    Hello every1.
    i am new in these forums and it looks quite interesting to me , well i m facing a problem , well its not a problem actually but i m bit confused about few things ...

    I have updated my GALAXY S2 firmware and now its on ICS..

    Model No = GT-I9100
    Android Version = 4.0.3
    Baseband Version = I9100XXLPW
    Kernel Version = 3.0.15-I9100XWLPD
    Build Number = IML74K.XWLPD

    Now I want to root my mobile and as i heard in these forums that for that i have to download the exact CF ROOT which matches my version , BUT now the problem is i have these 2 versions and both are available so which one is for me ? XXLPW or XWLPD ? :thinking:

    And if some1 can find me the exact version then it would be appreciable ...
    And aslo i have downloaded the latest version of ODIN 3xx and before i updated my mobile with Odin 2xxxx so i am sure it wont make any difference of odin but right now my main concern is my stupid version thingy...

    Thanks ..


    P.S (apologies to the MODS if i make this thread in a wrong section or violate any of your rules,Please move my thread in a proper section if its in a wrong One )

    Welcome the forum Doopie and thanks for joining.

    You need the cfroot kernel which matches your current kernel which is xwlpd. The baseband doesn't need to match your firmware and kernel version so disregard that while rooting. There is a good guide on how to root here

    The cfroot kernel won't match yours identically so go for the 2nd nee lpd kernel in post 8 of this thread

    No need to worry. If there weren't any threads to move I'd be out of a job:D

    Although the link you have given is probably legit I'd download it from chainfires xda page just to be on the safe side.
