Wink [Q] Is there a way to root the OTA ICS rom on at&t's Samsung galaxy s2?

So yeah... I was in a rush to fix my phone and I followed this tut due to its simpleness (don't know if that word actually exists.)

Thing is it actually fixed the phone and installed the OTA ICS. But it goot unrooted again...

Now, I know I deserve it for wandering out of your ever mercyful xda-comunity noob poultry yard. But I was wondering if you guys know a way to root this thing again.

Tho, I do like the interface I'm curious about the full and pure Google experience.

Thanks in advance my fellas. I'm counting on you as always.

Next time, stop rushing and do some research first. There is no official "OTA ICS". You used a leaked unfinished build, and the wrong one at that. If you found XDA, you should've been able to find all the info you needed in the Development forum.

You should probably Odin back to stock first. Then if you want the AT&T ICS leak, use my guide to install a ClockworkMod Recovery enabled kernel, then flash the UCLD3 leak package by Task650.

No, the OTA ICS cannot be rooted because you can't root that which DOES NOT EXIST.
