    I rooted my S2 and tried to install a custom ROM – but now my phone won’t even turn on?
    I’ve tried the battery in/out hold down power+volume up+home and nothing works.
    Is it a brick now? I’m worried if I return it the warranty is void since I rooted it? How screwed am I?

    um when i try to flash my stock firmware, when i click start after 1-2 mins it stops responding! why is that?

    cos i cant flash stock so i can then root because beforehand i was rooted and flashed a custom rom. i didnt like it so i restored my nandroid backup but now its stuck on boot screen with yellow triangle and only way to get it back to normal is to flash stock using odin and orginal firmware but odin “not responding” after 1-2 mins..

    Um, my 3 letter code for step 2 is KK1. Where do I find the correct kernel?

    Guessing it’s a good guide by the looks. :)

    kernel on my SGS2 is …I900MUGKG2-CL….Any idea on which CF-root is required? I looked at all and none are similar..

  • Ali S

    Will this method work (i.e., has it been tested) on each variety of the GS2? e.g., Sprint, Tmobile, ATT and international versions?

    I was wondering how to figure out what CF-root i need to download when all i see on my Kernel version is “2.6.35.7” i bought it from Best buy with a 2yr contract with AT&T ???
