    Hi guys, I got a Galaxy S II yesterday, and it came pre installed with MIUI Android, I just have a few questions

    I'm guessing it is already rooted, is there a way I can learn how to put the roms I want onto my phone

    I'm looking to install the default stock rom to it, but will my phone still be rooted?

    Is rooting like jailbreaking an iphone etc?

    Yes, you will get official updates.

    It won't really be rooted, but in most cases (Odin) flashing a new ROM will be as hard as (as easy as!) rooting. In fact you, would be re-rooting your phone by flashing a new ROM with Odin.

    You get games from the market. You pay if they are payed; and not if they are free. We like our developers, because without them, your phone would never had been made. Sorry...

    Hi guys, I originally had my S2 on MIUI, I tried flashing it to the original stock rom but it got stuck in a boot loop

    I used Odin Master Clear, pressed start on it, it did nothing and when my phone turned off it wouldn't turn on again

    I can't get into download mode or anything, what should I do?

    The screen stays black
