VRUAME7 is impervious to previous bootloader bypass methods. Proceed at your own discretion.

I have not yet delved into the files to see exactly what is included here over MDK. A few users have reported Apps2SD being included and a change in phone status that now displays a "Secure Boot Status Field" in addition to the SELinux Status field.

Flash this file in ODIN (under the PDA section) while your phone is in download mode to restore or upgrade to ME7. This will wipe your phone.

We need a guinea pig to flash this then to try flash back to the old build to see if it's possible for those that want to root. Apparently this new build blocks flashing the pre-release kernel which will kill our ability to root (at this time ). I'd like to get the radios yanked out of the new build so that we can see if they're any better than what's in the old builds.

Already been tested by openyoureyes and you cannot flash back via Odin.

This is not an OTA. You have to use Verizon's software updater on your computer to get the update. And it's been reported that root keeper apps aren't working.

OTA rootkeeper is the name of the app. I'm aware that this isn't an OTA (yet). The application creates a backup copy of your SU so that you can restore it post-update (regardless of update method). It's a method that's been being used on Motorola phones for the better part of 2 years now to retain root through updates. It is file system dependent though and I'm not sure it's supported on samsung phones. Just curious if anyone had tried this particular app yet.

Can we flash this file that the OP posted or only way to update is through Kids on a PC or Mac?

Give it a try and report back. You seem to have a better understanding of the app than most so you would make a good candidate to try it.

It's been tried in another thread this afternoon. Only 1 person AFAIK but failed. I'm not nearly stock anymore to test myself.
