    Jellybean OTA?

    Anyone else getting notices that there is a Jellybean update to install on their phones? Started getting this yesterday. Haven't done it yet until I know for sure I can still root it.

    Yup, shabby's doesn't work either. Think I'm going to dump this phone and get either the S3 or go back to a Droid. Without root any phone is useless to me.

    Nope didn't miss anything. My point was take your phone back to stock with Odin (which does not require root access) then root the stock ics, then update to whatever jelly bean rom you prefer.

    successfully rooted this with ease by using this one-click

    just install the drivers then run the root.exe as admin & follow the instructions. it's simple
