    The phone I have is d4 with aokp rom with mods flashed in recovery...so I know all abt rooting and hacking for droid 4.
    But a friend of mine is trading his iphone for a samsung s2 for AT&T cause he wants his phone like mine.
    So has anyone here on d4 ever rooted and rom with a samsung or at&t phone?
    Safestrap is so easy to install and run and was wondering if yal have similar experience

    Just don't wanna brick his phone

    i rooted/rommed a skyrocket s2. its nothing like the D4...no safe system. just get CWM, back up the stock rom and flash a custom over the stock joint in most cases...

    hes gunna need something called Samsung Kies though...

    Its a software used on a PC/laptop for contact back up, drivers, media management and what not... kinda like motorola media link

    Since its android, there may be a forum exclusive for samsung phones on this site. There def one on XDA i used months back.
