I ended up using the new Stump root method, seemed dummy proof and a lot easier. Worked flawlessly and I'm now backing up all the data with titanium backup. Thanks for your help!

Hey no problem. Stump root was just a few days too late for me, but it's definitely worth looking into learning ADB commands on your mac. Try playing with your old phone (if you have it and it's rootable). You'll learn a lot and you never know what root methods will be available in the future. They all start with adb before they get packaged into a nice little app like Stump root.

I have my GS3 that I will experiment on using adb. Doesn't hurt to learn a new method

Are the end results from StumpRoot and this IORoot the same?

Any end-of-the-day difference, or pros/cons of doing it one way or the other (besides the task of actually doing it)? (Going back to stock the same, OTA's handled the same, etc)

TIA

Should be no difference. Stump root is simpler as it's a one click app.
