You know how I can do the root and GS2 unroot on my device without activating the triangle and the counter ?
thanks .....
I hope the developer releases an update to this in my ics is the best tool .
hello and sorry if I'm unclear are not good at English ....
The exploit used in this toolkit was patched back in November of 2011. No more updates well come from the exploit devs.

Sent from my phone, please excuse any Swypos.

Default ICS

My O2 network has an ICS update. Do I have to unroot the phone via the v1 unrooting file?
Or can I go straight into update.
If I do a straight update, will my phone maintain root like in this video http://android.service-light-reset.com/tag/zergrush/

PS disregard the signature

I recommend looking for a pre-rooted version of that ICS update for your phone. You won't need to unroot it & zergrush won't work with ICS.

If you do go with the standard update, you'll need to find a workaround/exploit for getting back root with ICS.

Would something like this work? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1501719

I decided to bite the bullet and did not unroot my GB2.3.4.
The update OTA went fine, and once it updated it started optimising all of my programs, perhaps to work with ICS, I just ok'd through various messages and gave it time to finish everything. There were hints that messages, contacts etc were updated.
When it came back to life it asked me what network I was on, said O2 postpay and I was very pleasantly surprised that everything seemed to be there. It had rearranged home screens and apps pages but that's no big problem.
Now I was about to start the rooting process for the ICS when I noticed that Superuser app was still installed. I thought, could it be that I still have root? Went and tried Titanium backup and indeed it worked confirming that I still have root. I then went to settings and confirmed Android 4.0.3
In my books that's what I call excellent user experience. Tried a few things in ICS and it seems to me to be just as fast. I had read some negative reports.

I'm glad to know that its gone well for you. That doesn't usually happen when there's an OTA stock update from the cell provider.
