Rooting Guide
Samsung Galaxy SII GT-I9100*
  • Latest SuperSU (v2.01) by Chainfire
  • Latest Busybox (v1.22.1) by Stephen Stericson

This is SuperSU port meant to be used as a root. I converted it from sh script to edify script for flashing it from Stock Recovery No increase in binary counter. I signed this by the powerful tool by Ryuinferno (Sign-em) so you can flash without E: signature verification failed
  • From old SuperSU versions to new easy
  • No increase in binary counter
  • No yellow traingle

How To Use:
  1. Download attached zip and move it into your external microsd card
  2. Reboot into recovery
  3. choice "apply update from sdcard"
  4. Select the zip and click install
  5. For Unrooting Flash UnRoot.zip which is attachment
Thanks For Reading
PS : You can use it for I9100/G/T/P/i777 and all other s2 variants

Devils advocate here

Arent you still going to have to flash a custom kernel, without the emmc bug, which will (usually) come with su anyways?

I guess what im saying is, while this can give you root without increasing the binary counter, it will still leave you with a buggy stock kernel....

For me, from stock, i do the following:

1) Flash Philz kernel and recovery from stock recovery. (wont increase binary counter, and includes CWM recovery)

2) Reboot

3) Back up efs (important)

Then either stay on stock, reboot into recovery and flash Dorimanx 8.43 branch (with su included)

Or

reboot into recovery and flash custom ROM (usually with root)

And then update su (superuser or SuperSU (better))

Thats not exactly hard to do.

Thanks to reply
I created this thread for who wants only root (without flashing kernel, using odin and flashing custom rom)

I think it will not leave any bug (It's only copy files) and will not do anything to kernel

and your way is good but it's still replacing kernel ( duh )

Exactly, my way replaces the buggy stock kernel.....thats the entire point
