For the 501 ICS, and the Stock ICS releases, yes, you are correct in you will need the unlocked Bootloader to get /System R-W.
As far as I know, the previous version of the root tool, only gives you half root on a stock ICS Bootloader and Stock kernel.
His new version 6, I have no idea what it does, as my previous question went unanswered.
The new ver6 is 43mb exe extracted. And no idea exactly what it does.
Does it install a new unlocked bootloader?
Can you run it on a previously rooted (with same tool) device?
Are there any changes in the remounter app that would benefit anybody with the previous version?
Forget facelock and the acer lockscreen for the 501. Not in the framework to support it.
Just some questions that go unanswered.
