    Hi. Now that AT&T has rolled out this new update, how do I go about rooting it, as it was before?

    I reset my phone to be as new before I updated to 4.1.2. I read that I would have had major issues updating the phone while rooted, so I reset it.

    So I'm really curious to see how to root it now.

    Thanks for your time.

    The easiest way i can suggest rooting for that device is by using odin and chainfire's cf-root. it makes it fairly easy and hassle free, here are the steps :)

    - Download and extract Odin http://www.shabbypenguin.com/OUDstuff/Samsung/Boost/Rush/Odin3-v3.04.zip
    - Download and extract (just once) CF-Root Download
    - If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one
    - (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
    - Start Odin
    - Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
    - Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press volume up to continue, do so.
    - (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
    - Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
    - Click the Start button
    - Wait for Android to boot
    - Congrats you are rooted :)
