if I root my samaung galaxy s2 is there an app I can download to get wifi calling?
You will need to load a rom with 2.3.6 which includes wifi calling. There a few on XDA.
You will need to call T-Mobile to get wifi calling enabled for this to work.
Hi Blue1k, I'm now to rooting. I have rooted my Tmo S2. Do you mind providing step by step procedure to load tyhe 2.3.6 ROM I downloaded from XDA forum.
Sure 2 ways:
1. You can flash the official rom (unrooted) with odin. But then you will need to root again. You can use my guide in the root section to re-root. To flash you would unzip/unrar the file and flash selecting PDA in odin. My guide in root shows how to do this.
2. Install a rooted 2.3.6 rom with wifi calling in the recovery menu. You will download a zip file (this is the rom) and you flash it in recovery.
Please be aware you will need to have a brand new sim for wifi calling to work. Some of the older sims don't seem to work. You will also have to call T-mobile to enable wifi calling on their end.
Here is a good rom (zip format) that has wifi calling and is pre-rooted (2.3.6 ). This means you will keep your root:
HOW TO INSTALL:
*scroll to the part about flashing a custom rom.
Hi, I was poking around at the XDA forum and be able to get the new rom 2.3.6. However, I just noticed it unrooted my phone. I won't be able to use Titanium Backup to get rid of the Tethering Manager.
What can I do now to get root access again?
(many thanks Blue1k)
ahh.. just re-read your thread. where is your guide to re-root the phone again?
Just be sure to use the newer su zip file for 2.3.6
thanks! but where can I find the newer su zip 2.3.6?
It's on my thread listed in the steps
OH I see. I scrolled back to the top of the page and see it.
So, before I proceed, let me ask.. by following your step, will it wipe out all my apps and account info on my phone?
Previously, I followed the steps in GalaxyS2Root.com, it won't clear my data.
No it shouldn't. It is only flashing a new recovery and the superuser app and su framework. I would backup any really important stuff just in case.
Got it thru! Thank you so much! I also left some comment in that thread and sent a small donation. =)
I have problems with WiFi (Wi-Fi) calling. The phone simply enters a "dead mode" in which the phone loses its ability to make ANY calls. No calls, zip; neither via WiFi or the Cell network. This "dead mode" appears to be permanent. T-Mobile simply told me they knew about this problem and that I should call Samsung. Anybody has a workaround?
