I can't seem to get it downloaded anywhere. It keeps failing.

Through the browser. There should be no problem. So its going to be on your end.

I towelrooted mine yesterday after flashing a custom rom. worked like a charm.

Got a "System update downloaded/Touch to install" notification. Anyone know what this is? Any news on installing update and still being able to get root with towelroot?

I am sure it will be hacked again. Secure, is not secure. There is no such thing when dealing with things created by man.

May be hacked by another source/person but the person responsible for Towelroot now works for Google..... his job there....finding and closing exploits such as the one that enabled the TR app to work. .
