[Q] questions about rooting
so i decided to root my phone and i got an advice from a friend of mine ( who has a galaxy S2 ) he said this whatever u do just follow a guide posted on xda developers so u dont brick ur phone and get a cyanogenmod rom cuz thats the easiest and best 1 ... i searched here on the forum on how to root the phone with cyanogenmod rom and it got me the nightly version which is a bit unstable as it said ... i like my phone to stay stable tho so i downloaded the 9.1 version but i noticed that all the steps were for the 10.2 version i think .. so are the steps the same this is my first question ?
2nd thing in the steps it said something about recovery which i didnt really get :S clockwork mod recovery i think was the name i dont get what that is ... also there was the flashing thing in the guide it said FLASH gapps and cyanogenmod on ur sd card i dont know how to flash i dont even know what it means :S ... im still a bit of newbie to these rooting stuff but im trying to learn more but i cant find a teacher lol
can any1 please help me i would really appreciate it i just need some1 to explain these things to me and tell me the steps to do to root the phone with cyanogenmod rom ? that would be great
i hope some1 replies
