    Default How to root SGS2 without a computer?

    Is that even possible? If anyone knows, I would be very grateful if you could tell me how.

    Thanks in advance!

    No, I'm afraid you need a computer.

    You need to flash a modified kernel via Odin, takes about 5 seconds.

    Since the OP was asking how to root the device I doubt mobile odin would work. I think you need to be rooted first in order to use that app.

    Go to
    epic4gtouchroot.com and go to the root/unroot article. Download the
    unrootepic4gtouchEl29 file there. There are 2 versions. Both provide root. One
    does an el29 factory stock install with data wipe and the other is no data wipe
    factory install. Both have gotten me out of some very sticky situations, and i've
    rooted my wife and all my friends e4gt phones. Pick which one is best for you.
    You dont have to download any other files add you go back to factory stock, no
    yellow triangle plus root 1. Download file to your desktop. 2. Make sure you
    have the proper drivers installed. (download and install Kies to install the
    drivers then disable the program from running in the back ground through
    your task manager. 3. Power down your device and put it into download
    mode. (hold vol. down + power button. Then press vol. Up button to go into
    odin mode. 4. Start up odin3Execution v1.8.1 E4GT-EL29 Restore-Rooted /
    Rooted ND program you downloaded off of epic 4g touch.com. 5. Connect
    your device to the USB (should get a yellow COMM: signal showing your device
    is connected with-> added at the bottom. If not re install drivers.) Click start. If
    all goes well you should get a green PASS: signal on the program and your
    device will automatically reboot. 6. Save this program for emergencies and
    enjoy the stock ROM. If you want to flash other ROMS you will need to use
    odin 1.85 to flash CWM the same way you just flashed back to stock EL29. And
    always make a nandroid back up with CWM prior to flashing any other ROM.
    download app backup and contact back up off the market to be doubly sure.

    if you're already running ICS then this is your saviour. This is what I have used and it works great.

    I would try Framaroot. Here is the link to it's thread on xda:

    I haven't tried it yet myself as I used the Odin method to root, but it says it is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch SPH-D710. It may be just what you're looking for.
