Hello Peeps,
Yesterday i downloaded and installed Android 5.0.2 on my S2 but i lost my root..
How can i root it again? Just with the latest siyah kernel? or doesn't that support CyanogenMod 12?

Best Regards
Jason

Flash Chainfire's SuperSu zip from his thread on XDA in recovery and you should have root on Lollipop. Google search SuperSu.

If it's CM12, it should have root if you previously had rooted your device. Just check in development settings (tap build name 5-7 times) then you will have to find and select root access for apps. Please read the OP if you've haven't already! :)
