Samsung Galaxy S II Already Rooted, Detailed Here!

Thanks to XDA Developers, we’ve just learned that the Samsung Galaxy S II super phone has just been rooted. The handset is not even out in all countries and it’s already being messed with, which is OK if you’re into extreme software customization. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t certain risks when rooting the handset…

There’s a quick guide for experienced users here and a long guide for beginners in the same spot. All you need to know is that you’ll be using ODIN to flash custom kernels and custom firmware. You also need Samsung KIES 2.0 installed and some users are reporting that their Quadrant benchmark scores have gone down since they’re started rooting.

You can follow-up the dozens of pages of discussion on XDA to figure out that the problems and risks are before jumping head first into rooting… It does have its advantages though.
