    LMAO -- well played, sir! Well played ;) :).

    EVILTEDDI, be sure to check-out the aforementioned all-things-root sticky:

    http://androidforums.com/epic-4g-touch-all-things-root/447510-samsung-epic-4g-touch-all-things-root-guide.html

    (although I must admit I simply gathered the links for seeding the guide--I have no hands-on or direct experience with this device).

    There's also quite a few threads already here in the all-things-root area that will hopefully steer you in the right directly or a helpful and knowledgeable Epic 4G Touch rooter will chime-in to assist you.

    Best of luck! :)

    I'm not sure. Neither one of us has that particular phone, so it's difficult to say. Let me ask the staff if anyone has any experience with these.

    Okay thanks man, all i want is to use my phone to Get internet on my computer, if you know any other way to work around the 4.0.4 update to get foxfi or pdanet to work that would be awesome as well!

    Sorry, no. I have the AT&T model and it's just different enough to screw things up for you. Hopefully someone will jump in here.

    If you don't find the solution PM me later. I'm out all day today, and I'll get you a link to an easy one click root that will work on any software version you have right now.

    Make sure you have Odin, Android SDK, and the right Samsung drivers then the one click solution will be a breeze!

    You have a GSII Epic 4G Touch right? That is the same phone I have, and I have used that many times.

    Well the build numbers they have for that guide are different than mine... Build number ff18 & model sph-d710

    The build number that you currently have doesn't matter. If you aren't comfortable with it though in a few days when I have a day off I'll upload my files to Google Drive and share the ones I used with you.

    specifially the 4.0.4 update O_O and also i just got the wireless tether apk and my SSID doesnt show up when i look for the wireless connections .... -_- there also isnt any download or upload speed incoming

    I would say do not do an OTA. I don't know what the effects are, because personally I always flash a custom ROM or flash a leak before the OTA is ever pushed.

    For tether use Wireless Tether, then change the device ID to galaxy nexus (CDMA/LTE)

    Honestly I just browse XDA. I don't know of a link with all the best. I am on CM9 alpha 6 right now and it is great. I have been following the progress of CM10 and an AOSP JB ROM on XDA, but those aren't quite stable enough for me to use yet.

    There is only the Epic 4G Touch on Sprint. As long is it is for the E4GT it will work for the E4GT, no other variation of the GSII.
