Default [Q] GS2 Skyrocket root?

Anyone know/ sense if the new GS2 LTE Skyrocket phone (with 2.3.5) will be more difficult to root than the i777 GS2?

No. It will be more difficult to reset the binary counter if you trip it. But it won't be any harder to root just because of 2.3.5.

Now if they do something more to try and lock down the phone, that might make it harder to root.

Just like the TSGS2, none of the ISGS2 or ASGS2 ROMs will work on it. Maybe the TSGS2 ROMs will work because they're essentially the same phone. AT&T's said that their LTE phones will have a single combination radio which means no existing radios will work either.

It will be more difficult (but not too much more) difficult to root.

1) Almost surely it is going to be less likely to attract competent developers. Look at the T989 as an example.
2) Download mode uses a somewhat different protocol, so you need the absolute latest Odin, and Heimdall will not work.
*so much sig updating needed*

Actually the TSGS2 is getting some quick development. They just got a kernel now with BLN, with new Governor, and OC to 1.8ghz. Its moving along over there quite nicely

All this can be had on the Skyrocket since they share the same CPU platform.

I would try the zergRush root....if it doesnt work it doesnt work. It will be helpful to the community to let them know.
