Flash CF-Root kernel of said ROM using "the non-working" Mobile Odin
Make the backup you want of your GB ROM
Get the ICS ROM tar, unpack it and replace the CSC file with the one you like, also replace the zImage with the new released CF-Root
Again, use "the non-working" Mobile Odin and point it to the files you just downloaded, replaced and copied to your sd card
Thanks for the suggestions bro, but I'm not planning to do it this way : downgrading then upgrading... ^^
I have had a stock GB version (can't remember which one) which was rooted with a working CWM. I then used "the non-working" Mobile Odin with a (non working ?) OTA Rootkeeper before I flashed a LC1 with LB2 baseband ROM (can't even remember why this specific version. ^^), then just lost root and CWM. I then remembered ChainFire got in trouble when he created the "I9220_ZC_LP5_REPACK.zip" file and can't remember if you were suggesting this one or the "SGN_XX_OXA_KJ1_FACTORYFS.zip", but I then saw all the mess with all ROM based on the chinese ICS leak with the Samsung bugged eMMC driver, that just cooled me down for a while. ^^
I was just curious on how this was going on with this german ICS version and prepared plan on upgrading, but I'm not in a hurry anymore at flashing it even tho I feel itchy at doing it.
Btw, I just remembered I couldn't buy and installed the PRO Odin Mobile version since it needs I get root first and I'm not willing to downgrade before I understand what I'm doing.
I spend almost 18 month at fashing different ROMs and things on my GT P1000, and I thought I knew alot, and now just realized that with GNote and Galaxy S Plus devices I know nothing and I feel I downgraded myself !!! ROTFL
I almost damage the GT P1000 internal SD Card when I tried to downgrade it, got a hardware failure with a Galaxy S Plus that even Samsung repair center couldn't fix, got a cwm boot loop with an ASUS TF101 and now the Gnote all at the same time... So I'll just keep watching at you guys playing with this ICS ROM and get informed atm before I feel ready to do any further changes.
I'll just do a restock clean flash with my TF101.
Anyway, thanks for your contribution mate.

What you will need:
Once you have flashed official LPY (via Odin or Kies) and ICS is up & running...
Done!!! You're rooted, no counter, no triangle, no alternative kernel, no hassle!
