    Hello and welcome to Android Forums, Shauneee.

    If you think that rooting a HTC Desire is the same as rooting a Samsung Galaxy SII , then you have an awful lot to learn. :)

    For rooting the Galaxy SII, see slug's thread here...

    http://androidforums.com/galaxy-s2-...guide-updated-12-00-pm-bst-jul-03-2011-a.html

    and in particular...

    [ROM + Guide]Official i9100 Firmwares KF1/2/3/4/, KG1/2/3/5/6/7, KH1/3 Download - xda-developers

    I would strongly recommend reading everything first before rushing headlong into rooting as you were totally on the wrong track in your posting. A bit like a mechanic using a Fiat Uno instruction manual to try and replace an Aston Martin engine.

    Also there is a forum dedicated to Samsung Galaxy SII rooting for just your sort of question, here:-

    Galaxy S2 - All Things Root - Android Forums


    Hope this helps. :D

    Hahah thank you so much for the help :D
    I just typed in "Root" for the search and read the FAQ, I guess it was the transition from iPhone to Android that kind of threw me off. Once I get this rooted it'll be amazing :) Your help has been amazing ! I'll be sure to read through the whole guides. Hope to talk to you again !

    yes, watch out :D android isnt like iphone, as there are so many devices running android, unlike iOS, where its all the same. ironass has got it spot on, of course ;) read up on the guides n make sure ur familiar with all the methods and wat u need to do before u do it :D
