Background: n00b and lurker to XDA. Thanks to all the devs here that allowed me to root my RAZR, Note3 VZW and XYBoard MZ617 ICS.

I upgraded to JB 4.1.2 thanks to RunAndHide, but foolishly did a FDR on ICS before flashboot JB, thus losing root, Safestrap, etc etc.

Searched the xda forums, etc, pretty much everything. Then I ran across this post

on DroidRzr .com by kc6wke'. It directed me kc6wke's thread here:

Which in turn directed me to k1mu's thread here:

I just wanted to make sure it was not a mistake because I have been waiting for a root method before making the jump = ) The whole samsung thing threw me off.

100% confirmed!! XYboard 4.1.2 root method
In my situation the update for jelly bean would fail over and over so I used RSD and the stock 4.0.4 Fastboot image to restore my Xyboard,. I then took the OTA to 4.1.2 and used the root method in OP's 3rd link and it worked like a charm!!

Hey you wouldnt happen to have those fastboot files anymore would you? if so would you mind posting them? I just bought a mz617 off of ebay but has no stock recovery. I was hoping to what you did and flash 4.0.4.
