I'll wait after an already rooted version as I also need to change the CSC file.
Search and you will find your answer mate

You can now flash a prerooted GB ROM with no wipe option, thus gaining root without losing data

Flash CF-Root kernel of said ROM using "the non-working" Mobile Odin

Make the backup you want of your GB ROM

Get the ICS ROM tar, unpack it and replace the CSC file with the one you like, also replace the zImage with the new released CF-Root

Again, use "the non-working" Mobile Odin and point it to the files you just downloaded, replaced and copied to your sd card

Profit
Thanks a lot chasmodo, great friends are rare these days

Just a noob question. I'm coming from CM9. Do i need to flash zImage in kernel using mobile odin to get root? Or just flash the *.md5 file without the zImage?

Thanks in advance.

Guys I am currently running criskelos v2 ICS. Is it fine if I flash using mobile odin?? Or do I have to downgrade to GB and then flash using mobile odin? I will be following Dr Kretan's method, just not too sure if I can flash directly over criskelos.

Contact ChainfireXDA if you want to have alternative payment methods..
Nope ! I'm in the same position with google and my CC account... ^^

I once asked the same question to another dev I wanted to pay his app, but he never replied so just wondered if it was allowed to ask this question...

To be safe, downgrade to GB. The extra 10 mins will be worth the piece of mind

Hmmmm, maybe you could remove the actual one from the german ICS and replace it with the one you want...

Or make the Cache.img file a tar ball with -cf option and flash it with Odin PC or Odin Mobile (???) ??? ^^

Post Easy root method, no counter, no triangle, no hassle

Just to let you all know there is another easy root method. It fits the needs of those who don't want to increase binary counter and want to avoid that annoying triangle, I mean, don't want to flash an alternative kernel... or aren't rooted already and, consequently, aren't able to use Mobile Odin.

What you will need:
Once you have flashed official LPY (via Odin or Kies) and ICS is up & running...
  • Copy the files you've downloaded to the external SD
  • Turn SGNote off
  • Hold Volume Up and Menu keys down and press power button til Sammy's logo shows up
  • Use Volume Down to highlight "apply update from external storage" option
  • Press power button to select
  • Use Volume Down to highlight CWM.zip
  • Press power button to select
  • Wait few seconds til ClockWorkMod shows up
  • Tap on "install zip from sdcard"
  • Tap on "choose zip from internal sdcard"" (don't ask me why! )
  • Tap on SU-Installer-signed.zip
  • Tap on Yes - Install SU-Installer-signed.zip
  • Wait a couple of ms
  • Tap on "Go Back"
  • Tap on "reboot system now"

Done!!! You're rooted, no counter, no triangle, no alternative kernel, no hassle!

CREDITS GO TO Rachmat3 @ http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1501719 ... I just tested the above mentioned root method on Galaxy Note LPY.

I gave up on Kies last night and went home from work. This morning I rebooted my laptop/PC after the first update failed (always worth rebooting Windows, lets face it, especially after new driver install like the update seems to do) and then left it this morning while going for breakfast. Came back all OK.

So far, so cute. Feels more responsive for sure.

Thanks for the suggestions bro, but I'm not planning to do it this way : downgrading then upgrading... ^^

I have had a stock GB version (can't remember which one) which was rooted with a working CWM. I then used "the non-working" Mobile Odin with a (non working ?) OTA Rootkeeper before I flashed a LC1 with LB2 baseband ROM (can't even remember why this specific version. ^^), then just lost root and CWM. I then remembered ChainFire got in trouble when he created the "I9220_ZC_LP5_REPACK.zip" file and can't remember if you were suggesting this one or the "SGN_XX_OXA_KJ1_FACTORYFS.zip", but I then saw all the mess with all ROM based on the chinese ICS leak with the Samsung bugged eMMC driver, that just cooled me down for a while. ^^

I was just curious on how this was going on with this german ICS version and prepared plan on upgrading, but I'm not in a hurry anymore at flashing it even tho I feel itchy at doing it.

Btw, I just remembered I couldn't buy and installed the PRO Odin Mobile version since it needs I get root first and I'm not willing to downgrade before I understand what I'm doing.

I spend almost 18 month at fashing different ROMs and things on my GT P1000, and I thought I knew alot, and now just realized that with GNote and Galaxy S Plus devices I know nothing and I feel I downgraded myself !!! ROTFL

I almost damage the GT P1000 internal SD Card when I tried to downgrade it, got a hardware failure with a Galaxy S Plus that even Samsung repair center couldn't fix, got a cwm boot loop with an ASUS TF101 and now the Gnote all at the same time... So I'll just keep watching at you guys playing with this ICS ROM and get informed atm before I feel ready to do any further changes.

I'll just do a restock clean flash with my TF101.

Anyway, thanks for your contribution mate.
