Yeh that's about all anyone is going to get until a dev figures out the sbf now that it has finally been leaked

I had it working until the data wipe I did today. Will report back with this attempt here.

No updates available, managed to get wifi tether for root users and ultimate backup to work properly. Trust me, I had it.

It looks like something about having it already rooted originally may help me here. Weird...

possible
Before i mistakenly downgraded i did have root on the update. But if you wipe completly then you will lose root forever (untill root is found)
