    Hello! Names Carlos!

    I recently got rid of my iPhone 4s and brought a Samsung Galaxy SII. I havent had a standard phone for a long time so I am already looking into rooting and changing alot of the phones stuff.

    Any help with that would be appreciated 'cos I'm not 100% sure about the process.

    Anyway, Gonna have a mooch around the site now and see what info I can gather.

    Merry Christmas

    Hello and welcome to AndroidForums. What wireless carrier do you have? It is important because root methods vary from carrier to carrier. Once you specify that, I can better direct you where to look.
