First, a few disclaimers! READ THESE FIRST!
~Anything you do to your phone is your fault! Neither myself, nor the developers whose modifications are listed below are fiscally, morally, emotionally, or any other '-ly' responsible for what happens!
~Some of these guides will be using a program called ODIN or Heimdall. These are incredibly powerful programs and can save you from what would/should be a brick. THEY CAN ALSO VERY EASILY BRICK YOUR PHONE BEYOND ANY RECOVERABLE STATE! Use at your own caution! I recommend reading extensively and asking questions BEFORE using them!
~There are probably more disclaimers I should add so....
OK! We've got all the un-fun stuff out of the way, so lets get started!
My Current Setup:
ROM: Juggernaut 3.7 (BEST RELEASE EVAR) By Team Kang
Kernel: Bullet 2.8b by Team Kang
Theme: ICS Theme by qasimzia512
Info: I've been running Juggernaut for some time now and its my current favorite just because its so damn stable. I gave CM a shot (and as you'll see a few posts down) I'm a bit of a CM fanboi but at this time there are just too many bugs to be my daily driver. Team Kang has put out a rom that has a lot of the features I desire (rotary lockscreen, notification toggles, and many more customizations) while making it extremely stable AND maintaining great battery life (yesterday I got 19 hours before I plugged it in and I still had 21% left after spending most of the day on mobile data and max screen brightness). In fact I did a test one day and just left my phone at home so it was idling all day and dropped 29% is 14 hours. Thats staggering! Chances are when CM gets stable I'll jump ship over to that because its just what I'm used to and what I love but for the time being, I'm more than happy on Juggernaut.
A note for Devs: If I haven't noticed your ROM, kernel, theme, or mod and you'd like it added to this list feel free to PM me and I'll get it up as soon as I can. Also, if I HAVE listed your work and you would like me to modify or even remove the listing, just let me know!
I am looking to root my T-mobile Galaxy S2 T989. I live in the U.S. and just had my phone unlocked by samsung. I'm looking to root my phone and also make sure I've found a reliable un-root method in the event I need to un-root at some point. I came to this site and noticed the site was last edited some two years ago. The link to download the clockwork mod is broken, yet the other files were downloadable. My concern is, one - am I getting the most updated info here, two - are these files i'm downloading the latest versions, and three - why hasn't anyone posted to this in two years. I want to make sure I'm getting current info in regards to rooting my phone because I don't want to brick my $600.00 investment. I just recently had samsung unlock my phone through T-mobile and i'm ready for the next step. My phone is an American T-mobile Galaxy S2.
Model number SGH-T989
Android Version 2.3.6
Baseband version T989UVKL1
Kernel version 126.96.36.199
Build number GINGERBREAD.UVKL1
Please help me find a reliable site to get updated files to root my phone. I tried xda-developers and the androidforums.com which basically leads to the xda-developers site. I'm worried about trying some youtube stuff and I can't find anything newer than two years so i'm worried. Please help.
