Default OTA update to 4.1 with root?

My phone was updated to 4.1 through the OTA update the released today. I previously had root but after the update nothing would work right and my phone was next to unusable. I managed to get it to do a factory reset and it works fine after that (well minus all of my stuff missing).

Is there any news for a 4.1 root for this phone? I've tried the guide stickied to this form but its not working when ever it goes to upload the files it says permission denied. Am i completely SOL?

That method will not work anymore.

The only current method of rotting this phone after the JB update is to go back to stock ICS, root it and use OTA RootKeeper. After that you can apply all updates

Be advised that the superuser included with s3 root tool isn't compatible with OTA RootKeeper, so you will have to downloaded the leatest version from google play.

Is there a way to update this phone to JellyBean other than OTA? I have it flashed from Verizon to Cricket and don't want to lose the flash. Will there eventually be a rom or file I could use to update it? Sorry for my ignorance on the matter and thanks for any help.

Anyone hearing anything about how to root after the OTA update? I seen the comment about using root keeper but I would rather not reflash and start all over again after just doing it. Been scanning the forums but not seeing anyone really talking about the Stellar.

pretty much the only way for now. i know it is time consuming as i have just done this myself. IMPORTANT: back up everything!!!! move all items to ext storage. after the flash and update, then bring your backups in. i personally didn't so dont make the same mistake. i will say that the time spent to flash back then root, rootkeep then take the ota was worth it. now i'm current and rooted as well as debloated.

Goo.im Downloads - Downloading jb-update.zip

rename it update.zip and flash

You will probably need the first update before this one if you don't already have it.

I figured it out.

you have to flash it using Odin3.07

Getting it into odin flash mode was the difficult part.
I finally had to send the reboot-bootloader command from adb

The other instructions are here
Samsung Galaxy Stellar i200 Stock ROM Image download and install | all samsung phones

I used the rom downloaded from the link that ssweat provided rather then the one in the instructions.
