No, when you flash to KE8 it will unroot automatically.
Do I then just press root in Super One Click to re-root my phone, or will it now have a secure kernel? Sorry if that's a dumb question but I'm new to rooting.
Not sure, I have never used the on click root I just re rooted with CF Root.
I've had a read up on doing this with CF Root and it looks a bit more complicated than the other method but it looks doable. If the worst comes to the worst atleast I have a nice paperweight.
Its quite simple when you have done it once Flash one file with odin and your done...
"Put the zImage file on the root folder of Internal SD Card. ( do not put it inside any folder of Internal SD Card. ) "
Thats the bit that confusing me. How do you put the file on the root folder without putting it in a folder.
It just means put it on your phone memory but not in a folder if you get me. All though im pretty sure I put mine in the usb storage folder, I dont think it matters.
I just checked and I did put the zImage in the usb storage folder and it worked fine for me.
This was badly written by someone who doesn't know their Unix properly. It should say "Put the zImage file in the root directory (not a sub-directory) of...".
Thanks guys. Will give it a go 2moro as had a few beers 2nite so probably not wise to do it now. Will post back if I ain't bricked my phone.
Just had a thought, if they got that wrong did they mess anything else up?
Rooting Samsung Galaxy S2 with Latest Original KE8 Firmware & Kernel-Step by Step guide
This is an old guide I suggest folllwing the CF root method on xda. I will post a link in a second...
Just flashed. Evenings ok
I did the same using CF root method and seems ok in the main. I didnt re-flash the origional kernel yet as I do not have an SD card but i dont get the yellow warning triangle on start up either. Is this becasue i flashed the the same KE2 firmware on my device? Do i need to re-flash teh stock firmware?
Soory I am also a noob at this and although I now have super user access and CWM v1.80 I feel as if i should be doing something else. My Kernel firmware version still reads exactly the same as before i flashed is this right?
Additionally my wireless connection keeps dropping out and some applications saying no data recieved intermitantly. Is there a fix for this...?
Grrrrrr. What have i done! lol
