Hello and welcome to Android Forums anuska159!

Judging by your CSC code, SIM, you have Slovenian, LPG, firmware on your phone.

First of all we need to check that your CF-Root kernel, that you are using to root, matches your original, stock, kernel, as per post #1....

Settings > About phone > Kernel version (make a note of this in case of problems)

Once you have ascertained which kernel version you are currently running you will need to go here.
So could you post the full details of your original stock kernel for your firmware as well as the CF-Root kernel you have used for rooting.

Hi There,

Sigh... here goes, you've heard this before. Not such a n00b, have sucessfully rooted a galaxy ace in the past. However, I followed the instructions in the first few posts to the letter. except for the fact i didn't note down my phones details! Huge DOH!

Now when booting up the phone it shows the yellow triangle screen and then goes black... I have tried the wipes detailed in the first post to no avail.

As i said i didn't note down the the details I should have noted. but the kernel I downloaded was apparently the right one as I checked and double checked the numbers. the three digits were LPH and the kernel I dl'd was CF-Root-SGS2_XX_OXA_LPH-v5.2-CWM5.tar

The phone is a uk model s2 GT-I9100p from O2

Any help would be gratefully and humbly received

Hello and welcome to Android Forums taqdu!

As per post #1, your kernel does not follow the usual number/letter convention. Therefore you must use the Build number, LPY, to select your kernel.

CF-Root-SGS2_XW_NEE_LPY-v5.6-CWM5.zip

Have amended the instructions in post #1 to cover the anomalies in the ICS kernel numbering convention, that has been causing problems when trying to find a suitable CF-Root kernel for rooting.

I have also included rooting for the Jelly Bean, leaked, release as well.

Hopefully, this will help make things clearer, and easier, for those wishing to root ICS and JB stock firmware.

Hello Ironass, nice to meet you
i followed your guide to root my galaxy S2 i9100T, everything went well except after rebooting, i get a black screen after the triangle screen. I tried wiping the cache partition and dalvik cache, but no effect.

These are my details

PDA : I9100TDULPB

PHONE : I9100TDULP4

CSC : I9100TVAULP8

and i used CF-Root-SGS2_XX_OXX_LPB-v5.2-CWM5-PROPER.

Hope you can help.
Thanks

Hello and welcome to Android Forums gaz_armo!

If the OXX-LPB kernel is not working for you I would suggest using the Siyah kernel mentioned in post #1, which is suitable for all ICS firmwares.

You do not need to flash a stock firmware to root.

You are already running stock ICS, Android 4.0.3, for the GT-i9100T, Vodafone, Australia.

I have a Bell locked i9100M running stock ICS 4.0.4 baseband UGLD3

This is the first I tried to root this phone.

I did exactly described here, but Odin reported "Failed" in the end. Now my phone has the red screen "error during firmware upgrade". I can't go anywhere except for the "Downloading" screen, I can't even turn off the phone. Can;t go to recovery mode either.

Please please help me out here! I can't afford to lose this phone

UPDATE: apparently siyah 5x does not work with UGLD3. I tried CF-root v5.6 for LQ6, and it works now

You can flash anything your heart desires... so long as it is for your model number.

So my kernel version is 2.6.35.7-I9100JPJV6, and I'm running GB. I downloaded the XWXDD_insecure.tar file listed in the downloads in post 2 on here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1056334 and it won't go past the boot screen. Tried a couple of other CF root files but they keep failing on odin. Any suggestions?

I thought I should add this in.

Can't seem to find the CF root file for my kernel version anywhere. Any advice on what file to use would be greatly appreciated.

As per post #1...

This guide is for rooting the Samsung Galaxy S2, GT-i9100, GT-i9100M, GT-i9100T & GT-i9100P only and no other variant.***

If you are unsure of the model of your phone, go to Settings > About phone > Model number
You have the Galaxy S, GT-i9000. See Galaxy S - All Things Root for details on rooting that model.

At least you now know why you could not root it using the kernels for the GT-i9100!

After I downloaded and unzipped the Siyah v5.0.1 file, I did not get any .tar, instead I got something called zImage??!

You only have to extract .zip files. The Siyah is a .tar file.

oh yeah, you are right. It's got the same icon as other zip files so I got confused.

Default Great guide

Thanks for the great guide. I'm new to android and i've just rooted using your guide. I just have a few questions.

When i use the clockworkmod and backup there is this error message
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't open/cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open/cache/recovery/last_log

But it goes on to make the backup and i restarted the phone multiple times and it reboots as it should. From the various threads and forums i checked on, the error message is not good. Should i just flash back to original ICS or can i keep rooted? Right now i'm only rooted and not on any custom roms. (ICS 4.0.4)

With regard to the STweaks, what the best settings for the CPU to get the best battery life but not comprimise how the phone works?

Once i've got superuser access do i need to be careful even if i download app from the playstore? Is there any specific permissions i should cautious of?

Thanks in advance

Wipe cache and dalvik as per Step #4 in post #2.

Select Battery Profile in STweaks. Beyond that it is down to each individuals usage.

Hello, i'm very new to the Android scene with this GS2 beig my first device.I'm confident now I can root without any problems but i'm a little concerned about the implications of doing so.
When I root I believe i'm replacing a kernal, if so is it possible to revert back to the original one for warranty purposes?

Terrific guide by the way, I was lost until I found it

I'm on a GS2 I9100P running 4.04 for reference

All you would need to do is to flash a stock firmware back on to your device and reset the custom ROM counter, if you are on ICS a USB jig will reset the counter or you can use triangle away

A USB jig hasn't worked to reset the flash counter or get rid of the yellow triangle since 2.3.6 version of Ginger Bread on the SGS2. A new bootloader from then on saw to that.

To revert to stock entirely once rooted, use "Triangle Away" and then flash a stock firmware .zip in recovery mode.

It worked on mine on 4.03, wont work JB tho , only the download mode but i dont know what bootloader was on it to be honest as it was unlocked in a shop before i got hold of it

But whilst we are on the subject where could i get hold of the old bootloader ?

Thanks

I have a copy on my PC. I'll upload it to drop box and post the download link here over the weekend. I have to warn you though it is from GB not ICS. Don't blame me if you damage your phone using it.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums EvelineGirl!

I see from your post that you are running T-Mobile, Netherlands, firmware on ICS, Android 4.0.4.

As per post #1, you will need to root this using the Siyah .tar kernel mentioned...

Download the Siyah v5.0.1 .tar kernel file and flash via Odin as follows in post #2.
