I flashed the Omni rom and it's working great!

if i install a tool to root and unroot, would'nt it remove the triangle when i unroot it? (framaroot won't unroot it now with this rom, maybe there is an other tool which works with omni rom. I don't want to reflash it again with another rom actually as it works good now.

AFAIK, you can't unroot your device unless you flash stock rom again. With a custom rom it's simply not possible.
Galaxy S2
ROM: C-Rom 7.1

well there is still an option to flash an unrooted kernel that is compatible and then try to root it, but dont know if it would remowe that yellow death from start screen caus i newer rly had that problem. Best would be to reset your download mode counter with an USB jig if all other options fail. Then you wont have any yelow triangle there. You may have to plug the jig in and start like this download mode a few times if it dont work on first its also easy to make one home, just need an mikro usb conector + rezistor 301K ohm.

Great !
Thanks Radelos. I also saw something like this on youtube with some resistors (3 in series) But it was not said from which pin to which pin it should be connected. Mostly such things are connected from +5V to a data pin or from a data pin to ground. I will google some and see if i can find it exactly.
