    Hi, First thing, must say thank you for the very easy rooting of my Galaxy Fit from one of your other pages. The next thing is there a similar way of rooting a Galaxy S2?
    I know this page explains it, but its just not as straight forward as the one for the Fit. Really all I want to do on the S2 is lighten up some of the stock apps.
    Sorry for my ignorance
    Again thank you for the Fit root all the best Mik

        Pradeep I see my firmware is XXLPX, I updated using Kies, so this XXLPQ is an older firmware ? I am from India.
