My device is in a wicked boot loop and I cannot get any control over the phone.

If I take the battery out and put it back in, it just restarts again and again. I don't feel like I have any control over the buttons on the phone.

Any way to solve this?
I'm completely willing to restore factory settings, but I just don't know how I could do so because the phone does not shut off, it just continues to restart.

Does it immediately switch on as soon as you put the battery back in, even if you left the battery out for several minutes? You can find a few ways to factory-reset your S2 on hard-reset.com. –  Izzy Feb 9 '13 at 21:56

Enter recovery mode and do a factory reset and wipe cache and install any ROM you like.

It worked for my S2 which got stuck during boot-up. I kept flashing my ROM without factory reset and wipe cache and nothing happened.

It went back to normal when I did those procedure above. Hope it will solve your problem. My S2 is fine and running again. I almost gave up on it.
