Yea I didn't mean to complain, just wanted to make sure I didn't do something obviously wrong for someone more experienced (like using a random root stock GB rom instead of a specific one). I will try the mobile odin way, and thanks to the OP, the easy procedure got me to try ICS and I don't regret it !

I am currently on 1.4.26 following same procedure beause I wanted a crisp clean install starting from Gingerbread. Please give it a try again following it step by step. Don't forget to post here when you get it to work.

I did step by step this procedure many times, with different prerooted GB ROM but it doesn't work for me. I'm 100% sure, that I didn't miss any step. After flash ICS ROM still have only partial ROOT, SuperSU alows app for ROOT access but app doesn't work, like ROOT explorer with copy to the system folder and flash over CWM doesn't work too.
Eventually I had use ICS-repack and now I have full ROOT.

Came from GB to Criskelo ICS V2 LP6 rom about a week ago using the Repack method and was happily trying out the new ICS roms. This afternoon, I was trying out AlBa ZCLP6 Full Repack v3 and lost root.

So I had to get back to GB pre-rooted rom to work up again. This time round, after the Repack and flashing Criskelo ICS V2 LP6, I got stuck on Samsung Logo. Tried at least 5 times and still the same. That's when I came upon this and decided to give it a try.

I'm glad to say that it worked for me. On the other hand, I find it strange that the AbyssNote 42 Red Touch kernel UI doesn't have a return back to the previous menu, or I maybe I couldn't figure out how to do it. So for each of the step, e.g. after factory reset, I had to pull out the battery, insert it back and let it boot up to recovery, do the next step etc. After I finish the last of the recovery step, I got back to CWM recovery, and proceeded to flash my Criskelo rom.

If anyone can share with me what step I had missed to step back in AbyssNote, that would be helpful if I have to revisit this again.

Yeah I also got confused first times I tried to used it

But there is a back button in the left bottom corner (IIRC)! However, for it to work you need to press (or touch specifically) on the "up" button and the "down" button which are next to the back button and then it will work!

Weird stuff I know

This is confused for me also. I use always the Power + Vol Up or Down. It works well. Not confused.

I've done a wipe of everything I could...all storage mount points (cache/data/system/emmc/even my sdcard), dalvik cache, and even battery stats. You do not need to be fully rooted on anything to use this method. I can't speak for all ROMs, but I know Stunner and Liquid for example have root built in. So this is as close as it gets for the best and simplest method if you truly want a "clean" install.

Also, I'm under the impression that flashing/wiping from this kernel is 100% safe...even when installing ICS ROMs/coming from ICS ROMs with botched CWM recoveries. Is this a correct assumption?

I'd really like to know that as well...Never had a b0rked CWMR myself, so I don't know.

Same..but with the ICS kernel leaks and CWM implementations on the Note...they've already happened twice. Once with angelom's touch CWM kernel, and once with Stunner's LP5/LP6 kernel. I'll just assume it's "safer."
