Try using luckypatcher and you'll see.
Root is there but it is not complete. Some functionality is lost.
Still... appquarantine does work, droidwall also so not all is lost.
Anyway, great work and elegant solution to keep the yellow triangle away.

Try this version http://db.tt/zW591p6W
Busybox added.

If I'm already rooted with CF-Root and I want to use this to fix the SD problem, can I just flash the stock kernel and then use these files to keep root and busybox and CWM recovery?

Thanks!!!
You sir are great, it is working as it should now.
One Little, Tiny problem, every time I reboot to recovery I get stock recovery and not the CWM installed through your patch, HOW COME??

Is there anyway to get to that CWM recovery or does it reset on each boot??

When I "flash" it from stock recovery, it's volatile, reboot and it's gone. Is that expected?

The recovery IS NOT persistent.

So you'll either have to flash a new kernel/recovery via ODIN (PC) or Mobile ODIN.

Mobile Odin will be best choice as does not increase flash counter.

  • Choose install zip from sdcard or external SD
  • Choose and Install SU-Busybox-Installer.zip

What would be the files to flash to retain root and secure storage and still have a permanent custom recovery??
