Default Existing root methods and recent ICS update?

It seems like most of the activity on this thread has died off, but I've seen a couple users facing the same issue I am and no solutions.

I just updated my Tab to 4.0.4 with the most recent (US) OTA update. After using it a bit, I decided that it was finally time to root my device. There were a few posts questioning whether or not the established root methods would work with the newest update, and a few conflicting answers.

Just now, I tried to root using the guide here on Android Forums. Every step worked perfectly, but I checked with Root Checker after successfully flashing the root zip, and it said that I do not have root access. I checked with a few other root-only apps, and was given the same message.

So does anyone have any ideas or solutions?

Thanks

If anyone else is having this problem, I found a zip that works. This is the thread that lead to finding it.

Here's the download link to the zip:
http://downloads.noshufou.netdna-cdn.com/superuser/Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip

It's an updated Superuser zip.

From what I've read, flashing Superuser doesn't give an uninstall option.
Are we better off installing via the Play Store?

For the Tab 10.1, wifi only, model 7510, running official US ICS 4.0.4, if anyone needs the correct files for rooting, I have them.
Just give a holler via PM.
The files are CWM 5.5.0.4, and SuperSU.
And, SuperSU can be uninstalled, and updated via the Store.
These are the files I used, and everything works fine on my tab.
