Thanks to various people, you can now root your Samsung Galaxy S II SkyRocket 4G. If you don’t know what rooting is, let me explain. Rooting allows you to access files otherwise restricted from you, such as system files. This allows you to do more with your phone such as installing custom ROM’s and use various apps that need root permissions.
Of course, there are downsides such as the risk of damaging your phone if you don’t do it correctly. The chance of you doing it wrong are so low, it really is simple. Look at the instructions if you have any doubts. It can also void you warranty, but this can typically be rectified by ‘un-rooting’ the phone if it goes wrong.
If you are okay with that, lets get started!
- Download EasyRoot and the Drivers.
- Install the drivers.
- Enable USB Debugging (Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging).
- Connect the phone to your computer.
- Extract the Rooting Tool and open root.bat. If you’re on Mac or Linux, use the following commands. ‘sudo chmod 755 Linux-Mac.sh’ and ‘./Linux-Mac.sh’
- Wait for it to finish.
Done! As the name suggested, this really is a easy root. Test it by using a app like ‘Root Checker Basic‘. Enjoy the new found freedom! If you have any problems, feel free to mention them below.
