Hello, I'm going to show You how to root your Samsung Galaxy SII Plus
*Including both variants of the phone*


So what you need ?
-Android Firmware version 4.2.2
-USB Cable
Odin (Flashing Tool) version:
-Odin 3.10.0 LINK : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95916177934547981
And also choose your CWM recovery:
-CWM Recovery GT-I9105P LINK : http://d-h.st/II4
-CWM Recovery GT-I9105 LINK : http://d-h.st/bq8
-Root Package LINK : http://download.chainfire.eu/396/SuperSU/
-Brain, and pair of eyes.
How to root your Samsung?
- Open Odin 3.10.0.exe
- Put your phone into 'Download Mode'
(Power button+Home button+Volume down button)
- Connect phone with your PC (USB Cable)
- When you enter in Download Mode, wait for your PC to install drivers
- Odin will mark your Box wih blue color and there should be something like COM:1 (Example)
- Uncheck Auto Reboot option
- Go to PDA (or AP) and find your recovery (Should be in Downloads, My Documents)
- After you checked everything click on Start (For finish it takes up to 20 seconds)
- When Odin says 'RES OK' take out battery, put it again and go to you Recovery
(Power button+Home button+Volume up button)
- Navigate with Volume Rockers (Volume Up-Volume Down)
- Select via Power Button
- Go to 'install zip from sdcard' (If your Root Package is in your Phone Memory/Downloads)
Or to 'install zip from sdcard/sdcard1' (If your Root Package is in your SD Card/Downloads)
- When you've found your Root Package select it via Power button, and install it
- Go back and select 'reboot system now'
Good job pal, you've rooted your Samsung !

If you brick your phone im not responsible.
Do at your own risk.

Hi There,

It goes all well for these steps..

How to root ?
-Open Odin 3.07.exe
-Put your phone into Download Mod
(Power button-Home button-Volume down button,at same time)
-When you enter in Download Mod, you should get blue box on Odin 3.07
-Uncheck Auto Reboot option
-Go to PDA and find your recovery, then click on OK
-After you checked everything click on Start
-It should take around up to 30-40 seconds
- When its finished take out battery, put it again

but after putting battery back in.. i cant seem to get in CWM it just get stuck on Samsung Galaxy Screen where it shows model of the phone which is GT-I9105P. And after waiting for 5 min it automatically reboots and phone starts normal. And if i try to goto CWM it takes me to stock CWM.



Any help?


Thanks alot in advance.
