    Hi all,

    I'm about done learning my new S2 and Android (well still have a long way with Android).

    I would like to get ready to play (probably a bad choice of words) around with 'rooting'

    I do know I need a good backup program and a program to be able to do the actual rooting.

    I wanted to ask here for your recommendations on what are the best of these two programs I should consider getting. I am wiling to purchase one as well, I don't need it to be free.

    I just want the best for this Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch!

    Thanks!

    What's up neighbor! Always nice to see someone else from Astoria here.

    The best back up tools are available after you root and/or install a custom kernel & recovery.

    However our phones use software from Samsung called Odin, with Odin you can flash specific partitions , for instance it would be possible to flash your /system partition with a rooted version without losing any of your app data, then you can proceed to back up your information using titanium backup or go further and flash a custom kernel with clockworkmod custom recovery. Then through recovery you create a complete system backup (images of your partitions) that are stored on your internal storage.

    Stock /system with root:

    [Odin]Stock EG30 Odexed with Root 3.0/Busybox 1.18.4 - xda-developers

    ClockworkModRecovery:

    [KERNEL] ClockworkMod Recovery 5.0.2.3 // Initramfs Template for Devs - xda-developers

    Alternatively you can just install clockworkmod recovery and then install the superuser zip file located here through recovery:

    Hi neighbor!

    Well, if you live that close to me, maybe you can help do a walk through on doing this so I don't make a mistake. It is definitely not as easy as it was on WebOS.

    Maybe we can meet up sometime for this.

    I should ask, you have root this phone yourself?

    I personally found the instructions on the android creative syndicate website a lot easier to follow and understand. It's really pretty easy.
