    Default Cannot root Viper ICS

    I have rooted this same phone twice before, once using superoneclick with rageagainstthecage exploit when the phone was running Gingerbread, and once again using the universal method with the "runme".bat when it updated to ICS. Since then I have had to factory reset and unbrick my phone because of the security error you get if you uninstall a google app (didnt know at the time) now after this happened nothing seems to work to root it, Superoneclick just stalls on step 7 forever and the universal method seems to work fine and even installs superuser and restarts the phone and goes to restore (although my restore screen looks different) But after it restarts and I use rootchecker it says I do not have root access, I verified this by attempting to use several different apps that require root, none of which worked. I have no idea why it wont root anymore, please help! Also as a side note, I even tried resetting the phone again and not updating to ICS and trying to root Gingerbread again and that didnt work either...

    What version are you on? Zvi or zvk? Several people, myself included have posted elsewhere on this forum about not being able to root on zvk.

    Android version 4.0.4 Kernel version 3.0.8 Build version ZVI.IMM76D Software version LS840ZVI, so I am assuming ZVI?

    Root ZVI and use ota root keeper. It works and you'll have zvk rooted.

    I got an error with the ota, and ended up tot-ing back to a clean zvi, rooting it, running ota root keeper, taking the ota and then restoring from my titanium backup. Hopefully you guys have better luck. It wasn't too bad, in any case.

    Use XDA ICS root.
    Here is where you are messing up. You need to press Restore my data before your phone restarts.

    8.) Choose option 1 & hit enter
    Now the dos text should turn green and a file will start running,
    9.) Look on your phone and the Backup & Restore window should be open, press Restore
    Now the program will run and it will reboot your phone several times, do not disconnect until it finishes.

    Just grabbed a Viper off ebay real cheap to play with. First thing I plan to do is root when it shows up next week. Are these instructions below the current best process, or is there a better method?
