  1. Can you convert an AT&T Galaxy S2 I727 to T-Mobile (my carrier) default software / tools?

  2. Worked perfectly, thanks a bunch for these resources. I personally prefer ClockWorkModRecovery, which I installed by downloading ROM Manager from Google Play; but the method is the same.

    To Dominic Asta, I’m using my Skyrocket outside the country on MovieStar. There are several sites that instruct you on how to unlock the Skyrocket for use with any carrier (there’s a unique code to input for each phone), but you gotta get your credit card out. I rather doubt that AT&T is going to be very helpful, but maybe T-Mobile will be more cooperative. I had a local phone-geek-shop unlock it for use on ANY carrier, at a cost of a little under $20, but I’m not sure if such resources are available in the U.S. Check around for what works for you.

  3. I just got mi phone today and its already rooted, thanks to you, works great
    by tha way, Im from Mexico, hi to all

  4. This is not working for me. Odin will not even flash on my phone. I can’t get it to pass and I have checked everything several times. It just says All threads completed. (succeeded 0 failed 0). I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

    1. it looks like it is not flashing at all! You have a computer to device connection issue.

    1. No, So sorry to tell you that Odin will only run on Windows computers. There’s a Heimdall tool that works on MAC but I am not very familiar about it.
