I took a quick look at the T-Mobile Galaxy S2 and I am pretty sure the hercules does not use the Exynos 4. It is this piece of information that does not have me worried about my phone!!!

It makes for a very easy root method for phones that are affected.

Samsung will patch it in no time

I think the only thing is that when you plug up the hole with one of the app fixes you lose the camera functionality but you do gain easy root. Not that it was hard before with Odin :-)
