https://mega.co.nz/#F!k4MHiAgL!dVuOKeH3eokcwPSNI79ffw (repack and split to 200MB per file with md5sum)
Just grab it, unzip, use fastboot to flash into the phone, update the su binary and reboot.

Caution: You may lose root after OTA update
Caution: YOU SHALL NOT APPLY OTA UPDATE or you will restore stock ROM to avoid boot loop

Currently we have
550ML
Z008_2.12.40.11_preroot_system.zip
Z008_2.13.40.11_preroot_system.zip

551ML
Z00A_2.12.40.11_preroot_system.zip
Z00A_2.13.40.13_preroot_system.zip

For 500CL I need someone brave enough, since the format of the stock ROM is different

* Add Z00A WW 2.15.40.13 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
* Add Z00A CN 2.16.40.10 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
* Add Z008 WW 2.15.40.13 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
* SuperSU updated to 2.46

2015-04-29
* Add Z00A WW 2.15.40.10 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
* Add Z008 WW 2.15.40.11 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
Starting from this version the OTA process will always check if the recovery and system are the same version. Flash recovery.img and do not update SuperSU & su binary if you want to apply next OTA update.

2015-04-28
* Add Z00A WW 2.14.40.19 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
* Add Z008 WW 2.14.40.17 in MEGA (system.img / boot.img / droidboot.img / recovery.img)
Those two builds are safe to apply OTA, but remember: DO NOT UPDATE SuperSU and su binary

Thanks! I wonder how easy it would be for someone to create a CM or AOKP rom now that we are rooted.

I don't know about him but I'm using OSX. It's always fun to root things on my Macbook.

Sarcasm. Hah.
