How to root Samsung Galaxy S2 Lite with Android 2.3.6

This is the first guest post on AndroidPIT Brazil. Our forum member and forum forum moderator Jefferson Hoffmeister has decided to make a tutorial where he teaches how to Root of the Samsung Galaxy S2 Lite, or Samsung Galaxy S Advance, as known outside Brazil.

I remember that any process of releasing Root access, besides the loss of warranty, creates risks of damage to your device, so I am not responsible for any damage that may occur to your device. I recommend Rooting with the battery charged.

1 – Download the file for Root here.

2 – Unzip the file and run Samsung USB Drivers.exe. If you already have KIES installed on your PC, a message that you already have the drivers is likely to appear, in which case proceed to the next step.

3 – Open the file Odin3 v1.83.exe.

4 – On your mobile phone, enable the USB Debugging function (Settings> Applications> Development> USB Debugging).

5 – Turn off the player, then hold the Volume down + Home + Power buttons (this will make the player go into download mode), hold these buttons until the following picture appears:

6 – Connect the USB cable to your phone and PC (remember that Odin should already be open) and press the Volume up button.

7 – A similar screen will appear that can be seen in the following image:

8 – After this screen appears, Odin should recognize the connected device, appearing the following screen:

9 – In Odin, look for the PIT field and load the previously extracted GT-I9070_EUR_XX_8G_20111220_KL6.pit file.

Now, in the PDA field, load the file rootkernel.tar.md5.

11 – Make sure the options checked are the ones shown in the following image:

12 – Click on Start and wait for the process to finish. Your device will restart. When the smartphone reconnects, remove the USB cable and turn off the phone. Repeat step 5 again.

13 – Wait until the following screen appears:

14 – Reconnect the USB cable to your phone and PC and press the Volume up button. The following screen appears:

Now, in Odin, in the PDA field and load the file xxld1.tar.md5.

16 – Click on Start and wait for the process. Your phone will restart. When the unit turns on, remove the usb cable.

17 – Now install the RootExplorer and Superuser applications. To do so, simply download the .apk packages that are in the file provided above and then install normally, or download the applications by clicking on the links.

18 – Okay, your device is already rooted!

PS: After installing Superuser, I recommend upgrading the binary. This is done in the app itself under Options> Update Binary.

Note: Always keep USB Debugging checked. If for one reason or another you have to uncheck this option, Root will be temporarily unavailable, but will return to normal when the option is enabled again.

AndroidPIT rooted this Samsung GT-I9070P and the operation went smoothly.
