Earlier today we had announced about the leaked ROM which enabled users to update their Samsung Galaxy S II to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread directly from Android 2.3.3. In this post we will showing you a detailed step by step tutorial on how to perform the update.
Flashing your Samsung Galaxy S II is not a difficult task provided that your phone is already rooted and also it should have ClockworkMod recovery flashed.
Before we head to the tutorial let me just make you go through the per-requisites to perform this update :
- Your Samsung Galaxy S II should be rooted.
- It has the ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery installed in it.
- Your Samsung Galaxy S II is fully charged as this update requires alot of time and power and you do not want to be stuck with your phone dead.
Now if you have all the required elements let us proceed to the tutorial:
Step 1: Download DarkyROM2_KI3_Base.zip from this SourceForge Link.
Step 2: Once your download is complete connect your Samsung Galaxy S II to your computer and load the .zip file to the root or parent directory. Make sure that it is not under any other folder.
Step 3: Switch Off your Samsung Galaxy S II.
Step 4: Now press and hold the Volume Up + Home + Power/Lock button until you boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
Step 5 : Now go to backup and storage > backup. You can use the volume up/down, home and back keys to navigate to this menu.
