Root and Recovery for the Bell Canada Galaxy S II HD LTE

Not that many people have heard of the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE. This device is quite similar to the AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket, but as its name implies, features a Super AMOLED HD display. In fact, other than the display resolution differences, the two devices are nearly identical, down to the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor.

Despite the similarities, root methods and recovery software is incompatible across devices. Luckily, this is where XDA Recognized Developer dsixda, of DSIXDA ROM Kitchen fame, comes in. Thanks to his work, the device now has root, recovery, and a mildly debloated custom ROM.

The recovery itself comes in the form of an unofficial port of ClockworkMod Recovery v5.5.0.4. Installation is just a quick ODIN flash away, and once you’ve installed that you can install dsixda’s debloated and prerooted ROM. And if you’re after an even more debloated ROM, XDA Senior Member markdexter has taken dsixda’s base and modified that further with a greater debloat and slight theme changes.

If you’re looking to get started, head over to dsixda’s recovery and ROM thread. If you decide that you want to give markdexter’s ROM a shot, head over to this post.

[Thanks to markdexter and dsixda for the tips!]
