    Default Rooting Virgin Mobile's Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch??

    Is it possible to root the recently released Samsung Galaxy S2 yet from Virgin Mobile? I was searching online and I've read that it is possible but I haven't heard of anyone who's done it. Also, if I were to root my phone, I know that it voids the warranty or whatever, but if I needed to use the warranty, how can I hide the root? If that makes sense.

    ICS only for now... though I know official JB is in the works and hopefully will be leaked soon. (Last build 12/28)

    Is that!? Jelly Bean!? Cool. Well the thing is, I was reading that someone people were having trouble with the root and that it caused some problems. I'll probably wait for a more efficient method like Gingerbreak when I was back on my LG Optimus V.

    Yes, that's the root method we use to make one click Odin packages. Those packages are generally easier for everyone since you do one flash and done.

    On a side note, I am setting up a build box where hopefully we can bring a copy of Agat's repack to Boost and Virgin.

    Ok I'm not sure what I did wrong but I now have root access but didn't flash the new ROM. It's like I got root but still have the same ROM and everything else

    Loving it. I mean what could be better than a one click where you only have to charge your phone scan a qr reboot and keep it moving? Right, nothing. Thanks to all dev's who got this up and running without having to alter from stock just to get SU access.
