Re: [HOW TO] Root T989! TWRP+CWM!
I am on my phone and don't have time to make this look nice so feel free to do it and send it to me.
If you are reading this you probably just rooted your phone. Congratulations! Now your probably wondering "how do I install all these cool ROMs?" This is the easy part.
There are many ways to install a ROM but I'm going to show the easiest and most convenient method. Installing through TWRP
1: open the Goo.im application (available on the play store) and go to menu > install open recovery script > yes. This will get you the latest version of TWRP.
2: go on XDA>T-Mobile galaxy s2>android development and download any ROM you like. (Anything by Ptmr3 is the best choice)
3: download the latest Google apps package (Gapps) for your version of android. (Not needed for TW ROMs)
4: (Not needed but strongly recommended) install app2zip from the play store and backup all your apps. (If you want any bloatware or system apps you can back them up too.)
5: Backup anything else you want.
6: reboot into recovery. (power on phone holding volume up and down)
7: click backup. Set backup name and swipe to start (don't do this until your phone is past 30% or plugged in.)
8: click install find the ROM you downloaded and swipe to start.
9: when that is done go back and click install and find the Gapps package you downloaded and swipe to start. (Does not apply if on TW ROM)
10: when that finishes wipe cache and dalvik
11: go to main menu hit advanced then fix permissions and swipe to start.
12: reboot and do not touch for at least 10 minutes.
13: reboot into recovery click install and find the apps you backuped and swipe to start.
14: reboot wait at least 5 minutes and enjoy the awesomeness!
Phone: Galaxy s2 t989
Rom: PACman 21.0.1
I have a ton of app ideas. Come check them out and maybe you will see them in the play store one day!
