[ Solved ] Rogers - Samsung G2 S2 Lte Sgh-I727R - Root

1 post in this topic


Well my question was is my phone closer to the Samsung 'Skyrocket' or 'Hercules'?

Yes, I can confirm the Skyrocket "cm-10-20130101-NIGHTLY-skyrocket.zip" works correctly. (Note: the Hercules installs/works but the accelerometer does not work at all.)


Rooted Phone - Model as per description. Phone must have su access (Rooted) already on any running stock rom or mod

ADB - Software for running commands on your phone

Files used:

cm-10-######-NIGHTLY-skyrocket.zip - Available from: http://get.cm/?devic...et&type=nightly

recovery-clockwork-#####-skyrocket.img - Available from: http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager

Superuser-3.###-arm-signed.zip - Available from: http://androidsu.com/superuser/

Setup instructions:

1. On your phone download all three files above to your andoid 'download folder' ( or anywhere on your andoid, but the download folder is easyest and will be used for this example)

2. Connect your phone to your pc via usb cable in usb debug mode.

E. Navigate to your download forlder ( Example: ' cd sdcard/Download ' )

F. Run, type ' dd if=./recovery-clockwork-#####-skyrocket.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22 bs=4096 '

Change the 'recovery-clockwork-#####-skyrocket.img' ###'s to the correct file name you downloaded from CockworkMod's website.

Double check the command above with your's a typo could ruin your phone!

G. Run, reboot. ( your phone will reboot! ) or exit and reboot your phone.

4. Your phone now has the 'recovery' boot manager from Clockwork mod!

To enter CWM Recovery mode, turn off your phone and …

Hold ‘up’ and ‘down’ volume and press the ‘power’ button, once it vibrates and you see the Samsung logo you can release the keys.

5. Wait (10 seconds+) in darkness to load CWM recovery...

A. Select ' Install zip from sdcard '

B. Select ' choose zip from internal sdcard '

C. Select ' download ' (or folder you saved the files in from above )

D. select ' cm-10-######-NIGHTLY-skyrocket.zip ' ( change ### into correct file name downloaded )

you need to click and drag the ' No 's down to see the 'yes' option ....

E. Wait for success message, if it fails here start from the begining again or try another CyanogenMod.zip version from their website.

F. from the CWM recovery now run, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, and advanced / wipe dalvik cache.

G. Reboot. Let CM load ( may take 2 min! ) just wait at the logo screen ( First install is slower then later reboots )

6. Rooting your new CWM!

A. See step 5 and reboot into CWM recovery again.

B. Install zip from sd card.

C. Go to download folder and Superuser-3.###-arm-signed.zip

Done! That ends this here!

I normally install Google Apps like in step6, install gapps.zip then go from there, but you’re on your own from here :)
