http://androidforums.com – Thanks to this post http://androidforums.com/galaxy-s2-boost-mobile-all-things-root/711411-b... I had my easiest rooting experience but all that method gives you is root access. Other rooting methods seem to require you to change the kernel and install CWM but my phone didn't seem to appreciate the kernel:mad: Do I have to replace the kernel just to get the bootloader changed?
