using MyBackUp from the Play Store.

Purely backup of app's and data.

Just read back through this thread and you will see that no-one has bricked their phone following these instructions to the letter.

1 thing i learnt when i rooted my phone, as i used the wrong cf-root kernel initially.

download the stock rom first. its quite a big file and takes a while to download. i needed it to get my phone back on after flashing the wrong kernel and the phone refusing to boot. took me 2 hours to download the rom. 2 hrs felt like 2 days not knowing the fate of my phone....

Themes are usually .zip files flashed via CWM Recovery.

Question Help...

i rooted my SGSII last night.

everything is working fine except i cant flash theme.apk.zip file from cwm recovery.
i switched off my phone.
booted into recovery mode (vol up+home+power)
selected install zip file from sd card
(at first i tried to flash theme.zip file from sdcard but in recovery mode i didnt see that file.so i zipped the file from within the phone.this time i saw the file in cwm recovery.)
selected theme.apk.zip file

then i received these following lines
''installation initialize....
installation aborted.....''

i tried to do it again but no luck.
any idea why?
and what should i do now?
can i install the theme.apk file like any other app from the market or should i wipe cache and dalvik cache and then try again to flash the theme.apk.zip?

This isnt really the thread to be asking this, better would be to start a new thread, but for what it's worth, with a file name like that, my guess is it's not a CWM flashable zip, but a zip file of a .apk. Open the zip and see what's inside. If its just a .apk file, extract it, copy it to you sd card then run via My Files app.

Now that you are already on stock ICS, you will need to flash a GB ROM/firmware, which will contain its own kernel, to downgrade.

Quote:
second, some roms that i;ve browsed say that they come with kernel! what does it mean?
Exactly that! The firmware comes with its own kernel to control operations. For an explanation of what a kernel does, see, Android A to Z: What is a kernel?

Quote:

ROM's come with their own kernel.

Quote:

The CF-Root kernel, LP7, is identical to the LP7 kernel that comes with your stock firmware except that it has been engineered to provide you root access. Siyah kernel is one that you can flash after you are rooted and offers battery and performance improvements.

Welcome to the forum sg2bg and thanks for joining.

If you want to go back to gb you won't have to flash a different kernel first. When you flash the gb firmware the kernel will be changed to a compatible one at the same time. You also don't need to worry about compatibility of custom roms with your current kernel as your kernel will be replaced with the one which comes with the Rom when you flash.

Cfroot is pretty much a stock kernel which offers you root access whereas siyah will offer root plus a lot of advanced features.

hi guys, thanks again for your guidance on how to root sgs2 on ld3. i now have a sgs2 rooted with CF-Root-SGS2_XW_XSA_LP8-v5.4-CWM5 . i'm now ready to install differrent rom on it. the rom that i'm planning to install is Pure.ICS-v7.5. my question is , should i just go ahead and install that rom, or should i first install siyah kernel and then install rom itself? thanks.

p.s. off-course all the back ups were made

p.s. off-course all the back ups were made
ROM then kernel as the ROM will contain its own kernel which would overwrite Siyah.

Hey Guys,
I've been searching around the internet for a bit, unwilling to post, but I've come across this forum a fair bit, especially Ironass' comments, and i reckon you'd be willing to help.
So i got a Galaxy S II today, it's the I9100T version (Vodaphone, Australia)
I've gotten to the point in the guide where i need to download the Root Kernel, but i can't find the right one.

My Kernel Version is:
2.6.35.7-I9100TDUKJ1-CL687461
root@DELL136 #2

I was under the Impression that i need to be looking for the Kernel that matches the "DUKJ1" part, but i can't find anything remotely similar.

Any help would be amazing, thanks
~Luke

Welcome to the forum Lukish27 and thanks for joining.

Use one of the lux kj1 kernels in post number 7 of the cfroot thread on xda. Try the cwm5 one first as it has a more recent recovery.

Alright, so i've run into a bit of a problem
I downloaded the Lux KJ1 Kernel, but when i connected to my computer, Kies wanted to update my phone, i let it, but in the process it has changed my Kernel to:
3.0.15-I9100TDELPB-CL710191
dpi@DELL154 #3

so, using my own initiative :P i decided that i should get the
"CF-Root-SGS2_XX_OXX_LPB-v5.2-CWM5" Kernel from post #8 on the xda forum

but apparently it has "problems mounting secure storage"
sorry to be a pain, but could you explain exactly what that means and give me some more awesome advice?

um...i can't think of anyway that you could, kind of the point of restoring to factory settings, i guess you'd have to do it again...but i'm not sure...
Let's sit and wait for Shotgun

It basically means you will have trouble installing some apps from Google play. There is a solution to the problem however. Follow this guide on how to remove the yellow triangle and you should be fine

You're in the wrong thread mate! This is all about rooting your phone.

You need the JKay thread, here.

In short... the restore .zip file is a JKay file that will restore your framework back to the way it was.

Hi everyone,

I've hit a brick wall. About a month ago, I successfully rooted my phone using the instructions provided here on chromefans website.

Anyway, everything was running smoothly until tonight. My battery nearly went flat, I inserted the charger cable and after 20 mins I noticed my phone was turned off. I went to restart my phone, and it got stuck on the opening screen with the exclamation sign. So I removed the battery, restarted the phone, same thing. Tried another fully charged battery, same thing. It wouldn't continue past the start-up screen. So, I'm now at the stage where I'm trying to re-flash my already rooted phone, however ODIN3 v1.83 isn't helping. In fact, I'm getting the following:
<ID:0/052> Added!!
<ID:0/052> Odin v.3 engine (ID:52)..
<ID:0/052> File analysis..
<ID:0/052> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/052> Initialzation..
<ID:0/052> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/052> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/052> zImage

On my SGS2, it displays:
ODIN MODE
Product Name: GT-I9100
Custom Binary Download: Yes (2 Counts)
Current Binary: Custom

The TAR file is the following:
CF-Root-SGS2_XW_XEN_LP7-v5.4-CWM5.tar

Any ideas how to re-flash my SGS2 and get it back to working function?

Thank you

Hello and welcome to Android Forums MrX1987!

One quick question... What firmware are you running?

Thank you Ironass,
Before my SGS2 failed, it was running ICS 4.0.3

Just checked that method out and it is the notorious, "One-Click", method of rooting that has caused more problems on here than it has solved.

I would suggest flashing a stock ICS, Android 4.0.3, firmware, such as LPG using Odin and the instructions under, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!", in post #1, here.

After flashing you will need to re-root again using the instructions in posts #1 and #2 in this thread.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums marscon!

Currently, LQ5 is the latest CF-Root kernel from Chainfire and can be used on any Android 4.0.4 firmware.
