Very annoying things on galaxy S2:
1. They have proprietary codec for camera in HD resolution. So there are no car recorders that could support recording in HD
2. Not possible to talk over bluetooth headset if external speakers are connected.
3. Some OS issues so that not possible to record calls that are going over bluetooth headset

gs2 fan, 06 Jan 2012why do you want to root this? rooting is for the advance users the phone as it is works and ... moreI rooted because I wanted to install/use "AdFree Android", that removes all ads from adsupported apps and games, and it also removes all adds when browsing on the Internet using any browser. DroidWall is a firewall that needs root, and I use Titanium Backup to backup my apps and games..., and I also use Chainfire 3D to play games made for Tegra 2 games.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2012don't root ur phone.. u will loose phone's warranty.. u may also end up bricking ur phone.. ... moreIt is almost impossible to brick S2 because of the "download mode", I have actually not heard of anyone truly bricking their S2! You can get the warranty back by installing an official stock firmware and use a USB-jigg to reset the "custom binary counter"!

i am using vodafone and m from gujarat. i asked customer care they dont see any prob from their side.

rooting is for the advance users

so do you now getting the 2 days performance?

how are you ? how is your case? hope you had a good break.
as someone else suggested, just try to update via your phone, but connect to wifi first, that should work. by default you should have the 2.3.4 and not 2.3.3 if you in UK!!
so I am rather surprise with that!!
let me know how you got on!
any other new discovery? I love this phone everyday it has truly changed my life. :-)
