Well we don’t know if you have got your hands on SamsungGalaxy S II, but some folks already have acquired root on this Android phone. There are a couple of videos circulating around that apparently show Galaxy S II getting rooted with a single tap using GingerBreak Rooting App. However some folks over at XDA have tried this method as well but most of them came out with a nay. As we don’t have a Samsung Galaxy S II with us right now so we can’t test GingerBreak ourselves, but if you are interested, then here is the method:

  1. The first step is to download GingerBreak Root App from here, extract the zip and save APK file on your desktop.
  2. Once done, connect your phone to the computer and mount SD card as flash drive.
  3. Now copy the GingerBreak APK file to SD card root.
  4. Now go to your phone’s settings and enable USB debugging mode. enable USB debugging by going to Settings > Applications > Development and checkmark on Enable USB Debugging.
  5. After this download Astro file Manager from Market.
  6. Once the file manager download and installation is complete, launch the application and install GingerBreak.apk located in your phone’s SD card.
  7. After you are done with installing the APK, go to your phone’s home screen and launch GingerBreak.
  8. Now follow onscreen instructions to root your device.
And in case your device reboots after the process is over and it has essentials like SU installed, then you have successful root. Please note that you can also end up with a brick so please follow these instructions entirely at your own risk!
