Doubtful; people saying "Hi Galaxy" is free advertising for them. If it occured after freezing tasks I'm sure that was the source of the problem. Must be SELinux related. Next time, just redo your root; you probably didn't need to forfeit data.

I unfroze everything and it was hit and miss if it connected or not. Reinstalled android problem was gone. Just thought I would offer my experience on this..

On NC5 it was the fastest and easiest root ever.

One of my phone's is a Galaxy S3 using NE1 and since i couldn't unlock the bootloader but, i had successfully rooted it using towelroot.

It has been about 6 months and i never had issues.

Not everyone with a matching phone has the same issues when it comes to Rooting as well as Bootloader Unlocking.

One's bad experience doesn't always mean another will have the same. This all depends on the expertise and know-how of the user as well as the reliability of an individual who provides the information and/or files accomplishing a Root and/or Bootloader Unlocking.

Just my opinion
