Hello there people of Modaco,

I was just wondering if there was a safe way to root a Samsung Galaxy SII, and if there is, please could you post a thread/instructions on how it is done. I am based in the UK & I have a black SII:

Model number-
GT-I9100

Android version-
4.0.4

Baseband version-
I9100XXLQ6

Kernel version-
3.0.15-I9100XWLPT-CL941023
dpi@DELL169 #3
SMP PREEMPT Fri Jul 27 18:08:15 KST 2012

Build number-
IMM76D.XWLPT

I have looked everywhere & can't find a reasonable answer, only people saying it's impossible.

Many thanks for your time, I really appreciate any help.

i could be very wrong though

I have exactly the same kernel,etc on my S2 and I rooted it last week and it worked fine. Can be done without flashing from a zip file loaded on the SDCard with standard kernel. http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1746794
