Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Gets ICS Leak and Gets Rooted!
Last week, we found out that Samsung and several carriers around the world are beginning to push out ICS for the Galaxy SII line of the device. Needless to say, the first one to get hit with the update was the original, international version of the SGSII. At the same time, we also know that there have been a few devices with leaked ICS for quite some time (including the Epic 4G Touch, which seems to be getting several doses of leaks in a weekly fashion).
Thanks to XDA member SolsticeZero, we just learned that one of the device’s US variants, the SGS2 Skyrocket, was just blessed with an ICS leak. The leak named IML74K, much like any other “virgin” leak out there seems to need some work in terms of polishing. However, those who flashed this seem to be enjoying it quite a bit.
However, no decent leak is complete without a good ol’ rooting (I apologize if this offends any Australians out there). Having said that, thanks to the quick efforts by XDA Recognized Developer starskyrob, the leak can be successfully rooted. The guide seems to be extremely straight forward as there is simply a zip to be flashed via recovery and boom! Congratulations, you are rooted.
Please take it for a spin and try and report any and all bugs on this leak. Having an official build (even though it is a leak) is by far one of the best things that could have happened to the Skyrocket community, so congrats guy!
Step 1: ODIN CWM
Step 2: Flash Attached zip from recovery.
Step 3: Reboot.

Their original OnePlus One phone was a major success in the mobile space due to its low price yet remarkable specifications - the ultimate goal of the company and their “Never Settle” slogan. We love talking about “the little OEM that could”, not necessarily because they are good or bad, but because their business and marketing strategies are very...
