It was in download mode and everything I did was correct. Is there an updated version I should be using? Thanks please respond this is the only site I can find for rooting my galaxy s2 sgh-i Checking if protocol is initialised… Protocol is not initialised. I have the same issue. If this is something that can be easily created, perhaps a howto on that subject would be warranted. Does this root require the phone to be on 2.
When I follow these directions, the end result is: Heimdall v1. How can I get around this problem? I have seen others here have similar problems, but they have gone unanswered. Any help would be appreciated. BTW, my phone is in download mode. Can you help? I would consider myself to be a user of average ability. Hi i went through process…and it rooted my phone…and i have superuser etc…but now my wifi wont work… im on mac im trying to root it again and i can get it to work it keeps saying ERROR: Claiming interface failed.
And the sudo line doesnt work it asks for a password to which i dont know….. I tried to follow your video and instructions for rooting my S2 with a MAC and got the same errors almost everyone talked about in the comments above but it appears no one is answering any of the problems. Both ways do not work for me anyway. Description: Displays this dialogue.
I tried both sudo and without sudo but same result. Now, what do I do? Please help, thanks.

Apparently Samsung phones are quirky, try the same usb cable in a different port on the Mac, or another cable as well. I ended up using my car dock usb with another port and it worked on the 1st try. I made an android folder in dowloads and kept forgetting the Android part after downloads. Hi Guys, Just rooted my Samsung Galaxy S2 as per the instructions above and now the middle and right buttons no longer function.
Superuser appears to work OK, and the left button works sometimes, but not all the time. It seems indeed Samsung Kies is the problem. Your email address will not be published.

How to root Samsung Galaxy SII from Mac?
Tammy says:. July 1, at pm. December 17, at pm. Heimdall is a cross-platform, open-source tool for interfacing with Download mode on Samsung devices. The preferred method of installing a custom recovery is through this boot mode — rooting the stock firmware is neither necessary nor required.
Download a custom recovery - you can download TWRP. Simply download the latest recovery file, named something like twrp-x. Select the Cache and System partitions to be wiped and then Swipe to Wipe. If you have any questions or get stuck on any of the steps, feel free to ask on our subreddit or in LineageOS on freenode. LineageOS Wiki Toggle navigation.
