    CWM is not root its a custom recovery ... if you have bug with CWM then you can install CWM6 or any version....which Android version currently you have in your S2?

    Bro...i am already mentioned in the post that it is only for international version galaxy s2 that is i9100..you have I9100G so it may not work...so flash the official ROM for I9100G using ODIN it will solve the problem...you will get the official ROM at SamMobile
