Hey Guys, wonder if I could get a little help. I followed the instructions got all the way to the end but I can't seem to restore root. I was already running jelly bean had never rooted before so I followed all the instructions went back to ics and now back at jellybean again and no root.
Any help would be appreciated thanks..

You made a SU backup then temp uprooted and then took the OTA and restored SU backup? Did you update SU binaries after restore?

You sbf to ics, take the small update, root. Update su and update binaries. Unroot with voodoo, install the leak, restore root. Worked for me at least.

I did follow the instructions exactly as stated and all the steps worked correctly but It won't restore root. I will try it again now and let you know if it works. Thanks for the replies...

Ok, I followed the instructions as given, and my update fails due to a build.prop mismatch. I'm not entirely sure why this might be, I haven't been manually editing it, and the only tool I might have used to make a change I thought I undid.

I have the same error. I wonder if it's due to a bad download or maybewe have to sbf from a fresh start.

The OTA and the download both error out in the same fashion for me, so I'm going to start from the beginning and go though all the steps.

My OTA to jellybean kept failing so following these instructions worked great. I was able to keep root and reinstall safestrap.

Edit: I had to download the jellybean zip file twice. The first download kept failing signature verification.
