Guys, read the OP
to prevent root issues coming from rooted GB, first flash stock LPY and CF kernel with Mobile Odin Pro. reboot and complete setup. reboot into recovery do a factory reset and then flash the Kingdroid rom.
This procedure will work on the other roms too.
Everything should be fine now
Other people may disagree here but in my experience, when moving from any GB rom to any ICS rom I have lost full root if flashing from fully rooted GB to ICS. I think this is why the OP was changed to say flash from stock ICS with full root and not GB with full root.
I always follow this and have never had problems:
Flash Stock pre-rooted GB rom using odin PC.
Reboot into stock recovery and do full wipe - data & cache (this prevents bootloop issues)
Boot into GB
Install GB CF-Root Kernel for your stock GB rom i.e. if your rom is LA6 then use LA6 kernel
Reboot into CWM Recovery
Full Wipe - Data, Cache, Dalvik (this is safe as you are on GB kernel)
Stay in recovery - do not reboot after wipe.
you shouldn't need a full wipe now because you did one safely while on GB kernel and haven't booted since.
Ok. Then, since I am on KingDroid (AbyssNote kernel) I could simply CWM, full wipe and then flash ICS (this KingDroid ICS), correct ?
Anyway...according to your initial part of reply...I'd lose rooting, correct ? Alternatively I could first flash stock LPY and CF kernel but then....I should flash this Kingdroid ICS and might brick my Note.
At the end....it looks loosing root is the best choice. Am I wrong ?
