For those of you who want to root your Galaxy S2, I’ve found out another method that is safer (than previous method) and can root ALL Galaxy S2 variants including i9100, Sprint Epic 4G Touch, AT&T Galaxy S2, and the T-Mobile Galaxy S2.
The usual method of rooting Galaxy S2 phones require flashing a new kernel using ODIN or Heimdall, which comes with ClockworkMod Recovery. Well, this method doesn’t install a new kernel with recovery but does root your Galaxy S2 in the safest way possible. There’s absolutely ZERO chance of you bricking your phone with this new method. At the worst, you might end up with having no root because you didn’t install the drivers.
So, let’s go do it.
Step 1. Set USB debugging checked under Settings->Applications->Development and connect to your computer via a microUSB cable.
Step 2. Download GalaxyS2RootNew.zip, unzip it and you should get a folder called files and runme.bat.
Step 3. Make sure you have correct drivers installed. You can verify this by going to Control Panel and finding something like “Samsung Android ADB Interface” like shown below. If you don’t, download Samsung Kies software, install it, then re-plug your phone back in to your computer.
Step 4. Next, simply hit Runme.bat and wait about 10 minutes while your Galaxy S2 gets rooted with busybox installed.
Step 5. When it’s done rooting, your Galaxy S2 will reboot.
Step 6. Verify you have Superuser app and that root access is working correctly by updating the Superuser app. That’s it! Congratulations, you’ve rooted your Galaxy S2.
Now, if you want to install new custom ROMs, you will have to flash ClockworkMod Recovery.
