For me, ClockworkMod Recovery is a must install tool on Samsung Galaxy S II. You can install custom mod like theme, boot animation, application and even firmware with CWM. It is very simple to install them because all you need to do is copy the update zip file to sdcard. Then install it at CWM. No PC or Mac is needed. However, not every custom build zip is friendly to your Samsung Galaxy S2. Be sure to make a full system backup with CWM before apply any update zip. Just restore to previous stage if anything go wrong. A beginner and new to ClockworkMod Recovery? Do check out below step by step video guide to learn more…

Note – You need a CF-Root that matches your Samsung Galaxy S2 kernel version. And stock kernel that matches your firmware.
