I have a Rogers s2 LTE i727R, running on 2.3.5 kernel 126.96.36.199 (stock)
Long story short, my last phone was the Nexus and it was pretty much an amazing phone; I had no need to root it. It was also my first Android but sadly, I had to change it for the s2. I cannot stand the irremovable Rogers Live and Rogers urMusic etc. in my Market waiting for updates (even though uninstalled) so here I am, being OCD and desperate for a root.
But unfortunately, I am an inexperienced noob and I need some direction from the people of this forum.
I have looked into rooting my device but can't really find a confirmed root or successful guide in rooting this particular device.
My question is are the i727 and i727R's interchangeable? Assuming that the R stands for "Raped with Rogers' bloatware", I would imagine it would not matter.. right?
My second question is which rootkits should I use? There are so many to choose from it's overwhelming.
