Root I9100XXLSJ Jelly Bean Leaked Galaxy S2 Firmware

An official test build of Jelly Bean for Galaxy S2 was released yesterday. But since no existing CF-Root kernel seems to work with this new build, flashing any of those rooting kernels won't help at all. So here is a simple tutorial on how to root this new build.


Instructions
  • Download "CWM-SuperSU-v0.97.zip" from here:
  • Rename the downloaded file to "update.zip".
  • Transfer the "update.zip" file to the root of your external SD card.
  • Power off your phone.
  • Start your phone in 'Recovery Mode' by simultaneously pressing the 'Volume Up + Home + Power' buttons. Release the 'Power' button as soon as you see the 'Samsung' logo but keep pressing the other two buttons until you see the stock recovery.
  • Choose "apply update.zip" and let it complete.
  • Reboot and you'll have your phone rooted.
