You can find a detailed guide with screenshots and all here. It's done with odin.

Step 1: Install Odin v1.85 on your computer then download and unrar the Lite'ning Rom rar file.

Step 2: Make sure that your phone is in USB debugging mode: Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging.

Step 3: Reboot your phone into download mode. To do so: Turn the device off, then power it on again by pressing and holding the Volume Down + Home + Power on simultaneously.

Step 4: Start Odin.

Step 5: Connect the phone to your computer using the USB cable.

Step 6: Wait a few seconds, the Odin screen will show that a device is now connected... Added!!

  • Make sure that in Odin nothing is checked, except the "Auto reboot" and "F. Reset Time" checkboxes.

  • Press the "PDA" button, and select the md5 file.

  • Press "Start". Odin will now flash the Lite'ning Rom, after flashing your phone should reboot.

Step 7: Done! Now you have a fully rooted SGS II with the Lite'ning Rom installed!
