This post no longer applies, revolutionary works on GB.






I am repacking and testing the GB rom now for root users, and will post it shortly. If you flash the GB update, you will patch the temproot exploits used in AlphaRev's s-off process.

AKA dont update if you want root.

Bootloader is the same as the stock on in the GB leak, I have repacked it to be root friendly, and will upload when i have time, not going to rush since only a few are s-off

Can you package it with the Over-clocked kernel like Gunther did with his Incredibly DEbloated ROM?

I'm not showing an update available when checking for updates on my phone. If I DO happen to get this will I be able to root later when its available to the public?

No I won't be packing it with my OC kernel, if compatible I will pack a GB version of the kernel seperately.
