I'm pretty new to routing, I managed to root my s3 now I'm starting on the fianc
Unlike the gs3 the gs2 doesn't have a different partition for the kernel and recovery so to root the gs2 you only need to flash a rooted kernel. This will also give you whichever recovery is attached to the kernel. There is a good guide here which will get you sorted
Yer ive been on there already mate, my problem is I have the 4.1.2 jelly bean so need this kernel
#1.8. Android Version 4.1.2, Jelly Bean.
Download the Siyah v6.0beta5 .TAR kernel file and flash via Odin as follows in post #2.)
but the link is broken can't actually find the file??????
If you flash the dorminax kernel mentioned in that guide you should be good.
Just checked... the links for Siyah-s2-v6.0b5.tar are all working fine!
Right ok, my mistake, I was clicking on the wrong download button lol, phone is now routed using the v184.108.40.206 siyah kernel, now I would like to install I9100_4.4.2_AOSP_NeatROM_v2.3 slimkat similar to the one I put on my s3.
now do I need to do this via odin and if so what settings do I use this time?
You flash all aspects of I9100 AOSP NeatROM Slim v2.3 (4.4.2) via CWM recovery and not by using Odin, as per the developers flashing instructions in post #2 of his thread.
You should do a nandroid backup prior to any further flashing and then carefully and thoroughly read the installation instructions for the above ROM.

Is it possible to get Emoji on the S2?
Yes... Handcent Emoji Plugin for Handcent SMS is just one example from the Play Store.
I must admit I like that, we have both installed that, coooooollll
Rather than handcent we are now using go sms.
