    Not normal but it happens. If you haven't yet pull the battery and boot up to see if you have SU app. If you do update it even though it says you have the current version and do a reboot.

    Until Koush releases the permanent CWM for LTE G-Nexes I can verify that the one over at xda works but after a reboot it writes the stock recovery over CWM, when pushing it don't reboot just flash and go into recovery. Koush said via Twitter he would have a permanent LTE CWM out later tonight.

    Easy fix my friend. In root explorer, you need to delete /system/recovery-from-boot.p. then you can enter it from off mode.

    Anyways, flashed my first rom. However, it took away my 4.0.2 update and won't let me update it to that again, comes up an error.

    Hey guys, I've unlocked the bootloader. How come I still don't have the root access?


    su binary was not found on your phone. This application will not work without root access? (Got this from busy box installer)

    Works perfect. Make sure u have the Samsung_USB_Driver_for_Moblie_Phones_v1_4_6_0 drivers installed though. that's probably everyone's problem

    Putting the "root" folder into C:\ ..so put it in the "temp" folder under C:? Just making sure! Thanks

    Man, the X and the DB both had one click root, kinda miss that :D

    I have a question. In step 2: Extract the contents of Superboot and rename the folder "root." Place this folder into C:\ (you may be asked for admin privileges).

    Should we place this folder on our computer or our phone?

    Sorry if this seems like a really dumb question.
