    get root browser and have a good browse at the system files. get ringtone maker and after making some custom tones, use root browser to put them in the folder with the standard tones

    First thing make a nanoid backup. Then get Titanium Pro and back up all your apps and data. After that, you are free to start flashing away....just do a bit of reading first.

    Next I would check out this thread:

    http://androidforums.com/galaxy-s2-...t/482994-rooting-galaxy-s2-dummies-guide.html

    Scroll down till you see "I'm rooted... now what?" and read, read, read!!!

    wise? I can think of one or two other four-letter adjectives!

    I did mention, in your other thread, to carefully read all of the, "Dummies Guide" caloyzki. ;)

    There are a number of things that you should do or install mentioned in post #2 of that guide as well as pointers to other things that you can enhance your phone with.

    A motto that we in the, "Home for the Terminally Befuddled", live by. :D

    (and one I've learned by bitter experience! :stupido2: )

    It's not big and it's not clever to mock the afflicted! :coffee:

    Should be the first thing you think after rooting !

    Then do a Nandroid back up via CWM, save a copy to your PC and your good to go. As long as you can get your phone to recovery mode you should be OK if you make a mess.

    Look up an app called adfree. It blocks most app adverts and is only available to root users

    Download the modem .zip of your choice to your phone and flash it via CWM Recovery.
