Default Clarrifcation - LT15i 4.0.2.A.0.62, 2.3.4

Hello,

Been looking around on the forums, and kinda got a jist of how this works for the ARC, I've rooted my own Samsung galaxy S2, but Im trying to do the same for a friend.

as mentioned hes currently running 2.3.4 on LT15i 4.0.2.A.0.62. From what I've read you have to downgrade to .42? if the bootloader is locked. however it it is unlocked (which I think it is/is unlockable) then what do I do next?

I plan to root the phone then probably install cyanogen mod on it instead.

Thanks

You got 3 options with unlocked bootloader

1 you can still down grade to .42 then root with either flashtools or with zergrush easy root method.

2 with unlocked bootloader flash a custom kernel that has root already. Ie doomlords

What ever you do if I bootloader is unlocked r do not update over the air as this will brick you phone.

3 Out perhaps another option would be to flash ics room and get root very easy look for binary part in dev section.

Hope this helps
