I am trying to root my Galaxy S2.
So I followed instructions online, I booted in debug mode, connected the USB cable then pressed the up powerbutton to start the mode, I then opened up Odin v3 3.04 and it showed up with a device connected. I selected the correct .tar file under PDA and clicked start. It says "setup connection" and freezes at that.
I tried redoing it because it wasn't working. Eventually I decided to see if it was just the program. I opened Samsung Kies and it couldn't connect. It tried connecting for a long time and eventually just gave up.
The weird this is that when I plugin the USB cable my computer actually recognizes it as a Samsung Device because the first time I plugged it in it installed drivers automatically using Kies.
I tried using different USB ports, tried using a different cable and I tried charging it.
I couldn't tell if it was fully charged but it charged for 8 hours so I'm sure it was charged fully. Still didn't work.
After researching for 2 days and trying endlessly, I decided to see what you guys think.
So let me know if you have ideas! :)
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling kies, now it is connecting with Odin but it wont connect with kies at all. But its now showing this error.
