I hope at this point most people have their phone how they want it. To me, this is good for 2 things. 1, first get your phone and want completely stock but root. 2, you've played around with other roms, kernels, etc and want to get back to a good baseline ensuring all stock but of course retaining root.

Thanks for thinking of us conservative types that only want stock rooted.

Well there have been 30 downloads. maybe someone has tried it at this point. (some people never post) but I'm sure we'll know soon enough.

I rooted my phone via one of the original methods (Odin file) when it first came out. When I put, the first screen says "custom". I don't think that original method tripped the flash counter.

After installing this via Odin, will I still get the "custom" message on boot?

Foxfi no longer works on jb, right?

Confused. Don't you not need to unlock and flash this with Odin?

I misread. Thought he said flash with cwm.

Anyhow, I'm not doing custom roms, so I'm stopping after Odin. Still interested to the questions I had a couple posts up.

the custom screen means your bootloader is locked. No the original method does not trip the flash counter. You basically use this file just like you did way back with VRALF2 root66 that mr. robinson was so kind to provide us with.

I clearly missed it. Spent the last 5 hours at a soccer tournament and the screen on this phone sucks in the sun, and I probably wasn't paying attention either. Downloading now
