this is all too funny, on XDA its mass panic with people flashing non matching kernels and ranting on and on, wonder what they have to hide.

Given that some may have this on their phone and it has been on a while what is the harm in waiting till more info comes out on how to sort. Basically no one knows much at all it is really very entertaining.

it makes you wonder if iphone also has such programme installed (the truth is, you will never know if you use apple products - being a closed system/tight control etc)

now, can someone help me? i rooted my moto defy with super one click and easily change to CM 7.1. i think it is time for me to put cyanogenmod onto my sgs2 (bought from vodafone nz) - it is still running on stock 2.3.3, and there is no formal update until now.

i have rooted the phone with zergrush technique. unfortunately, with this method, it doesnt install clockworkmod recovery. i have attempted to install clockworkmod using ROM manager. for some reason, it failed this way and keep going back to the stock recovery - i read in xda that it should work this way??? it seems like, i have to start all over again and reroot the phone with different technique. can someone offer me a simpler step since i have already have my phone rooted?

second question, how do you backup 'stock' recovery?

All in the SGS II faq below.

Basically, you did it wrong.

Yes, Apple does have the same programme installed. Was reading about it yesterday...link here: http://mashable.com/2011/12/01/carrier-iq/ 

It appears it's not actually active on iOS 5 though.

really? 
zergrush is now considered the safest/fastest/easiest method to root Wink


now, i have found the solution to get CWM after rooting it with this technique:

rooted the phone with zergrush technique (less than 90 sec)

install DarkyROM2 tool app from the market (less than 60 sec)

download latest siyah kernel (less than 30 sec)

launch DarkyROM2 tool and install the kernel (less than 60 sec including reboot)

Now, latest clockworkmod recovery v5.0.2.7 is in my phone! Problem SOLVED!

Flashing it via Odin would have taken 30 seconds and without the risk of using 3rd party hacks.

The SGS 2 is designed by Samsung to be user flash-able. In fact, when you boot into download mode it warns you about the risks and then allows you to go on with a button push.

Anyway, I'm glad you are now flashing custom roms and kernels and I expect your will enjoy it a great deal. You did, however, do it the complicated way.

Just my opinion, you asked on here about a problem, Brendan quite rightly stated you had done it wrong and offered solution. You come back making a statement that zergrush is the "safest/fastest/easiest method to root"says whom!. I'm certainly no expert but had never heard or seen of this on any threads I follow on SGS2 on xda or darky's. It may well be recognised by some but not widely known by all so maybe a bit of thanks for the help but I found my way would have sufficed.

just my opnion :) and like Brendan good to see you sorted it out and happy flashing.

*facepalm*

i did ask for help here and i specifically asked if someone know how to install CWM recovery on a rooted phone. i was not offered any solution to my problem, in fact i was told to do it 'different' way - there are already lots of guides out there on how to do that

safest/fastest/easiest < this is my own word - can you see the wink Wink in that reply ? however, if you look at xda or other android forums / blogs, some do recommend this new method. from what i read last night, even galaxy note can be rooted this way. there is already one developer in xda started to develop an app to root it this way. if he succeed, rooting would be much easier for someone like me who cant be bothered reading wall of texts. this zergRush method is quite new and DooMLoRD has made it easier

For those interested, the zergrush exploit does not work on 2.3.6 at this time.

quick question about restoring after rooting. I have used the Ti to restore but the homescreen's widget link failed and had to reload, all my angry bird level gone?! Ringing tone had to redefine, is that normal?

p.s flashed to Fluxmod last night and flash to latest siyah 2.3 just now. everything looks good!
