Doesn't work.

Flashed this via fastboot, booted into CWM, flashed su.zip, rebooted phone, still no root.

su/superuser wont work. Its not compat with 4.0.4

Thats why you need this modded boot.img so you can have root over adb.

it's tested and it works.

Correct. Not until Chains fixes superuser or SU.

I pasted the logcat to his git.

Out of curiosity then, how are some managing to get SU to work after upgrading to 4.0.4?

I've seen plenty of posts around of users stating it's fine.

Your guess is as good as mine.

Im not sure if they have gui root or adb root.

also, many are getting tricked by the hybrid rom (Like mine) which is 4.0.3 (with 4.0.4 props) and people are saying its true 4.0.4 src built which is 100% lie

That's what I'm thinking. People are updating radios and bootloader and saying they're on 4.0.4.

In order to fix su.

You can try to flash http://downloads.androidsu.com/super...ghi-signed.zip

If you get an assert failure.

You will need to unzip that. and put the su bin in place via recovery then set perm 04755 to it.

Hope this helps. Comes from chains
