  • You can back up significant data and settings on your phone using custom recovery tool like ClockWorkMod (CWM) or TWRP.
  • Battery level of the Galaxy S2 should be 80% or higher to prevent unwanted device shutdown because of power drainage during the process.
  • Enable USB debugging.
  • Your Samsung Galaxy S2 should be factory unlocked, meaning it is not locked to a certain network carrier.
