The OTA root keeper will not work on the NOTE. Just wait until someone post a MA7 Stock rooted ROM.

rwilco is the zip update something to run with Odin or a custom recovery? And does the zip file include the modem kernel updates as well as the software?


Thanks

An update.zip can only be flashed through stock recovery and yes you will lose root. This does contain the modem and the kernel and is fairly easy to root.

Re: system update 2/13/2013
Tried flashing the update through the Samsung software update part of settings and tried manually flashing with stock recovery. Both failed since I'm rooted. Thought it might work because I'm stock rooted but it didn't. Anyone tried unrooting with exynos abuse? I see it has the option to. If I were to unroot with qbking's method everything is wiped and the update isn't worth all that mess. Will unrooting with exynos abuse keep me from losing my data and let me get the ota? Can you set titanium to backup to the sd card? Then I might be willing to wipe for the update.

I odined back to ljc with the keep data option.. ran the update than used the toolkit to root. Busybox and twrp.. so here I am with update and my data. Really nothing new here to write home about that I can see.

For those of us on MA5 with the latest Perseus kernel, do we really need this update?

It's a matter of personal preference. MA5 and MA7 seem to be identical to me.

Thanks. IIRC, I thought AndreiLux was a bit more emphatic a couple of months ago about this exploit being a REAL issue (discussed in his Perseus thread). So much so, that he removed links to older kernels, including his own. Having said that, last thing I'd do is speak for him (or even appear to try to speak for him) on this. Just trying to jog the 'ol memory and the "XDA history" of this exploit.

Otherwise, seems some small bugs need to be worked out still? In the Play Store thread, looks like that's a tad wonky now, as well a couple/few other things???

"Out of curiosity"... how much of what's been done here on XDA has been included in later builds, such as the danweb 15-in-1 toggle mod? Point being... I see the danweb 15-in-1 toggle mod out here, and then the exact same thing shows up in a later build. "Coincidence"? Maybe there IS something to this tinfoil hat... Obviously, I have no idea where the Samsung Devs get their "inspiration".
