Is there a program that will root my SGA2 and be 100% brick proof
Moved to Android Lounge section.
I am thinking of rooting my new Samung Galaxy Ace 2, But I hyave a few questions. I am running gingerbread 2.3.6
1, Is it doable on my phone
2, What can go wrong
3, what to do if something goes wrong
4, is there a way back to original
5, Is there a way of doing it using phone software or just computer, which is safest.
6, What is the best, safest root guide out there?
Hi there again, I have found a rooting method for your device, but so far no un-rooting method. Going to have a look at it first.
Please report back any findings
Okay so far it looks good and no complaints, but no further details about it. Also, there is no un-rooting guide as well. Your phone can be rooted, what can go wrong is it can be soft bricked, hard bricked, or bootloop. As for what to do if something goes wrong I'm afraid I am unsure and you'll probably have to do this via PC. As for safest root guide I don't think there's a safest one, but I think ones that are safe are the ones easy to understand and are simple IMO.
Only one I've seen is the root method that uses Odin. If you're not familiar with Odin, I would get to know that tool. It can unbrick your device if there is a stock firmware available for your phone model and country.
So if i bugger my new phone up.considering thee is an original firmware out on the net.i can unbrick it no matter what happens and how bad the brick is
In most cases, if you can get into download mode you can run Odin. I'm not Samsung expert but I've used Odin to save my Galaxy Tab plus from bootloops a couple times.
Good to know. I might im yet to decide if i should. Is it worth the risk?
I've rooted most of my devices for two things...
Get rid of bloatware and to install custom roms. Not sure if that is what you want. I don't see too many devs working on this device so custom roms might be scarce. So you are the one who can best answer your question.
Ok.done it yesterday and all is well!!! I got supersu pro and is working like a charm.thx anyway
Well im glad that this helped. I too had 1-2 bootloops in getting this to work as i forgot to put the metainf in and odin folowed by nandroid saved the day

Which .tar did you use. I can only find the I8160XXLD8_ready_to_root_ANT.tar.md5 and my UK ace2 is I8160XXLK7. I can find an XXLK7 but that one is just a replacement upgrade.
Trying to root ace 2 with a baseband version I8160LUBLL1 anyone have any advice
