I've did all the 3 steps with out errors, after the reboot it keept telling me that the phone has been granted root persmission but when I want to move a file from the SDcard to /system or other folder I'm receiving an error: warning cannot move this file or something like this. I don't know why I'm getting this error because the phone is rooted

Can anyone help me out with some advices?

Thank you in advance!

As you haven't rooted once you need adb drivers (try google it " adb sdk or adb drivers ") then flashtool, it's in the development section I think, then proceed as I said in the post

OR just download flashtool (around 143mb zip) and install all drivers from the drivers folder in the zip

I'm using File Explorer, not Root Explorer .... but on ICS (other version, previous that 4.0.4) I was able to use also File Explorer for moving files on /system

you don't root the the kernel, you root the system. the 4.0.4 kernel prevents us from rooting the system, thats why we flash the 4.0.3 kernel before rooting.

Hello I had some trouble after the Root process with the apns using the "French Firmware Ready to Root" I was able to download the Internet connection settings from my provider but I coudn't change the Apn Manually. Settings terminated itself.

No Issues with "Global Firmware ready to Root"

My Place is Germany!
