Yes it is, but I have no way to check if it works.
There is few more NFC apps in the system folder comparing to other roms.

As mentioned previously, yes you can reset the counter. As also mentioned, I noticed there's a size difference between the two so added to the fact that k0nane's "stock" tar trips the counter and is a different size than the Sammobile one, I'd be inclined to use the Sammobile one. Also, why add extra steps like having to clear the flash counter? Might be worthwhile adding a note about that in the OP for those that don't read the whole thread and are unaware of the flash counter tripping situation.

WiFi problems after rooting official Rogers ICS 4.0.4
Hey everyone,
I just updated from stock Rogers GB to the official ICS - no problems there; however right after I rooted it using the file/method suggested above (again, without any issues), I started having issues with WiFi - it seems to be random but say, about 4/5 times, the WiFi would fail to connect after the phone gets restarted - although the WiFi service is running (the WiFi button is green). Sometimes there is also a system flash showing the message "?WiFi available" with a question mark before the message. If I manually stop/restart the WiFi, it eventually recognizes the hotspot and it connects. I have the Superuser & Busybox Pro PROPERLY installed, furthermore, no other program that requires root permissions seems to be having any problems whatsoever (Titanium Backup, Rom Manager, Superuser, Tasker, CallRecorder, etc).
Although I didn't spent much time playing around BEFORE applying the root, it seems obvious to me that this only occurs after rooting - personally I suspect that ICS 4.0.4 doesn't go along very well with this rooting method (mismatching binaries). I am also aware about a known bug in ICS 4.0.4, causing the WiFi to frequently drop - could it be one and the same?

FYI: I tried installing/reinstalling ICS several times: initially I have updated through Kies, than I flashed the ROM from Sammobile through Odin, and then another couple of time I just reformatted the system in CWM and reinstalled everything again.. At first I used some backups from TB (no system files, only 3rd party), but then, suspecting that backups made in GB might conflict with ICS structure, I didn't use any backups at all - just fresh installations - no difference, same problem.

UPDATE: I have flashed & done some tests with SKY-ICS by seanzscreams. Unfortunately, since it's based on the same Rogers' ROM, it comes with the same problem. I guess this only confirms my observation.

Anybody else having this issue?

Well, actually it DOES work while YES, it does give an error - all you have to do is ignore the error and keep trying; the 3rd or the 4th attempt shall be successful and it'll confirm the process successfully completed.

HOWEVER

Super User 3.0.7 and CWM are two completely different things. The Super User 3.0.7 combined with the binaries (as it comes zipped) is intended to root the phone, while the CWM is a set of tools - having nothing to do with rooting.

My concern is that even the developer of the package Super User 3.0.7.zip admits that the binaries were intended for all Android versions up to 4.0.3 - while, like many others, I was hoping to also work with 4.0.4 - which it does...but it doesn't.

A direct reference can be found here.

Ok, I've got a couple of probably very dumb questions. So sorry!
I updated my phone to the rogers ICS using kies. Everything is great, but I no longer have Root.
In reading Copperheads instructions this is what I don't get.
I already have
The the superuser zip on my external sd card, as well as Rom Manager, CWM Recovery and titanium etc. They're all present in my app drawer & as short cuts on the phone. What is missing is the root access, why is the message I get when trying to open any of them Is there no way to flash what's already on my phone? Or do I basically have to start from scratch with Odin So I apologize again for the question, it's just hard for me to figure out why, if everything is actually on the phone now?

quick question
Okay so quick question,
If it's better to use the stock odin tar from sammobile to flash back to stock.
Would it be better to flash the I727RUXLF3(ICS) from sammobile right away or go back to stock gingerbread and upgrade through kies.
