Download the CF-Root kernel for the Galaxy S2 and save the file to your computer.
Unzip the CF-Root file without modifying the contents of the file. You should get a .tar file named CF-Root-SGS2_XX_OXX_LP6-v5.2-CWM5.tar.

If you’re getting a file named zImage, it means you’ve extracted the TAR file, which you shouldn’t have.
Then download Odin3 v1.83 from here and save the file to your PC and Turn Off your device.
Then hold down the Volume Down, Home, and Power keys to Boot your device to Download Mode by pressing. When you reach the warning screen indicating that you have entered download mode, press the Volume Up key to go on.
On your PC, open the Odin application by double clicking the “Odin3 v1.83.exe” file.

If you don’t get the message, then probably there is a problem with your phone’s driver. Make sure to install the right drivers for your phone to be recognized.
Select the PDA tab and browse for the .tar file that you just unzipped earlier.
Under “Option” in the Odin3 window, make sure that only “Auto Reboot” and “F. Reset Time” are checked. The other options should style=”text-decoration: underline;”>not be checked.
Press the Start button in the Odin application to flash the CF-Root kernel.
After the installation process is Done, you will be prompted with a PASS message written in green background.
After CF-Root is installed, your phone will automatically reboot itself. Allow the phone to completely reboot before disconnecting the USB cable.
Check whether you have successfully rooted your phone by launching the Superuser app on your phone. The Superuser app ought to have been installed when you flashed CF-Root.
As an added bonus, ClockworkMod Recovery is also automatically installed on your device. Use the CWM application to boot into recovery mode and create backups, restore backup images, or install custom ROMs.
if you’ll follow the steps accurately you can do it without of any trouble and the credit goes to Android Authority for this great effort.
