Ok guys I am now back on the dd_03072012 kernel, with no yellow triangle. After installing the the stock zImage with adb to remove the triangle I used adb to install entropy's kernel, using adb shell to flash doesn't give the yellow triangle, and doesn't increase the flash counter.

Root:
dowload one of entropy's dd kernels here (get the .tar if using odin)- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=18129028
Flash with odin, or heimdall.
Then use superoneclick- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?p=8532790
You now have root.

I dont have a sim card in my phone and use it as a mini tablet so I cant tell you about making phones calls or carrier services but everything else works fine. The rom probably changes the APN settings to At&t stuff and they just need to be changed back.

Whats is the stock APN settings for ST and I will try them. I just put the sim in it and sure enough it has att apn.

Do have any signal at all or the circle with a line through it?

Also the link you posted is for android 2.3.4 not 4.0!
