Hi,

I'm running the latest Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100) rom (Spain Jan2014 I9100XWMS3).
Previously I was using the Siyah kernel v6.0beta5, but even with a slightly older rom it stopped working (the phone wasn't rooted).

I don't want to use a heavily customized kernel. I just want my phone to be rooted.

How could I root this rom?
Or in other words, where can I find a current rooted kernel to root this rom?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

I'd try the CF kernel recommended in the galaxys2root dot com rooting tutorial. I seem to recall using that for a few days before I swapped ROM and it worked no problem.

Thanks for all the replies!
I decided to try Framaroot, and it worked perfectly. The last exploit worked with this rom version.
