Not trying to hijack the thread, but the links in my thread are almost permanent because they're direct links from the source or loaded onto xda.

No you dont put either on sd card only the su-3.0.5-efgh-signed.zip file goes on the sd card.

Odin is a program ran from a pc and the recovery.tar has to also be on your pc to be accessed by odin when you run it.

Once you flash recovery.tar with odin then you flash su-3.0.5-efgh-signed.zip via recovery.

Before I try to talk someone into letting me root their phone... Why is it that people brick this phone? Is it because of different hboots (or whatever its called on this phone) or are people skipping things? because compared to the two htc phones that I rooted with ease this seams like a peace of cake!
If you have found what I said to be helpful in any way be sure to hit the thanks button below!

This phone is very easy to root. The only reason people brick is because they don't read. Just make sure you follow the instructions, and DON'T flash ANYTHING for a different GS2! There have been many people who have bricked from trying to flash a rom from the International s2 etc.

This phone is nothing like htc. Just use Odin to flash CWM, then you put a rom on your sd card and flash it like usual. No hboot to worry about, no having to enter commands into an emulator or anything.

I have CWM installed, followed directions completely. I have tried placing the su.zip on the SD, and the Internal.
Everytime it tries to install it, it gives me an error, and in () is says (bad)
Does this mean that the file is bad?
Did i do something wrong?
I placed it on the internal first. Should it be inside of a folder or something?

Any suggestions or a link to a good file would help.

No folder, just on the root of external sd. It does take people a few tries sometimes to get it to work. If it keeps failing, you could try to re download it.
