Thanks so much for this technique. I've never rooted before, and I decided to give it a go, and it worked like a charm. You sir, are a prince among men.
From that you might well correctly infer that I'm a root noob. I am indeed. I've been trying to figure out what to do next, basically. Scouring forums as best I can, I have downloaded and installed a couple of things. ROM Manager and Safe Strap, for example. But I honestly don't know how I'm supposed to try out different ROMs. Most of the posts I see are old, and I just don't know if I can rely on them. I've also seen posts suggesting that there's only one ROM available now for bionic on JB 4.1.2. I am a little afraid of borking the whole thing by doing something based on old information that I can't follow anymore. Maybe I should have started a new thread, and if so, perhaps a kind mod can move this. I'm just looking for some basic advice about how to actually take advantage of root. Some links to things I can rely on? Anything. I get that I'm asking stuff that probably everybody here knows, and for that I apologize. I sincerely have tried to figure it out, but I'm just not reaching the comfort level of understanding that I'd like.
So any pointers, tips, anything, would be immensely appreciated. I think I've backed up my stock ROM. I don't think I've done any partitioning. If there's some old ICS root post that walks me through how to do stuff and I can rely on it even tho I'm JB now, that's great. Nobody needs to reinvent the wheel! But some words of advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if the site allows PMs, but if so, feel free to PM me. I have the whole night to mess around with this, and I'm really hoping to have some fun.
Thanks, and again sorry for the noobster post. And thanks again and again to the OP who posted the awesomely easy root technique.
Been trying without success, but today I got as far as daemon started successfully. Message on phone says "loading" but nothing is happening. the command screen went blank after about 5 minutes. How long does it take for this to load? or has something gone wrong?

Finally got mine working, not sure what the problem was- perhaps updating VB resolved whatever unseen tweaks I had enacted =)
However, I'm having one strange issue- whenever I reboot, my Notification sound effects are forgotten [though easily adjusted]. Any idea what's up with that? I use files saved on my SD card for my ringtone/text message notification, only oddity I can think of.
