    Will this also work to unroot? I want to unroot my Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket so I can get the actual ICS Update from AT&T. I’ve tried using Odin and had no success at all. I followed the directions and everything.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE from Rongers (SGH-i727R).
    ◦Samsung Galaxy S II LTE Rogers Canada (SGH-I727R), Android version 2.3.5, Baseband version I727RUXKJ7

    I have upgraded to Android Version 4.0.4 (ice cream sandwich), Baseband version I727RUXLF3, Kernel version 3.0.8-perf-I727RUXLF3-CL611724. Due to this update, does this mean I cannot use this method to root my phone in its current form?

    Thanks,

      head over to SamMobile.com, download any official firmware for your Galaxy S Plus and install the firmware via Odin to revert back to Gingerbread, if you don’t know how to use odin, check this guide that is for Galaxy Tab 2 but you can apply this Odin method on your phone too to install firmware, simply put your phone into download mode, to do so turn off phone, then reboot it by holding down by holding down volume down, home and power buttons. Then connect phone to Odin and start installation…..

    As soon as I downloaded it, all of my fingernails turned black, curled backwards, and fell off… Then, I felt a strange sensation in my groin area… It turns out that all of my pubes had mysteriously welded together into One, Repugnantly Large Pubic Hair… I also was instantly infested with head lice, although ironically, the lice were all in my socks, and they seemed to have been radioactive because my shoes actually melted off of my feet… Within three minutes, I had begun vomiting entire turds, so my wife called 911… Stupid idiot that she is, she inadvertantly dialed 611, and as I went blind, she began a sexual relationship with a customer service assistant at Verizon. Other than that, I would say your advice worked out fairly well for me…
