How to Root Samsung Galaxy S II

After flashing a custom kernel for the Samsung Galaxy S II, a small exclamation mark is going to be shown every time the device is rooted. This is really because the Galaxy S II carries a custom counter, which will keep a track of the number of times a individual has flashed a custom kernel upon his phone. The only method to remove this specific exclamation work is to use a USB JIG, which in turn resets the customized counter to 0.

Steps To Root The Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100) 

  1. First of all you need to download all the required files. You will need Odin, the required drivers and the pre-rooted kernel. Odin can be downloaded from here, while for the drivers users need to install Samsung’s KIES software. It can be downloaded from here.
  2. The pre-rooted kernel – CF Root – can be downloaded from here (Post # 3,4 and 5). The latest version of CF Root can always be found over at this thread on XDA forums.
  3. Switch off your Samsung Galaxy S II, and boot it into ‘Download’ mode. To do so, press the Volume down button + Home button + Power button simultaneously. The phone will warn you about booting into Download mode. Press the volume up button to continue.
  4. The phone will show a warning that flashing a custom OS may harm the phone. Just press the Volume Up button to skip past the screen.
  5. Once the phone boots into the Download mode, it will show an Android logo with “Downloading…” written below it.
  6. Now fire up ODIN on your computer, and connect your phone to it. Once your phone is detected by ODIN, it will display a COM port highlighted in Yellow color.
  7. Then Click on PDA, and select the CF-Root kernel. Keep in mind that the CF-Root kernel must have an extension ending with .tar. It might very well be possible that the tar file is inside a zip or rar file.

  1. Then press the ‘Start’ button in Odin, and wait for it to flash the kernel on your Galaxy S II. The flashing process will take around 3-5 seconds to complete. Once the flashing is done, your phone will automatically reboot.
  2. You have now rooted your Samsung Galaxy S II with a custom recovery (ClockWorkMod) installed, as well.
