    [How To] Easily Root Your AT&T SGS2

    [How To] Easily Root your SGS2 - xda-developers

    This is the way I rooted my AT&T SGS2, but I'm not a technician so I can't really help with problems. If you have any, contact our Rescue Squad.
    You do need to put the signed Zip file onto your phone, before installing it.

    I ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY IF IT BRICKS YOUR PHONE.

    What is needed:
    1. Download kernel from codeworkx here
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1285823

    2. Download PaulyHoffman su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip:
    PH.C downloads

    3. Odin 1.82 (Search Forums)

    4. Android drivers for your phone install using Kies.
    http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.co...1082_152_4.exe

    Now we are going to flash the Kernel
    1. Power off device.
    2. Hold down both vol down+vol up and plug in usb cable
    3. Hit volume up and accept warning
    4. Open odin
    5. Choose the kernel you just downloaded and load into PDA.
    6. Click start and let it run completely and boot up.
    7. Completely power down your phone.
    8. Hold vol up and vol down button and then hold down power button as well until you see the boot screen then release all three buttons. It will take a few, but you will boot into Clockwork Mod, you will know your in CWM because there will be a black background with blue text.
    (To navigate CWM Vol Up moves cursor up and Vol Down moves cursor down. Home button selects and back button goes to previous menu.)
    9. Scroll down and select "install zip from sdcard" then select "choose zip from sdcard". Now go and select "su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip" then select "Yes - su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip". Now select back until your at the main menu select "reboot system now".

    You are now rooted

    No, you have a SkyRocket - this is for the Samsung Galaxy S II - they're different phones.

    So I rooted with the Siyah kernel and a completely different method (I think), should I flash the must recent version of that kernel? Now that I have, any idea how ready our hard it would be to get a solid KB ROM on this phone? Is the dev community still working on this phone?

    Sorry, I just reread that myself and it made no sense. I was trying to ask if I should flash the latest Siyah kernel and if the dev community is working on a port of the pure stock JB (as opposed to KB) ROM, 4.1.

    Download the stock kernel and flash it either via CWM or in the PDA slot of Odin.

    Well, I found the stock kernel on XDA and flashed it...but I didn't look at the date that it was posted until after I had flashed it and my phone seemed to be "soft bricked". Basically it wouldn't boot past the Galaxy S2 screen so I held volume up/down and power and was able to flash the Siyah kernel back with Odin again and it's working again but it has locked up pretty bad a couple times which required a battery pull.

    I've read about users doing something a "full wipe" and clear the "dalvik"? Is all that necessary or part of it maybe? I used CWM to create a Nandroid back up about a week ago so I'm good there. If I just use CWM to do a restore would that clear out any possible errors that might have occurred because of the wrong kernel getting flashed?
