yes I've tried it, but it got some problems. it's like having partial root not full root!!

I were able to get apps work such as titanium backup and I got full root on them. But on other apps such as exposed model, I were not able to get the full root access and therefore I couldn't install exposed models on my device. you can try it yourself, nothing breaks everything is working fine.
