[GUIDE] Heimdall: Root and Recovery for Samsung Galaxy S2 with Mac and Linux

We already talked about how we root the Samsung Galaxy S2 thanks to Odin software that allow the kernel to flash rom and Samsung devices, but unfortunately Odin is only available for operating systems Windows , but fortunately there Heimdall open-source alternative to proprietary software available only for Microsoft operating systems including Mac and Linux .



The software is compatible with data for Samsung Galaxy S but does not exclude the possibility that it works with other devices, and in fact in our case we used the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the friend's Mac Gaeeez  :-P.

For the S2 root we need:

  •     Heimdall software downloaded from HERE
  •     File Pit available HERE
  •     The CF-Root of chainfire on your build available on XDA
Once you launch the tool and select the tab " Flash "that remains is to start the Galaxy S2 in Download Mode (at the terminal off, simultaneously press Volume Down + Home + Power) and then connect to your Mac and fill in the fields as in the image by entering the order :

  1.     Choosing our files. Pit, leaving the fields blank and Repartition Reboot
  2.     Please Add and choose Kernel
  3.     Select again Kernel
  4.     Choose the location where we have our CF-Root must be in Tar, Zip possibly pull it out if
  5.     All that remains is to click on Start

Once the restart of the terminal and the root ClockWordMod Recovery will be on your Galaxy S2 giving you the chance to pick any number of Roma and mods.

Finally, I remind you that the root may void the warranty, the process only if made ​​aware of the risks and consequences that could entail the king .
