    Can someone please show me the ropes!

    I went to root last night and ended up soft bricked. Just got the att galaxy s 2 yesterday . Never had a Samsung before and bricked the darn thing. Ok that sucked.. And now nothing on my phone is the same. After running the odin recovery it must have changes my kernel. I was on 2.3.5 now im on 3.0.8 and i dislike it very much. Ok now that I have the hang of this new Samsung thing. And of coarse I had to take the crash coarse. Can someone please tell me the root file i will need to root this phone. I really wanted to keep it as factory as possible with just the root . Now its so diff. If someone could help me get this galaxy s2 by att all dialed in I would greatly appreciate it!! If this helps PRODUCT NAME: SGH-I727 Its the sky rocket. I want it back to the way it was right out of the box just rooted. Ok, Please help !! I have always had HTC so this is all new. Seems easy but I guess the right file makes a butt load of difference. I went from HTC to an Iphone just to see what everyone is ranting and raving about. Iphones are super junk. It takes so long to get from Point A to Z, So I sold two iphones yesterday and bought this. So nice. But now Im frustrated and Hope I can get it back to the way it was. I guess Im just in need of two files. A root file and the best rom file out there. I want everything to work. internet, Gps, Picture text. Everything . Please help me.! Thanx.

    Hello Thor! So are you interested in going back to GingerBread or moving to ICS? Both can be rooted and kept stock.

    As far as roms are concerned, the best rom available is relative to each individual that mods their phone. What is great for one person is not necessarily so for the next.

    A little research concerning roms and what they bring to the table should narrow it down for you.

    Just make double sure that the roms, kernels, and root methods are for your version of the S2. There are many variants so be careful!

    Once you are rooted and running CWM as your replacement recovery system you can easily backup complete system images of your phone which, in turn, allows you to experiment with multiple roms. Don't like the latest rom that you flashed? Reboot into recovery and return to your last good Nandroid. It will take you back to exactly how everything was set up on that Nandroid.

    Here is the development section for your phone. At the top of this section is a sticky that contains root info.

    forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1383

    The rest are roms.

    That can't be! Android 3 is HoneyComb which is for tablets.

    Look under Settings, About and then look at Android Version.

    [HOWTO][TAR] THE ODIN THREAD :: Return to stock, fix soft brick :: 11/13: Rogers TAR! - xda-developers


    This should get you EVERYTHING you need to get back to STOCK! Give a me a few minutes and I will get a link to all the files you need. I have them on my computer, website and they are on XDA.

    Make sure you grab the file for the I727, and not the Rogers file.

    Also, you will have to do this, then you can get Root done. It is, in my opinion, much easier this way.
