    Im new to android had my phone like a week, so i dont really know what im doing.

    I have an s2, which i flashed from 2.3.3 to 2.3.4 on KG1, and im looking at the xda forums and apparantly KG5 is the latest version, but on xda it says OXA poland, does that mean it will only work on polish devices or some shit? any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    (Also i would like to root once i update the firmware)

    Just connect your phone to your pc and place the zImage on your phones memory. Then go into the CWM app, choose flash kernel and select the zImage file.

    You have to flash the stock KG1 kernel with Odin to remove the warning, then use CWM to flash the CF-Root zImage file back to regain full root functionality.
