    Hi
    I searched through the forum and could not find a thread that explains the rooting process of the Samsung s2x step by step. I found one just for the Bell carrier but not for the sgs2x. I have no idea how to root my device ( but i would love to have some ) and do not know what a kernel is or a rom or whatever.
    I have been a iPhone user before and once Samsung launched the s2x = i got attracted and i got it.
    So please if anyone can help me and i believe a lot other users too
    that would be great
    Thanks

    Yup, the T-Mobile variant (SGH-T989) is identical to the Telus offering (SGH-T989D) apart from minor differences with included software afaik. Certainly the rooting process is the same.

    That would be great blue1k because it's really confusing with all the different versions of SGS2 around here

    Great job! I've added a link to it in this forum's Rooting Guide (clearly identifying it as for the SGH-i989D), as the differences between the various variants is horribly confusing.

    Thanks for your hard work, Blue1k.
