Thumbs up [GUIDE] ROOT/UNROOT Stock ICS Firmware without flashing unsecure kernel

Simple way to root and unroot stock kernel without flashing insecure kernel.
Don't worry about custom counter and yellow triangle, with this method they never appear, because we only rooting, it's a rooting script not a custom kernel.
This rooting script included Busybox installer.

Rooting
  • Download this File first and put in your SDCARD
    - MOD EDIT: Links removed as its the unsafe version...
    or download zip from http://clockworkmod.com/rommanager
    - SU-Busybox-Installer.zip
  • Reboot to recovery.
  • Choose apply update from external storage.
  • Choose CWM.zip and wait until CWM recovery appear.
  • Choose install zip from sdcard or external SD
  • Choose and Install SU-Busybox-Installer.zip
  • Reboot
  • You are done and now your device is Rooted


Unroot
  • Download this File first and put in your SDCARD
    - MOD EDIT: Links removed as its the unsafe version...
    or download zip from http://clockworkmod.com/rommanager
    - SU-Uninstaller-Signed.zip
  • Reboot to recovery.
  • Choose apply update from external storage.
  • Choose CWM.zip and wait until CWM recovery appear.
  • Choose install zip from sdcard
  • Choose and Install SU-Uninstaller-Signed.zip
  • Reboot
  • You are done and now your device is Unrooted


Tested on latest stock Galaxy S II ICS rom.
Tested on latest Galaxy Note by some user (thanks for report)

Note: This method should work for other device with ICS rom, check CWM that compatible for your device here http://clockworkmod.com/rommanager


Mirror:
CWM.zip - MOD EDIT: Links removed as its the unsafe version...

worked perfectly on LPH. I reset my counter with Jig, updated to LPH(the bootloader too) and used this to use CWM and root. I ended up restoring my CM9 backup and now I'm on the new bootloader(feels faster, may be just me) with no triangle. Thanks!

Do you loose the ability to install apps to sd card like when you use CF-Root kernels or is it a safe method?
Thanks

About the bootloader that came with lph, when you select it, do you also check update bootloader in odin?
Thanks

root is there but it is not working.
Tried with titanium Backup.. failed.
What you see here is...
The rambling verses of a bored man who decided he should have a signature but didn't know what
to sign so he just sat there at his computer writing whatever came to his mind and as a result...
...now you know you should have stopped reading a long time ago, don't you??

PS: a simple Thank You does wonderful things, so hit the damn button.

Thanks for sharing this method, will try it out.
But please increase the font size in OP, it's stressful for eyes.
