The time is ripe to root your Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100. And you won’t use just any old tool for this. There’s a special kind of software we’ll introduce you to in this post!
SRSRoot tool is the one-click root method method we will talk about today. This method has many followers simply because it’s extremely easy to install and use. Today we plan on rooting a device powered by this Build ID: GINGERBREAD.XWKD8 (Android 2.3.3). The tool in questions can be used for other Build ID’s, too. With various Android versions and a dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU as some of its specs, your phone will gain access to many rooting pros.
This dedicated tool doesn’t come with a price tag. You will simply have to go to a certain site and download it from there for free. More on that later!
For now, let’s find out what’s so great about a rooting. With a complete access on-board, your smartphone will gain custom ROMs, root-only apps, superior battery life and new features. As far as other goodies go, a rooting means that you will have admin and superuser permission. There is no bloatware to speak of and no viruses. The SRSRoot tool is a method which offers complete support for various Android versions.
They range from the 1.5 version to the 4.2 Jelly Bean variant. This tool is powered by SRS Server, meaning that your phone can be rooted sans flashing it. If you want to unroot your Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 at some point, you can use the same application. The tool we’re using today works with many different gadgets created by various brands.
Not only does the rooting procedure deliver great stuff, it also damages your device. That mostly happens if you use the wrong handset or tablet, perform a guide used for a different device, and so on. Apart from that, your smartphone’s warranty is going to become lost.
You have to go with some requirements for this next part. You must follow them if you want the rooting. These is what the pre-requisites consist of:
- use a smartphone’s that’s running with a fully charged battery;
- create a backup so that you don’t lose the phone’s data once the latter’s rooted;
- create a full NANDroid backup, too;
- enable USB Debugging on your Galaxy S2 I9100;
- your laptop should be running USB drivers for the handset;
- turn off your smartphone’s security programs;
- the security programs that are on your laptop must be turned off, too;
- a Windows OS is required for your laptop.
