I've posted the new official VZW NE9 firmware to flash in Odin at the bottom of the post. I need someone to test this to see if it can be flashed back to the NCG kernel to regain root. Flash the NE9 tar file in Odin and follow these instructions. Instead of the 1st direction you will be flashing the new tar. Do not do this if you value root, you might loose it permanently if you can not flash the NCG kernel. This is why I am not testing it. Post the results here please. Thanks and good luck.
