[Q] Bell Canada Samsung Galaxy S2 Rooting/Unlocking (For a Laymen)
If you wish to find if something is idiot proof, I am that man. The simple becomes not so simple when these fingers decided to touch the computer *sigh*. Anyone else who is like me follow along, learn from my mistakes.
Backstory: I’ve been doing a lot of reading before I decided to embark on this adventure of rooting and unlocking the Bell Galaxy 2. Lots of videos and reading forms etc, for basically a 40 second produce. Thinking I have a grasp, I bought my SG2 from Best Buy Tuesday, then the hair pulling began.
Technical: Everything is being performed on Windows 7 64bit platform
Step 1: The first thing I did was went here to get the insecure root and Odin….verified on the phone it would be the KG2 code I would need
Step 2: Downloading Superoneclick
Step 3: With all the applications on hand, I began the process.
-Loading the insecure root through Odin was not an issue, it ran smoothly.
Problem: Superoneclick hanging error message : “peneuter running”
The problem happens after I closed Odin and Run superoneclick. The program runs then hangs with the message “peneuter running” It has a message in the window along the lines “if program is haning turn off degbug mode”, how can you do that that when the usb cable is attached to the phone? The phone simply wont let you do it in the settings. It says “usb cable has to be unplugged”...am i missing something here?
Personal troubleshooting attempts:
Attempt 1 – Thinking it might be the version of superoneclick that might be the issue I downloaded:
Ran the application with similar results. Hanging with the same message.
Attempt 2 – Diging through forms I read that some people managed to root it using a different insecure root:
CF-Root-SGS2_JP_XSG_KG2-v4.1-CWM4.zip (which is the current root on the phone now)
Downloaded, applied it using Oden without any problems used Superoneclick v1.9.5, the same problem, hanging with the message "psneuter running....".
I'm at my wits end. If anyone could provide some assistance it would be of great help.
