How to Root Galaxy S2 LTE GT-I9210

Galaxy S2 LTE GT-I9210 has all the qualities to impress its owners. But if you don’t root it, you’ll never discover all the other (and many) things it can do. How about we tell you how this works?

If you’ve always dreamed of a rooted Galaxy S2 LTE I9210, you are finally getting your chance to do it. This smartphone was announced 3 years ago with specs such as dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion, Android 4.1.2 and so on. The Build ID we decided to use is JZO54K.I9210XXUAMF1. Other IDs work equally well with your phone; that’s one of the advantages of the rooting method we’re using. The firmware which is compatible with your device is this: XXUAMF1.

The improvements

The tool that we’re about to use for this procedure is called SRSRoot. Unlike other rooting methods out there, this tool is also appropriate when you choose to unroot your smartphone. This software is powered by SRS Server and it doesn’t mind the brand you’re using. Also, it doesn’t mind the Android version your device is sporting. With it, you are offered superuser and admin permissions. The installation is free of charge!

If your Samsung GT-I9210 is done with the rooting and you want an update to a different Android OS, you’ll lose root access. A second damage will be done to the system partition; the latter will end up deleted. But there’s also good news: with a rooted smartphone you have access to many options. One of them: the possibility to personalize the handset. If you’re having problems with the battery, the rooting will make sure it lasts many more hours.

As soon as your phone has root access, you will be allowed to install many new things on it. Like these: root-only apps and custom ROMs. Features your phone has never had before will also be brought to the device. But at the same time, the warranty will be deleted; however, you can retrieve it. Also, make sure you’re owning the correct smartphone or else you’ll have a bricked gadget on your hands.Galaxy-S2-I9210-LTE


The rooting has to start soon. The procedure is in need of some pre-requisites before it begins:

  • the data you keep stored on your Galaxy S2 LTE I9210 has to be saved via backups;
  • a full NANDroid backup is also needed, so generate one;
  • the battery which arrives with your handset must always be fully charged for a rooting;
  • install USB drivers for the phone on your laptop by going to this address;
  • deactivate the notebook’s security programs;
  • turn off the security programs which arrive with your smartphone;
  • USB Debugging must be enabled on the handset;
  • the laptop you use must be flashed with Windows for this procedure.

Step by step instructions
