It has been quite a while since the Samsung Galaxy S2 received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update. The users of this phone must be feeling a little better to get the long-awaited update. We had come up with a rooting Guide for the Galaxy S2 on Android 4.1.2 XWLS8 firmware but that was specific only to a bunch of builds. Here is another rooting tutorial that is applicable to all 4.1.2 firmwares.
If you have already updated your Galaxy S2 to the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean ROM and wish to root your phone and install the ClockworkMod recovery on it, follow the easy tutorial given below. Having rooted your phone, you will be able to install apps that require root permission. On the other hand if you install the CWM Recovery too, you can install custom ROMs and mods to enjoy variety and get the most out of your Galaxy S2.
Though the method described below has been tested successfully and found working fine, it’s our duty to warn you that the rooting procedure is considered risky and will void your phone’s warranty too. Therefore, think twice before you decide to proceed with it. We shall not be responsible for any mishap. You can regain the warranty later by unrooting or flashing the official firmware.
The rooting procedure described here also works with Galaxy S2 GT-I9100T variant.
When the phones boots up, it should have ClockworkMod Recovery installed on it but your phone is still unrooted.
On booting up, your phone should be rooted. Go to the app drawer on your phone, open the SuperSU app and update the binary if prompted. Download and install Root Checker app and run it to verify the root. Later, whenever you need to boot your Galaxy S2 into CWM Recovery mode, turn off the phone, and follow Step 2.
