UPDATE: Applicable to any GT-i9100 4.1.2 firmwares

The most easiest way to root LS8 is to flash CWM-SuperSU-v0.97.zip through stock recovery

Advantage: NO YELLOW TRIANGLE

Steps:
1. Save file to external sd card
2. Shut down
3. Open stock recovery (press power + vol up + home button)
4. Install zip from external sd card
5. Select the file "CWM-SuperSU-v0.97.zip
Wait and reboot

For those who don't have external sd cards.. click this thread:

Flashing the latest siyah and philz kernel can also root this rom. To remove the yellow triangle. Use triangle away of chainfire

Goodluck on rooting guys!

To UNROOT?
reflash the XXLS8 4.1.2 official firmware

Re: Steps: Rooting xwls8 4.1.2
Just a note, for the above to work,you need an external SD, not internal from the phone.

Edit: I know you have mentioned it, but many people like me, tried to flash it from internal SD.

hi
i am pretty much newb at rooting and flashing.
i flashed the official jelly bean on my samsung s2, now i want to root it!

But i have a problem, i dont have sd card in my phone, so i have to flash using internal card.

In recovery i only have :
apply update from adb
apply update from external storage.
appy update from cache

When i chose "apply update from external storage" i get E:Failed to mount / sdccard ( No such file or directory )
I didnt tryed the two other options, as i dont have what they do/mean.

No option "install zip from external storage"
First time rooter here.

When I got to stock recovery (fresh install of official spanish JB firmware), the only options that I see are:
1. reboot system now
2. apply update from ADB
3. apply update from external storage
4. wipe data / factory reset
5. wipe cache partition
6. apply update from cache

Is option 3 the same as "install zip from external storage"?

This method is very good, but is there a way we can unroot the phone if we don't want root anymore at some point?
