If I am wrong here, someone please correct me.
Oh, I see what you mean...well, I think most of the references say "stock, rooted" and I just noticed in my post (thank you for pointing that out, I'll correct it in just a second) that I said "completely stock"... I was trying to reinforce that you can't have anything like the framework-res.apk mods and BlurUpdater_VZW.apk mods that I made.
So, yes, mortymouse is correct, you must be stock (.596) and rooted for this method.
edit: and apologies to bpbomber for the misunderstanding.
