    My friend gave me her old phone and I decided to try and root it myself. I rooted it using Odin and jeboo kernel and it said that it passed, now when I try and turn it on nothing happens. I can turn it on in download mode, a yellow yield sign comes up and then it turns off again and nothing happens.

    Can anyone help me make this phone work again? I'm worried my friend is going to ask for it back...I live with her. I am a complete idiot for trying to do this myself.

    Did you download and install superuser after the kernel? Can you boot into recovery? The steps to fix this vary by carrier. Is it Sprint? Verizon? With a little more info we can help you get this figured out...

    Hi, I'm the same person, just made an account now because it wouldn't let me reply otherwise.

    So. Yes I did install superuser after the kernel, I can't boot it into recovery any more, I can turn it on in download mode if it's connected to the laptop and that's about it. I thought if I could just wipe the phone in recovery mode and use odin to put the kernel on again it might work but I can't get the phone on

    Hi and welcome to android forums.

    I suggest that you post you question in the forum "all things root" for the S2 here:

    Galaxy S2 (International) - All Things Root - Android Forums

    If its not an international version, the forum for your phone!

    You are more likely to find expert help for your phone there.

    Good luck

    Roger
