    It's been a while since I've rooted a device. Looking to root the s2 to the latest jelly bean rom. Got a fresh s2 still in stock. So, how do I first root it, and then how do I install the rom?

    Hi Lulu. To root, follow this guide.

    To install a rom, download whichever one you want and put it in the root (not in a folder) of your sd card. Depending on the rom, you may also need Gapps (google apps). There will usually be a link for it in the same thread. If not, you can find it here. For ICS, you need 20120429. For Jelly Bean you need 20120726.

    Then go to the ClockworkMod recovery you installed when you rooted and do a full wipe. Different people wipe different things. I like to do everything. There will usually be instructions in the rom thread.


    Wipe data/factory reset
    Wipe cache partition
    Under advanced, wipe dalvik cache
    Under mounts/storage, wipe system

    Go to 'install zip from sd card', choose and install the rom zip
    Install Gapps (if needed)
    Reboot and let your phone sit for 10 minutes.
    Reboot, enjoy your new rom
