    I had no desire to know anything about how android works, no desire to learn how to hack/root/whatever my phone, but it was so worthless on ICS, I had to do something. I finally followed the video in this thread and went back to GB, and went ahead and left it rooted.
    The main thing I want to do is make sure I don't accidentally update to ICS again. But, since my phone is now rooted, I'll do some more reading on the GPS fix thread I saw a few months back as that was my only real complaint with the phone and had hoped the upgrade would have helped with that.

    A root explorer is a File Explorer application that has the ability to access and modify the system folders on an Android device. There is a very popular root based file explorer called (drumroll), Root Explorer, but it's a paid App. ES File Explorer is free and also has the ability to access and modify root folders with a few settings changes.

    You need to have the ability to copy and paste that FOTA.apk into the /system/app folder, and you need a root based file explorer to do it.

    to add onto what JayWill said, in order for you to be able to get into your system folder and to move a file there, you need to do the following in the es file explorer settings:

    enable root explorer, mount the file system and grant access to the super user (iirc).

    I've had that file copied over for a day now and haven't received and update request once.

    For more info:

    i tried this last night and it didn't work. terminal emulator worked but in his guide he says after that to accept the ics download. i did this....it froze about 1/3rd the way through, i rebooted but it didn't kick me back to the screen to clear the cache. i even tried rebooting holding volume button up which usually gets me to that screen. it wouldn't work. it kept restarting the download and freezing in same spot. i had to completely reinstall gingerbread. i had my phone rooted with his one step EL29+CWM. not sure why it didn't work.

    mine hung up right at the end, now odin doesn't recognize my s2 and neither does my pc. i get a "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please selected recovery mode in Kies & try Again" error message when powering up the phone. i can get to download mode but it doesn't connect to pc. tried a couple different pcs and cables. guess i'll take it to sprint today and they'll replace it since i have insurance.

    I waited, got ICS through the official upgrade, and it sucks. Nothing to do with rooting or an unofficial install. Thus, going back to GB.

    You won't be disapointed. I did the process a week and a half ago. GB is good, but after a few days on GB, I switched to CM9 ICS and it is great, IMO.

    Jay said in another post it is what ICS is supposed to be. QFT!

    Sorry no. This method only works for the Samsung GSII Epic 4G Touch on Sprint.

    Thanks so much for the guide! It's was simple, even for a noob like myself. Will you all share your battery life results if you downgraded (really upgraded :P) from ICS? Mine was completely awful with ICS.

    Hi, I am contemplating of rolling back to GB on my SG2 as well due to ICS killing my battery within 8 hrs of standby But before i did that i wanted to know if i rolled back to GB with Root access, when the JB update comes around will I still be able to automatically recieve and apply the update via the OTA service from sprint? AND what is the difference between rooting the phone with ICS rather than rolling back to GB and then rooting it and then adding the CM9 ROM thing?? Thanks for taking time out and reading my questions I am very new to the whole Rooting/Flashing/ROM scene and thus didnt want to do something too quickly and regret it later!

    Thanks for the post, I really appreciate it. I made the mistake of trying to root my Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G (SPH-D710) without realizing that the "Zedomax_Kernel.TAR" file that I used was bad. I'm going to try to find root information for another root, and hopefully I won't have to do this again. And just for the well-being of other users, if you plan to root the same phone, DO NOT use the file listed on . The file I used from there bricked my phone. Thanks again for the post!

    Also, does anyone have a link for good instructions on a good root for this phone?

    Im a total noob when it comes to this technical phone stuff and was wondering if I could get help in this thread..

    I had ICS on my Galaxy S2 SPH-D710.But it caused my phone to go haywire at times,auto restart like 10x's in a row and drain the battery.So I downloaded a Jelly Bean update off the Samsung SPH-D710 webpage.The update stalled and now the phone wont boot.I get the yellow triangle error sign only. I cannot get to the hard reset/ factory reset options(holding down Vol-down and power) as it just keeps going to the yellow triangle sign.

    Ive tried this Odin full restore 1-click exe and it gets all the way to the end,but keeps failing at "MODEM"....is there anything I can do to fix that?
