ClockworkMod or CWM as they call it allows you to flash custom ROMs. backup or perform other advanced maintenance operations on your Android device. codeworkx from the XDA forums has created a CWM for the Samsung Galaxy S2 (II) that will be used to power the upcoming CyanogenMod 7 (CM7) that we have already talked about a few days back.
If you want you can install it right away as ClockworkMod 188.8.131.52 is available right now for download provided by the developer. First download it from here, and then follow the instructions as provided by the developer himself. You also need to download the Odin. Get it here.

Instructions are pretty self explanatory. However, if you have some confusion about the use of Odin then refer to our earlier guide on rooting the Samsung Galaxy S2 (II) to get the idea. In fact this guide provided by the developer is similar to the one that we brought you before to root SGS2, except that you MUST USE the tar file that you download above instead of the one provided in our earlier guide.
